Hollywood couple EMILY BLUNT and JOHN KRASINSKI are set to work together for the first time in Japanese filmmaker HAYAO MIYAZAKI’s final movie.
The married stars, who are expecting their first child together next year (14), will team up for animated movie The Wind Rises.
The historical fantasy film was a hit when it was released in Japan earlier this year (13), and now director/writer Miyazaki is bringing the movie to English-speaking audiences.
Krasinski will voice lead character Jiro Horikoshi, who designed Japan’s World War II fighter planes, with Blunt as his love interest.
Other celebrities adding their voices to the film are Elijah Wood and Stanley Tucci, who is married to Blunt’s sister, Felicity.
Miyazaki announced The Wind Rises would be his last movie shortly after its original release over the summer (13).
Check out the trailer and screen captures of Emily Blunt new upcoming film “Edge of Tomorrow”:
The epic action of “Edge of Tomorrow” unfolds in a near future in which an alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, unbeatable by any military unit in the world.
Lt. Col. Bill Cage (Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously dropped into what amounts to a suicide mission. Killed within minutes, Cage now finds himself inexplicably thrown into a time loop—forcing him to live out the same brutal combat over and over, fighting and dying again…and again.
But with each battle, Cage becomes able to engage the adversaries with increasing skill, alongside Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski (Blunt). And, as Cage and Rita take the fight to the aliens, each repeated encounter gets them one step closer to defeating the enemy.
