5 Times Emily Blunt was a total badass
Share This Article:
On the 8th October 2015, Denis Villeneuve’s newest film, Sicario, is released. The film sees Emily Bluntplaying Kate Macer, an idealistic FBI Agent who is enlisted in a special task force by Josh Brolin’s Matt to help fight the escalating drug war on the U.S. Border. As you can tell from our early review of the film, we at The National Student are very excited about it. In particular however, we are excited by Emily Blunt. This role and recent films have seen her cement her credentials as a badass. And we’re here to show you exactly what makes her one, on and off screen. Cannes’ “Heels” policy In May of this year, when Blunt was at the wold famous film festival for Sicario, there was an infamous decision about what women would be allowed to wear on the red carpet. According to Cannes, it was heels or no go. There was total uproar from actors and directors of both genders, and across social media. When asked at a junket for Sicario for her opinion, Blunt’s response is typically direct and simultaneously polite. “Of course not… everyone should wear flats to be honest.” 2. Looper In this sci-fi starring action familiar actors Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Blunt steals the show. As Sara, the ex-city girl starting a new life as a farm-based mother, she’s tough and caring. Picking her best badass moment in the film is no trouble: it’s the scene when she shoots Young Joe straight on with a shotgun without a second’s hesitation when she realises that he’s looking for her son. Although the immortal line “if you show your face here again, I will cut you the fuck in half!” and the ease with which she summons Joe for some night-time comfort are both pretty badass.
