Emily Blunt Loved Playing Drunk For The Girl On The Train


Emily Blunt

For her role in the film adaptation of the bestseller The Girl on the Train, Emily Blunt was excited to get her head around a character unlike anyone she's ever played. "Rachel is very toxic, physically and emotionally," she says of her character. "She's an incredibly tortured, self-loathing sort of person, and I thought it was thrilling to have a protagonist that's a blackout drunk! So it was a combination of the personal challenge for me."

After playing a series of more heroic characters in films like Into the Woods, Edge of Tomorrow and Sicario, it was fun to play someone who was so unreliable. "Even if I don't agree with the things that she does, I have to understand her and empathise with the fact that she's taken life's setbacks harder than most people," Blunt explains.

Emily Blunt On Gender Double-Standards In Hollywood


Emily Blunt

Ahead of the release of her new movie The Girl On the Train, adapted from Paula Hawkins’ massive-selling blockbuster novel, Emily Blunt has discussed the double standards she believes exist in Hollywood when it comes to how men and woman are portrayed.

“With so many movies, women are held to what a man considers a feminine ideal,” says Blunt to The Hollywood Reporter. “You have to be pretty. You have to be 'likable,' which is my least favourite word in the industry. Rachel isn't 'likeable.' What does that mean? To be witty and pretty and hold it together and be there for the guy? And he can just be a total drip?”

There were some nice surprises in cinemas this year, with thoughtful thrillers, quality blockbusters, exhilarating franchise reboots and twists on familiar genres... A Girl Walks Home..., Inside Out, 45 Years

Bafta 2015 Nominations Reveal Secrets Of Awards Season


Timothy Spall BAFTA David Oyelowo Tom Wilkinson Carmen Ejogo Tim Roth Jack O'Connell Emily Blunt James Corden Daniel Huttlestone Tracey Ullman

Friday morning's British Academy Film Awards nominations show the predicted BAFTA love for home-grown movies like 'The Imitation Game' and 'The Theory of Everything', but were even more notable for who was missing from the shortlists.

Timothy Spall in Mr Turner
Timothy Spall - snubbed by the academy?

The most obvious snub was for Mike Leigh's acclaimed biographical drama 'Mr Turner', for which Timothy Spall won Best Actor at the Cannes Film Festival. But the film only has a handful of technical nods (for cinematography, production design, costumes and make-up/hair), with nothing for Spall or Leigh, and most surprisingly no British Film nomination.

Fairytale adaptations are gaining some serious popularity at the moment, while musicals on the big screen continue to be award magnets, put those two together and add an incredible ensemble cast and you have Rob Marshall's 'Into The Woods'.

This holiday season brings a rather special twist on the fairytale movie sub-genre, starring the likes of Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, Johnny Depp and Chris Pine. While it's clear that Hollywood is enjoying bringing Grimm and Perrault's stories to life with such creations as 'Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters' and the Emmy nominated series 'Once Upon A Time', 'Into The Woods' goes that step further. With an excellent musical score by the Academy Award winning Stephen Sondheim (composer of 'Sweeney Todd', contributor of 'Dick Tracy' and 'West Side Story' lyricist), we're expecting this movie to join that ever-popular brand of Oscar worthy musical cinema.

In a move that many comic book aficionados may not have expected, Marvel Comics has announced that one of their most dominant male characters has been given a sex change. In the new comic series due out in October, Thor, based on the Norse God of Thunder and one of Marvel's 'big three', will be a female character. But this isn't just big news for fans of the printed material.

The character Thor has had a huge impact on screen as well and has been involved in two hugely successful films, Thor and Thor: The Dark World and is an integral part of The Avengers ensemble and its forthcoming sequel.

So, the big question is: who will play this new female fighting force when it inevitably hits the cinemas?

'Edge Of Tomorrow' Continues Hollywood's Dalliance With The Time-Loop


Tom Cruise Emily Blunt

Tom Cruise's new hit Edge of Tomorrow is the latest Hollywood blockbuster to take on the theme of time travel, something that always generates extra interest for audiences. Cruise may be new to time-hopping, but his costar Emily Blunt is a veteran of the genre, having starred with Joseph Gordon-Levitt in 2012's Looper.

