The costumes in upcoming Disney sequel #MaryPoppins Returns are the work of Oscar-winning designer Sandy Powell. The robin on Emily Blunt’s hat is a nod to the bird that perched on Mary’s finger during A Spoonful of Sugar in the 1964 film. #BigScreenDetails
Is #BenedictCumberbatch the best actor to play Winston? We asked #bookstagrammer@theclubofbooks who she’d cast in a reimagining of George Orwell’s 1984. “I'm going with Benedict Cumberbatch as Winston Smith. I can't think of anyone more fitting for this broody, contemplative character. Next would be Rachel McAdams for Julia! She is beautiful and would make the perfect whimsical, alluring character. Emmanuel Goldstein would be Willem Dafoe; a mysterious, enigmatic character who lurks in the shadows.” #BigScreenBooks
