emily blunt ghost movie

You know, living in a tropical island, I've never one been witness to snow. Even the one time I traveled out of the country, to New Jersey to visit my uncle and his family. I remember it being colder than anything I've ever experienced before, or since, but I never actually seen snow or played in the snow. This is both a blessing and a curse, cause I don't think I'd be able to deal with how cold it can get in some places in the U.S during the summer. But it sucks in that I have to deal with the hot weather here, which can get unbearable, all the time. There should be a bit of a happy medium, where it's just the perfect temperature, neither too hot nor too cold. Anyway, this brings us to the movie that I, quite frankly, didn't know what to make of. Is it a bad movie? I don't really think I would go that far, but it's not a movie that I would call good either. It's also not average, I think it falls just slightly short of that. The film is fairly simple, this woman uses the ride share board to, duh, get a ride from this guy back home to Delaware. They 'relationship' starts out contentiously as the girl and the guy, never referred to by name, are constantly arguing for one reason or another. The guy doesn't do himself any favors when he knows things about the girl that he should have no real way of knowing unless he was pulling off some stalker-ish behavior. After stopping off at a gas station, the guy decides to take a shortcut. The girl is initially mistrustful of him, because of the behavior he has already showed. Things get even worse when their car is driven off the road and they're stranded in the middle of a very snowy road. This is when the strange(r) things start happening. First of all, however, it is revealed that the guy was actually spying on the girl's text messaging during class, which is how he knew she needed a ride, and he quickly put up a notice on the board offering a ride. He did this because it was the only way he felt he could talk to her. Once again, this helps create mistrust between the girl and the guy, as she believes he's some kind of psycho. This doesn't last long, of course, once the shit starts to hit the fan. This is where the problems immediately start, the horror in this movie is practically nonexistent and, quite frankly, nonsensical when you get right down to it. Turns out that several accidents have happened during this stretch of road. It's also revealed that there was this cop who murdered several people in this road and he threw their bodies down a ditch and/or in a cabin or something. The problem with this is the fact that there's literally no explanation as to why the ghost cop is now haunting this road, other than the fact that I, believe, he said during his death, several decades earlier, that they'll never be rid of him. That's literally all there is to explain why he's not trying to fuck over our leads. And then there's the priests that the girl, inexplicably, sees walking in the woods looking like fucking vampires or something. I don't get why these assholes appeared in this movie, I guess it was to give the movie something of a menace, since the ghost cop, despite being a serial killer, doesn't really give off the vibe of being scary or anything of the sort. There's more inexplicable scenes such as when the guy hits the ghost cop, why does he and the girl then teleport into the car and the ghost cop disappears as if nothing had ever happened. An event that neither of them actually brings up after the fact. They just go on with their lives as if they hadn't just fucking teleported to the inside of the car. I liked the film's concept in that the leads have to deal with not only surviving the elements, but also surviving supernatural beings, as it were. It's not that it was a super great concept, but it could have lead to a reasonably entertaining horror movie. That is not what we got here, sadly. The acting is solid, Emily Blunt and Ashton Holmes were good here and their characters' arc, while a bit forced at times, was decent enough. I just wish the rest of the movie had a better narrative and a better reason for why shit is happening other than, quite literally, just because. I don't think this movie had the potential to be a truly great horror movie, but it had more going for it than a lot of horror movies during this era. It's just a shame that the movie doesn't really attempt to make a lick of sense when it comes to its horror. They do things just because it helps them move the story they want to tell forward, whether it was logical or not. This is ok, at best. It's certainly watchable if you've got nothing better to do for 90 minutes, but there's no real reason you should go out of your way to watch this.

[img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/icons/icon13.gif[/img] The main reason I watched Wind Chill was the fact it starred Emily Blunt. I tend to keep a fairly open mind when it comes to experiencing ridiculous horror movies that just happen to have talented actresses in them because sometimes they surprise me and turn out to be pretty good. Past examples include Christina Ricci in The Gathering and Hilary Swank in The Reaping. Despite a marvellous set up in the first twenty minutes or so the rest of the film unfortunately doesn't live up to it, I think it could have been better as a short film because as a whole it doesn't have a lot of inventive material. I essentialy found both of those movies more interesting and less baggy than Wind Chill. The film has a reasonable idea for a throwaway claustrophobic thriller but as it unfolds it annoyingly succumbs to the cliche's and groan inducing sentimentality. Not at one point did I jump and neither was I scared watching it in the slightest. It runs out of steam and gets repetitive pretty quickly and although Emily Blunt and Ashton Holmes do the best with the material they are given they alone cannot save it from it's complete lack of shivering chills. Consequently the film just loses its way, drags itself along and quite simply ended up boring me almost in it's entirety.

quite stylish but not a well made horror film. the film is just so slow and the suspense is none existence. emily blunt is ultimately wasted

Share All sharing options for: A Quiet Place is a terrific horror film — and a tender movie about parenting

Emily Blunt in A Quiet Place

Of all the movie genres, horror is the most immersive — it only works if it can bypass your brain and get your body into the act. That means tapping into as many of your senses as possible. You need to forget you’re watching a movie and think you’re in the movie.

By that measure, A Quiet Place is the best kind of horror movie. It toys with how we hear the world around us, in ways that are startling and creative and tense.

But it also does what many of the best horror films do: It uses the elements of horror to heighten a common human experience, making us think about everyday life in a new way. (Think of what Rosemary’s Baby did for pregnancy, what Carrie did for puberty, and what Get Out did for racism.)

In A Quiet Place, that common human experience is parenthood — wanting to protect your children, fearing losing them, and trying to raise them in a hostile world. In this case, it’s a post-apocalyptic world inhabited by blind, apparently extraterrestrial creatures that are triggered into a murderous rage by any sound. (Which actually may not sound too out-there to some new parents.)

But people are people, even when they’re being hunted by giant ear monsters — and A Quiet Place taps into that dread, terror, and love. The result is frightening, and it feels wholly original.

A Quiet Place uses our sense of hearing to immerse us in a frightening, visceral story

Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe in A Quiet Place

The best thing A Quiet Place does is foreground our sense of hearing. It does this in a few ways: in the story, in the characters themselves, and in the filmmaking.

The story — from a screenplay co-written by Bryan Woods, Scott Beck, and John Krasinski, who also directs and stars — is post-apocalyptic, set in the very near future, around 2020. We pick up 89 days into an event that seems to have wiped out most of Earth’s population. One family of survivors is living in a farmhouse in New England: a father ( John Krasinski ), a mother ( Emily Blunt ), two young sons ( Noah Jupe and Cade Woodward ), and a daughter ( Millicent Simmonds ), who is deaf. (Simmonds, who starred as a deaf girl in Todd Haynes’s Wonderstruck last year, is deaf in real life.) They scavenge through abandoned grocery stores for medications and food and, to keep as silent as possible, walk barefoot through the woods whenever they travel.

John Krasinski and Noah Jupe in A Quiet Place

The story requires them to stay quiet, because virtually any sound draws huge, vicious creatures out of the woods that snatch the offender. The family is at an advantage, having had to learn sign language anyhow to communicate with their daughter, and that might be why they’ve managed to elude the monsters thus far.

But tragedy strikes on the way home from the grocery store one day — a heart-wrenching and terrifying tragedy that leaves its scars on everyone in the family. And then the movie jumps ahead by a year, when there’s a new baby on the way.

A baby! Imagine trying to silence an infant in this world where any sound leads to instant death. The solution involves a tiny oxygen tank and mask, a soundproofed basement, and a coffin-like crib that muffles any noise.

That’s the kind of detail that animates A Quiet Place , in which all sorts of daily tasks are complicated by the imperative to stay absolutely silent: cooking, doing laundry, learning history and math, walking around a creaky old farmhouse. The movie draws us into that silent world very quickly, and every noise and potential noise rapidly becomes fraught with peril.

That’s exacerbated by the extra danger facing the daughter, who can’t tell if a noise near her is dangerous. Her father works tirelessly to create a hearing aid for her, not just so she can hear but because it could literally save her life. But she’s frustrated with the things her younger brother gets to do with her father, and increasingly angered by the future she can see for herself.

Emily Blunt and Millicent Simmonds in A Quiet Place

The story unwinds bit by bit, as a number of factors collide on one fateful day that leaves the whole family in peril. Sure, it feels a bit contrived at times. (Most horror films do.) But as the dominoes start to fall, one by one, there’s a cathartic thrill to seeing how carefully they were arranged in the first place. Small elements that surfaced earlier in the film come back, like some kind of scavenger hunt, putting family members in danger and extracting them from it.

We become part of that story too, thanks to sound design that’s conceived to play on the audience’s sense of hearing. It’s one of the quietest horror films I’ve ever seen, and at my screening, the audience seemed loath to breathe; munching popcorn was a glare-worthy offense. The people onscreen are being silent, and we feel like we should be too.

But even silence comes in different varieties. There’s some texture to silence for those of us who can hear; for the daughter in A Quiet Place , though, the silence that blankets her life is all-consuming, the silence of a vacuum. The movie toggles from one to the other at times, giving us a sense of how she hears her world.

All this silence makes the noises more startling, both to the characters and to us. And so we are immersed in their world, with visceral results.

A Quiet Place is also a drama about parents’ love for their children

And yet A Quiet Place isn’t just a jumpy thriller. It’s also the story of parents trying to protect their children from a hostile world, and from danger that could literally destroy them if they make one wrong move. (That it happens against the idyllic backdrop of a New England autumn makes the moments of danger and terror even more stark.)

Noah Jupe in A Quiet Place

A Quiet Place taps into the fears any parent grapples with as they raise their child, even those not living in a post-apocalyptic world: Will they be safe? Will they learn the lessons they need to survive? Will they know that you love them? And even if you do everything right, will they still be put in harm’s way?

Smartly, A Quiet Place takes on these questions at several stages in a child’s development — from birth to early teen years — and situates them in this post-apocalyptic landscape. What becomes clear is that no matter how the world changes, parents will stay the same.

That’s sad, but it’s hopeful too. A Quiet Place doesn’t end with everything better — in some ways, it’s much worse. But even after an apocalypse, the world goes on. A loving family is a beacon of possibility. And though no parent ever makes all the right decisions, if they do their job, their children will be able to lead the way forward.

A Quiet Place opens in theaters on April 6, 2018.

John Krasinski’s A Quiet Place Uses Its Gimmick to Terrifying Effect

Portrait of David Edelstein

Horror filmmakers understand that, as the strippers in Gypsy put it, they gotta get a gimmick if they wanna get ahead, and the gimmick in A Quiet Place is thunderously effective: Don’t make a sound or you’re dead meat. Apparently — the movie has little in the way of exposition — humanity has been virtually wiped out by creatures with ginormous yucky unfurling ears but no other senses of note. That means, in theory, Marcel Marceau could tiptoe by them and they wouldn’t smell his greasepaint, but if his stomach were to growl he’d be mime tartare.

In A Quiet Place, what’s left of the world is John Krasinski (who also co-wrote and directed); his real-life wife, Emily Blunt, as his fictional wife; and three kids … oops, make that two, played by Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe. Hell of a grim start. Family members walk barefoot to do errands in the deserted town (they noticeably pass up the chips in the market), communicate in sign language, and are careful when they play Monopoly that they don’t drop any pieces on the floor.

The movie suffers from having no obvious endgame, and it’s not as fun as the recent, less tony shut-the-hell-up horror movie Don’t Breathe . But it’s aggressively scary. The characters have to be so vewwy quiet that when the floor creaks or someone bumps into a table, the soundtrack goes BANG!!!! and the whole audience jumps. A nail sticking out of the floor makes your stomach plummet: You can instantly imagine the foot coming down on it and the writhing attempt not to scream . Increasing the dread is that Blunt is pregnant — happily so, actually — despite the fact that infants aren’t exactly easy to teach sign language to.

Krasinski gets terrific performances from everyone: It’s a convincing family. Which is nice, in a way, despite the ghastliness of the situation. Absent social media, the relationships — even when fraught — have an archetypal purity. It might be a useful Sabbath bonding exercise to pretend there are monsters lying in wait.

John Krasinski’s Secret to Making a Movie with Emily Blunt: “She’s the Boss”

emily blunt ghost movie

By Paul Chi

John Krasinski Noah Jupe Millicent Simmonds and Emily Blunt at the A Quiet Place New York Premiere.

John Krasinski was experiencing a roller coaster of emotions. While making introductions just minutes before screening his new horror movie— A Quiet Place, which Krasinski directed, co-wrote, and stars in—the actor was beaming with pride. Before long, he was getting emotional as he introduced his co-stars at New York City’s AMC Lincoln Square theater: deaf actress Millicent Simmonds, Noah Jupe, and Emily Blunt, who is also Krasinski’s wife.

“This is actually happening! Perfect, I just blacked out. I have no idea what I’m about to say,” Krasinski joked to a packed crowd that included Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, Justin Theroux, Stanley Tucci, and Rob Marshall, who just directed Blunt in Mary Poppins Returns.

“I can’t tell you how much this movie means to me. I love that people are saying it’s scary. But to me, it is all about family and the metaphor for what it takes to be a parent, and the extremes that you would go through to protect your kids,” he said—before adding that he knew his words might sound “insane” when juxtaposed against the still being projected onto the big screen, which showed Blunt looking distressed while sitting in a bathtub.

“You laugh now, but afterwards you’re going to be, ‘I get it man!’” Krasinski continued. “So I’m just preparing you.”

A Quiet Place —in theaters April 6—focuses on a couple (Krasinski and Blunt) and their young children (Simmonds and Jupe) trying to survive in post-apocalyptic world filled with mysterious creatures who hunt by sound; the slightest noise leads the monsters to violently attack. The film uses sign language—the daughter is deaf—and just about 90 lines of spoken dialogue, most of which is whispered, adding an extra layer of terror to an already suspenseful premise. Critics are unanimously praising Krasinski for crafting a smart, riveting, genre-bending tale in his third outing as a feature director, following the 2016 indie comedy The Hollars and the 2009 drama Brief Interviews With Hideous Men. A Quiet Place is not only Krasinski’s first studio picture—it’s also his first movie in which he co-stars with Blunt.

“The biggest benefit is the support system,” he told Vanity Fair on the red carpet about the advantages of working with his spouse. “I was emotional every day, and she would stay for the scene she wasn’t in. She would have incredible ideas and incredible notes on shooting script and on color performances. She’s just the most supportive person to have around.”

Blunt didn’t initially intend to appear in the film. Though she loved the story, she was slightly hesitant to make a movie with her husband of eight years.

