"Good does not always triumph. Sometimes, the dark side overcomes what Lincoln called the better angels of our nature."

So said General Corman in Apocalypse Now. But what Corman should have said is, "Sometimes, the dark side overcomes what Lincoln called the better angels of our nature - assuming test audiences or studio executives will allow it to happen."

Downbeat endings are by no means out of the question in mainstream movies, but there have been times where filmmakers have, often at the last minute, had to go back and shoot a happier ending for one reason or another. For your delectation, »

Check out the official Us poster for Knight Of Cups.

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.

Opening on March 4, watch the trailer below.

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, »

Spiritual New Knight Of Cups Poster Flips Christian Bale’s World On Its Head

26 January 2016 9:23 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

For Terrence Malik’s latest experimental film, Knight of Cups, Christian Bale is set to play Rick, a man in possession of everything and yet nothing. One who constantly chases after the next big thing as a screenwriter, yet yearns for something to paper over the crippling emptiness in his life. It’s a intriguing paradox for a lead character, and one that is illustrated to wonderful effect in today’s new poster for the film.

Turning Rick’s world upside-down in every sense of the word, the one-sheet arrives by way of Fandango, and is stylized in the vein of a tarot card. While they’re often associated with spiritual readings and impending doom, tarot cards are said to be “powerful sources of information [that] come from within; the Tarot aids in coming in contact with one’s Higher Self.” At least, that’s according to How Stuff Works.

Watch: Christian Bale Begins a Terrence Malick-Sized Journey in New 'Knight of Cups' Footage

7 January 2016 11:24 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: Review: Terrence Malick's 'Knight of Cups' Pushes the Director's Style to Its Limits This new "Knight of Cups" footage featured on the film's Facebook page is only 15 seconds long, but it has nearly all of the auteur trademarks of Terrence Malick. From religious imagery to spiritual narration and an emotionally plagued, soul-searching protagonist (this time it's Christian Bale), the footage promises an introspective experience similar to the director's "The Tree of Life" and "To The Wonder."  The film's official synopsis reads: "'Knight of Cups' follows writer Rick (Bale) 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).
