An Evening With… Emily Blunt

Please note: Be sure to arrive early for this event, as seats will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Arts Circle Members receive reserved seating.

Film Independent and Universal Pictures invite Film Independent Members to join us for a career retrospective and intimate discussion with Emily Blunt, moderated by award-winning director Rob Marshall (Chicago, Mary Poppins Returns), as she recounts her celebrated, daring and multifaceted career, leading up to her critically acclaimed performance in Oppenheimer.

Emily Blunt is a Golden Globe and SAG Award-winning actress, whose transformative ability and versatile performances make her one of the most in-demand actresses of today.

Most recently, you can find Blunt starring opposite Chris Evans in Pain Hustlers, an American conspiracy drama film directed by David Yates and adapted from a screenplay by Wells Tower, based on a 2018 New York Times Magazine article, “The Pain Hustlers,” by Evan Hughes, and his subsequent novel The Hard Sell, released in 2022. Blunt also recently starred opposite Cillian Murphy, Robert Downey Jr. and Matt Damon in Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer. She gave a stellar performance as Kitty Oppenheimer, the wife of scientist J. Robert Oppenheimer, who ran the Manhattan Project that led to the invention of the atomic bomb. In addition to these two compelling film roles, Blunt was also recently on the small screen, starring in The English, a seven-part western drama television miniseries for Amazon and BBC that was released in 2022.

Coming up for Emily, she will be part of IF in a star-studded cast alongside John Krasinski, Matt Damon and Ryan Reynolds. Directed by John Krasinski, the animated film follows a young girl who goes through a difficult experience and then begins to see everyone’s imaginary friends who have been left behind as their real-life friends have grown up. Also in 2024, Emily can be found starring opposite Ryan Gosling in the action thriller film The Fall Guy, directed by David Leitch and written by Drew Pearce. In addition, Emily is set to reteam with Dwayne Johnson’s Seven Bucks Productions for a new action-adventure, Kate Warne. The film is based on the real-life Warne, who was the first woman to become a detective at the Pinkerton Agency. In addition to starring, Blunt’s Ledbury Productions will serve as a producer.

In 2018, Blunt demonstrated her incredible talent by starring in both the modern horror thriller A Quiet Place as well as Mary Poppins Returns, the sequel to the 1964 classic Mary Poppins. For her work in the Academy Award-nominated film, she received Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild and Critics Choice Award nominations for her work as the iconic titular character. Blunt won a Screen Actors Guild Award for her work in Paramount/Platinum Dunes’ A Quiet Place, opposite John Krasinski, who also wrote and directed the film. The critically acclaimed and Academy Award-nominated film topped the $300 million mark at the worldwide box office and went on to win and be nominated for numerous prestigious awards, including winning a Critics Choice Award for Best Sci-Fi/Horror Movie.
