2010 Most Anticipated Films: ‘The Wolfman’ & ‘The Adjustment Bureau’

The Wolfman & The Adjustment Bureau are listed one of the ‘2010 Most Anticipated Films‘.

The Wolfman
Release Date: February 12

The Who: Directed by Joe Johnston; Written by Andrew Kevin Walker; Starring Benecio del Toro, Emily Blunt, and Anthony Hopkins

The Pitch: Another re-imagining of a classic tale, I think del Toro has the creepy charisma to bring a character like this to life. It’s a perversion of man, a look into the dark soul of someone forced to be violent, and it promises to have an intense amount of gnashing teeth. Plus, can you really go wrong with Rick Baker involved?

The Adjustment Bureau
Release Date: TBA

The Who: Directed by George Nolfi; Based on the short story by Phillip K. Dick; Starring Matt Damon and Emily Blunt
The Pitch: Phillip K. Dick’s short story about a man in a changing reality is brilliant and includes some very cool imagery that would translate well to film. I have no idea if it’s been translated with this adaptation, but George Nolfi (in his first stint as director) is a great writer, and Matt Damon is one of the best working actors today. Pair him with Emily Blunt, toss in Terence Stamp and Anthony Mackie with a heavy dose of science fiction, and I have no idea why you wouldn’t get excited.

Emily Blunt fashion winners at Critics’ Choice Movie Awards in Hollywood

Adam Lambert and Emily Blunt showed up all gussied up for the 15th annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards at the Hollywood Palladium tonight. So did a slew of other celebrities.

Although this was a night to celebrate films, put up by the Broadcast Film Critics Association, it was also a night for show business fashionistas to dress to the nines without being concerned that the entire world would criticize their every clothing choice from head to toe (think the Oscars or the Golden Globes).

In this more low-key event, done up attendees out to take in this fine event seemed to have fun picking out their wardrobes without worrying about being put down by fashion critics. The results are outstanding. [Read more…]

 

Emily Blunt Spreads the Word on The Young Victoria, One Theater at a Time

The critics and media have widely praised Emily Blunt’s performance as The Young Victoria’s turn-of-the-century monarch: This weekend she’s up for Best Actress at the Critics’ Choice Awards and the Golden Globes. Now all she has to do is get people who haven’t had free press screenings to see the damn thing, which is no small task for an actress in a small period piece released during the season full of studio-backed “event” movies. So the job has fallen to Blunt to personally win over audiences: She spent Thursday night at the Grove theater in L.A., participating in a post-screening Q&A. “This is the first time I have been directly opposite people who have paid money to see it rather than review it,” she explained to the non-industry crowd before joking, “Someone’s suddenly like, ‘Boo!’” [Read more…]

Emily Blunt Listed As ‘Metro Mix’s ’15 Breakout Actors of 2000s’

Emily Blunt is listed one of Metro Mix’s ’15 Breakout Actors of 2000s’.

One of the great pleasures of the movies is discovering an exciting new actor. Those performers that thrill and impress with their talent, looks, relatability and star power.

The following 15 actors made their marks in the past decade, making good on breakout roles with equally impressive bodies of work. They’re the actors we’re most excited to follow into the next decade, when we know they’ll be joined by a whole new crop of breakout stars.

Anyone who saw Blunt’s seductive turn in the teen lesbian romance “My Summer of Love” knew this girl deserved to be a star. But not many people actually did see that little British indie, so it wasn’t until she socked over the role of Meryl Streep’s caustic cutthroat assistant in “The Devil Wears Prada” that audiences really caught on to her irresistible charms.

Blunt has since demonstrated her range as an uptight literary lover in “The Jane Austen Book Club,” a whip smart publicist in “The Great Buck Howard,” a well-intentioned screw-up in “Sunshine Cleaning” and a girl becoming a woman and the Queen of England simultaneously in “The Young Victoria.” Just try taking your eyes off her.

Emily Blunt to Answer Fan Questions On January 14

Emily Blunt, who was recently nominated for a Golden Globe for her performance in The Young Victoria, is going to have a little face time with a few moviegoers in Los Angeles tonight. She will be having a Q&A session after the 7:15 screening of her film, The Young Victoria, at the Grove in Los Angeles on Thursday, January 14. She will, presumably, be answering questions about her role in the film, her experience filming, or anything else the audience decides to throw her way. If you are in the greater Los Angeles area, you can purchase tickets on the Grove website for the screening.

In case you’re interested in going to the screening, here’s a bit more about the film….

Directed by: Jean-Marc Vallée

Starring: Emily Blunt, Rupert Friend, Paul Bettany, Miranda Richardson, Jim Broadbent, Thomas Kretschmann, and Mark Strong.

Life.com: 11 Bright Stars of Awards Season

Their heroes and villains were all over the map: a tortured Harlem teen, a silver-tongued Nazi, a sexy frequent flier, a danger-junkie soldier on Iraq’s front lines. Now the actors who brought these characters to the big screen all have one thing in common: an Oscar dream. In this exclusive LIFE portrait gallery, photographer Jeff Vespa captures moments with 11 actors enjoying awards-season buzz — including our stunning cover star, Up in the Air’s Vera Farmiga, who’ll be hoping to hear her name called as a Best Supporting Actress nominee come Feb. 2.

Who ever thinks of England’s 19th-century monarch as a PYT? It’s hard to see her otherwise after watching Blunt’s take on the queen-to-be, putting the zap on royal-court plotters and casting saucy sideward glances at future hubby Prince Albert. Blunt, who made a big splash playing the snarky assistant to Meryl Streep’s boss from hell in The Devil Wears Prada, handily conquers leading-lady territory here.

Emily Blunt Visits The Grove

Emily Blunt. Yes, her mere name makes us smile, and her roles are good ones, too.

We’ll cite the actor’s fabulous if frantic gal Friday in “The Devil Wears Prada,” and her grittier turn in “Sunshine Cleaning” (props to Amy Adams in that flick, too). Now the Brit star is in “The Young Victoria,” and she’s stopping by The Grove on Thursday, January 14th to talk about playing the regal figure and the making of the film.

Tickets. We’ll say it, because we always harp, but tickets are going, going. The show is at 7:15PM at the Pacific Theatres at The Grove.

You were wanting to see this movie anyway, fans of historical non-fiction and royalty buffs and Bluntians. Why not see it with the star?