“Before we started, it was terrifying. You don’t know what will happen, and if your two processes are going to work together,” said Blunt at the premiere. “Some people were like, ‘You’re going to be divorced by the end of it.’ But we quickly learned we work really well together. We discovered new sides to each other that go beyond us being a married couple. We never really saw each other in a professional day-to-day basis. It’s a totally different experience to share work and go home together. We were really in the thick of it together, and it’s brought us closer. He’s an incredible director—very collaborative, spontaneous, and assured.”

Before the film’s 36-day shoot last fall, Krasinski said he discussed every shot with Blunt over long dinner conversations. To maintain a balanced and respectful relationship on set, the two promised to be truthful with each other about their work styles.

“The key to [our collaboration], I said was, ‘Let’s be as honest with the movie as we are in our marriage, and let’s just talk about everything,’” Krasinski explained. “‘If there’s any problems you have or things you want to change, let’s talk about it now so we don’t do it on set.’ So we just went through all the intensity, walked through what it would be like, what she wanted to do and what I wanted her to do. She’s as good as it gets.”

Krasinski didn’t have to offer any notes to Blunt during the film’s most suspenseful moment, when Blunt’s character is sitting in a bathtub moments from giving birth. She must stay silent despite the excruciating pains of labor, or she’ll be killed by the monster that appears in the hallway just outside the bathroom.

“She’s the only one out of the two of us that’s exactly been through it. So my thing was let her do it,” he said with a smile. “No direction needed!”

And even now that he’s had experience being in charge, Krasinski isn’t planning to keep calling the shots.

“She’s always the boss, and I knew it,” he said. “In the manual, it says she’s the boss. So luckily, she let me direct, and then we came home—and then she went back to being the boss.”

John krasinski, emily blunt on political undertones of horror movie ‘a quiet place’.

"The best compliment you can get on any movie is that it starts a conversation," John Krasinski says of the political message behind his and Emily Blunt's horror film 'A Quiet Place.'

When John Krasinski wrote the script for  A Quiet Place , he wanted to draw a comparison between the horror film’s bloodthirsty monsters and the fears associated with modern parenthood.

“This is a movie about family,” Krasinski — who plays Lee, a father-of-four desperate to keep his kids out of harm’s way — told The Hollywood Reporter at the movie’s recent New York City premiere. “It’s a metaphor about what family is and the extremes you go to as a parent to protect your kids.”

Indeed, A Quiet Place shows Krasinski’s character doing everything in his power to protect his wife, Evelyn — played by real-life spouse, Emily Blunt — and their children. Their lives are dependent on their ability to remain completely silent, as the slightest noise could summon deadly, spider-like creatures who hunt their prey with an acute attraction to sound.  

A handful of critics, including THR ‘s  John DeFore , have likened A Quiet Place ‘s plague of apocalypse-creating beasts to America’s political unrest in 2018. That wasn’t his intention, but Krasinski — who also directed the film, which he calls “a love letter” to his and Blunt’s two young daughters — doesn’t disagree with its political parallel.  

“That’s not what I was going for, but the best compliment you can get on any movie is that it starts a conversation,” Krasinski said. “The fact that people are leaving and talking about anything is really fun — but certainly about deep stuff like that, is awesome.”

Blunt, who also went into the project hoping to tell a story about being a parent in today’s “dangerous, fragile world,” told THR that she is equally pleased with the political commentary surrounding the Paramount Pictures feature.  

“What happened is that people were [asking], ‘Do you think this movie is about being attacked for using your voice?’ And that’s not what we were thinking going into it,” the Golden Globe winner explained, “but it’s thrilling that a horror film is creating those kinds of conversations.”

She continued, “I can see it now. The parenthood metaphor was the one that John was drawn to, but I love the conversations [regarding politics]. I see that it’s a very moving experience watching the film.”

Aside from making a statement, whether it be about family or current events, Krasinski  said another rewarding part of working on  A Quiet Place was watching Blunt’s “powerful” performance on set. Blunt recently revealed that she jumped at the role after reading his script .

“I’ve always been the biggest fan of hers personally and professionally. But when you’re actually in the room when she does what she does, it’s mind-blowing,” Krasinski raved of Blunt, whom he married in 2010. “I always love everything she does onscreen.”

Adding, “But then you see how she does it in the room, how powerful and professional she is. As soon as they call ‘Cut!’ she’s like, ‘Hey, by the way, what are we having for lunch?’ And you’re like, ‘How is this possible? How are you able to do this in and out?!'”

A Quiet Place hits theaters April 6.

Quantcast

John Krasinski and Emily Blunt Made a Horror Movie With No Dialogue or Noise And, Well, I'm Screaming For Them

"Silence is survival."

