Christian Bale Indulges In Fame And Excess In Latest Knight Of Cups Trailer

24 November 2015 2:20 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

“All those years, living the life of someone I didn’t even know,” mutters Christian Bale’s Rick in the poignant new trailer for Knight of Cups. Acting as Terrence Malick’s seventh directorial effort, the film charts the existential crisis experienced by Bale’s decorated screenwriter who, despite being surrounded by fame and excess, sleepwalks through life in search of a purpose.

Disorienting and visceral, the snippet for Malick’s latest can in many ways be seen as a reflection of the director’s own encounter with Hollywood, with the sombre voiceover and stirring music driving home the rapturous feeling experienced by Bale’s main lead. One thing’s certain: as this is the filmmaker’s first feature since To the Wonder almost four years ago – when Knight of Cups was shot back-to-back – we can readily expect his latest creative effort to draw the crowds.

In keeping with Malick’s M. »

Christian Bale Tries to Seduce Natalie Portman in This Sexy Trailer

24 November 2015 9:31 AM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Director Terrence Malick (To the Wonder, Tree of Life) is known for making polarizing works of art that feature his (always good-looking) actors in beautiful or interesting settings, and the elements for Knight of Cups are Christian Bale as Rick and an excessive Hollywood backdrop. From the trailer, we can tell that his character is probably on some sort of journey searching for self and love, which a couple of his potential love interests (Natalie Portman, Imogen Poots, Cate Blanchett) remark on during the dreamy but intense preview. Given Malick's penchant for nonlinear, experimental storytelling, this mysterious trailer may actually be pretty telling. The long-in-production Knight of Cups will premiere in theaters on March 4, and you can get your first look now. »

Momentum review – wooden thriller, Bourne too late

19 November 2015 1:15 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Morgan Freeman’s phoned-in bad guy is not the worst thing about this film, it’s the striving for a sequel not worth making

The curse of Bourne continues to linger over the lower echelons of the film industry with yet another attempt to replicate its success sputtering out of the gate. Olga Kurylenko, who worked well without many words as the nature-loving heroine in Terrence Malick’s To the Wonder, proves a wooden presence as a thief with a mysterious past who finds herself up against James Purefoy’s laughably hammy villain. Somehow, Morgan Freeman’s brief, phoned-in presence as a devious senator isn’t the worst thing on display here. No, that would be the oddly arrogant final scene, which leaves the plot hanging for a sequel that will hopefully never come. It’s too fast-paced to be a total bore, but remains creatively bereft.

Watch: Gorgeous Supercut Highlights The Beauty Of Magic Hour Filmmaking

27 October 2015 9:26 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Just what is the “magic hour,” exactly? According to producer Phillip Hobbs, it’s “that delightful time in the day when everyone is exhausted and the light is just perfect.” For those who aren’t hip to filmmaking jargon, it’s that golden moment that separates dusk from twilight – when the sky is tinged with poetic splashes of purple and pink and it seems as though anything is possible. Filmmakers understandably love the magic hour; cinematographers even more so. Hell, Terrence Malick has a magic hour shot in just about every one of his movies (his last outing as a director, “To The Wonder,” often felt like one endless magic hour montage). It’s a powerful cinematic tool when used properly, and for those who are eager to see it in action, this new supercut via Fandor highlights some of the silver screen’s most memorable magic hour moments.

10 August 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Deauville American Film Festival is set to pay homage to American star Keanu Reeves during its 41st edition which is set to take place Sept.4-14.

As part of the tribute, Deauville will host a retrospective of Reeves’s most popular movies.

“Forever Neo from ‘Matrix,’ Jonathan Harker in ‘Dracula’ or Le Chevalier Danceny in ‘Dangerous Liaisons,’ Keanu Reeves has demonstrated his ability to take on extremely varied roles during his long and impressive movie career. He has worked with directors such as Gus Van Sant, Francis Ford Coppola, Bernardo Bertolucci and more recently Richard Linklater,” the festival said.

Reeves, who will be present in Deauville, made his directorial debut on Chinese/U.S. co-production “Man of Tai Chi,” a martial arts drama inspired by the life of stuntman Tiger Chen that came out in 2013.

