Get pumped because TR, a new film starring Cate Blanchett, will be released in 2022. Two-time Oscar winner and one of the most acclaimed actresses of her generation, Cate Blanchett is collaborating on TR with respected director Todd Field, who hasn’t created a film in 16 years. This all comes together to create a fascinating collaboration.
We’ve gathered all the information we know about T.R. in one place for your convenience because it’s expected to be a contender in the 2022 movie award races.
When is the TÁR release date?
On October 7, TR will be released in the US. TR is not anticipated to reach countries outside of the US, such as the UK, until January 2023.
T.R. is a part of the official 2022 Venice Film Festival schedule before it is released in theaters. The film will be shown in competition at the significant autumn festival, which runs from August 31 to September 10.
How does the TR plot work?
Todd Field’s original story, TR, is described as follows in the following Focus Features synopsis:
The focus of the movie, which is set in the global realm of classical music, is Lydia Tár, who is regarded as one of the greatest living composers and conductors as well as the first female chief conductor of a significant German orchestra.
In case you were curious, Lydia Tár is a made-up personality and not an actual composer.
Exists a T.R. trailer?
The first T.R. The teaser trailer is distinctive. Blanchett plays Lydia Tár, and for the majority of the video’s two minutes, all that is seen is her blowing a slow-motion puff of smoke while a voice-over describes the various types of plagues that affect people, including the ominous phrase “and whom the Gods would destroy, they first make mad with power.” The teaser closes with a shot of Blanchett’s persona ferociously conducting an ensemble. The trailer is below.
Except for the information at the end indicating the premiere date of TR, the US and foreign teaser trailers have been made available.
Another T.R. The teaser trailer showcases more of the film while also giving an extremely unsettling impression of the world of a professional conductor. You may see it for yourself below.
Who comprises the T.R. cast?
In T.R., Cate Blanchett takes the lead as the title character. T.R. is just one of the movies that Blanchett will star in during the year 2022, so she is still keeping herself busy. Additionally, she has been cast to play Sprezzatura in Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio and is listed as the narrator of the Netflix original film The School for Good and Evil. Don’t Look Up and Nightmare Alley is a couple of her most recent filmography credits. Blanchett has previously been nominated for seven Oscars and has won twice (Blue Jasmine, The Aviator). Is TR her next chance to win a nomination?
Along with Sophie Kauer, who is making her feature film debut with TR, the TR cast also features Mark Strong (The Kingsman, Zero Dark Thirty), Noémie Merlant (Portrait of a Lady on Fire, Paris, 13th District), Nina Hoss (Phoenix, Homeland), Julian Glover (Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Game of Thrones), Allan Corduner (Topsy-Turvy, Homeland), and Noémie
Who is Todd Field, the director of TR?
Many people may be excused for not knowing Todd Field very well because the writer-director has been unexpectedly inactive since his most recent film, Little Children, was released in 2006. Field’s one-two punch in 2001’s In the Bedroom and Little Children, however, cemented his position as a key figure in the indie film community.
Eight Oscars were nominated for those two films as a whole, including three for Field himself—two for writing the scripts and one for Best Picture. TR hopefully ushers in a period of Field’s work that is more reliable. The TV miniseries The Devil in the White City and Purity are two of the two TV projects he currently has scheduled.