Tom Cruise Edge of TomorrowTom Cruise in 'Edge of Tomorrow'

Of course, this isn't even the only time travel movie in cinemas at the moment. X-Men: Days of Future Past is still raking in a record haul with a plot that seems eerily similar to 1984's The Terminator. The 80s were a great decade for time travel, from the iconic trilogy-launching Back to the Future (1985) to Keanu Reeves' breakout comedy Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure (1989).

'Edge Of Tomorrow' May Be Recycled, But It's Not Rubbish


Tom Cruise Emily Blunt Brendan Gleeson Doug Liman

Fancy an action blockbuster this weekend? Doug Liman's hotly anticipated new sci-fi action epic Edge of Tomorrow finally sees its US release today and is set for a monster opening. Well, the critical winds are certainly blowing in the right direction: the film is unabashedly action-packed but complements its meat-headedness with moral dilemmas and a disturbing view of the future of humanity.

Tom Cruise takes the lead in this military sci-fi movie, playing a man reliving his death in battle against an alien force over and over again. Cruise plays Lt. Col. Bill Cage and co-star Emily Blunt is Special Forces soldier Rita Vrataski in this exciting new alien combat thriller.

Adapted by Screenwriter Dante Harper, Edge of Tomorrow is based on Hiroshi Sakurazaka's Japanese light novel All You Need Is Kill which combines a mind-boggling time loop scenario - think Groundhog Day crossed with Source Code - with heart-racing action scenes, evoking Cruise's own Oblivion and Matt Damon's Elysium.

You Don't Need Additional Tickets To Relive Magic Of 'Edge Of Tomorrow'


Tom Cruise Emily Blunt

We got pretty excited when the first reviews of Edge of Tomorrow started trickling in a couple of weeks back. Perhaps we were just surprised that what on the face of it appeared a formulaic action sci-fi movie was actually an original, hard-hitting, humorous blockbuster. Perhaps we were just happy for good old Tom Cruise.

Edge of TomorrowTom Cruise as Major William Cage in 'Edge of Tomorrow'

The Rotten Tomatoes score of 95% has since eased to 90% but this still marks a significant success for both Warner Bros and Cruise. The action unfolds in a near future in which an alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault. Major William Cage - an office who has never seen a day of combat - his dropped into what amounts to a suicide mission and dies within minutes. However, Cage finds himself in a time-loop forcing him to live out the same brutal combat day in, day out. It's Groundhog day, with aliens, basically. After a strong showing in various international markets, Edge of Tomorrow gets a U.S release on Friday (June 6, 2014) and the critics are uproarious.

Critics Happy To Live, Die And Repeat As 'Edge Of Tomorrow' Scores High


Tom Cruise Emily Blunt

Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt star in ‘Edge of Tomorrow’, a sci-fi romp with Groundhog Day elements and an increasingly worried protagonist thrown in to battle an alien invasion that show no signs of abating. Stuck in a loop – live, die, repeat, as the film’s tagline reads – Cruise’s character Lt. Col. Bill Cage relies on Rita Vrataski’s (Blunt) smarts to break the cycle.

Edge of TomorrowEmily Blunt and Tom Cruise star in 'Edge of Tomorrow'

“Tom Cruise stars in this cleverly crafted and propulsively executed sci-fi thriller about a soldier forced to relive the same day over and over again,” writes Variety’s Justin Chang. “If “Groundhog Day” is an obvious influence, then those “Choose Your Own Adventure” novels are another (amusingly, whenever Rita feels they’ve taken a wrong or unproductive turn, she simply whips out her gun and resets the clock),” he adds.

'The Wind Rises' Stuns Critics As Hayao Miyazaki Leaves On A High

If ‘The Wind Rises’ is really to be Hayao Miyazaki’s last feature, then he certainly departs the medium at a good moment, receiveing critical acclaim for his historical drama, which also achivieved commercial success by being Japan’s highest grossing film of 2013.

The Wind RisesJiro dreams of taking to the sky

Admist the backdrop of 1927 Japan, ‘The Wind Rises’ follows Jiro, who wants to take to the sky in beautiful planes of his own design - inspired by the famous Italian aeronautical designer Caproni. For Jiro, aeroplanes aren’t intended for war or for profit, but to help realise the dreams of many; to soar above the clouds.

