Forget Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice! We know which March release you’re all actually excited about: Terrence Malick‘s Knight of Cups. Some of you may not be pumped for the latest Malick joint after To the Wonder and The Tree of Life, but I am, hence Knight of Cups making my most-anticipated list for 2016. The film is finally coming out and an excellent poster has just been released. Check it out below.
Broad Green Pictures are distributing Malick’s next two pictures, including Knight of Cups and the Austin-set Weightless. His latest film, which stars Christian Bale, was met with a polarizing response at the Berlin Film Festival, but that’s pretty much par for the course with Malick’s pictures these days.
Thus far, the marketing has been excellent for Knight of Cups. Brief clips from the film have been released here and there, but it’s the posters that have stood out the most. This new one-sheet is easily one of the best for any Malick film. The image is striking, of course, and the simple tagline “a quest” is enough to get me excited for the latest Malick picture.

Here’s the official synopsis for Knight of Cups:
Knight of Cups follows writer Rick (Christian Bale, The Fighter, American Hustle) on an odyssey through the playgrounds of Los Angeles and Las Vegas as he undertakes a search for love and self. Even as he moves through a desire-laden landscape of mansions, resorts, beaches and clubs, Rick grapples over complicated relationships with his brother (Wes Bentley) and father (Brian Dennehy). His quest to break the spell of his disenchantment takes him on a series of adventures with six alluring women: rebellious Della (Imogen Poots); his physician ex-wife, Nancy (Cate Blanchett); a serene model Helen (Freida Pinto); a woman he wronged in the past Elizabeth (Natalie Portman); a spirited, playful stripper Karen (Teresa Palmer); and an innocent Isabel (Isabel Lucas), who helps him see a way forward.
Rick moves in a daze through a strange and overwhelming dreamscape — but can he wake up to the beauty, humanity and rhythms of life around him? The deeper he searches, the more the journey becomes his destination.
The 7th film from director Terrence Malick (The Thin Red Line, Tree of Life), Knight of Cups (the title refers to the Tarot card depicting a romantic adventurer guided by his emotions) offers both a vision of modern life and an intensely personal experience of memory, family, and love. Knight of Cups is produced by Nicolas Gonda, Sarah Green and Ken Kao. Prominent crew includes cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki (Gravity, Birdman), production designer Jack Fisk, costume designer Jacqueline West, and composer Hanan Townshend (To The Wonder). The film’s ensemble cast also includes Antonio Banderas, Cherry Jones and Armin Mueller-Stahl.
Knight of Cups opens in theaters March 4th.Cool Posts From Around the Web:
