The biggest stars have been witnessed to majorly take part in movies which will be going on in the franchise for a while. But that is definitely not the case with Emily Blunt as she has largely avoided the game of franchise. The movies she is seen in are not some big- money makers but primarily they are headlined movies which aim at growing up the character and not let it move forward onto another series. This tendency is pretty much clear with her breakthrough movie, “The Devil Wears Prada” which was undoubtedly a hit but wasn’t sustained for an ongoing cinematic universe. Not sticking up for long ongoing series means that Emily Blunt never made it to the list of movies hitting the jackpot of $1 billion worldwide — but it also means she’s built a career that spans a wide variety of genres.

Let’s have a look at Emily Blunt’s biggest films:

The Wolfman

This movie was released in 2010 in the month of February. It was expected that the big names in the movie like Emily Blunt and Benicio del Toro would help it to become a big-scary monster movie but even though Blunt was in the leading role, it couldn’t help it and this movie raked $139 million which was even less than the production cost of $150 million.


The Huntsman: Winter’s War

This sequel of 2012’s “Snow White and the Huntsman” is loaded with high-profile performers like Blunt, Theron, and Jessica Chastain. Emily was in the character of Queen Freya who is the sister of Charlize Theron’s villain, Queen Ravenna. Here Blunt’s character is portraying an ice queen. This was, although a sequel, didn’t made enough to become a franchise. On a budget of $115 million “Winter’s War” made nowhere near enough to justify its price tag.

This movie has big name actors like Bruce Willis and Emily Blunt which helped the audience to understand that this is not one of those run-of-the-mill sci-fi-action movies. “Looper” managed to scare up a $176 million worldwide gross. “Looper” cost only $30 million to make, which means it made back double its price tag through its $66 million domestic gross alone.

The Girl on the Train

This movie proved to be a solid box office performer with a $173 million worldwide gross even though Emily Blunt was nobody’s love interest, in fact she doesn’t even share a movie poster with a male actor. But it was Emily Blunt’s name which drove this movie to become a hit.

Many other productions can be added to this list namely: Gnomeo and Juliet, Into the woods, Gulliver’s Travels, A quiet place part II, The devil wears Prada, A quiet place, Mary Poppins returns and Edge of Tomorrow which tells us the versatility of Emily Blunt’s career.