Terrence Malick and the Tao of the Sojourning Soul, Part 1: Spiritual Voices

3 August 2015 4:37 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Sometimes I imagine that it is 1983 and Terrence Malick is somewhere in Paris, living a quiet, normal life. As he walks to one of his favorite cafes, he catches a glimpse of Gilles Deleuzes’ Cinéma 1: L’image-mouvemont in a bookstore window. Naturally, he’s curious. In an intellectual era dominated by Theory, the only other book of philosophy that had taken up cinema as a way to do philosophy was The World Viewed, written by his friend and one time academic advisor Stanley Cavell. I imagine that Malick seeks out Deleuze, who is lecturing at the University of Paris VIII. Two years later, he buys a copy of Deleuze’s Cinéma 2: L’image-temps. Deleuze confirmed what Malick has long suspected, but either forgotten or was distracted from in the hedonistic atmosphere of 1970s L. A. chronicled by Peter Biskind in Easy Riders, Raging Bulls—cinema “thinks” philosophically. Other »

Terrence Malick’s Knight of Cups gets official Us release

24 July 2015 1:06 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After being bumped from its scheduled fall date later this year, Terrence Malick’s Knight of Cups has finally been given an official release for its Us bow of March 4th, 2016.

Malick’s first film since 2012’s To The Wonder, Knight of Cups stars Oscar winners Christian Bale (The Dark Knight), Cate Blanchett (Blue Jasmine) and Natalie Portman (Black Swan) and premiered at this year’s Berlin Film Festival. Broad Green Pictures are releasing the film.

Bale plays a “bewildered man in a life of Hollywood excess.” Antonio Banderas (Automata), Brian Dennehy (Romeo & Juliet), Jason Clarke (Terminator Genisys), Imogen Poots (She’s Funny That Way) and Joel Kinnaman (Suicide Squad) are set to co-star in the film, if they make the cut through Malick’s rigorous editing process.

Knight of Cups is released on March 6th, 2016.

Interview: Rachel McAdams Talks ‘Southpaw,’ Laughs On The ‘True Detective’ Set & Nic Pizzolatto’s Take On Her Character

23 July 2015 12:10 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While also assuming the most compelling draw — from casting to the just-aired fifth episode — on the second season of “True Detective,” actress Rachel McAdams forms the emotional bedrock of Antoine Fuqua’s newest film, the boxing drama “Southpaw.” A tale of a father trying to regain custody of his young daughter, it owes this to Jake Gyllenhaal and McAdams. Both play Bronx-bred orphans who grew up together, fell in love, and now operate as an efficient team — he as the boxing pro, she as the strategic brains behind the operation. Fair warning: a glance at the trailer is quick to spoil why McAdams isn’t around for long, but rest assured it’s a plot point that’s earned in the actual film. Regardless, you can catch plenty of McAdams elsewhere in one of her diverse projects over the past few years (“To The Wonder,” “A Most Wanted Man,” “Passion »

Christian Bale’s ‘Knight of Cups’ Gets March Release Date

23 July 2015 11:33 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Broad Green Pictures has set a March 4 date for the U.S. release of Terrence Malick’s fantasy drama “Knight of Cups” starring Christian Bale, opting to skip this year’s awards season.

Knight of Cups” premiered at the Berlin Film Festival in February.

Bale plays a bewildered man in a life of Hollywood excess. Natalie Portman, Cate Blanchett, Antonio Banderas and Brian Dennehy also star.

Nicolas Gonda, Sarah Green and Ken Kao are producing. Malick’s last film, “To the Wonder,” starred Ben Affleck and Olga Kurylenko and grossed less than $3 million worldwide. His 2011 film, “The Tree of Life,” took in more than $50 million worldwide.

Variety‘s Justin Chang called the film “flawed but fascinating” in his review at Berlin.

Year-old Broad Green, which specializes in adult-oriented dramas such as “99 Homes,” also set awards-season releases for two other titles — an Oct. 23 release date for suburban drama “I Smile Back, »

Terrence Malick's Next Films Hit In 2016

27 June 2015 11:29 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Debuting at the Berlin Film Festival earlier this year to mixed reviews, acclaimed filmmaker Terrence Malick's new film "Knight Of Cups" is looking like it won't be coming out until sometime in 2016.

Broad Green Pictures chief Gabriel Hammond tells Thompson On Hollywood that "we want to have the longest run possible not for money’s sake, but so we can get as many people to share the experience" which is why they've decided to release the picture in 2016, most likely in the Spring like Malick's last film "To the Wonder".

