Hello Blanchetters!

It has been a quiet week considering how busy Cate has been for the last few weeks. Today we are posting content released during the week; first IndieWire released an interview with greek director Yorgos Lanthimos, who confessed Cate has reached out and wants to work with him. Maybe this is Cate’s next big collaboration? We’ll see! Meanwhile, here’s a fragment of the interview:

But there’s one major actor who has been eager to work with Lanthimos long before he made inroads to English-language productions. “Cate Blanchett was the first one that reached out,” Lanthimos said, in an interview with IndieWire from New York, while promoting the upcoming release of “The Favourite” and recalling the immediate aftermath of “Dogtooth.” “I’m still in contact with Cate, and we are trying to do something together.”
Blanchett has yet to speak publicly of her affinity for Lanthimos’ work, and representatives for the actress declined to comment. Nevertheless, a collaboration with Lanthimos would be a natural gamble for the A-list performer, whose stable of auteur collaborators includes Woody Allen, Terrence Malick, Todd Haynes, and Martin Scorsese. Lanthimos and Blanchett have overlapped at festivals in recent years: “The Lobster” was in competition at Cannes the same year as Haynes’ “Carol,” and Blanchett was spotted at the Venice International Film Festival premiere of “The Favourite” in late August.
“I’ve been so fortunate to work with great directors,” she told IndieWire in 2013. “In the end, I think that’s driving the conversation.”
Lanthimos added that Weisz reached out to him shortly after he heard from Blanchett — and as the cast of “The Favourite” proves, they weren’t the only actresses drawn to his work. “It was mostly women who reached out,” he said. “I don’t know what that says about my work, the work they were getting, or about male actors.” Regardless, he welcomed them into his domain. “It is true that the way the system works, you need name actors in order to put things together when you make English-language films,” he said. “I took great care in making sure that all these people reaching out wanted to be a part of it because of what the work was, not because something different might happen, and that they actually appreciated the work.”

While promoting IWC watches in Shanghai last week, Cate gave this interview to Fashion Ifeng where she talks about female and male perspectives in fashion and in cinema.

We have also added magazine scans from Harper’s Bazaar Taiwan, i Look Magazine and Cine Premiere Mexico to our Gallery and a little behind the scenes picture from “The House with a Clock in Its Walls” set, published by Loop Weekly. Enjoy!

‘La casa del reloj en la pared’: ¿Que harían Cate Blanchett y Jack Black con super poderes?

No pueden ser más majos.

Hoy, jueves 11 de octubre, llega a los cines la nueva apuesta de Steven Spielberg como productor, ‘La casa del reloj en la pared’. Esta comedia fantástica llena de aventuras y magia ha sido dirigida por el hasta ahora salvaje Eli Roth, que cambia totalmente de registro, y tiene al frente del reparto rostros tan populares como Cate Blanchett o Jack Black. Con motivo del estreno, nos reunimos con los actores en Londres para que nos contasen cosas como algo que nos rondaba en la mente desde que vimos la cinta, ¿para qué usarían sus poderes si los tuviesen en la vida real?.

La película adapta la novela de mismo nombre escrita por John Bellairs en 1973, e ilustrada por el mítico Edward Gorey. Esta nos cuenta la historia de Lewis, un huérfano que llega a la casa de su tío para descubrir que sus paredes guardan todo tipo de mágicos secretos. ¿Listos para descubrirlos en el cine?

Cate Blanchett: “Una no hace un filme para su propio placer”

La actriz australiana estrena hoy ‘La casa del reloj en la pared’

Se ha ganado con justicia un sitial entre las mejores actrices de Hollywood gracias a una serie de fabulosas interpretaciones que le han dejado dos Oscar y otras cinco nominaciones al premio más importante del cine. Pero si algo ha distinguido la carrera de Cate Blanchett es su predisposición a hacer todo tipo de películas, lo cual ha contribuido a que no sólo sea respetada sino también popular: El señor de los anillos, El hobbit, Indiana Jones y el reino de la calavera de cristal… En la misma línea se inscribe su papel en La casa del reloj en la pared , la incursión de Eli Roth en el cine familiar, en el que encarna a una bruja de apariencia muy normal que debe ayudar a un niño y al mago que encarna Jack Black a salvar al planeta de un terrible final.

El director imaginó a la bruja más poderosa de la Tierra y pensó en usted. ¿No le parece extraño?

No tengo la menor idea. A mí me atrajo la posibilidad de trabajar con Eli Roth, además de que había leído el primer libro de la serie cuando era niña. Las combinaciones inusuales me resultan muy atractivas. El hecho de que él tenga una trayectoria haciendo cine de horror y de pronto haya sido invitado a hacer un filme familiar me pareció muy especial. No sólo sabe cómo asustar a la audiencia sino que además es un gran cinéfilo. Me impresionó su amor y sus conocimientos sobre cine y específicamente sobre el mundo de Amblin. La idea de interpretar a una bruja que ha perdido su magia también me resultó muy atractiva.

¿Cuál es su relación con la magia?

La magia me hace gritar de emoción. Si en este momento entrara un mago, cortara un limón y sacara de dentro una carta que hubiese tenido que adivinar, me pondría a gritar de felicidad de forma incontrolable como si tuviera 5 años. Me fascina todo lo que tenga que ver con la magia, ya sea levitación o trucos con cartas…

¿Estaba buscando un filme que sus hijos pudieran mirar?

No necesariamente. Mi hijo mayor tiene 16 años y ha visto de todo. Cuando me enviaron el guión de este filme, le dije que iba a dirigirlo Eli Roth. Él me preguntó si no era el que hacía las películas de terror. Cuando le dije que sí, comentó que poner a Eli Roth en un filme de Amblin era puro combustible. Le pregunté si le parecía que tenía que decirles que sí y me respondió: “Por supuesto”. Siempre le pido su opinión. Pero particularmente en un proyecto como éste, yo quería saber si era algo que iría a ver cuando estuviese en los cines. Una no hace un filme para su propio placer. Se hacen muchas, y tienes que pensar si vas a poder llegar a la audiencia a la que le estás apuntando como actriz.

En mayo cumplirá 50. ¿De qué manera encara la siguiente década de su carrera?

¿Le preguntará lo mismo a Jack Black cuando le entreviste? A mí me encanta la historia y tengo muy presentes a todas las actrices que han pasado antes y gracias a las cuales he tenido tantas oportunidades. Siento que una vez que llegas a cierta posición es importante convertirte en mentora de las actrices jóvenes que vienen detrás. Eso me interesa más que pensar qué futuro tengo como actriz.

¿Como ve el movimiento del #MeToo al año de su inicio?

He estado leyendo mucho ultimamente sobre el movimiento feminista de la década del ‘70 y cómo se llegó a la elección de Reagan. Honestamente me ha hecho recordar la película Atrapado en el tiempo. Lo importante es que no sigamos teniendo la misma conversación dentro de 30 años. Algunos cambios han ocurrido muy rápidamente y otros llevará más tiempo que se asienten. Yo creo que la prensa tiene una enorme responsabilidad en el lenguaje que se usa para hablar de esto y cómo se trata el tema. Tampoco me parece que sea un tema aislado que sólo afecta a las mujeres, ni sólo ocurre en la industria en la que trabajo. Pero todos los que participamos en ella estamos muy expuestos y por eso tenemos una responsabilidad para exponer en público la forma en la que efectuamos los cambios y también hacerlo de una manera rápida, positiva y sostenible. En cualquier caso, hay muchas otras industrias que deberían imitarnos.
