Cate Blanchett Does a Disappearing Act in ‘Where’d You Go, Bernadette?’ First Trailer (Video)

Richard Linklater directs film based on novel by Maria Semple

Poof! Cate Blanchett vanishes into thin air in the first trailer for “Where’d You Go, Bernadette?” And this family story is so heartwarming, you might just die of cuteness.

“Well, I want to die of cuteness. It’s my favorite thing to die of cuteness,” Blanchett says with a pout in the trailer.

Richard Linklater directs the film about a Seattle woman who has it all, including a loving husband and a brilliant daughter, but when she unexpectedly disappears, her family sets off on an exciting adventure to solve the mystery of where she might have gone.

Linklater wrote the screenplay, his follow-up to “Last Flag Flying,” with Holly Gent and Vince Palmo based on Maria Semple’s “runaway” best-selling novel of the same name, originally released in 2012 and acquired by Annapurna from Color Force in 2013.

Co-starring in the film opposite Blanchett’s title character are Billy Crudup as her husband, Kristen Wiig, Emma Nelson as her daughter, James Urbaniak, Judy Greer, Troian Bellisario, Zoe Chao and Laurence Fishburne.

Annapurna is releasing the film in theaters on March 22, 2019. What else is there to expect from this movie? Well, we’ll let Bernadette put it this way:

“Something unexpected has come up. There’s much more explanation coming, but I have this one shot, and just thinking about it has my heart racing,” Blanchett says.