Then there's the question of Malick's other film, the ensemble drama set against the Austin music scene starring Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Natalie Portman, Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mara and Michael Fassbender.

The site says there were rumours the film would be call "Weightless" which is Not the case. It also sounds like the film will Not be coming out »

Terrence Malick’s ‘Knight Of Cups’ Won’t Arrive Until 2016, Austin Music Scene Drama Not Titled ‘Weightless’

27 June 2015 2:20 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It looks like the pattern of filmmaker Terrence Malick debuting a movie at a film festival and then waiting a year for a theatrical release will continue. In 2013, Malick premiered “To The Wonder” at the 2012 Venice Film Festival and then the Ben Affleck/Rachel McAdams/Olga Kurylenko,-starring movie didn’t surface until the following year in the spring of 2013. The same plan is being put into play for Malick’s upcoming film, “Knight Of Cups,” but instead of the nine-month delay between festival premiere and theatrical bow on ‘Wonder,’ we might be waiting over a year.

Cannes Film Review: ‘Love’

20 May 2015 11:15 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The cast holds nothing back in Gaspar Noe’s “Love,” but it’s the ever-provocative writer-director who exposes the most in his sexually explicit, semi-autobiographical Cannes scandal-in-the-making, a courageously personal account of an aspiring filmmaker torn between the mother of his child and the one that got away. The helmer of such transgressive pics as “Irreversible” and “Enter the Void,” Noe resolved to make a relationship movie that was honest about human sexuality, and though the stereoscopic 3D result thrusts plenty of the old bump-and-grind in audiences’ faces, it would be disingenuous to pretend that other directors haven’t gotten there first — and to more revealing effect. Still, you’ve gotta hand it to Noe for leaving no taboo unturned, and for putting so much of himself into a film that’s bound to leave titillation seekers resenting its creator during the long stretches of wallowing introspection between climaxes.

The Callow Way – Why Cannes Still Matters

18 May 2015 3:23 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week Neil Calloway looks at what winning the Palme d’Or can do to your box office…

So we are in the middle of the Cannes Film Festival, and it’s easy to dismiss it as a two-week publicity vehicle for beautiful actresses to get photographed next to middle-aged European film directors on the Croisette, or a time for oligarchs and their trophy wives to entertain fading Hollywood stars on their super yachts. However, the importance of the festival to the film industry cannot be understated.

Cannes is the biggest film industry event of the year; the Oscars comes close but that only lasts one night. It is, in fact, one of the biggest annual events of any kind. As William Goldman points out in Hype and Glory, his entertaining memoir of sitting on the juries for both Cannes and the Miss America Pageant, the World Cup and Olympics are bigger, »

Exclusive: Hear 3 Tracks From Composer Hanan Townshend's Score For 'Echoes Of War'

12 May 2015 12:09 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Hanan Townshend might be best known at the moment for his work with Terrence Malick. He contributed material to "The Tree Of Life," before being promoted to the main gig of scoring the director's "To The Wonder," his upcoming "Knight Of Cups," as well as the Malick-produced "The Better Angels." That certainly opened some doors for Townshend, who scored the upcoming wartime drama "Echoes Of War," and today we have exclusive preview of three tunes from the soundtrack.

'Birdman' cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki joins exclusive club with Oscar win

22 February 2015 7:29 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

By winning the Best Cinematography Oscar for a second year in a row, "Birdman" director of photography Emmanuel Lubezki has joined a truly elite club whose ranks haven't been breached in nearly two decades. Only four other cinematographers have won the prize in two consecutive years. The last time it happened was in 1994 and 1995, when John Toll won for Edward Zwick's "Legends of the Fall" and Mel Gibson's "Braveheart" respectively. Before that you have to go all the way back to the late '40s, when Winton Hoch won in 1948 (Victor Fleming's "Joan of Arc" with Ingrid Bergman) and 1949 (John Ford's western "She Wore a Yellow Ribbon"). Both victories came in the color category, as the Academy awarded prizes separately for black-and-white and color photography from 1939 to 1956. Leon Shamroy also won back-to-back color cinematography Oscars, for Henry King's 1944 Woodrow Wilson biopic "Wilson" and John M. Stahl »
