Emily Blunt has some very big shoes to fill when she steps into the role of Mary Poppins in the upcoming Mary Poppins Returns. But the actress, who will begin filming the sequel early next year, has already been given the backing of the legendary Julie Andrews, who first played the role in 1964.

Australian actress Robbie, 26, is tipped for the role in a forthcoming 007 movie, which will be the 25th film in the franchise and the first for a brand new Bond actor. She’s currently the 12/1 favourite for a role in the notional sequel to Spectre, according to Irish company Paddy Power in a report in The Sun.

There were some nice surprises in cinemas this year, with thoughtful thrillers, quality blockbusters, exhilarating franchise reboots and twists on familiar genres...
10. A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night
An Iranian vampire movie shot in California, this super-cool black and white comedy-thriller is witty, scary and sexy. It's also so original that it takes the breath away.

The Bafta nominations have been revealed, leading to some shock by what has been missed out from the ceremony.
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 - 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.

'Into The Woods' brings together some excellent stories, a stellar cast and a fantastic composer.
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'.
Meryl Streep plays the wicked witch in '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.

'Edge of Tomorrow' has scored strong reviews from critics.
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 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).

[Spoilers] We've seen a thousand alien battles, but this one is re-hashed with creativity.
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.

'Edge of Tomorrow' is very, very good. So go watch it.
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.
Tom 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.

'Edge of Tomorrow' is released on May 30
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.
Emily 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.

Hayao Miyazaki's swan song is a more grown up, melodramatic affair
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.
Jiro 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.

Predicting if films will be good or bad is a useful but enjoyable process.
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.

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.

When Jiro Horikoshi was a young boy, all he ever dreamed about was flying planes - at least he did until one night he came across Italian plane designer Caproni in one of his dreams, who subsequently told him that his poor vision means he'll never be a pilot.

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. His life begins to spiral, however, with his work projects becoming few and far between and Naoko's health deteriorating. But will Jiro finally realise his dream and build an aircraft of pure beauty?

Brit actress Blunt and her 'The Office'-star husband Krasinski announced this week that she is pregnant with their first child. Congratulations!
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 married couple are expecting their first child together
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."

The announcement comes after numerous comments from the couple that they are ready and willing to have a child together.
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.
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.
The pair tied the knot in a huge ceremony this Saturday.
This Saturday, Jimmy Kimmel married his longtime partner and the co-head writer of Jimmy Kimmel Live, Molly McNearney. According to Us Weekly, both the 45-year-old host and his ladylove, 35, chose very classic looks for their special day – he in a black and white tux and she in a flowing white strapless gown with a diamond-encrusted sash.
The couple have been together for several years.
The diamonds weren’t the only sparkling thing at the star-studded wedding, however. The reception was attended by a slew of A-listers, including Ben Affleck and wife Jennifer Garner, Matt Damon and wife Luciana, Jennifer Aniston and fiance Justin Theroux, Ellen Degeneres and wife Portia De Rossi, Emily Blunt and husband John Krasinski, Howard Stern and Johnny Knoxville were all on the guestlist of some 300 of Kimmel and McNearney’s closest friends and family.
The trio are among an already impressive line-up due to appear in the Broadway musical adaptation.
Emily Blunt, Jake Gyllenhaal and Chris Pine all look set to join up with Johnny Depp, James Cordon and Meryl Streep in the upcoming Disney flick Into The Woods. According to Variety the British actress and the two American actors are in advanced talks with Disney to take on a starring roles in the upcoming movie, which is being directed by Rob Marshall.
The film is based on the 1987 Stephen Sondheim fantasy Broadway musical of the same name, which revolves around a childless baker and his wife as they attempt to lift a family curse by going into the enchanted woods to confront the witch that first cast the spell on them.
Emily Blunt is set to star in the upcoming film
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 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.
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.
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.

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.

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.

The film celebrates the D-list world of third-rate celebrities, celebrities whose popularity has waned, whose 15 minutes of fame were over a long time ago, with one-night stands not in Vegas or L.A., but Bakersfield and Akron.

Adams, especially, commands attention as she dials down her natural sunniness, her chirpy voice slightly deflated and her smiles a little more forced. Rose has a shabby apartment, an eight-year-old son, and a job with a maid service to pay for both. She also has motel-room trysts with a local cop (Steve Zahn), who suggests, offhand, that she might parlay her maid skills into a crime-scene clean-up business. In need of money to send her son to private school, Rose seizes on the idea, and drags Norah along with her.

Charlie Wilson's War is entertaining, and that's about the extent of it. Nichols and Sorkin's end result is decidedly a gloss on Crile's account of how the eponymous Texas congressman managed to supply military support to the Afghan Mujahideen fighting the Soviet occupation in the 1980s. While their movie mostly avoids the Hollywood trappings of political correctness and underdog sentimentality, it also doesn't have the chutzpah of its own conniving characters to offer much in the way of an incisive interpretation of those events.

Steve Carell is the Dan of Real Life, and his touching turn as an unassuming newspaper columnist and father of three girls exists on a level above the film's perfectly acceptable cast -- no small feat considering that Dianne Wiest, John Mahoney, and Juliette Binoche contribute to the ensemble.

A chick-lit-flick, Book Club is poorly directed by Robin Swicord from her own inconsistent adaptation of Karen Jay Fowler's novel about five women (and one coerced man) who use Austen's novels as a means to escape their broken lives. They cover one book a month, and we roll our eyes as their individual problems mirror the quandaries found in Austen's chapters.

We've all had the proverbial "bad job." In fact, so many people have had the proverbial bad job that there's a cottage industry of books and movies about having a bad job. From 9 to 5 to Office Space, the evil bosses of the world never seem to catch a break.
The Devil Wears Prada is the latest in that line and an indictment of the fashion magazine industry, based on author Lauren Weisberger's experience as an assistant to the notoriously fussy Vogue editor Anna Wintour. The film follows every tradition we've come to expect from this genre: Plucky yet unrefined Andrea (she rides the subway!) is fresh off the boat from college. She soon lucks into a job offer from Runway editor Miranda Priestly (Meryl Streep), and we know from the first scene it's going to be a terrible match.

Tamsin, too, has some grief in her life. Her unfaithful father never gives her the time of day, and she has yet to get over the death of her sister.

When they meet, this pair with nothing in common discoversan addicting synergy between them that escalates into obsession that knowsfew boundaries, be they psychological or even sexual. "If you leaveme, I'll kill you," they swear to each other as if it were the mostloving promise in the world.