The Three Possibilities For Tom Cruise's 'Edge Of Tomorrow'


Tom Cruise Emily Blunt

Tom Cruise’s character in ‘Edge of Tomorrow’, Major William Cage, isn’t just thrown into a suicide mission; he’s thrown into hundreds of suicide missions. See, he can’t die, not permanently anyway. He lives, he dies, he repeats. That’s the bones of the premise for this sci-fi action flick, which also stars Emily Blunt.

Edge of TomorrowEmily Blunt and Tom Cruise in 'Edge of Tomorrow'

And it would appear that there are three possible outcomes for this film: ‘Stinker’, ‘wait for the DVD’ or ‘best thing ever’. Here are the possibilities of all those outcomes, using the scientifically disapproved methods: guesswork, conjecture and prejudgement.

While at university, he meets a young woman named Naoko who he helps off a train during the Great Kanto Earthquake and the pair become close.

Emily Blunt & John Krasinski Expecting Their First Child!


Emily Blunt John Krasinski

Emily Blunt and John Krasinski have a bun in the oven, it was revealed this week. Speaking to Us Weekly, a rep for the British actress confirmed that the young couple are already a few weeks into the pregnancy and are eagerly anticipating the birth of their first child.

The Hollywood pair tied the knot at a celebrity-filled ceremony in Italy in 2010 and since then they have quietly been negotiating the terms of how and when to start a family. The two, Blunt in particular, have made no secret of their desire to one day start a family and settle down, and it looks as though now is the time for them to begin family life. Blunt's rep said, "They both want kids, it's one of the reasons they got a bigger place, in a neighborhood that you can raise a family. They both couldn't be more excited."

After Career Building, A Thriving Relationship And Lots Of Preparation, Emily Blunt And John Krasinski Announce Pregnancy


Emily Blunt John Krasinski

Congratulations Emily Blunt and John Krasinski! The Looper actress (30) and the Office favorite (33) made a surprise announcement this week – Blunt is pregnant with the couple’s first child. The rep who confirmed the news to Us Weekly , offered no further details, perhaps because there really can’t be too many further details this early on.

Emily Blunt, LAX
The Devil Wears Prada actress is about to become a first time mom.

However, according to Us, the baby is due in “just a few short month,” which is good to know, but is also generally true of most human pregnancies. There are no medical professionals on this writing team though, so we stand corrected on that one. The actors have mentioned in separate interviews that they wanted to have children before. It was just a matter of timing, apparently. And with the kind of bond these two seem to share, a baby sounds like a lovely and welcome new development.

On a brisk but otherwise unremarkable day, Londoners might've been disturbed to see the sight of two people in combat gear wielding guns and generally causing a scene. They can relax, though, because it was merely Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt shooting scenes for the forthcoming science-fiction film All You Need Is Kill. The film, which isn't expected to see daylight until 2014, is based on the Japanese light novel of the same name by writer Hiroshi Sakurazaka and acts as a sort of sci-fi alien vs. human Groundhog Day.

A Year Of Surprises? Golden Globes Have No Clear Winner


Helen Mirren Maggie Smith Judi Dench Naomi Watts Emily Blunt Daniel Day Lewis Ben Affleck

This year's Golden Globes ceremony takes place tonight (Jan 13), and its categories - much like the categories in most of this years awards - look wide open.

At the Golden Globes in particular, it looks as though this year could see the bulk of the prizes going to British recipients, with the ladies in particular providing hope that a few gongs will be getting sent across the Atlantic. Dames Helen Mirren, Maggie Smith and Judi Dench are all vying for awards, with Dame Smith up for two acting gongs - for The Quartet and Downton Abbey. Meanwhile Aussie-Brit Naomi Watts, Emily Blunt and Rachel Weisz are up for awards, whilst Daniel Day-Lewis is looking like the man to beat in the Best Actor category.

Still, Day-Lewis could be beat, meaning he will have to wait til his next film to take his tally of awards up a notch (he always gets nominated at the very least). Joaquin Phoenix and Denzel Washington are probably his biggest threats, but really the award is pretty much Lewis' already. If he doesn't win though, there's a pretty good chance that Damien Lewis could bring the gold home for the UK, being nominated in the television category for Best Actor for his role on Homeland.

The Brits Are Coming! Ewan McGregor And Emily Blunt Score Golden Globe Nominations


Ewan McGregor Emily Blunt Judi Dench Rachel Weisz Steven Spielberg Ben Affleck Anne Hathaway

Several British stars scored Golden Globe nominations on Friday morning (December 14, 2012), with Tom Hooper's Les Miserables looking the UK's best hope of scoring a statuette. The musical is in the running for Best Picture (Comedy of Musical), as well as a string of acting awards.

Though the Globes is considered a solid barometer for the Oscars, it has been criticised for shaping its nominations to attract as many big name stars as possible. In 2011, Johnny Depp was nominated for his role in the critically panned The Tourist, leading host Ricky Gervais to joke, "It seems like everything this year was three-dimensional.except the characters in The Tourist." Nevertheless, several lesser known movies from the past year received nominations, including Ewan McGregor and Emily Blunt's Salmon Fishing in the Yemen. Judi Dench received a nod for Best Exotic Marigold Hotel while Helen Mirren and Rachel Weisz will compete for the Best Actress (Drama) award for their roles in Hitchcock and The Deep Blue Sea respectively. "It's the first major red carpet occasion of awards season," said Nick James, editor of the film magazine Sight & Sound, "so the HFPA need the maximum number of dresses on that carpet, and the widest range of hot talent on their list. They probably have a small eye on that, but I don't think it's too bent in that direction."

Though British stars were listed in today's nominations, it is likely to be Ben Affleck, Steven Spielberg, Kathryn Bigelow, Daniel Day Lewis, Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathway who contest the major prizes.

One of the most respected independent awards ceremonies on the circuit, the 22nd annual Gotham Independent Film Awards took place last night (November 26, 2012) at the Capriani in New York, seeing both established stars and rising up and comers rubbing shoulders. Firmly in the former camp are Oscar winning pair Marion Cotillard and Matt Damon; the two stars were presented with honorary awards for their time in the film industry. Cotillard, at least, has her eyes on another chance to scoop the ultimate prize, her performance in Rust & Bone being talked up for another best actress win at the Oscars.

Tom Cruise Dons A Robot Suit And Sprints Through Fire In First Peek At 'All You Need Is Kill'


Tom Cruise Emily Blunt Doug Liman Katie Holmes

Tom Cruise looks ready for action as the first still of the upcoming movie All You Need Is Kill was released today, showing Cruise sprinting through a fiery explosion in a futuristic robot exoskeleton.

The film, being filmed in the UK over the summer, sees Cruise star as Lt. Col. Bill Cage, a soldier fighting in a war with aliens who finds himself caught in a time loop of his last day in the battle, honing his skills with each repetition.

The film, set for a 2014 release, is being directed by Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity), and will also star Brit golden girl Emily Blunt and Bill Paxton, who will portray the hard-as-nails platoon leader. It will be one of six films that Cruise is said to be starring in since his well pulicised split from ex-wife Katie Holmes, including an updated version of the story of Van Helsing, another instalment of the Mission Impossible series and even a rumoured appearance in the announced Top Gun sequel.

Baby No.2 On The Way For Sophie Dahl And Jamie Cullum

Sophie Dahl and Jamie Cullum are adding to their brood! The Mirror have pictured Sophie and Jamie together at the Harper’s Bazaar’s Women of the Year awards bash at Claridge’s in London. Sophie was sporting not only a beautifully patterned green, blue and black dress but was also sporting a bit of a baby bump, too. The actress and TV cook confirmed that she and jazz singer Jamie are indeed awaiting a new arrival. They already have a daughter, Lyra, who was born in March 2011.

The couple attended the glamorous awards ceremony, which also boasted guests such as Erin O’Connor and Yasmin Le Bon, with whom Sophie is already familiar, from her modelling days. The former X Files star Gillian Anderson was also in attendance, as was Rosamund Pike and Daisy Lowe.

Amongst the winners at the Woman of the Year awards were Team GB Olympics athletes Jessica Ennis, Victoria Pendleton and Ellie Simmonds, who were all awarded a British Ambassador of the Year prize. Emily Blunt, Marion Cotillard and Stella Mccartney were all also awarded prizes during the star-studded ceremony. It’s been a successful week for Jessica Ennis, in particular, who was crowned the Ultimate Olympian at the Cosmopolitan’s own awards the nigt before, at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.

Harper's Bazaar's Women Of The Year 2012 All Dazzled In More Ways Than One


Emily Blunt Jessica Ennis Victoria Pendleton Ellie Simmonds Vivienne Westwood Cindy Sherman Ruth Wilson Emeli Sande

All of the guests and winners at last night's Harpers Bazaar Women of the Year Awards looked utterly stunning on the red carpet. Many have noted Emily Blunt's show-stopping backless orange number, and how beautiful Daisy Lowe looked in her timelessly-classic sequined gown, but the wardrobes of the guests were not the reason anyone showed up, nor why the awards are so important to the influential women of the world. 

"Now we [women] are expected to do everything, which probably isn't human," the Telegraph quotes Stella McCartney saying "and we are in danger of burning out if we try to do everything." A full interview with McCartney, as well as with other winners of the awards, will be published in the December issue of Harper's Bazaar, which will be dedicated to the women. French actress Marion Cotillard will appear on the front cover, with whom the magazine also has a full interview inside. 

In a year flush with the monarchy, Queen Elizabeth has also won the accolade of Icon of the Year. The queen has as yet not commented upon this win, but we've no doubt she'll be celebrating in her own way. Ambassadors of the year were awarded to three of this year's Olympic winners, Jessica Ennis, Victoria Pendleton and Ellie Simmons, who have jointly provided brand new, healthy role models for young women today. A special award was given In Memoriam to Marie Colvin who was an American reporter, killed earlier this year while covering the siege of Homs in Syria, where a nail bomb exploded, killing her.

There was an Olympic feel on the red carpet of the Harper's Bazaar Women Of The Year Awards (not to be confused with the Bizarre Women Of The Year Awards, which we imagine would be quite a different ceremony) but one actress managed to fend them all off in the glamour stakes, with Emily Blunt looking delightful in an Alexander McQueen orange gown with sparkly neckline. It was a wonderful outfit for the actress to wear as she scooped the British actor of the year award at the event held at Claridge's Hotel in London.

Looper Review


Excellent

For a time travel thriller, this film is remarkably free of head-scratching anomalies in the plot, instead concentrating on richly developed characters and goosebump-inducing action. This is an unusually intimate action blockbuster, which gives the cast a chance to do something more resonant than we expect. And writer-director Rian Johnson takes a Christopher Nolan-style approach to the story, using intelligence and strikingly inventive filmmaking to draw us in.

Johnson is also reuniting with his Brick star Gordon-Levitt. He plays Joe, a looper in 2044 Kansas whose job is to kill men who are sent back 30 years in time by the mob, even though time travel has been outlawed. Joe knows that one day his victim will be his older self, sent back to close his loop, giving him 30 years of retirement. But when the older Joe (Willis) appears, he escapes, and now a manhunt is on. If Joe doesn't catch his older self, his boss (Daniels) will do something even more drastic than a vicious henchman (Dillahunt) has in mind. So Joe hides out in a rural farmhouse with single mother Sara (Blunt) and her young son Cid (Gagnon), with whom Joe creates an unusual bond.

The film is beautifully shot and edited, with a noir tone established by a knowing narration and the fact that most characters are addicted to a drug they take as eye-drops. And while it opens with some lively humour and witty edginess, things become darker as the story unfolds, especially when older Joe starts hunting Terminator-style for the younger version of an evil man who has too much power in the future. The hitch is that this man is a 5-year-old in the present day.

Continue reading: Looper Review

Looper Trailer


Joe Simmons is a looper from Kansas City in 2042; a hitman hired to assassinate victims sent to him by a gang of mobsters from thirty years into the future through the outlawed method of time travel. The only rule put to him is that the targets must not escape. One day, on his regular duties, a new victim shows up who happens to be without the customary sack over his head. When he looks up, Joe recognises the man as an older version of himself and his sudden shock gives his future self the opportunity to disarm him and make a break for it. When Joe's criminal employees find out about the escape, they set out to destroy him for his failure. It doesn't take long for him to convince himself that he must kill his future self despite the fact that he is being used in order for the lawless organisation to 'close the loop'.

