A brand new trailer for Cinderella has been released, many new scenes! The movie opens on March 26, 2015.
Cate is currently in Berlin where she’s filming Julian Rosefeldt’s the Manifesto. Here’s a photo from the Daily Mail (and you can see more at their site) and a part of the article:
Cate will play twelve characters in the film project, as the basic premise is to take artist manifestos of all types and times – e.g. the Futurists and Dadaists, the Surrealists, Fluxus, the Situationists, Yvonne Rainer, Claes Oldenburg, Kazimir Malevich, Lebbeus Woods, Sol Lewitt and Dogma 95 – and combine them with everyday situations.
These twelve situations will be projected onto a separate screen for each scene, at an accompanying art installation.
Cate will inhabit the personas of a diverse range of characters; from a manager to a puppeteer, a newsreader to a factory worker or a taxi driver.
And instead of dialogue, she’ll speak the word’s of the specific artist’s manifesto to fill the scene.
The project is meant to be an homage to the milestones of artist manifestos and their impact on art history.
Certainly, Cate is no stranger to that sort of cinematic film after appearing as one of many interpretations of Bob Dylan in the 2007 film I’m Not There.
Here’s the first trailer for Knight of Cups which will premiere in February on the Berlin Film Festival. Still no date for a wide release.
Some Screen Captures:
Once there was a young prince whose father, the king of the East, sent him down into Egypt to find a pearl. But when the prince arrived, the people poured him a cup. Drinking it, he forgot he was the son of a king, forgot about the pearl and fell into a deep sleep. Rick’s [Christian Bale] father used to read this story to him as a boy. The road to the East stretches out before him. Will he set forth?
Terrence Malick’s Knight of Cups will premiere on the 65th Berlin Film Festival in February and it’ll be on competition.
Kenneth Branagh’s Cinderella will also premiere on the Festival but it’ll be out of competition.
The Festival runs through from February 5th to 15th.
The Jungle Book: Origins, Warner Bros.’s version of the Rudyard Kipling stories, has seen its release date pushed back by almost a year.
The studio has moved the opening date from Oct. 21, 2016 to Oct. 6, 2017.
It hasn’t abandoned that time, however, for at the same time, Warners has moved Geostorm, an environmental thriller starring Gerard Butler, into that Oct. 21 date.
Warners is competing with Disney on live-action Jungle Book adaptations, with the Disney project, currently in production with Jon Favreau at the helm, swinging to an Oct. 9, 2015 date.
Warners’ version is still in the early development stages with Andy Serkis attached to direct.
Sources say that the initial date was more of a placeholder than a firmly planted release date. There is a growing trend in distribution circles of grabbing dates and using them as temporary berths for movies before these cinematic souffles are fully baked.
The new date also gives additional time for Serkis and co. to further work on the special effects-heavy project.
The move not only puts some time and space between Disney’s movie, but it also puts some distance between it and the studio’s other jungle-swinging movie, Tarzan. The latter also opens on July 1, 2016.
Possible new Project for Cate!
Baltasar Kormakur is in negotiations to direct Cascade, a disaster thriller at 20th Century Fox that Cate Blanchett is circling.
Ridley Scott, Steve Zaillian, Garrett Basch and Michael Schaefer are producing the project, which will be a loose remake of 2003 BBC pseudo-documentary The Day Britain Stopped. Kieran Fitzgerald wrote the screenplay.
Cascade is set after an oil tanker collision in the Persian Gulf sets off an international crisis. Blanchett would play the tanker’s captain, who must find a way to prove that she did not commit a terrorist act.
The Imitation Game helmer Morten Tyldum was loosely attached in the summer, but talks never got off the ground.
Kormakur is the Icelandic director behind the Mark Wahlberg action thriller Contraband and the Wahlberg-Denzel Washington actioner 2 Guns.
He is currently in post on Everest, a true-life drama centering on an ill-fated climbing expedition whose all-star cast includes Jake Gyllenhaal, Josh Brolin and Kiera Knightley, among others.

“The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” brings to an epic conclusion the adventures of Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman), Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage) and the Company of Dwarves. The Dwarves of Erebor have reclaimed the vast wealth of their homeland, but now must face the consequences of having unleashed the terrifying Dragon, Smaug, upon the defenseless men, women and children of Lake-town.
