Terrence Malick movies remain a very rare treat, and even though he's been more prolific of late, he's still only directed six films since 1973. Well, seven with Knight Of Cups factored in, and he's already in post production on his eighth.
So, what is Knight Of Cups? That's not a bad question, and it's a bit like asking what The Tree Of Life was, and trying to get that down to a line or two. Fortunately, someone else has done the hard work for us here, as an official synopsis for the movie has landed.
Once there was a young prince whose father, the king of the East, sent him down into Egypt to find a pearl. But when the prince arrived, the people poured him a cup. »
A brand-new plot synopsis for the film reads: "Once there was a young prince whose father, the king of the East, sent him down into Egypt to find a pearl. But when the prince arrived, the people poured him a cup.
"Drinking it, he forgot he was the son of a king, forgot about the pearl and fell into a deep sleep. Rick's father used to read this story to him as a boy. The road to the East stretches out before him. Will he set forth?"
Coincing with the announcement that Knight of Cups will receive its world premiere in competition at the Berlin Film Festival in February, FilmNation Entertainment has now released the first trailer for the film, which has been directed by acclaimed filmmaker Terrence Malick. Check it out right here…

This is heaven for Malick fans. Set to bow in competition at the 65th Berlin International Film Festival, his long-awaited "Knight of Cups" starring Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett and Natalie Portman has its first trailer—and it's a dark, crazy ride through Malick-land. This tale of celebrity excess is shot by "Tree of Life," "Gravity" and "Birdman" Dp Emmanuel Lubezki, with gorgeous and surreal images that recall Malick's "Tree" and "To the Wonder." "Knight of Cups" will be Malick's first trip to Berlin since 1999, when he won the Golden Bear for his WWII epic "The Thin Red Line." The eclectic cast of "Knight of Cups" may or may not also include Jason Clarke, Wes Bentley, Nick Offerman and Joel Kinnaman, as Malick is notorious from slashing swaths from his films. (Rachel Weisz, Michael Sheen and Amanda Peet were all cut entirely from his divisive 2012 romance "To the »

Jude Law may soon be reuniting with director Guy Ritchie, but it’s not for another Sherlock Holmes film. The actor is in talks to play the villain in Ritchie’s ambitious King Arthur take Knights of the Round Table, which has Charlie Hunnam set to star as Arthur in a potential franchise that is planned to go six films deep. Warner Bros. has been trying to get a King Arthur movie off the ground for a long time now and they previously came close with director David Dobkin (The Judge) who had Joel Kinnaman and Kit Harington set to star before budget issues forced WB to pull the plug. The project came back together with Ritchie, who brought his own take on the King Arthur tale to table. And now a key piece of the puzzle is close to coming together with Law circling the antagonist role. Hit the jump for more, »

Amongst the plethora of television thrillers, mysteries and detective stories, the Nordic Noir genre is undoubtedly the one of the moment. As people turn away from your standard city cop thriller, a bleak Scandinavian vibe is satisfying the urges and they’re slowing down the pace in favour of character-led drama – where people actually have to work things out.
Originally a Danish series called Forbrydelsen, the Us version of The Killing, written and produced by Veena Sud, took all the good things and thankfully kept them (including the knitwear) in this equally exciting and absorbing television drama. Just as season four of the Emmy-nominated The Killing comes to Netflix, we’re excited to share the news that you can pick up seasons 1 to 3 on DVD and Blu-ray for the first time as one complete collection and also as single disc releases, with season 2 and 3 making their UK home entertainment debut this week. »

In the final season of The Killing, everything comes full circle and the past comes back to haunt Linden (Mireille Enos) who seemed to have finally escaped from the life of the homicide detective. Dragged back to the case that started her obsession, this is the one to make Linden question if her instincts were right, or was there a miscarriage of justice?
Moving away from politics, there is still a hint of police corruption in The Killing Season 3 pulling Linden back into being a homicide detective. When Ray Seward (Peter Sarsgaard) a murderer from her past is nearing his execution, Linde begins to question his guilt when bodies of young women are discovered bearing the same tell-tale marks of his victim. With Holder (Joel Kinnaman) by her side and James Skinner (Elias Koteas) her past partner investigating the murders, a whole new can of worms are opened up.

