Cate Blanchett joins the jury of The Hope Prize in its second year

Hey everyone!

Cate is back to judge the Brotherhood of St Laurence’s literary award. The Hope Prize, short story competition, is open for entries until January 31, 2018. Read more below.


Cate Blanchett has joined a stellar cast of judges for a new round of the Hope Prize awarded to a short story exploring resilience amid poverty in Australia.

The writing competition is run by the national welfare group Brotherhood of St Laurence to challenge common stereotypes of what it means to be poor and disadvantaged in an otherwise prosperous country.

The Brotherhood has also signed up author Kate Grenville and former Governor General Quentin Bryce as judges. It will be a sequel for the trio who first came together to judge the inaugural Hope Prize for the welfare group in 2016.

Farah Farouque, from the Brotherhood, said using the medium of short stories, which could be based on fact or fiction, had proved to be a great way to reach new audiences.

”When we ran the competition for the first time we were overwhelmed by close to 1000 entries and the winning short stories were published in an anthology appropriately called ‘Hope’.”

“Through the Hope Prize we want to find evocative new voices and champions to explore social issues that deserve more focus.”

The competition is supported by philanthropy and the winning story story will be awarded $10,000.

In addition, two Women’s Writing Career Development Scholarships, valued at $5,000 each, will also be awarded.

The Art of Thor: Ragnarok Cover Revealed!

Hey everyone!

We got a new look of Cate Blanchett as Hela!

Marvel Studios’ Visual Development Supervisor & Concept Artist Andy Park has now used his Twitter account to reveal something else that fans will soon be able to get their hands on: the cover art for film’s official companion book, The Art of Thor: Ragnarok. Revealing half of the wrap-around cover illustration Park created for the book, the image highlights four main characters from the film: Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Hela (Cate Blanchett), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and Loki (Tom Hiddleston). See the cover art below:

Of all the characters featured on the cover, Hela, with her wondrous horned headdress, clearly stands out the most – posed to project the sort of power-hungry, maniacal persona the character has demonstrated in footage released from the film so far.
Amazon put up the official art book up for pre-order and the cover is an image that we haven’t seen yet.
The 240 page art will be released on the 14th, a full two weeks after the movie comes out so there must be something juicy there, and is currently retailing for $50.

Thor: Ragnarok will be released on November 3rd(USA).

Cate Blanchett to Star in Ivo van Hove Stage Adaptation of ALL ABOUT EVE

Hey everyone!

Exciting news for 2018! A new play with Cate Blanchett! Read more information below.

Baz Bamigboye of The Daily Mail has reported that Academy Award winning actor, Cate Blanchett, has signed on to play the role of Margo Channing in a stage adaptation of the classic film All About Eve.

The adaptation, which will be directed by Tony Award winner, Ivo van Hove is expected to arrive on the West End in 2018. The play will be produced by Sonia Friedman Productions and Fox Stage Productions.

The 1950 film, All About Eve, is written and directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz, based on the short story “The Wisdom of Eve,” by Mary Orr, and stars Bette Davis as Margo Channing, the prominent yet aging Broadway star. Anne Baxter plays Eve Harrington, a willingly helpful young fan who insinuates herself into Channing’s life, threatening Channing’s career and personal relationships. All About Eve was nominated for 14 Academy Awards and won 6, including Best Picture.

Cate Blanchett made her Broadway debut this season in THE PRESENT. Her other stage appearances include Plenty (1999), Hedda Gabler (2006), for which she received the Ibsen Centennial Commemoration Award, and Benedict Andrews’ epic production of The War of the Roses (2009), in which she played the roles of Richard II and Lady Anne. Other notable productions include Top Girls, Hamlet, The Tempest and Oleanna. Her film roles include Carol, Truth, Cinderella, The Monuments Men, Blue Jasmine, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Hanna, Robin Hood, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, I’m Not There, Elizabeth: The Golden Age, The Good German, Notes on a Scandal, Babel, Little Fish, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, The Aviator, Coffee and Cigarettes, The Missing, The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Veronica Guerin, Heaven, The Shipping News, Charlotte Gray, Bandits, The Gift, The Talented Mr Ripley, Pushing Tin, Elizabeth, Oscar and Lucinda.

Ivo Van Hove won the 2016 Tony Award for Best Direction of a Play for ARTHUR MILLER’S A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE. As General Director of Holland’s leading theatre company Toneelgroep Amsterdam, Ivo Van Hove has staged many internationally acclaimed productions, including, in New York: Alice in Bed, More Stately Mansions (Obie Award), A Streetcar Named Desire, Hedda Gabler(Obie), The Misanthrope, The Little Foxes, and Scenes From a Marriage, all at the New York Theatre Workshop; Roman Tragedies, Cries and Whispers, Opening Night, Angels in America, and Antigone at BAM; and Teorema at the Lincoln Center Festival.
