First Look: Fashionista Cate Blanchett in Woody Allen’s ‘Blue Jasmine’

First Look: Fashionista Cate Blanchett in Woody Allen's 'Blue Jasmine'

The first released image from Woody Allen’s latest annual film, “Blue Jasmine,” shows fashionable Manhattan housewife Cate Blanchett looking a tad malaise-stricken. Per usual the upscale comedy boasts a sprawling ensemble cast, including returning “To Rome with Love” star Alec Baldwin as a man in crisis, Sally Hawkins, Peter Sarsgaard, Andrew Dice Clay, Bobby Cannavale, Michael Stuhlbarg and Louis C.K.

For the first time in years, Allen shot the film on stateside locations (including San Francisco and Allen’s native New York), as opposed to the director’s recent preference for romantic European locales (“To Rome with Love,” “Match Point,” “Vicky Christina Barcelona”). 

“Blue Jasmine” is set to hit New York and LA theaters July 26 via Sony Pictures Classics, in its sixth collaboration with Allen, including the auteur’s best-performing film to date, Oscar-nominated “Midnight in Paris.”
