Emily Blunt hates scary movies, slasher flicks and any
thing up on the big screen that has anything to do with the needless, heedless shedding of blood. But, as the British actress explained to MTV News, she signed up to star with Benicio Del Toro in the gothic horror film “The Wolfman” because along with the frights came amazing makeup effects from the best in the biz, a dark, character-driven story, and a particularly complex relationship with her onscreen co-star.
Now that the “Wolfman” trailer has been released, we can begin to see exactly what had Blunt so excited to take on the role. Read more…
Emily Blunt has revealed that she has enrolled in intense dance lessons in preparation for her latest film.
The Young Victoria actress, who plays a ballerina in new film The Adjustment Bureau alongside Matt Damon, said that the role will be a new challenge for her.
Blunt told the Herald Sun: “I’m going to dance boot camp. I’ll never be at the same standard as a professional, but hopefully I’ll be able to do a little bit. I didn’t do ballet when I was a child. I gave it up in some sort of bratty rage, claiming it hurt my feet.”
The movie is a sci-fi thriller which sees a congressman’s life transformed by Blunt’s dancer character. Filming is scheduled to start later this year.
Watch an exclusive trailer sneak preview of the long-awaited horror thriller ‘The Wolfman’ starring Benicio Del Toro, Anthony Hopkins, Emily Blunt and Hugo Weaving.
This is the first official footage released from the Joe Johnston directed film. Tomorrow Access Hollywood will air additional footage from the trailer. You can also view the official movie trailer online Thursday. Until then check out the 10 sec. trailer sneak preview below. ‘The Wolfman’ hits theaters February 12th, 2010.
Benicio Del Toro stars a haunted nobleman lured back to his family estate after his brother vanishes. Reunited with his estranged father, Talbot sets out to find his brother…and discovers a horrifying destiny for himself.
IN THE early 1840s, the UK’s celebrity magazine was the satirical Punch. And their Lindsay Lohan was a naive but feisty woman named Alexandrina Victoria.
“She was a total party animal; rebellious, vivacious, full of joie de vivre,” says Emily Blunt, chatting enthusiastically about her latest role as Queen Victoria in The Young Victoria. “She never stopped – riding horses all day, dancing until four o’clock in the morning. People today only think of her as the weeping widow, but she had a real zest for life.”
While the Victorian era is known for laced-up social attitudes, for rules and etiquette as uptight as a whale-bone corset, its tabloid columnists could be just as lethal as any Perez Hilton in their attacks on the monarch. Read more…
Emily Blunt is listed number #4 for LoveFilm.com’s Top 20 Actresses Under 30.
Age: 26 2008 ranking: 5 Credits: Young Victoria, Sunshine Cleaning, The Devil Wears Prada, The Jane Austen Book Club, My Summer Of Love, Charlie Wilson’s War, Dan In Real Life.
Blunt had the misfortune to lose out on Iron Man 2 this year because she was already committed to Gulliver’s Travels (Scarlett Johansson was Jon Favreau’s second choice). She accrued respect but not much excitement as The Young Victoria. But she wiped the floor with Amy Adams in Sunshine Cleaning, and should be fun flirting with Bill Nighy in the remake Wild Target. The Wolf Man is also in the can, and then there’s Philip K Dick’s The Adjustment Bureau to look forward to (with Matt Damon). Hot!
Universal Pictures is once again pushing back the release date of its big-budget monster movie “The Wolf Man,” now to Feb. 12, some three months after the studio last planned to debut the remake directed by Joe Johnston and staring Benicio Del Toro, Emily Blunt and Anthony Hopkins.
This is the fourth release date for the picture, which has had a rocky history with extensive re-shoots earlier this year and a switch of directors early on in the project when Mark Romanek left over budgetary issues.
The first release date for the picture, which cost about $112 million, was Feb. 9, 2009. Universal then pushed it back to April 3, and then again to Nov. 6. Read more…
