As classical choral music rises on the soundtrack, white smoke pours out of Lydia’s mouth in slow motion, eventually obscuring her entire face.

“There are other kinds of plague that visit us,” the narrator continues.

“Power, true power, requires camouflage…and if you want to wear that mask…you have to stand before God and the public and destroy yourself.”
The trailer ends with Cate’s character Lydia dramatically conducting a full orchestra.
She stars alongside Mark Strong (Cruella) and Nina Hoss (Homeland).
It comes after Cate received the Chaplin Award in New York in April.
Founded in 1972 and named after Charlie Chaplin, the award recognizes the careers and contributions of artists who have left their mark on the environment.
Blanchett is part of the global awards circuit and has received major awards around the world, including two Oscars, three BAFTAs, three Screen Actors Guild Awards and an Order of Australia.
