Come May 22 that’s how filmgoers around the world will see the Hunter’s Hill working mum Cate Blanchett when the long-awaited fourth instalment of the Indiana Jones films, Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull, hits cinemas around the world.
This week the US magazine Vanity Fair published the first image, taken by Annie Liebowitz, of Blanchett dressed in character for the film.
The magazine says the story is set in 1957, and this time Dr Jones is up against cold-blooded, Cold War Russians led by Blanchett. As VF explains, Blanchett’s character, Agent Spalko, “looks like the toughest Soviet customer since Lotte Lenya’s Rosa Klebb took on Sean Connery in From Russia With Love.”
Blanchett spent three weeks in Hawaii six months ago to shoot her part for the film and has been gagged by the director, Steven Spielberg, from talking about the mega-budget production.
She was joined in Hawaii by her two sons, Roman and Dashiell, who she later said had immensely enjoyed the experience of watching her in action hero mode.
Besides she looks so hot, hot, ohhhh so hot.
