News on ‘Weightless’

After years of silence, there are some news about the second collaboration between Cate Blanchett and Terrence Malick. According to Indiewire, the movie will be released in UK this June.

The British Board of Film Classification has announced some information about Malick’s next feature film “Weightless,” about intersecting relationships in the Austin music scene.

It’s 145 minutes long and it boasts a cast that includes Ryan Gosling, Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara, Haley Bennett, Michael Fassbender, Val Kilmer, Benicio Del Toro, Clifton Collins Jr., Angela Bettis, Bérénice Marlohe, Florence Welch, Holly Hunter, and presumably many more. It’s also rated 15 for “infrequent strong sex and sex references” which means it will probably receive an R-rating by the MPAA when it hits the United States.

“Weightless” currently has a UK release date of June 24th, but that might be subject to change.

Marvel Studios Confirms Stellar New Cast Members of the Highly Anticipated ‘Thor: Ragnarok’

Exciting news for Cate!

Two-time Oscar®-winner Cate Blanchett (“Blue Jasmine,” “Carol, “Cinderella”) joins Marvel Studios’ “Thor: Ragnarok” as the mysterious and powerful new villain Hela, along with Jeff Goldblum (the upcoming “Independence Day: Resurgence,” “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” “Jurassic Park”) who joins the cast as the eccentric Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson (“Creed,” “Selma”) who will bring the classic hero Valkyrie to life on the big screen, and Karl Urban (“Star Trek” trilogy, “The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King”) who will add his might to the fray as Skurge.

Rounding out the cast for the film is three-time Oscar®-nominee Mark Ruffalo (“Spotlight,” “The Kids Are All Right,” “Foxcatcher”), reprising his role of Bruce Banner/the Hulk from “Marvel’s The Avengers” and Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron.”

“The continuation of the epic Thor franchise will be powerful and unique, and with the additions of Cate, Jeff, Tessa, Karl, and Mark to the cast we have the makings of his most dangerous and heroic adventure yet,” said Producer Kevin Feige. “The sheer, raw talent each of these actors brings to the screen can’t be quantified. Having any one of them join the Marvel Cinematic Universe would be an honor, and having all of them is incredible.”

Thor’s new cast members join returning stars Chris Hemsworth (“Rush,” “In the Heart of the Sea,” “Ghostbusters”) in the title role for the fifth time; Tom Hiddleston (“Crimson Peak,” “The Night Manager,” “Kong: Skull Island”) as Thor’s adversarial, adopted brother, Loki; Golden Globe® and Screen Actors Guild Award winner Idris Elba (“The Dark Tower,” “Luther,” “Beasts of No Nation”) as the Asgardian sentry, Heimdall; and Academy Award®-winner Sir Anthony Hopkins (“Silence of the Lambs,” “Nixon,” “Hitchcock”) again portraying Odin, Ruler of Asgard.

“Thor: Ragnarok,” the third installment of Marvel’s popular Norse Super Hero, is directed by Oscar®-nominated filmmaker Taika Waititi (“Two Cars, One Night,” “What We Do in the Shadows,” “Hunt for the Wilderpeople”). Kevin Feige will produce the film, joined by executive producers Louis D’Esposito, Brad Winderbaum, Victoria Alonso, Thomas M. Hammel and Stan Lee.

Thor: Ragnork is set for release on November 2017.

Cate Blanchett as UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador for Hands Up for Syria

Cate Blanchett as UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador for Hands Up for Syria

Good evening everyone! On May 9th, Cate Blanchett attended the Hands Up For Syria event in her new role of UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador.

Speaking of her recent meetings with Syrian refugee families in Jordan, Cate Blanchett said:

“When I asked parents what hopes they held for the future, their message was clear: for their children to have an education, not just primary education but secondary and on to tertiary.  …We cannot allow a whole generation to be lost; uneducated, disenfranchised, alienated. 

For how will Syria ultimately rebuild without engineers, doctors, teachers, accountants, without journalists, artists … The funds raised by the Appeal are protecting that vital right to education, giving Syrian refugee children a future, giving Syria a future.”

The initiative, promoted by the Said an Asfari Foundations, aims to raise money in response to the millions of children and young people from Syria that are out of education within Syria and in the surrounding countries.

UNHCR Japan released four new images from the visit Cate and her husband Andrew Upton made in a refugees camp in Jordan.
