New poster for Terrence Malick’s Knight of Cups featuring Christian Bale

27 January 2016 8:20 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A new poster has arrived online for acclaimed director Terrence Malick’s upcoming film Knight of Cups featuring Christian Bale; take a look below…

See Also: The latest trailer for Knight of Cups

Rick (Bale) is a slave to the Hollywood system. He is addicted to success but simultaneously despairs at the emptiness of his life. He is at home in a world of illusions but seeks real life. Like the tarot card of the title, Rick is easily bored and needs outside stimulation. But the Knight of Cups is also an artist, a romantic and an adventurer.

In Terrence Malick’s seventh film a gliding camera once again accompanies a tormented hero on his search for meaning. Once again a voiceover is laid over images which also seek their own authenticity. And once again Malick seems to put the world out of joint. His symphonic flow of images contrasts cold, »

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.

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.

American Horror Story Hotel episode 12 review: Be Our Guest

American Horror Story: Hotel concludes with a fitting ending that looks as gorgeous as ever, even if it won't be to everyone's tastes...

This review contains spoilers.

5.12 Be Our Guest

American Horror Story has been a spectacular showcase for female characters and the actors playing those roles. Jessica Lange was a revelation. Lily Rabe stole season two. Season three was an ensemble of female characters. Season four's most affecting parts were concerning the women of the Freak Show. And this season, the female character that deserves the most attention and praise just happens to be played by a man. There's glamour and grandeur, acid wit and tender compassion... Liz Taylor is possibly the best example of what American Horror Story can create for a female character, but it took an actor with the fearless skill of Denis O'Hare to pull it off, with a little help from the wonderful, »

‘American Horror Story: Hotel’ Finale Recap: Liz Shines in Emotional ‘Be Our Guest’

13 January 2016 9:05 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler alert: Do not read on unless you’ve seen episode 12 of “American Horror Story: Hotel,” titled “Be Our Guest.”

American Horror Story” brings many words to mind: “violence,” “sex,” etc. “Emotional” is not usually one of those, but the “Hotel” finale is just that, thanks in large part to Denis O’Hare’s standout performance as Liz Taylor that should garner some Emmy attention. For arguably the darkest season of “Ahs” to cap off with a happy ending is hardly expected, but it’s welcomed, even as some of the most horrible characters are given warm sendoffs.

The episode starts with Liz getting her throat slashed, but her narration, which hangs above the entire episode, lets us know that we’re not necessarily seeing some terrible end. But to back up quite a bit, Liz and Iris (Kathy Bates) have renovated the Hotel Cortez. Everything looks great: The pair »

The film opens in cinemas on March 4.

American Horror Story Hotel episode 11 review: Battle Royale

8 January 2016 12:30 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

facebook

twitter

google+

American Horror Story's shared universe aspect comes into its own this week with the fun return of a Coven character...

This review contains spoilers.

1.11 Battle Royale

It took Ryan Murphy five seasons and a return to a familiar stomping ground to bring American Horror Story full circle. The recycling of Pepper last season was a nice touch, and the freak show or the asylum was a common destination for unfortunate microcephalics back in the dark days, so to have the character move from one to the other makes sense. However, there wasn't a lot of modern crossing-over, aside from using the same actors. That's changed with Hotel. Whether it's the La location or the modern setting, old familiar faces have been popping up (and usually dying horribly) within the confines of the Hotel Cortez.

TV Review: American Horror Story: Hotel Episode 11: “Battle Royale”

7 January 2016 9:17 PM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Crossovers are nothing new to the world of Ahs as Freakshow had its connections to Asylum and early on Hotel, we had a small Easter egg for the diehard fans tied to Murder House. What I didn’t expect was the return of Queenie, my favorite character from Coven, beautifully played by Gabourey Sidibe. She is the latest guest at the hotel, mainly in town to be a guest on The Price Is Right, taking a slight vacation from New Orleans. Liz Taylor (Denis o’Hare) instantly recognizes her from CNN as our favorite witches from season three have made a name for themselves and their school for the gifted. Iris (Kathy Bates) has a look of concern, not sure why as a witch might be just what they need to kill off the Countess (Lady Gaga) as she managed to drag her damaged body away from near death.

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

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.

Disney’s 2016 Slate: 13 Titles Include ‘Alice’ Sequel, ‘Star Wars’ Spinoff

5 January 2016 6:23 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Disney scooped up giant hunks of the world’s movie audience in 2015, concluding the year with the record-busting “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” The studio’s Disney’s complete movie calendar for 2016, released with synopses and artwork Tuesday, is highlighted by “Star Wars” spinoff “Rogue One,” along with potential powerhouses from its Pixar and Marvel subsidiaries.

“Rogue One” is a stand-alone in the Star Wars universe, depicting events prior to “Star Wars: A New Hope.” The Christmas-season film tells the story of resistance fighters out to steal plans to the malevolent Death Star.

The 13-film Disney list includes blockbusters-in-waiting like “Rogue One” and Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War,” but also lesser known offerings, such as “The Finest Hours” and a remake of a much-loved piece from the studio’s library in “Jungle Book,” the Jon Favreau retelling of the Rudyard Kipling story, employing an amalgamation of live action with animated elements. »
