It’s been a while since we’ve seen Emily Blunt and John Krasinski together, right? And these two are also rarely papped so it feels extra fresh. They were out for lunch in London on Sunday where they’ve been living since last year. Their daughters were enrolled in school there which is probably ending now or will be soon and I remember Emily saying in an interview a few months ago that her kids now speak with English accents. Now that things are opening up again, I wonder if this is permanent, or if they’ll go back to New York.
There’s a lot to celebrate right now for Emily and John. Their eleventh wedding anniversary is coming up in a couple of weeks and professionally, well, they’re still riding the high of A Quiet Place 2, one of the most successful films of the pandemic era as audiences went back to theatres specifically to see it, the first movie since the start of COVID to cross the $100 million threshold. A Quiet Place was already a win for Emily and John, a surprise hit, establishing John as accomplished actor-director. With the sequel now being forever known as the first post-pandemic blockbuster, it only adds to this value.
Speaking of blockbusters though, Emily’s getting ready for possibly another one. Jungle Cruise, with Dwayne The Rock Johnson, comes out in a month, on July 30. It’s Disney, so it’s family-friendly, it’s Emily + The Rock, it’s summer movie season, so expectations are high…and besides, people have been waiting on this one for a while. Although it’ll be interesting because the movie will be released on Disney+ and in theatres so I’m curious to see what those numbers will be like.
Emily’s also shooting a new series, The English, which is a western, for BBC One and Amazon. The show is set in the 1890s about a Englishwoman who makes her way to America to get revenge on a man. Sounds like Emily Blunt is coming for an Emmy next year.
