Get a full look at Emily Blunt as Mary Poppins, yall!

We live in a time when magic is more necessary than ever. More so than the magic itself, we need a dapper-looking, happy-go-lucky woman like Mary Poppins to come flying in on an umbrella to deliver it to us. Emily Blunt will fill that role in MARY POPPINS RETURNS and you can get your first full look at her on the cover of the new Entertainment Weekly. Of course, you can skip buying a...

Get a better look at Emily Blunt & Lin-Manuel Miranda in Mary Poppins pics

Late last week we got our first look at Emily Blunt as Mary Poppins in the upcoming MARY POPPINS RETURNS. Though it wasn’t a great look we still got to see that Poppins will be returning in style with a hat I assume is perfect for drinking tea in, especially if you’re in an Oscar Wilde story. But now we have some new images, and Blunt is looking even more dapper than...

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! Mary Poppins Returns begins filming

MARY POPPINS, like the SOUND OF MUSIC or WIZARD OF OZ, is one of those magical, feel-good classics that follow you forever. Of course, just like anything beloved nowadays, a remake of the film is happening to remind you with a modern film just how great the old one is. Said remake has just begun filming, and with it we’ve gotten a full synopsis. MARY POPPINS RETURNS has...

Dick Van Dyke reveals that he'll be appearing in Mary Poppins Returns

It's always a tall order when you are tasked with following up a classic film such as MARY POPPINS, let alone over fifty years later, but that's exactly what Rob Marshall (INTO THE WOODS) is aiming to do with MARY POPPINS RETURNS. Starring Emily Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda , the upcoming sequel takes place 25 years after the original in Depression-era London and follows...

Colin Firth to join Emily Blunt in Mary Poppins Returns

While I'm still questioning the need for a sequel to MARY POPPINS, after all, the original was practically perfect in every way, Disney seems to be packing the film full of so many talented individuals that it's becoming awfully difficult to have anything bad to say about the upcoming film. MARY POPPINS RETURNS stars Emily Blunt in the title role and now Variety has reported...

Emily Mortimer joins up with Mary Poppins Returns

When it comes to remakes, particularly those of classic and beloved films, most of us are rightfully skeptical, but Disney is making it awfully difficult to have anything bad to say about the upcoming MARY POPPINS RETURNS, which, to be fair, is technically a sequel to the original rather than a straight up remake. The studio has been assembling quite the talented cast for the sequel and...

Disney is going to re-live-action another Mary Poppins

We already know that Disney is on this massive kick of turning their classic animated films into live-action movies. It's a genius way for them to keep mining these well-known properties for fresh box office dollars, and I wish I was the one who thought of it, because instead of writing this, I'd be laughing all the way to the bank. However, I don't know that I ever saw the...

Ang Lee's next film will be a 3D boxing epic

Ang Lee does not like to repeat himself. Just look at his films and see if there is anything that thematically or visually ties them together: THE ICE STORM, EAT DRINK MAN WOMAN, SENSE AND SENSIBILITY, HULK, BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN, LIFE OF PI, CROUCHING TIGER HIDDEN DRAGON. Each is a unique genre and has a distinct visual flair. The only consistent things about Ang Lee are his varied...

Cinematographer Christopher Doyle trash talks Life of Pi, Lincoln, and the Academy Awards

I will start this out by saying that I loved LIFE OF PI, but did not agree with it winning an award for cinematography at the Academy Awards. The movie is beautifully shot, but is primarily CGI. Awarding the Oscar to it would be like awarding a cinematography trophy to a Pixar film. Not to take anything away from the quality of the movie, but they are different skill sets lent to their...

Review: Life of Pi

PLOT: The story of Pi (Suraj Sharma)- a sixteen year-old Indian boy, who survives a shipwreck, and finds himself adrift on a lifeboat with a Bengal Tiger- named Richard Parker. Not only does Pi have to try and survive on the open ocean, but he also has to use all of his ingenuity to keep the tiger tame and fed- lest it devour him. REVIEW: An adaptation of Yann Martelís...

New poster round-up: Life of Pi, Wreck-It Ralph, Les Miserables, and On the Road

If running these poster round-ups has taught me anything over the last months, its that a good piece of promotional artwork is hard to find. And for, that matter, it is often the most well-intentioned of the lot that are the most unintentionally funny.  Which is at least better (I think) than a bad photoshop job - and while most of these posters have plenty of photoshopping going on,...
