List of the Five Best Movies Starring Emily Blunt

Emily Blunt

Both Edge of Tomorrow and A Quiet Place show that Emily Blunt can compete with the best performers in the business. She has also starred in many critically acclaimed films.

This romantic comedy gives Blunt a chance to show off her chops and was almost unjustly missed. Her fascinating metamorphosis from shy youngster to royal ruler is a study in subtlety.

1. The Girl in the Spider’s Web

In Pawel Pawlikowski’s do-or-die study of a poor, scraggly loner and a smirking rich girl, Emily Blunt was a natural. Her sly and whimsical performance may not have been perfect, but she made it so watchable that many consider this her first truly breakthrough movie.

From here, Blunt proved she can take on almost anything—including action, period pieces, sci-fi, and musicals. She has a knack for making even the most bland material feel believable, and she had amazing chemistry with Rupert Friend in this historical drama.

She also proved she can handle a more formulaic film like Judd Apatow’s seemingly fresh but secretly formulaic romcom about a procrastinating couple. This surprisingly intimate Indie film lets Blunt and co-stars Rosemarie DeWitt and Mark Duplass really flex their acting chops. The resulting chemistry is both genuine and swoon-worthy.

2. The Secret Life of the American Teenager

Emily Blunt made a name for herself on this ABC family drama by tackling teen issues like pregnancy, dating and parenthood with an authenticity that few TV shows can match. Blunt’s quiet means are hypnotic, allowing the character to convey so much with just a look or a catch in her voice.

Several years after her breakout success, Blunt flexed her acting chops in this small-scale dramedy about an unlikely pair of friends. In this primewire movies film that balances farce, romance and country-house drama, she and co-stars Rosemarie DeWitt and Mark Duplass deliver a performance that’s equal parts blushing intimacy and squirmy discomfort.

3. The Dark Knight Rises

Emily Blunt proved she can take on big movies, starring alongside the likes of Meryl Streep in this Oscar-winning film. Her performance as Miranda Priestly’s passive-aggressive assistant landed her critical and commercial success.

She’s also a joy to watch as a brash and determined FBI agent in this political thriller. Despite having to share the screen with Benicio del Toro and Daniel Kaluuya, Blunt makes every frame count.

She was also a refreshing presence in this sci-fi movie, proving she’s not just good at period dramas. This movie’s wildly inventive premise and charming performances made it a hit among genre fans and audiences alike. She’s set to impress again in 2023 with Christopher Nolan’s biopic of J. Robert Oppenheimer. Here’s hoping she gets to star alongside her husband John Krasinski. That would be a match made in heaven.

4. The Big Short

From The Devil Wears Prada to A Quiet Place, Emily Blunt has established herself as a major Hollywood star. Yet, she continues to surprise audiences with her intense acting talent and a willingness to tackle diverse projects.

In this surprisingly poignant comedy, Blunt delivers a performance that’s both empathetic and honest. Her chemistry with co-star Bill Nighy is so natural and real that it’s difficult to take your eyes off the screen.

This film combines farcical romcom with country-house drama when Iris invites her pal Jack (Mark Duplass) to stay at her family’s cabin off America’s northwest coast. While the movie isn’t flawless, Blunt and co-star Rosemarie DeWitt’s magnetism and grounded performances keep this likable romp from going completely off the rails.

5. The Internship

Despite a flimsy screenplay filled with every comedic cliche in the book, The Internship manages to stay afloat as a two-hour enjoyable movie thanks to Vaughn and Wilson’s dogged chemistry. As the last kids picked in the schoolyard of corporate life, Billy and Nick are paired with other social misfits including the apathetic Stuart Twombly (Dylan O’Brien) and the sex-obsessed Neha Patel (Tophit Raphael).

The film’s message is that it’s never too late to reinvent yourself. In the case of Nick and Billy, their apparent weaknesses—old age and lack of tech savvy—turn into strengths. The movie also serves as a satire of Google culture and an indictment of our excessively connected, self-absorbed world. Families can talk about the themes and messages in this movie. What aspects of the movie do you agree with or disagree with?
