TV Spot for ‘Edge of Tomorrow’!

During Sunday night’s MTV Movie Awards, Warner Bros. Pictures released the first TV spot for the sci-fi thriller Edge of Tomorrow starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt.


Emily Blunt as Ms. Marvel?

Hopefully more female character films will be on the rise! After Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow portrayal in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, this will soon become a reality. Her character held her own in a male dominated cast as the only female combatant. I believe her screen time in both films helped bring other female teammates to the big screen such as, Wasp in Ant-Man and Gomora from Guardians of the Galaxy.
After seeing Captain America: The Winter Soldier, my mind started to wonder what would be the end result of the Black Widow, had Blunt taken the job? Remember she was originally cast to play the Black Widow, but because of previous scheduling conflicts, the deal didn’t work out. I also started to think about IF Blunt had taken the role of Black Widow, would that have opened up the doors for Scarlett Johansson as Ms. Marvel?! Missed opportunity, so sad
The more I thought about the idea, the more I started to like it. I mean, what’s done is done, and Blunt had little control over how things turned out, but I couldn’t help but flirt with the idea. I’m getting the inkling that Emily Blunt may have made a slightly better Black Widow, and Johansson would have made an great Ms. Marvel (her casting may have also helped catapult the project into gear a lot quicker). I mean, if you’ve seen the trailer for Johansson’s upcoming movie Lucy, it does have a Ms. Marvel feel to it, don’t you agree? (Besides the plot sounding similar to the film Limitless)
Thor and Thor: The Dark World star Natalie Portman hinted a while back that Marvel is definitely planning a solo female superhero film. With the most talked about superheroine being Ms. Marvel. With The Vision joining The Avengers 2, fans may also get to see Ms. Marvel introduced after all. She’s been name dropped by Marvel co-president Louis D’Esposito as a character of interest for a Marvel One-Shot and Hollywood talent. The most rumored name to come up is actress just happens to be…Emily Blunt. Blunt has gone on the record to say that she still wants to work with Marvel, so her getting the role of Ms. Marvel, wouldn’t come as a surprise if she got the part. Given her rising fame, Blunt would also be the type of recognizable (but still affordable) name that Marvel wants to have on a marquee. I think Scarlett Johansson is good as the Black Widow. Emily Blunt is a fantastic, under appreciated actress that I think would be great for Ms. Marvel.


Del Toro to join Emily Blunt in Sicario

After winning an Oscar for his turn as a Mexican cop in Traffic, Benicio Del Toro is heading south of the border again, as he’s nearing a deal to star opposite Emily Blunt in Denis Villeneuve’s thriller Sicario, multiple individuals familiar with the project have told TheWrap.
Taylor Sheridan penned the script, which follows a SWAT officer (Blunt) who travels to Mexico with a pair of mercenaries to track down a drug lord. Del Toro will play an assassin hired by the U.S. government to help bring down the Cartels, which are responsible for the death of his family.
Basil Iwanyk will produce with Edward McDonnell and Black Label Media’s Molly Smith, Thad Luckinbill and Trent Luckinbill. Villeneuve recently directed Prisoners and has had his eye on del Toro for some time, while Blunt is coming off strong female roles in Looper and the upcoming Tom Cruise action movie Edge of Tomorrow. The filmmaker is also attached to direct Story of Your Life, for which Amy Adams is in negotiations to star.


Emily Blunt to star in ‘Sicario’?!

Lately, Canadian director Denis Villeneuve has been churning out features. Last fall, he released the crime-thriller Prisoners. Then February brought its follow-up, the mystery movie Enemy. Now, he’s already looking ahead to his next venture Sicario, and is eying Emily Blunt to headline it.
Variety reports Blunt has entered into negotiations about fronting Sicario, a thriller penned by Taylor Sheridan that follows a Tucson, Arizona-based police officer to the Mexican border on a quest to track down a dangerous drug lord. Joining the cop in this dangerous road trip are a pair of mercenaries. It’s a slight description, and one that leaves us with only a vague idea as to which role Blunt might play.
As there is no indication of the gender of the four characters, Blunt could be up for any of the above, though something tells me she might not be super convincing if the drug lord is meant to be a Mexican drug lord. Given that Variety is saying Blunt will star in the feature, it’s possible she’s up to play the lead cop part. Let’s hope so. It’d be a real downer to find out she’s some sidekick girlfriend/love interest. She’s done that enough. Give her a gun, and let her loose on the hero role.

James Corden On “Into The Woods”

Recent Tony Award-winning stage and screen star James Corden opens up about his lead role in the forthcoming big screen edition of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s beloved fairy tale-themed musical Into The Woods, co-starring Meryl Streep and Johnny Depp, as part of a new interview.
Addressing the recent UK shoot of the Rob Marshall-directed film, Corden relates, “I mean, just the best filming experience of my life – definitely.” Corden continued, “It’s directed by Rob Marshall – he directed Chicago and the last Pirates of the Caribbean film. I just loved it so much.”
Commenting on co-star Meryl Streep and the various scenes they are paired up in, Corden shares, “Almost all of my scenes are with Meryl, really – me and Emily [Blunt]; Emily plays the Baker’s Wife. We’re sort of the characters at the center of this film who go on a journey into these woods.” “I mean, yeah, just being in a room with her – she’s so aware of how you feel! She knows that she’s Meryl Streep and you’re you, so she does everything to just put you at ease – and, she takes the work incredibly seriously and doesn’t take herself seriously one bit, which makes for a lovely work atmosphere. It’s amazing,” Corden candidly reveals of the onscreen collaboration with Streep, who plays The Witch in the film.
Furthermore, Corden says, “Everyone sings in Into The Woods – we all sing. But, it’s not sort of sung throughout like Les Miserables – there are scenes and songs.”
