Emily attended the Christian Dior Presentation at the Paris Fashion Week earlier today, here are some photos. I’ve also added pictures from two events we were missing, Audi Polo Challenge and the 9th Annual American Institute For Stuttering Benefit Gala.
In Mexico, SICARIO means hitman. In the lawless border area stretching between the U.S. and Mexico, an idealistic FBI agent (Emily Blunt) is enlisted by an elite government task force official (Josh Brolin) to aid in the escalating war against drugs. Led by an enigmatic consultant with a questionable past (Benicio Del Toro), the team sets out on a clandestine journey forcing Kate to question everything that she believes in order to survive.
Sicario also stars Josh Brolin, Benecio Del Toro, Victor Garber, and Jon Bernthal. It hits theaters on September 18, 2015
The book is really good and I hope Emily gets the part!
The book has become a smash hit on best seller lists
Emily Blunt is in negotiations to star in the film adaptation of the best-selling thriller The Girl on the Train, DreamWorks has confirmed.
The book, a debut novel from Paula Hawkins, tells the story of Rachel, who constructs a make-believe perfect life for a couple she sees every day from her window on the train—until one day when she involves herself in their real-life drama.
The Girl on the Train has sold more than two million copies in the U.S. since its debut in January, making it the fastest-selling adult novel of all time. It has stayed on the New York Times best seller list for 20 weeks.
Blunt will appear in The Huntsman alongside Jessica Chastain and Charlize Theron next year; she was nominated for a 2015 best actress (musical or comedy) Golden Globe for her performance as the baker’s wife in Into the Woods.
At a press conference on Tuesday morning at Cannes, where the drug-trade drama “Sicario” will premiere in competition, Emily Blunt talked about a topic that seems to be prevalent at every festival panel this year: sexism in Hollywood. “In this film, you’d been asked early on if you’d write my part for a guy,” Blunt said, as she turned to director Denis Villeneuve.
“People were afraid [of the screenplay] because the lead was female,” Villeneuve said. “The screenwriter was asked to rewrite it several times.” But then Lionsgate came onboard, and allowed for the character to stay a woman.
Blunt plays an FBI agent enlisted on a mission to Mexico with potentially shadier characters played by Benicio del Toro and Josh Brolin. There aren’t any other women in the unit. “I get asked a lot, ‘You play a lot of tough female roles,’” Blunt said. “I don’t see them as tough.” She added: “I found this character damaged and vulnerable. She’s struggling in the role of being a female cop. It’s not safe.”
When asked about the lack of female co-stars onscreen, Blunt said with a resigned shrug: “It’s something I’ve become quite used to. It happens quite a lot on films. There aren’t a ton of chicks around.”
A reporter told Blunt about the report that several women at Cannes were turned away from the red-carpet premiere of “Carol,” because the festival mandates a high-heels-only policy when it comes to footwear. “I think everyone should wear flats, to be honest,” Blunt said. “We shouldn’t wear high heels anymore. That’s just my point of view I prefer to wear Converse sneakers. That’s very disappointing.”
Villenueve jumped in: “As a sign of protest, Benicio, Josh and I will walk the stairs in high heels tonight.” The line got a big laugh, and now every photographer on the red carpet will be angling to see if they keep that promise.
Later that evening, she walked the red carpet in tall metallic stiletto sandals, but changed to flats for the “Sicario” afterparty.
