Last fall, Emily Blunt settled in on the New York City set of “The Adjustment Bureau” but confessed there was something unsettling about the impending production: She was set to play a ballerina opposite Matt Damon, yet, as she told us at the time, had “never bloody danced before.”

The duo play star-crossed lovers whose gaga-at-first-sight encounter becomes a source of what-coulda-been frustration as they’re kept apart by inexplicable, string-pulling forces. With the film’s echoes of “The Matrix,” “The Truman Show” and “Dark City,” it’s better to know little about the plot particulars. You won’t have to wait too long to check it out for yourself.

“Adjustment Bureau” hits theaters July 30, and as part of MTV News’ Summer Movie Preview, we’re bringing you another chat with the always delightful Blunt. Safely back in Los Angeles after her ballet experimentation, the 27-year-old British actress gave us a call to talk about her harrowing dance preparation, the sources of Damon’s actorly inspiration and the importance of munching doughnuts in the middle of the night.

MTV: We have to start with the dancing. You were worried last time we talked. How’d it go? Were there tears?
Emily Blunt: The tears did start to flow. I did cry a lot in pain. It was actually an extraordinary experience, because I don’t think I’ve ever had to do something that frightened me to that degree, day in and day out.

Marvel can’t get enough of Emily Blunt. After a scheduling conflict kept the 27-year-old actress from trying on Black Widow’s skin-tight garb in “Iron Man 2,” the Marvel folks approached her again with an offer to star as leading lady Peggy Carter in “The First Avenger: Captain America.”

Blunt reportedly passed on the chance to star alongside Chris Evans in that film, and now she exclusively tells MTV News why.

“I’m a big supporter of [director] Joe Johnston and I think that ‘Captain America’ is going to be really fun and I gather that the story is really interesting,” she said. “It just wasn’t what I wanted to do next, to be honest.” Read more…

The weather is finally getting warmer and you know what that means—weddings!

We brought you the deets on Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher‘s summer soiree, and now we’ve got the goods on Emily Blunt and John Krasinski‘s big bash.

And it’s just around the corner.

The pair announced their engagement in August and will be heading down the aisle in “about a month,” a source tells E! News.

“She is planning the wedding right now and is down to the last-minute details,” the source says. “They picked up their wedding bands yesterday.”

The fashion-forward Devil Wears Prada star has tried on her fair share of bridal gowns, our snitch says.

“She looked at Monique Lhuillier and Vera Wang. She is definitely considering Monique Lhuillier.”

As for the event itself, it’s looking to be “a big wedding…probably in London or Los Angeles.”

Reps for the cutie couple did not immediately return calls seeking comment.

Blunt, 27, and Krasinski, 30, have been dating since November 2008.
