Emily Blunt 'terrified' after being offered Mary Poppins role

Former President Barack Obama

Blunt stars as Mary Poppins opposite Miranda as Jack, while the piece also stars Colin Firth, Meryl Streep, Angela Lansbury, Ben Whishaw and Emily Mortimer.

Jurgen Klopp deluded to expect upturn in form from Liverpool’s Dominic Solanke
It's a good decision to stay in charge of the game, and second half we could do that again. We lost the ball too easy in the first half, so big credit to them.

We'll find out how it's received when Mary Poppins Returns lands in cinemas on 21 December. Travers inscriptions are quite rare. "He just wants it to feel like a confident, exciting experience", Blunt says of her convincing, characterful portrayal of Mary Poppins. Mary Poppins Returns is set in Depression-era London of the mid-'30s (the actual time period of PL Travers' books), and 25 years after the events that transpired in the first film. I would want Cherry Tree Lane to have a curve to it because that's the Cherry Tree Lane we all know. "It's very high. Rob (Marshall) wanted to do one shot where I start in the air and I come down and the cameras are here and I walk straight into my close-up".

Dodgers Complete Multi-Player Deal With Reds
Kemp is entering the final season of an eight-year, $160-million contract he initially signed with Los Angeles in 2012. The Post's Joel Sherman reports the Dodgers will also send $7 million to the Reds in the deal.

Mary Poppins returns to theaters just in time to put a bow on Disney's big box office year. "I think the film is one of those films that's seared into people's memories as an emblem of their nostalgia in many ways", Blunt suggested, remembering her childhood fondness of the original film. It follows the Banks family decades after Mary Poppins' original visit, with the character formerly played by Julie Andrews. To promote the already highly-buzzed-about film, on Tuesday night musical superfan James Corden invited stars Emily Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda to help him perform 22 musicals in one 12 minute long take. Until I see the movie myself, which I hope to do with my family over the holidays I can not say whether I will find the balance is right or not.
