On TIFF’s very first day, City News sat down with Emily Blunt to discuss the festival opener Looper.
The mind-bending film forays into the future; time travel has been invented but is illegal and only used by criminal organizations. ‘Loopers’ are hired guns tasked with wiping out mob targets who have been sent back in time, never to be seen in the future again. But problems arise when ‘Looper’ Joe [Gordon-Levitt] fails to kill his future self [Willis]. Blunt plays Sara, a single mom from Kansas with a heavy past who gets caught up in Joe’s complicated conundrum.
Entertainment Weekly have a new interview up with Emily in which she discusses Looper.
Up until this week, all the attention around the sci-fi thriller Looper has been on Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s transformation into a younger version of Bruce Willis. In the film, written and directed by Rian Johnson (Brick, The Brothers Bloom), Gordon-Levitt plays Joe, a mob assassin called a looper who kills off marks beamed back from the future. It’s a steady, well-paying, simple-if-brutal gig, until one day the mob decides to close your loop, and send back your future self to be killed off, severing all ties to the crime. Unfortunately for Gordon-Levitt, his older self is played by Bruce Willis, who escapes his assassination, forcing the younger Joe to try to chase down and murder his older self.
ScreenCrush and The Huffington Post have posted two new interviews with Emily in which she discusses Looper and her Comic Con appearance.
We’ve seen a bit of you in the trailers, but just a little taste. So what can you tell me about Sarah?
Well, I can’t tell you much really because my character’s plot line hinges on all of the big reveals and surprises of the movie and the twists. So I think that really the most I can say is that she’s an incredibly… She’s kind of a badass.
She’s living on a farm in the middle of nowhere and somehow myself and my family get embroiled in all of this craziness when Joe Gordon-Levitt allows his future self to run. And then when they are battling each other. So my family is somehow involved in all of this and the reasons why they’re battling. – Read All
You are on quite a run lately. Are you conscious of that? Is there a moment when you think, This is working out?
[Pauses] To be honest, I try not to think about that much. I find the job really precarious, you know? And I’m in love with it. I’m very lucky to be doing it. But, yet, I don’t know if you can ever bank on your position. It’s a very fickle business in many ways. So, all I want to do is keep playing great roles in great movies — whether they be made for $80,000 or $80 million. I don’t care. I just want to do good work. I think as soon as you state your position in this industry, you’re sort of stating your future as well. It’s dangerous, because you never f-cking know. You know? – Read All

The Toronto Star has a new article with Emily in which she discusses her new movie, Your Sister’s Sister.
Writer-director Lynn Shelton’s comedy Your Sister’s Sister reveals something you’ve probably never seen in a fiction film: genuine surprise.
Actress Emily Blunt gulps, gasps and breaks into a furious blush when Rosemarie DeWitt, playing her stepsister, reveals an embarrassingly intimate secret at the dinner table in director Lynn Shelton’s largely unscripted Your Sister’s Sister. The comedy, which was a hit with its world-premiere audience at TIFF last September, arrives in theatres Friday.