Green, Blond, Sitting, Photography, Smile, Art,

A Quiet Place stars Krasinski, Blunt, and child stars Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe as a family of four, but that's about all there is to know (so far). According to the film's IMDb page , the plot and names of the characters are totally under wraps. But one thing we do know from the trailer: there's absolutely no dialogue, because "silence is survival." (OK, but the Spice Girls are also great?)

Based on the very very quiet teaser, it appears the family lives in complete silence on an isolated farm to avoid being hunted by some unknown monster. They don't use shoes, avoid creaky floorboards, and even communicate using sign language — all to avoid giving themselves away. If they make noise, they're pretty much screwed. And so, of course, they make some noise on accident. Oops!

The film marks the first time Blunt and Krasinski had starred in a movie together. (Sure, the two both acted in The Muppets back in 2011 but didn't share any scenes, so it doesn't count as "starring" together thxvm.) And based on this 2016 interview with E! , Krasinski — who co-wrote the Quiet Place screenplay — was looking for an excuse to collab with his wife of seven years.

"I would love to direct Emily," he said. "[But] I'd rather act with Emily than direct. I don't know if I need that responsibility. She's so good and I'd be so scared to screw it up, but [I'd be] happy to be in scenes with her. That would be really fun. We're always up for doing something. It's just got to be the right thing...Give us a good one! I would love it!"

The concept itself is pretty novel, but I'm left with several thoughts: Why is Millicent wearing a hearing aid? How do they even breathe without making noise? What the hell is happening to Emily in that bathtub? Where are you hiking, John? Also, how long did it take you to grow that beard? These are all important questions, people!!

But we''ll just have to wait until A Quiet Place premieres on Apr. 6, 2018 for the answers.

Emily blunt’s 15 best movies & tv shows, ranked.

Emily Blunt's incredible career has spanned from low-budget comedy movies to adrenaline-fueled blockbusters, giving her some great movies and shows.

  • Emily Blunt shines in A Quiet Place, delivering a standout performance in this compelling and original horror movie.
  • Blunt's role in Sicario solidifies her place as an emotionally devastating action star in this murky and riveting thriller.
  • While The Devil Wears Prada is known for Meryl Streep, Blunt crafts a memorable character that steals scenes and holds her own among top-notch actors.

Emily Blunt 's best movies and TV shows span an array of genres that make ranking her various projects an example of her incredible talents. Over the course of her memorable career, she can truly claim to have done it all, whether that's comedy, drama, sci-fi, or something else. Blunt adapts to each of her roles with ease and routinely makes the most of her screen time to leave audiences with a good impression. Even in otherwise mediocre movies, she has the talent to single-handedly elevate the project. She can also take the smallest of parts and add depth to her characterization.

With a filmography that spans several decades and increasingly prominent roles, Pain Hustlers star Emily Blunt continues to see her gain attention for the powerful performances she delivers, even as it might seem like she is also flying under the radar to some degree. Not every movie or TV show she has been involved in has been a critical hit or well-received by general audiences, but that does not change the fact that Emily Blunt has delivered over a dozen truly memorable works. Her best movies and shows ranging from her breakthrough role in 2004 right up to the present exemplify that.

15 Your Sister's Sister (2011)

None of the characters in Your Sister's Sister make relatable decisions, but that doesn't stop the movie from producing a few big laughs. The main positive of Your Sister's Sister is a boldly unconventional script, as it chooses to center so much of its emotional heft around a storyline involving a condom with holes poked in it. Still, the movie prods and probes at its three stars – Emily Blunt, Mark Duplass, and Rosemarie DeWitt – in just the right way to throw up some memorable one-liners. Your Sister's Sister definitely works better as a comedy than as a drama, even if it tries to aim for both.

14 The Adjustment Bureau (2011)

The Adjustment Bureau promises a lot, but ultimately fails to deliver on its high-concept premise. Matt Damon finds out that a secret organization controls everyone's destiny, making sure that people's lives go according to their predetermined plans. Emily Blunt represents an obstacle to these carefully laid plans, and the movie becomes a romance about fighting for true love. Had it panned out differently, perhaps the movie could have begun to unbox the ramifications and lore behind the bureau. It still makes for a decent romantic thriller, but the sci-fi elements remain fuzzy. Ultimately, there are too many unanswered questions for the plot to become deeply engrossing.

13 Sunshine Cleaning (2008)

Emily Blunt and Amy Adams play sisters who start a business cleaning up crime scenes in Sunshine Cleaning . The black comedy manages to keep the movie ticking along with admirable levity, considering the abundance of human remains. The plot suffers a little from predictability, especially when it comes to the rollercoaster of a relationship between the sisters, but there's a genuine heart that overrides any fears of formulaic storytelling. Blunt and Adams share great comedic chemistry, even if Blunt's American accent does falter at times. The pair do what they can with a script that doesn't always strike a balance between comedy and drama.

