Mary Poppins Returns

Mary Poppins Returns
Director: Rob Marshall
Writers: David Magee
Cast: Emily Blunt, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ben Whishaw, Emily Mortimer, Julie Walters, Dick Van Dyke, Angela Lansbury, Colin Firth, Meryl Streep
Studio: Walt Disney Studios
Rated PG | 129 Minutes
Release Date: December 19, 2018

The idea of continuing the story of Mary Poppins may seem absurd at first. After all, it has been 54 years since the original film, starring Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke, was released. And now, Disney has released a sequel,
Mary Poppins Returns. Of course, there are new younger stars to appear to take over some of the previous roles left behind by the cast of the first film. But that doesn’t mean much has changed. Emily Blunt carries on the spirit of the eponymous character, played originally by Andrews, and makes it her own. Additionally, Lin-Manuel Miranda is a pure joy to watch as his eyes light up with child-like wonder when Poppins returns.

Mary Poppins Returns Starring Emily Blunt

Everyone has some sort of experience watching Mary Poppins in some form or another. Although it has been over half a century since Julie Andrews graced the screen as Poppins, the title character lives on in fans’ hearts and dreams. Now she’s back in Mary Poppins Returns. Well, the character, at least. This time Emily Blunt takes on the role made famous by Andrews in 1964. She brings back the warm charm and snark that fans know about the seemingly magical British nanny.

We were fortunate enough to join our fellow journalists to talk to the cast about the sequel, where Blunt addressed what it was like to play the role and what she did to prepare for it. Check out what she had to say below.

Jungle Cruise Starring Emily Blunt and Dwayne Johnson

Disney has been trying to create a new series of film franchises based on their slate of original rides at their theme parks. Although, that has been met with mixed results. While Pirates of the Caribbean has proven to be a huge franchise, the long-gestating Haunted Mansion ride has proven to be a little difficult to get off the ground. Luckily, Disney has other rides to work with. Their latest is Jungle Cruise, starring Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt as they set off an adventure to find an ancient tree with mystical healing properties.

Now the film is starting production, and to commemorate, Disney has released a brand new video featuring the two fighting for some screen time. It is amusing for the most part as the two riff off of each other. Check out the charming video below.

A Quiet Place

Back in November we saw the first teaser trailer for A Quiet Place, an upcoming horror movie written by, directed by, and starring John Krasinski (The Office, 13 Hours). Then we saw a Super Bowl TV spot and interview with Krasinski earlier this month.

Now Paramount Pictures has released an official trailer for the film, which also stars Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, and Noah Jupe. The story involves a family who is forced to live in a secluded area and in complete silence in order to avoid attracting the attention of a mysterious danger, which thrives on any sounds someone might make.

A Quiet Place

It’s ironic that Paramount Pictures would drop A Quiet Place TV spot during what could be the loudest game of the year, but that’s what they did during tonight’s Super Bowl broadcast. The entire film’s characters’ survival hinges on their ability to stay as quiet as possible. If they don’t, they risk being killed by shadowy hunters who hear like a bat. The film comes from director John Krasinski, who also stars in the film with his real-life actress wife Emily Blunt. While the first trailer gave us a small glimpse of what family life is like when living in silence, this new trailer throws in all the scares at you, and never misses a beat. Check out the Super Bowl spot and featurette here below.