Next year’s full to bursting with potentially brilliant geek films, so to help, here’s our pick of 25 must-see movies out in 2015…
Compiling a list of next year's most exciting films is extremely difficult. What do you put in? What do you leave out? Those are some of the questions we've had to ask ourselves as we drew up the long-list of our most anticipated films of 2015. In an attempt to limit the number of sequels which can fill up a list such as this, we've left out something like Fast & Furious 7, even though we're fairly sure it'll be a lot of fun. With but two significant exceptions, we've excluded some of the films we were looking forward to this year that have been delayed until the next, such as Kingsman: The Secret Service and Frankenstein.
What we're left with, we hope, is a fairly broad selection of action and comedy, »

As unlikely as it may seem (or maybe not, when you consider the surprisingly high box office receipts), Gerard Butler and Aaron Eckhart’s White House takeover pic Olympus Has Fallen will be getting an equally ludicrous, action-packed sequel with the upcoming London Has Fallen. And despite Olympus helmer Antoine Fuqua and Charlie Countryman filmmaker Fredrik Bond both backing away from the project over its creative direction, Millenium Films isn’t giving up. Now, we’re hearing that Scandinavian director Babak Najafi is being eyed to take the reins.
Though he’s hardly a household name, Najafi has a solid resume and is best known for directing Joel Kinnaman in another sequel, Easy Money II: Hard to Kill. He has also helmed episodes of the action-packed Cinemax series Banshee and made his debut on the acclaimed drama Sebbe. According to Deadline, Najafi is the favorite to helm London Has Fallen, »

To mark the release of Danish crime thriller The Keeper of Lost Causes, we had the pleasure of speaking to the film’s leading star, Nikolaj Lie Kaas. He discussed with us his own appreciation for the aforementioned genre, and how pleased he is to currently be part of a flourishing, Danish film industry. He also tells us why he loves his craft, and about his forthcoming endeavour, the star-studded drama Child 44.
Of course The Keeper of Lost Causes is based on a Jussi Adler-Olsen novel – was it one you were familiar with before signing up to the project?
No I hadn’t read anything by him before this, I came in to this by accident. But as I became connected to the project I read his books. Though there’s nothing wrong having your own image of how to portray someone, and when I saw the script there »

Guy Ritchie has finally decided on an actor to play King Arthur for his upcoming Warner Bros. film. Sons of Anarchy's Charlie Hunnam will tackle the legendary leader in what's rumored to be a six-film series. Looks like turning down that Fifty Shades of Grey role wasn't so bad after all huh?
Hunnam is in final negotiations for the role of King Arthur. There's also rumors that Idris Elba–who co-starred with Hunnam in his other Warner Bros. franchise, Guillermo Del Toro's Pacific Rim–is in talks to play Merlin. Elizabeth Olsen (Godzilla) is also being mentioned for the female lead.
It looks like this project is finally coming together for Ritchie. Warner Bros has tried a few »

Though Charlie Hunnam is about to ride off into the sunset with the final season of his FX series Sons of Anarchy this fall, the actor has emerged as director Guy Ritchie's top choice to play the title character in Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur. We reported last month that Idris Elba is playing Bedivere, the right-hand man of Arthur's father who teaches the young man how to fight and how to lead an army.
Charlie Hunnam is in final negotiations for the project, which will be the first in a series of six movies that we first reported on back in January. Joby Harold (Edge of Tomorrow) wrote the script for the first movie, which lays the groundwork for this epic six-movie franchise. No story details have been released thus far.
As Sons of Anarchy enters its seventh and final season, star Charlie Hunnam continues to look towards the big screen to put himself on the map as a leading actor in Hollywood. After being courted for the role of Christian Grey in 50 Shades of Grey, the Pacific Rim star is now being eyed to lead a very different project.
According to Deadline, Hunnam is Guy Ritchie’s top choice to play King Arthur in the Warner Bros. movie which is being developed by Joby Harold as a franchise which could be made up of as many as six movies. Harold penned the movie and Akiva Goldsman is set to produce. Hunnam meanwhile is in final negotiations for the role.

There's a “Pacific Rim” reunion on the horizon Charlie Hunnam is nearing a deal to play King Arthur alongside Idris Elba in Guy Ritchie's upcoming Warner Bros. movie “Knight of the Roundtable: King Arthur,” an individual familiar with project has told TheWrap. Elba is in talks to play a knight named Bedivere, who trains Arthur for battle as he learns his true destiny. Hunnam's casting would represent a major upgrade over “Game of Thrones” star Kit Harington, who was going to play Arthur opposite Joel Kinnaman's Lancelot in a medieval movie that David Dobkin nearly directed for Warner Bros. before the studio deemed. »