12 The Girl On The Train (2016)

Based on the best-selling novel by Paula Hawkins, The Girl On The Train provided Emily Blunt with one of her most memorable roles. Unfortunately, Blunt's excellent performance struggles to lift the movie out of mediocrity. Weighed down by a ponderous script that suddenly swings into melodrama, the movie fails to condense the source material into a story anywhere near as compelling. The mystery that hums beneath the bulk of the novel is wrapped up all too quickly before The Girl On The Train 's ending , leaving the movie without enough suspense to carry the plot convincingly.

11 Mary Poppins Returns (2018)

Stepping into the shoes of one of Britain's most beloved characters is not an easy task, but Emily Blunt manages to do so in Mary Poppins Returns with panache. The movie somehow retains the 1964 original's earnest sentimentality and whimsy, even if the songs don't live up to the high standards. Mary Poppins Returns works because it was made with the same honest attitude as the original, or any other Disney film of the era. Blunt's humorous vanity and warmth keep the movie traveling at a canter, aided by a similarly compelling Ben Whishaw. It's just a shame that it lives in the shadow of a superior ancestor.

10 The Young Victoria (2009)

The Young Victoria chooses to follow Queen Victoria's life as she ascends to the throne and seeks to tighten her grip. The movie drips with a lavish production style, but the drama never truly takes off to any serious heights. Blunt stars as the monarch, learning not only to navigate the conflicting desires of her family but also trying to forge her own path. Her performance is the highlight of the movie, as she portrays Victoria's composed aggression with all the danger of a coiled viper. It could be seen as an excellent character piece, but so much of the tension remains agonizingly below the surface.

9 A Quiet Place Part II (2020)

The sequel to 2018's A Quiet Place doesn't offer quite the same thrill as the original, but it was a tough act to follow. Cillian Murphy makes a fine addition to the cast, years before he would go on to star alongside Emily Blunt in Oppenheimer . His character, Emmett, is a cynical survivor who lost his children to the aliens. The sequel does a good job of expanding the world around the characters and delving deeper into the precise nature of their extraterrestrial attackers. While Emily Blunt's place in the future of the Quiet Place franchise is undetermined, her return as Evelyn Abbott is once again tremendous.

8 Looper (2013)

Time travel thrillers are infamous for plot holes and paradoxes, but Rian Johnson's Looper stands up to scrutiny. One of the most impressive feats that the movie pulls off is to draw very little attention to the intricately detailed machinations. Instead, the characters drive the plot naturally. Some of the effects look a little shaky and there is a slight tendency to avoid the biggest internal conflicts that might arise from such a warped relationship to the self, but Looper 's brilliant ending assuages most of these issues. The movie focuses on the characters of Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, but Emily Blunt plays a pivotal role as a protective mother.

7 My Summer Of Love (2004)

It may not be one of Emily Blunt's best-known movies, but My Summer Of Love provided her breakthrough role in British cinema. Blunt plays a manipulative young woman who meets a girl in the English countryside and takes an unusual interest in her. The plot soon drifts into a heady swirl of religion, sex, and violence. Blunt displays flashes of callous narcissism that suggest she could play more villainous roles than she usually does, should she choose to. The small-budget movie works well with what it has, but it stops short of the emotional gut punch it threatens to throw.

6 Edge Of Tomorrow (2014)

From the outside, Edge Of Tomorrow looks like a rehash of Groundhog Day but with Tom Cruise running away from some explosions. The movie avoids such a dismissal, however, with a punchy script, gripping action, and two excellent performances from Cruise and Blunt. Despite the fact that Cruise can die and wake up again at the start of the day, the stakes remain high thanks to the unique designs of the alien combatants. The film's ending could be seen as somewhat anticlimactic given what came before, but a potential Edge Of Tomorrow sequel could rectify this and bring Blunt back to one of her most iconic roles.

5 Sicario (2015)

Sicario is among Emily Blunt's favorite movie roles , and it's easy to see why. Blunt's character Kate Macer acts as a sort of conduit for the audience, being dragged deeper into a conflict as she begins to understand the chaos surrounding her. The movie solidified Blunt's place as an emotionally devastating action star. Sicario is a nefariously murky thriller that explodes into propulsive action sequences. There are countless movies about American operatives imposing their will on foreign soil, but Blunt offers Sicario enough emotional weight to subvert this common trope. The result is an evasive and riveting plot that strays far from convention.

4 The Devil Wears Prada (2006)

Although My Summer Of Love introduced Emily Blunt to a broader audience, it was The Devil Wears Prada two years later that brought her international fame. The cult classic is most widely remembered for a pitch-perfect Meryl Streep trading barbs with Anne Hathaway as a clueless fish out of water. It's a testament to Blunt's talent that she can even hold her own in such an environment, let alone craft a character capable of stealing scenes from some of the finest actors in the business.

3 The English (2022)

Although Emily Blunt is primarily known for her work in movies, one of her most captivating projects is an Amazon original TV series, The English . Blunt plays an English woman, Cornelia Locke, seeking revenge for her son's death in the Old West. She's an unconventional heroine, and her status as an outsider allows her to burst open people's preconceived notions about gender roles and justice. The violence of the show underlines Cornelia's blood-soaked righteous anger, which Blunt manages to couple with moments of heart and humor.

