   'MARY POPPINS RETURNS'
THIS CHRISTMAS SEASON!
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious is something you, sadly, won't hear in this one (for reasons unknown) but MARY POPPINS RETURNS is still ready to
Mary Poppins Returns December 19th!
fly down into cinemas near you December 19th just in time for Christmas holidays! What can we expect from the latest movie adaptation of P. L. Travers' (who never liked the first movie) book on the famous nanny? We should probably stay reserved given that it was directed by Rob Marshall who is known for lack of substance and depth in his musicals, but Emily Blunt in the lead role might just save the thing in the end! Set in 1935 London, 25 years after the events of the original film, it sees Poppins, the former nanny of Jane and Michael Banks,

    1. if by some chance it does not turn boring and shallow it will be the first one for him :) Remember his INTO THE WOODS and MEMOIRS OF A GEISHA or CHICAGO? Absolute soulless borefests, but visually very beautiful.

  4. Dame Angela Lansbury, what an actress!
    She has no looks and charisma to work for her. It's her great acting talent that does that.

    1. don't you just like the costume Sandy Powel did for her? Marshall almost always works with Coleen Atwood, but Sandy did amazing job with those polka dots and blue and red mix! Just look at those gloves!

    2. I am loving the gloves! The whole wardrobe is amazing. Then again, Emily could make a trash bag look amazing.

    3. she certainly could, she really is such a bitch :) as if it wasn't enough for her to look gorgeous like a rose and have amazing talent, but she also had to take the hottest and cutest hunk in Hollywood for husband :))

    1. she's the absolute hope of Hollywood. She was literally the only choice of the director who only wanted to do it if she is in.