Video - Emily Blunt Ignores Photographers Compliments As She Leaves Hair Salon


'The Devil Wears Prada' star Emily Blunt snubs photographers greetings and compliments as she leaves a West Hollywood hair salon and jumps into her black Toyota parked nearby.

The 29-year-old actress, who is set to star in the upcoming sci-fi action movie 'Looper' alongside Joseph Gordon-Levitt, is definitely looking better in this video than she did as she left a gym earlier today (July 24th 2012) after her pilates class wearing a grey T-shirt with embarrassing sweat patches in the armpit and stomach area in pictures reported by the Daily Mail

Your Sister's Sister Review


Weak
As with Humpday, writer-director Shelton plays around with transgressive sexuality in this lively, watchable comedy-drama. The problem is that instead of dissipating, the underlying sense of homophobia is aggressively offensive this time.

A year after his brother's death, Jack (Duplass) has become best friends with his brother's ex Iris (Blunt), who suggests that he take some time out in her father's island cabin outside Seattle. When he arrives, Iris' sister Hannah (DeWitt) is there, nursing her pain from the breakup of a long-term relationship. After a few drinks they end up in bed, which is a problem for two reasons: Hannah is a lesbian who wants a baby, and Iris arrives the next day to tell her sister that she's in love with Jack.

The Five-Year Engagement Review


Excellent
Segel and Stoller repeat their duties from 2008's Forgetting Sarah Marshall and come up with another hilarious romantic-comedy for grown-ups. It's corny, but it keeps us laughing all the way through while stirring in some genuinely sweet moments.

A year after they met, San Francisco chef Tom (Segel) proposes to his girlfriend Violet (Blunt), but their excited wedding plans are interrupted when Violet gets a post-doc position at the University of Michigan. So they postpone the wedding and head to the snowy Midwest. There, Violet's career soars while Tom has little to do beyond making sandwiches in a deli and going hunting with his new friends. And before they can set a new date, Violet's sister (Brie) marries and has two kids with Tom's best pal (Pratt).

"Your Sister's Sister" star Emily Blunt poses for the cameras at the film's premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival, New York City. The director Lynn Shelton ("Humpday", "My Effortless Brilliance") soon joins her after sharing a friendly greeting.

The 29-year-old British actress (who is also known for her parts in "The Devil Wears Prada" and "The Adjustment Bureau") stars alongside Mark Duplass ("Humpday") and Rosemarie DeWitt ("Cinderella Man") in this comedy drama. Also spotted at the premiere was 30-year-old musician Natasha Bedingfield who released her eleventh album, "Strip Me Away", in May 2011

Salmon Fishing In The Yemen Review


Good
The heavy hand of a screenwriter (or perhaps novelist) intrudes on an otherwise jaunty, engaging little story, fruitlessly trying to stir up suspense when none was needed. And filmmaker Hallstrom indulges in rather too much sappy sentiment.

Fred (McGregor) is a UK government fishing expert assigned to help a wildly wealthy sheikh (Waked) create a fly-fishing site in the Yemen. Working with the sheikh's financial advisor Harriet (Blunt), Fred struggles to overcome his doubts about the scheme. But he's won over by the fact that the sheikh is both passionate about fishing and has enough cash to achieve the seemingly impossible. As Fred begins to fall for Harriet, he'll need to make a decision about his estranged wife (Stirling), while Harriet's special-services boyfriend (Mison) has gone missing in action.

Video - Emily Blunt Leaves La Salon, Set To Star Alongside Johnny Depp?


British bombshell Emily Blunt is seen here leaving Beverly Hills beauty salon Byron and Tracey, a familiar haunt of some of Hollywood's brightest stars. The star, who achieved wide critical acclaim for her titular performance in Young Victoria has set the rumour mills spinning as she tops the list of potential female leads alongside Johnny Depp in an upcoming remake of The Thin Man. Given her calm demeanour as she left the salon it seems that she is unfazed by any rumours.

Last seen in the hilarious Muppets as the secretary for Miss Piggy, Blunt will next be seen in the British produced Salmon Fishing in the Yemen along side Ewan Mcgregor and Kristin Scott Thomas.