2 Oppenheimer (2023)

Oppenheimer overflows with fantastic performances , yet Emily Blunt stands out by offering something different. She plays Kitty Oppenheimer, the long-suffering wife of J. Robert Oppenheimer, played by Cillian Murphy. She makes the most of her limited screen time, serving as a powerful reminder that while men were agonizing over their attempts to sway the balance of global power, women were still largely confined to domestic life. Blunt plays Kitty's testimony at the security hearing with expert deftness. Kitty sees the proceedings for what they are, and Blunt captures the feelings of injustice that simmer beneath her surface, threatening to erupt.

1 A Quiet Place (2018)

Emily Blunt had very little experience in horror before A Quiet Place , but that did not prevent it from becoming her best movie. She and her husband John Krasinski - who also directed the movie - swiftly silenced any doubts with one of the most compelling original horror movies of the 21st Century. Blunt and Krasinski's natural chemistry translates wonderfully onto the big screen as parents who must protect their children in a world teeming with danger. Emily Blunt shines throughout, but the scene where she must endure the pain of childbirth in excruciating silence cements her performance as a modern horror classic.

Emily Blunt Missed Out On The MCU Because Of A Jack Black Comedy Flop

Posted: January 1, 2024 | Last updated: January 1, 2024

Jonathan Swift published his popular fantasy-cum-political-satire "Gulliver's Travels" -- a.k.a. "Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World. In Four Parts. By Lemuel Gulliver, First a Surgeon, and then a Captain of Several Ships" -- in 1726. Gulliver, in traveling to faraway and bizarre lands, finds several countries and kingdoms whose entire societies are focused on trivial matters, often to the point of ruination. In Lilliput, the citizens are six-inch-tall royals, and the country has split into factions over which side of the egg is more appropriate for cracking. Gulliver also visits the giant country of Brobdingnag, the floating island of Laputa, and several other fantastical places. To this day, Swift's novel is a provocative and pointed read, poking fun at governmental idiocy in general, and foolish obsessives in particular. 

Rob Letterman's 2010 film adaptation of "Gulliver's Travels" is ... not provocative. In fact, it's downright dumb. The 2010 film is set in the modern day, and Gulliver is a low-rent slob played by Jack Black , whisked off to faraway countries where he gets to be sloppy and selfish. The movie is a mere comedic adventure story, just without the humor and without the adventure. It takes place mostly in Lilliput and Brobdingnag, and it features a giant robot battle. The most poetic moment is when Jack recites the lyrics to Edwin Starr's "War." It wasn't well received . 

Emily Blunt appeared in "Gulliver's Travels" as Mary, the Princess of Lilliput, a central figure in the Lilliputian political intrigue. As revealed by the new book "MCU: The Reign of Marvel Studios" by Joanna Robinson, Dave Gonzales, and Gavin Edwards, Blunt had to make this film instead of auditioning to play Black Widow in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. 

She said explicitly which gig she would have rather had.

Blunt Widow

The Black Widow was introduced in Jon Favreau's 2010 film "Iron Man 2." Black Widow was a secret Russian spy dressed in a black catsuit and equipped with small weapons and acrobatic fighting skills. The role ultimately went to Scarlett Johansson who played the part in nine feature films. 

According to "MCU," Favreau was eager to work with Emily Blunt, favoring her in the role. She had recently appeared in the hit 2006 comedy "The Devil Wears Prada" as a catty secretary, and starred as the title character in the 2009 romance "The Young Victoria." Blunt was well-established, poised for superstardom. The MCU was nothing but potential energy at that time, and many predicted (correctly) that the series would be massively successful. Blunt wanted in.

It seems, however, that "Devil" and "Travels" were part of a three-picture contract that Blunt had already signed with 20th Century Fox, and she was stuck. However much she might have wanted to play a high-profile superheroine role, she needed to play the Princess of Lilliput first. "Travels" was filmed in March 2009. "Iron Man 2" in April. Damn conflicts.

Lest one think Blunt ever felt she was "above" superhero material, she wanted to clarify that wasn't the case, saying: 

"It's not beneath me. It's not. I loved Iron Man, and I wanted to work with Robert Downey Jr. [...] I was contracted to do 'Gulliver's Travels' -- I didn't want to do 'Gulliver's Travels.' It was a bit of a heartbreaker for me because I take such pride in the decisions that I make."

Blunt would play an action hero in "Edge of Tomorrow." She will likely get her first Oscar nomination for "Oppenheimer." She's done well enough.

Emily Blunt Doesn’t Care if Her ‘Oppenheimer’ Character Is Likable

As the brilliant but flawed Kitty Oppenheimer, the actress plays a woman who had “extraordinary qualities, as well as ones that really let her down as a person.”

  • Share full article

A portrait of Emily Blunt, sitting on a chair. She wears a red sleeveless top, red pants and red high heels.

