The trailer hints the film will address themes of power and madness.

This is only Todd’s third film and his first since 2007’s Little Children. Despite limited production, Field’s films have been nominated for eight Oscars.

Meanwhile, viewers may be surprised at the way Cate transformed herself for the role.

Looking much older and without makeup, the star of The Lord of the Rings kicked off the preview by gazing out into space.

Wearing a green shirt, his long blonde hair messy, he looked tense and nervous.

As classical choral music rose on the soundtrack, white smoke emerged from Lydia’s mouth in slow motion, eventually covering her entire face.

A voiceover hints the film touches on the impact of the ‘global pandemic on our culture’.

‘There is another kind of calamity visiting us,’ the narrator continues.

‘Power, true power, requires camouflage… and if you want to wear this mask… you must stand before God and the public and obliterate yourself.’

The trailer ends with Cate’s character, Lydia, leading the full orchestra in dramatic fashion.

She starred alongside Mark Strong (Cruella) and Nina Hoss (Homeland).

It came after Cate received the Chaplin Award in New York in April.

The award, founded in 1972 and named after Charlie Chaplin, is given to recognize the careers and contributions of artists who have left their mark in the media.

A regular on the global award circuit, Blanchett has received major prizes from around the world, including two Oscars, three BAFTAs, three Screen Actors Guild Awards and the Order of Australia.
