Showing some love to her hometown fans, Cate Blanchett showed up in Sydney, Australia on Monday (June 9) to unveil her new flick “Hot to Train Your Dragon 2.”

The “Curious Case of Benjamin Button” babe attracted plenty of attention in her snazzy black dress with multicolored bead embellishments across the front.

In a recent interview, Ms. Blanchett confessed that while she loves being part of the franchise, she didn’t know much about “Dragon” prior to her involvement.

“I came to the ‘How To Train Your Dragon’ party late, but my children absolutely loved the first film and so did I. This is much better than the first, there's much more action and getting to kick some dragon butt. It was a three-year process working with the animators and it was such a pleasure. I'm really proud of it.”
