Between all the post-Oscars discussion and all the superhero movie hype, it can be easy to forget about some of the smaller, quieter films headed our way in the coming weeks. Like Knight of Cups, Terrence Malick‘s latest tone poem featuring an all-star cast and tons of great scenery. Only this time, Malick turns his eye away from the country and toward the big city. Oh, and he gets an assist by Diplo, who provides the music for the latest Knight of Cups trailer.
Christian Bale stars as a successful Hollywood screenwriter (Christian Bale) looks at all the glitzy parties and beautiful women in his life and despairs at the meaninglessness of it all. Natalie Portman, Cate Blanchett, and Wes Bentley play a few of the key figures who flit in and out of his life. Watch the new Knight of Cups trailer after the jump. Read More »

Even though we’re seeing more films from Terrence Malick (Badlands) these days, he still likes to take his sweet time with each project. We have no clue when exactly we’ll see his untitled Austin-set picture, which he shot footage for all the way back in 2011. But we Malick fans are in luck, because we’ll have something to tide us over in the meantime: Knight of Cups opens in theaters in less than two months.
After the jump, see new Knight of Cups footage and read a new synopsis.

Terrence Malick‘s films are often quite patient in their pacing. They aren’t exactly high-energy, unless you find excitement in staring off into the distance for long periods of time, caressing a lover’s hand or hair, or talking about what it all means to be alive. Malick’s movies are invigorating in their own way, as tone poems. However, his latest film, Knight of Cups, looks quite enthralling, in a more conventional sense.
Watch the Knight of Cups trailer after the jump.

Terrence Malick‘s new film Knight of Cups, starring Christian Bale, Natalie Portman, Cate Blanchett, and Antonio Banderas, premiered last night in Berlin, and as you might expect from a new Malick movie, reactions are fairly divided.
That didn’t stop distributors from showing interest, however, and Broad Green Pictures — the relatively new outfit backed by hedge fund manager Gabriel Hammond and his younger brother Daniel Hammond — picked up US rights to both Knight of Cups and the currently untitled Austin-set film which will be Malick’s next release. Along with that news comes a lovely new international poster for Knight of Cups and a bevy of reviews covering the spectrum of opinion on the movie. Check it all out after the break. Read More »
For years — since before the release of The Tree of Life — we’ve heard about Terrence Malick‘s planned documentary film Voyage of Time, to be released in full IMAX format. But most of what we’ve heard about the film is that it is coming eventually, with little in the way of actual specifics. We know Brad Pitt narrates the film, and that it will explore the full span of time, and that’s about it. Now the Malick IMAX documentary Voyage of Time has been formally announced, and in fact there are two official versions, one for IMAX distribution, and one for regular theaters. More details are below. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
The Terrence Malick film Knight of Cups was announced back in 2011, just months after the premiere of The Tree of Life, which at the time was his first film in six years. It has taken a few years for the film to arrive; he released To the Wonder in the meantime, and has also been working on a movie originally called Lawless, and which is currently untitled. Now the Knight of Cups premiere is now set to take place at the Berlin Film Festival in February 2015. Also premiering at the festival will be Kenneth Branagh’s Cinderella. Read More »
Terrence Malick movies mean so much to so many different people. Films such as The Tree of Life are packed with interesting images and ideas; it’s almost impossible to come up with a singular reading, or one feeling to take away from the experience. Which is why he’s so beloved (and sometimes hated) by various audiences.
If you think watching Malick’s films is difficult, imagine trying to sell them. Even with stars such as Brad Pitt and Sean Penn, Fox Searchlight surely had some difficulty representing The Tree of Life. The poster they eventually settled on was gorgeous and evocative, and it was the result of lots of work. A company called Prologue did the work on the film and now 90 different concepts they came up with have arrived online.
They’re a great visual representation of the complexity of Malick’s work. Read More »
