Emily Blunt Earns Rave Reviews in New 'Mary Poppins' Movie

Playing Topher Grace Carries Wife Over Puddle at ‘Mary Poppins’ Premiere

It really is “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!”

The new “Mary Poppins Returns” starring Emily Blunt got rave reviews during its premiere in Los Angeles Thursday night.

Blunt, as the magical nanny, hit the red carpet with her husband John Krasinski, who said he bawled his eyes out watching the film, crying through her entire performance.

Actor Dick Van Dyke, 92, who played chimney sweep in the remake as well as the original 52 years ago, danced on the red carpet with his wife, 47-year-old Arlene Silver.  

Now if only Mary Poppins’ umbrella had made an appearance at the premiere and lifted actress Ashley Hinshaw over a puddle so her husband actor Topher Grace wouldn’t have had to.

“Mary Poppins Returns” comes as a sequel of the 1964 original, featuring Emily Mortimer as the grown-up Jane Banks and Ben Whishaw as an older Michael Banks.

The movie officially hits theaters in December.