Salmon Fishing In The Yemen Trailer


Dr. Fred Jones is a middle-aged scientist working for the National Centre for Fisheries Excellence in London. One day, he gets a call from a Harriet Chetwode-Talbot, who works for a sheik. The sheik has had an idea to introduce the British sport of salmon fishing to the Yemen, in the Middle East. However, Fred flatly refuses when meeting with Harriet in London, saying the idea is ridiculous and pointing out that the fish could not survive in the very different environment. He leaves the meeting and the matter is soon forgotten about.

Sometime later, British politicians receive word that a bomb exploded in the Middle East. Politician Bridget Maxwell is reluctant to release the news story, saying that she does not want to make the war on Afghanistan any worse. Instead, she instructs her colleagues to find a positive news story from the Middle East to release. After several failed attempts, they discover plans to introduce salmon fishing in the Yemen.

With pressure from the government, Fred has no choice but to go ahead with the idea and so he travels to the Yemen to meet the sheik and Harriet. During his time there, he discovers to his surprise that the sport is a great success. He also finds himself falling for Harriet. While Fred has always had a dull life, he soon finds himself becoming happier and more relaxed the longer he stays in the Yemen and with Harriet.

Emily Blunt, Interview


Interview with Emily Blunt for the DVD release of The Adjustment Bureau

You worked a lot on your dance moves for this film.
I did work quite a lot on the moves. It was interesting to start out because I never had any previous dance experience. It was terrifying and really embarrassing to do something every day that you're horrible at and you're surrounded by brilliant dancers. I think when I first came in they were all looking at me like, "Oh, here's some actress who thinks she can do what we do" and they were tough on me. It was tough love and I think that is what I needed. It's extraordinary because when you get through the first month - I had about eight weeks solid dancing before I started shooting. But when you get over that first month it starts to feel more organic and doesn't feel so alien. But the training is an endurance test. These dancers are athletes.

The Adjustment Bureau Review


Very Good
It's impossible to avoid comparing this film to both Inception and The Truman Show, as it delves into the issue of free will from a fantastical perspective.

But this is a lighter movie, focussing on romance rather than weighty themes.

David (Damon) is a hotshot Congressman destined for greatness when a past indiscretion derails his Senate campaign. Not to worry: the Adjustors (Slattery and Mackie) will put things back to plan. But in the process there's a blip: David meets Elise (Blunt) and can't get her out of his head. He also discovers the existence of the Bureau, and subverting their plan becomes his goal. So they call in feared Adjustor Thompson (Stamp), and over the next four years the cat-and-mouse game escalates.

What if our future was planned, if everything in life was part of one big plan, sometimes being in the right place at the right time is more important than you'd think, and if you're running late, the consequences can be greater than you realise. One event may lead onto a totally different outcome. Politician David Norris is about to learn just how important his set fate is to the world. After meeting an intriguing and beautiful woman called Elise, Norris is instantly drawn to her but their first meeting should have been their only one yet when fate gives him a break he once again sees Elise.

Gnomeo & Juliet Review


Very Good
With its Toy Story meets Shrek approach, this animated romp feels somewhat derivative. It's all snarky dialog and whizzy action. But it's also silly enough to keep both adults and children chuckling.

Gnomeo (voiced by McAvoy), son of Lady Bluebury (Smith), is the leader of the blue Montague garden. Accompanied by his sidekick Benny (Lucas), Gnomeo engages in tit-for-tat warfare with the red Capulets next door. Then he meets Juliet (Blunt), daughter of Lord Redbrick (Caine), and it's love at first sight. Which sends red warrior Tybalt (Statham) into a rage. As they plot a secret life together, Gnomeo and Juliet are assisted by Juliet's frog friend Nanette (Jensen) and the garden flamingo Featherstone (Cummings). But can these star-crossed lovers find happiness?

Gulliver's Travels Review


OK
Jonathan Swift's 1726 novel is given the Jack Black treatment in this lively, colourful romp, which isn't nearly as funny as it thinks it is. But the childish rudeness will keep children giggling.

Lemuel Gulliver (Black) works in the mailroom at a New York newspaper, where he torments a young colleague (Miller) and pines after the travel editor (Peet).

After convincing her to let him write a story on the Bermuda Triangle, he's shipwrecked in Lilliput, an island populated by people who are 6 inches tall.
