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, »

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.

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.

The most athletic hospitality duo on the Internet is set for an action-packed return. Marriott has released the trailer for Two Bellmen Two, an upcoming short film that will serve as a sequel to 2015’s Two Bellmen.
The first Two Bellmen film was one of the first productions we saw out of the Red Bull-esque Marriott Content Studio, which launched in 2014. It was born out of a partnership with creative collective Substance Over Hype and starred Hollywood stuntmen William Spencer and Caine Sinclair as a pair of Marriott hotel employees who will pull out all the stops--including jumps, flips, and intricately-choreographed fistfights--in order to best serve their guests. The film arrived in March 2015 and has since received more than five million views, many of them paid. Viewers who stuck around to watch the whole video were impressed by the high quality of its stuntwork and the charming personalities of its leads. »

Read More: Review: Terrence Malick's 'Knight of Cups' Pushes the Director's Style to Its Limits Terrence Malick's "Knight of Cups" is easily one of the year's most anticipated releases for a handful of reasons; one of which is that it marks the first collaboration between the filmmaker and Oscar winner Natalie Portman. The spiritual drama finds Christian Bale's tormented Hollywood writer on an introspective odyssey across Los Angeles and Las Vegas. His quest to break his spell of depression brings him into contact with six women played by Portman, Cate Blanchett, Imogen Poots, Freida Pinto, Isabel Lucas and Teresa Palmer. Portman plays a woman from Bale's past that he wronged, which suggests their encounter will be one of high drama during the film. "Knight of Cups" premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival last year and will finally be released in theaters on March 4, courtesy of Broad Green Pictures. »
