We all love Emily Blunt and there is no doubt about it. Her acting skills are always on-point and she nails her characters almost all of the times. However, this time, it seems like the world is not happy with her upcoming project with Jamie Dornan, Christopher Walken and Jon Hamm. The mentioned cast members came together for a romantic, comedy movie titled Wild Mountain Thyme. Instead of inspiring the internet with its romantic theme, the trailer of the movie has people shocked with the Irish accents.
Wild Mountain Thyme and the Irish Accent
Nailing a foreign language as well as an accent is a tough job. Wild Mountain Thyme movie is based in Ireland. Therefore, John Patrick Shanley should have picked an Irish cast for the movie. He picked wonderful actors for the movie. But the internet is calling him out on failing the Irish community. Some have even called it cultural appropriation.
Set in rural Ireland, Wild Mountain Thyme is supposed to bring out the actual accent. The world is shocked with the accents Emily Blunt and Christopher Walken bring to the movie. However, they were not expecting Jamie Dornan to fall in line with them since he is Irish.
Jamie Dornan is a brilliant actor and I personally believe that he is still pretty much underrated. He got famous for his fifty shades role, something that does not justify his acting skills. And definitely made famous by the people who have not seen The Fall yet.

Leprechaun Museum is not happy with the accents. And Twitter is not accepting Jamie Dornan ‘faking’ the accent while he didn’t have to fake it at all. On the other hand, Emily Blunt’s fans are calling her out for accepting the role when she couldn’t nail the accent at all.
Even Dublin Airport took a dive and commented on the trailer:
Embassy of Ireland, USA stepped in as well:
To be fair, Irish accents are hard (we struggle with them at times). But otherwise #WildMountainThyme looks great. And, in Jamie Dornan & Emily Blunt, presents a remarkably realistic depiction, visually at least, of the average Irish man & woman. Truly, we are a beautiful people. https://t.co/B2HFOkAhJ0

Foil Arms and Hog, an Irish Trio, are going viral on Twitter alongside the Wild Mountain Thyme trailer. If you have witnessed the Emily Blunt Accent in the movie, you should see this too:

People on the internet are also comparing the movie with Emily In Paris:
Now we know how the French felt about Emily in Paris#WildMountainThyme

The psycho from The Fall
Thing is, I have watched The Fall, and Jamie Dornan’s role in it was way better than the one we are about to see when the movie comes out.
I didn’t think it was possible but Jamie Dornan has finally made a film worse than #50shadesofgrey Remember when he was good in The Fall and My Dinner with Hervé. Sack your agent Jamie!

And it does seem like I’m not the only one who thinks he nailed the accent in The Fall.
Jamie Dornan's Belfast accent in The Fall was class, didn't even realise he was American until this Wild Mountain Thyme trailer came out

There is whole article on Falling for Jamie Dornan, the real talent. This movie is not going to do good for his future projects. We miss “The Fall” guy.
Yes, but can we talk about the real crime here – making Jamie Dornan unattractive. Bring back the psycho from The Fall, because this is simply no good.
