Actress Emily Blunt talks to Kirsty about her latest role as FBI agent Kate Macer in drug cartel film Sicario. She discusses training with FBI agents to research the role and the position of women in Hollywood action blockbusters. Sky's new comedy drama, You, Me and the Apocalypse, imagines the world on the brink of disaster as a meteorite hurtles towards earth, threatening to wipe out the human race. The British and American cast includes Rob Lowe as a foul mouthed Priest and Pauline Quirke. Natalie Haynes reviews.
