Debuted during the Oscars, kind of lacks the sparks one wants from a “Mary Poppins” trailer. Love Emily Blunt, Ben Whishaw, Dick Van Dyke, Emily Mortimer, Lin Manuel-Miranda — oh, and Meryl Streep, Colin Firth, Angela Lansbury and David Warner.
So Rob Marshall has a lot to work with. The director of “Chicago” and “Into the Woods” better have some tunes, though. Sherman Brothers quality tunes.