As he succumbs to dragon-sickness, the King Under the Mountain, Thorin Oakenshield, sacrifices friendship and honor in his search for the legendary Arkenstone. Unable to help Thorin see reason, Bilbo is driven to make a desperate and dangerous choice, not knowing that even greater perils lie ahead. An ancient enemy has returned to Middle-earth. Sauron, the Dark Lord, has sent forth legions of Orcs in a stealth attack upon the Lonely Mountain. As darkness converges on their escalating conflict, the races of Dwarves, Elves and Men must decide—unite or be destroyed. Bilbo finds himself fighting for his life and the lives of his friends as five great armies go to war.

Cinderella will be released on March 13th, 2015
A live-action feature inspired by the classic fairy tale, Cinderella brings to life the timeless images from Disney’s 1950 animated masterpiece as fully-realized characters in a visually dazzling spectacle for a whole new generation.
The story of “Cinderella” follows the fortunes of young Ella (Lily James) whose merchant father remarries following the death of her mother. Eager to support her loving father, Ella welcomes her new stepmother (Cate Blanchett) and her daughters Anastasia (Holliday Grainger) and Drisella (Sophie McShera) into the family home. But, when Ella’s father unexpectedly passes away, she finds herself at the mercy of a jealous and cruel new family. Finally relegated to nothing more than a servant girl covered in ashes, and spitefully renamed Cinderella, Ella could easily begin to lose hope. Yet, despite the cruelty inflicted upon her, Ella is determined to honor her mother’s dying words and to “have courage and be kind.” She will not give in to despair nor despise those who mistreat her. And then there is the dashing stranger she meets in the woods. Unaware that he is really a prince, not merely an apprentice at the Palace, Ella finally feels she has met a kindred soul. It appears her fortunes may be about to change when the Palace sends out an open invitation for all maidens to attend a ball, raising Ella’s hopes of once again encountering the charming Kit (Richard Madden). Alas, her stepmother forbids her to attend and callously rips apart her dress. But, as in all good fairy tales, help is at hand, and a kindly beggar woman (Helena Bonham-Carter) steps forward and — armed with a pumpkin and a few mice — changes Cinderella’s life forever.
This holiday season, SK-II is launching limited edition designs of their cult favorite Facial Treatment Essence, with a floral design painted by Taiwanese artist Po Chih Huang. We recently caught up with the brand’s ambassador, Cate Blanchett, who told us which product is her favorite, what makes a gift meaningful, and what she loves most about the holidays.
Which of the Facial Treatment Essence Limited Edition designs is your personal favorite?
It’s a difficult choice, but the red bottle reminds me of the red of passion and excitement and all that is sensuous. Red is such an energetic, positive color, which seems to me to reflect the potential of the festive season. It makes me recall a combination of action and vision—acting on ones beliefs. Passion is a quality I admire in a woman.
What do you like most about the bottle?
All the special edition FTE festive bottles are so vital—flamboyant, strong, yet delicate. They are stunning ($205 each; nordstrom.com).
What do you like about the holiday season the most?
I look forward to the holiday season every year. Ours are always different, but essentially the ingredients are family, friends, and food. Everyone pitches in and the day itself rolls into the next one.
Where is your favorite place to spend the holiday season?
The place is secondary to the company. Sometimes it’s a last-minute trip away, but it’s usually in the home of a loved one, often at our place. I love it when the house if full of people and noise. So my favorite place would always include close friends and family.
Do you have any special holiday traditions?
I have been known to make the Christmas breakfast with an SK-II mask on—any female guest joining the breakfast does the same, and willingly. Last year my husband joked that the Facial Treatment Essence mask is my version of the Christmas cracker hat.
How do you prepare for a holiday party?
Frequently, leading up to Christmas there are a few late nights, so the SK-II eye cream and eye masks are my trusty friends over this period. All year-round I take the mask in my handbag—to the beach, to the mountains, on a plane—wherever we go, as it’s a wonderful pick-me-up for the skin during the day and part of my morning and night skin care routine.
In your opinion, why makes a gift meaningful and memorable?
When a gift is difficult to give away it becomes even more rare and precious; somehow gathering a part of the giver to the gift itself. My mother-in-law gave me her mother’s engagement ring a few years back. I know how much my mother-in-law’s mother meant to her, so to part with this and to watch the joy on her face when I wore it was very special.
