After much anticipation, hype, and expectation, Terrence Malick's long awaited "Knight Of Cups" finally debuted in February at the Berlin International Film Festival (read our review) and then...well, that was about it. We haven't really heard much about the film since. But a batch of new images have arrived featuring the trio of lead stars in the movie. Christian Bale, Natalie Portman, and Cate Blanchett are the big names in the picture that also features appearances by a slew of others including Imogen Poots, Freida Pinto, Teresa Palmer, Brian Dennehy, Wes Bentley, and far too many more to mention here (for example, Jason Clarke pops up but doesn't even have a line of dialogue), and follows Rick, a Hollywood writer having an existential crisis, while grappling with complicated relationships with his father and the women in his life.