By Marc Tracy

In “ Oppenheimer ,” the writer and director Christopher Nolan ’s summer blockbuster biopic — three words that generally don’t go together — the character of Kitty Oppenheimer is effaced twice over.

Kitty, played by Emily Blunt, is the woman behind the man: Though a scientist herself, she is the sidelined wife of J. Robert Oppenheimer ( Cillian Murphy ), the American physicist who led the development of an atomic weapon during World War II at Los Alamos, N.M. “Oppenheimer” is emphatically his movie, so much so that a lot of the script was written in the first person (“I OPEN my eyes- JUMP out of bed- SCRAMBLE to dress”).

And second, though Kitty was Robert’s wife (they had two children together), she was not his first love nor, the film suggests, his strongest. The psychiatrist Jean Tatlock (Florence Pugh) was initially involved with Robert for three years, and the two continued to see each other, even after the Oppenheimers were married. Midway through the film, Kitty finds her husband manic over her death.

“How heartbreaking it must have been for her,” Blunt said, “to see him in that kind of state about another woman.”

It is all to say that Blunt, the London-born actress known for films such as “The Devil Wears Prada,” “Mary Poppins Returns” and “A Quiet Place,” might have disappeared into the three-hour epic, which was based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning biography “American Prometheus.” But Blunt’s is among the most memorable performances in a film packed with movie stars and acclaimed character actors. The winner of a Screen Actors Guild Award for “A Quiet Place” in 2019, Blunt is now a likely candidate for her first Academy Award nomination.

In a video interview last month, she talked about sympathetically portraying an unfortunate but not exactly likable character. These are edited excerpts from the conversation.

Christopher Nolan asked actors to learn about their real-life characters. What about Kitty Oppenheimer informed your performance?

We all read “American Prometheus.” On the flight out to Albuquerque, I could see other people trying to cram it. The wives in Los Alamos described her as being one of the most evil people they’ve ever met. Men were intrigued by her but a bit intimidated. Kitty didn’t do small talk. She only did big talk.

Robert and Kitty Oppenheimer temporarily offloaded their baby son to their friends, the Chevaliers, because they were so overwhelmed. Was that scene difficult to perform?

I have 9- and 7-year-old girls, and I adore being a mom. I’ve always really loved kids. So it’s quite hard to be so cold-shouldered with these little ones on set. Kitty’s clearly got trauma there — trauma that wasn’t named at the time. She has descended into drinking too much. I tried to empathize with the woman who was in possession of a phenomenal brain herself, who is having to contort herself into the good housewife-y. It must have been agony for someone like her, who was so wild, so brilliant, should never have been a mother, and clearly had huge depression after the kid was born.

How do you balance empathy with being true to the character, potentially at the expense of likability?

For me, it’s never important if someone is likable. I just have to understand them. I could play that quiet desperation of the character, the restlessness and that unashamed flair that she had, which was so fiery and exciting. And yet she was this very stabilizing force for him. She was his most vigorous protector. I think she had rather extraordinary qualities, as well as ones that really let her down as a person. She is abrasive and flawed, but I really sympathized with that idea of someone deteriorating at the ironing board, when she should have been made for intellectual endeavors that would have thrilled her.

Were there any other scenes that unlocked Kitty for you?

Do you remember the scene under the rock with Cillian? He’s gibbering with incoherence about his lover.

When I read the scene, I was like, “Wow, that’s so interesting, it’s almost like he can’t see that he’s speaking to his wife.” And I slapped him — Chris was like, “Slap him.” It’s not in the movie, but I hit that famous cheekbone way too many times. Maybe what I played more is her attempt to save face. Like: “Pull yourself together, people here depend on you.” It’s more like, “ I depend on you.”

How did the unconventional, first-person nature of the screenplay influence how you approached the role?

It was made clear to all of us that this is a single perspective. Oppenheimer’s character is going to reach through the screen and pull you inside of his head, and you’ve got these rather more wild, colorful characters around him. We were there to emotionally elicit different sides of this character.

I interviewed Nolan shortly before “Oppenheimer” was released about the IMAX 70-millimeter format.

It must have been like Dork Central for him. The passion about film is infectious.

What was it like shooting with the IMAX cameras?

It would be brought in like a massive fridge. And it’s loud: It sounds like Chewbacca coming in. There’s something freeing, because you know that it’s going to capture every little flicker and nuance on anyone’s face. But it is loud, and at first you’re like, “How am I going to function?” It’s the understated nature of Chris’s sets, the focus and lack of chaos, that it was never this declamatory moment when the IMAX would come in.

How would you contrast Nolan’s “calm” sets with others you’ve been on?

On some sets you’re flying by the seat of your pants. It can work both ways: With a comedy or something that’s more free-spirited, sometimes it’s great for it to be a bit more chaotic. But with Chris, it’s his preparation, so that when you show up, you don’t feel rushed as an actor. I’m sure the crew was horizontal every night by 7 p.m.
