Great news about Hanna! Keep going on
Hanna, not Hop, topped the tepid North American box office on both Monday and Tuesday (April 11 and 12), according to Box Office Mojo.
Before Rio arrives next weekend to heat up domestic box-office revenues, Hanna will likely stay on top, as adult-oriented movies tend to hold up better on weekdays than kiddie fare. Directed by Joe Wright, Hanna stars Cate Blanchett, Saoirse Ronan, and Eric Bana.
I was thinking…would you like to have a forum here at Cate Blanchett Fan where you could chat with other fans and meet people from all over the world?? Let me know what you think, in order to do it or not.
The fashion designer outfits the actress in the stylish thriller.
Designer Giorgio Armani is no stranger to the big screen.
His impeccably tailored styles have already appeared in American Gigolo, Ocean’s Thirteen and The Dark Knight – and now they can be seen on Oscar-winning actress Cate Blanchett in the new movie Hanna (Focus Features).
In the film from director Joe Wright (2005’s Pride and Prejudice and 2007’s Atonement), Blanchett plays dark intelligence operative Marissa Wiegler who has secret ties to a teenage girl (Saoirse Ronan) with the skills of an assassin and her ex-CIA father (Eric Bana). “Joe’s vision of Marissa as the Wicked Witch of the story meant that her colors would be red [for her hair] and green [in her attire],” says head costume designer Lucie Bates, who worked closely with Armani.
Armani turned out an elegant, army green pencil-skirt suit and a ladylike emerald-hued cashmere coat for Blanchett’s character.
“Working with Cate has always been a highlight for me,” says Armani, who often dresses the actress in one-of-a-kind Armani Privé gowns for the red carpet. “She embodies the perfect combination of consummate actor and world-class fashion icon.”
Lets see if you agree with this article. Don’y hesitate and post your thoughts
Whether she’s front-and-center as the star of a film or playing a juicy supporting part, Cate Blanchett is always fascinating to watch, with her astounding versatility and transfixing, chameleon-like features.
This week, Blanchett plays a villainous CIA operative on the hunt for a teenage killing machine in “Hanna.” The Australian actress works a Texas drawl that drips with menace, but she’s also quite adept at running in Prada heels. So we took on the daunting task of selecting five — and only five — of her best performances:
So nice news, Cate is such a sweetheart, acts like this make me admire her even more
Oscar-winner Cate Blanchett is urging Australian children to pick up a video camera and raise awareness for youth homelessness.
Blanchett was in Sydney on Wednesday to launch the The Oasis: Homeless Short Film Competition to coincide with Young Homelessness Matters Day.
The national competition is asking students to make a three-minute short film about homelessness.
Ms Blanchett says the competition will help young people become more aware of the struggles less fortunate children go through.
“Film and theatre and the visual arts I really strongly believe have an exceptional and unique capacity to spread important social issues and help produce change in our community,” she said.
“I’d like to encourage school students both primary and secondary to not only pick up a camera and participate in the competition but to use the education resource and to delve into the issues and make outstanding films.
First reviews from Hanna By Ashley Lindstrom I want to watch it so bad!
The most apt cocktail party description of Hanna might be The Bourne Identity meets Blue Velvet — but that makes it sound enticing, doesn’t it? Sixteen-year-old Hanna (Saoirse Ronan) is a towheaded Jason Bourne, Jr., the unwitting result of a government program intended to breed super-soldiers. Hanna’s CIA operative creator, Marissa Wiegler (Cate Blanchett), is a David Lynch villain crossbred with Bourne’s chilly CIA deputy Pamela Landy.
Reclusively, rustically raised in the snowy wilderness by her ostensible father, Erik (Eric Bana), Hanna is trained up to hunt, to fight, and to speak tens of languages. (How annoying it must be, never to get a good night’s rest, because your dad’s always planning a sneak attack.) All of this so that one day, when Hanna is ready, Erik can dig up a transmitter that will alert Wiegler as to their location. Wiegler, by the by, wants Hanna dead.
There’s no rhyme or reason to why they have this transmitter or why it must ever be turned on, but when Hanna does flip its switch, Wiegler is awakened with a start, and the global chase begins.
Tomorrow I’m going out of town for two days, I’m going to take with me my laptop, but I’m not sure if I will be able to get online or not, as I don’t know if the hotel where I’m staying has wireless conection- I just wanted to let you know.
On this site they say Cate is still reading the script for The Hobbit, we will keep our finger crosses to see a glimpse of her at the movies. Also you can see several pics from The Hobbit cast.
Cate Blanchett has admitted that she is yet to see a script for The Hobbit.
Blanchett plays ethereal character Galadriel in Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings prequel, but she is unsure how big her role is, or even what she’ll be doing.
The Australian star told Collider.com, “Obviously Galadriel is only a small part of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, but it was probably the best three weeks I ever had. I haven’t seen a script yet, so I don’t know what I’ll be doing. Obviously Galadriel doesn’t factor very strongly in The Hobbit. I think it’s in the middle of the year that it is happening.”
While most of the original Lord of the Rings cast will be returning for the 3-D epic, one star who won’t be back is Liv Tyler, who recently told Collider.com that, “I haven’t heard from anybody and that makes me kind of sad.”
Part one of The Hobbit is due for release on December 19th, 2012.
Cate Blanchett has joked she spent “24 hours a day” in her forensic scientist suit to prepare for her cameo in Hot Fuzz.
The Hollywood actress played police investigator Janine, who is the ex-girlfriend of Simon Pegg’s character Nicholas Angel, in the 2007 British comedy. Written by Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright, the movie tells the story of jealous colleagues who conspire to get a top London policeman transferred to a small town and paired with a witless new partner.
Cate had a cameo role in the film and wore a mask during her brief scene. The star has joked the shoot took “months” of planning.
“For Hot Fuzz, it was months and months of detailed preparation. I sat down with the creative team and had a huge input into the production design, and then I wore that white suit and mask for at least three or four weeks, for 24 hours a day to get the feel of what it is like to be a forensic scientist. It was exhausting,” she laughed to Collider.com. “I got my eyelashes tinted as well!”
The 41-year-old – who is best known for her roles in Elizabeth and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button – played the elf queen Galadriel in Peter Jackson’s acclaimed The Lord of the Rings trilogy. Cate thinks director Pete and his partner Fran Walsh are “gifts” to the film world for producing such great movies.
