Rob Marshall interview

If you’re familiar with Einstein’s Theory of Relativity, you know that depending on the circumstances, 10 minutes can seem like it lasts forever or it can go by in the blink of an eye. When speaking with talent at a press junket, it regularly feels like the latter – which is why, when I spoke with Mary Poppins Returns director/co-choreographer Rob Marshall, I didn’t bother asking a wide range of questions that tried to cram in anecdotes from the entire production. Instead, I mostly kept the focus on one big stretch of the movie: the scenes in which live-action and animation interact with each other as Mary Poppins (Emily Blunt), Jack (Lin-Manuel Miranda) and the Banks children travel into a Royal Doulton bowl.

Even the greatest detective of all time struggles a bit with a selfie. The latest clip from the upcoming comedy Holmes & Watson shows the titular mystery-solving duo (Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly) requesting a picture with Queen Victoria (Pam Ferris), and possibly inventing the selfie long before the word entered today’s lexicon. But as the clip continues, we learn that perhaps there’s a reason that Watson’s newfangled invention never caught on.
