One of the two films director Terence Malick shot back to back in 2012 (the other being an Ryan Gosling starring untitled project, once called Lawless) Knight of Cups will get it's debut next February at the Berlin Film Festival, and an absolutely beautiful, lyrical first trailer has debuted. Little is known about the films story, other than it seems to be exploring excess and fame through the experiences of Christian Bale's Rick, but the movie looks stunning thanks to cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki (Gravity, Children of Men, and Malick's own Tree of Life and To The Wonder). Mix that with a stellar cast, including Bale, Antonio Banderas, Natalie Portman, Brian Dennehy, and Cate Blanchett, and this is one movie to definitely keep an eye on. Knight of Cups is set for release sometime next year. »

Times were you were lucky to get a movie out of Terrence Malick, the maverick director’s maverick director. Helming Badlands and Days Of Heaven in the Seventies, he then disappeared off the map as a director, with his lush sense of the cinematic leaving a lasting memory. It was 1998 when he finally returned to make war epic The Thin Red Line, and it took till 2011’s The Tree Of Life for him to truly kick into gear, bringing us To The Wonder in quick succession.
These offerings were lauded and poo-pooed in equal measure, so it’ll be interesting to see the reaction to his latest, the oddly-titled Knight Of Cups. Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett and Natalie Portman star in this tale of Hollywood excess. Yep that’s right, another one. But under the lens of Malick this may be a twisted trip into Tinseltown you haven’t seen before… »

We’ve been waiting some time for Terrence Malick’s latest, Knight Of Cups, but compared to the pauses he used to take between films, a couple of years between To The Wonder and now is the blink of an eye. The trailer has now arrived for you to peruse and unpick. It’s very identifiable as a Malick piece: some stark, startling imagery, ruminations on Big Themes and actors being put through their paces. Here, our focus is Christian Bale, a man navigating through the gloss, glamour and gonzo world of Hollywood, but also experiencing its pitfalls.And the synopsis is typically obscure: 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 »
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, Freida Pinto, 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. Knight of Cups will debut at the Berlin Film Festival, but it doesn't yet have a release date, so get your first look now. »
Um, did Terrence Malick go off and channel David Cronenberg or Gaspar Noé or is the "Knight of Cups" trailer just an amazing bit of marking? We've been waiting a while for this one and, well, it sure as hell looks like it was worth the wait. The film was announced this morning as a 2015 Berlinale premiere, and a new synopsis has come along as well. To wit: "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?" Er, Ok. »

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?"
If you want to work arthouse movie fans into a frenzy, just tell them that you've given Terrence Malick a couple of GoPro's and told him he should use them in his next movie. Then sit back and watch said fans react to results.
So while not everyone is still on the Malick train, I can't help but be drawn in by the director who, of late, seems completely engrossed with contemplations, sometimes esoteric, of memory, family, relationships and how our upbringing affects the people we become (To the Wonder, Tree of Life (review)).
It hasn't been 10 years in the works but Knight of Cups has been under construction for years. The movie stars Christ [Continued ...] »
Terrence Malick is an enigma.
The infamously press-shy writer-director worked sporadically at best until very recently, taking years off between films. After The Tree of Life was released in 2011, Malick turned around and released To the Wonder before embarking on what seems to be two back-to-back films, with a largely overlapping cast in Knight of Cups and a yet-untitled film.
Of his two upcoming films, Knight of Cups is the one that audiences will get a look at first. Hot on the heels of the announcement that the film will premiere at the Berlin Film Festival in February, the trailer for the film has dropped online, offering the first glimpse at Christian Bale and co.
The trailer leaves a lot to the imagination as it doesn’t offer any concrete proof as to what the plot of the film is other than it’s a look at a man (played »

"See the palm trees? They tell you anything is possible." Wow. It's time to get our very first look at the new Terrence Malick film, two years after he delivered To the Wonder. Malick's Knight of Cups is his latest film about celebrities and excess starring Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett and Natalie Portman. This first trailer from FilmNation comes after the announcement that the film will premiere at Berlinale next year. The footage is everything you'd expect from Malick and pretty much a critic's wet dream, showing the excess of Hollywood, and all the craziness that comes with it - from love to parties to drugs and much more. This looks much better than To the Wonder, but I'm still not sure about it. "You gave me peace, joy, love..." Here's the first official trailer for Terrence Malick's Knight of Cups, direct from FilmNation's YouTube: The only plot description »

The reclusive Terrence Malick is currently in the most prolific and productive phase of his career, but also his most polarizing. The Tree of Life may be the best movie of this decade, and its spiritual successor To The Wonder may be one of the director’s worst. Or depending on who you talk to, that assessment might be the exact opposite. Regardless, Malick remains the most curiously intriguing American director alive, and hours after it was announced that his latest film would be among the premieres at the Berlin Film Festival in February, a trailer has arrived for his latest film, Knight of Cups.
Knight of Cups stars Christian Bale, Natalie Portman, Imogen Poots, Cate Blanchett and about a dozen other name actors who probably only appear in voiceover narration or background conversation to Emmanuel Lubezki’s (The Tree of Life, Gravity, Birdman) elliptical camera. This is a much darker trailer of surreal, »

Celebrated filmmaker Terrence Malick returns to cinemas sometime next year with his new drama Knight of Cups, which has just released the first trailer. The film will have its world premiere in competition at the 65th Berlin Film Festival in February, with a theatrical premiere slated to follow sometime in 2015. Christian Bale stars as Rick, although there isn't a whole lot we learn about his character in this first trailer.

If you’re a fan of Terrence Malick, today is a very good day. Earlier we learned that one of Malick’s films that he shot in 2012, Knight of Cups, is poised to debut at the Berlin Film Festival in February followed by a theatrical release later in 2015, and now the first Knight of Cups trailer has landed online. The poetic, lyrical nature of Malick is on full display here, but this looks to be a much more hypnotic and chaotic film than his subdued, Oklahoma-set To the Wonder. Christian Bale leads a stellar cast that includes Cate Blanchett, Natalie Portman, Antonio Banderas, and Brian Dennehy, and the Hollywood-set story marks a pretty major change of location for Malick, whose past two features have followed the lives of people living in the south/Midwest. And it goes without saying that Emmanuel Lubezki’s cinematography is simply spectacular. The slot for »

If you’ve thought over the past couple years that Terrence Malick has been too tied to a specifically contemplative tone and aesthetic, then Knight of Cups could be a partial antidote to feelings taken out of To the Wonder and The Tree of Life. When this film was announced earlier today as one of the Berlin […]

The Berlin Film Festival this morning announced that Terrence Malick’s Knight Of Cups would world premiere in competition there in February, offering up the most recent piece of official intel on the secrecy-shrouded film. A few short hours later, our cup just about runneth over with new information. FilmNation Entertainment has released the first trailer for the movie which stars Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett and Natalie Portman. (Watch it above).
We already knew the story dealt with temptations, celebrity, and excess. Now, we’ve gotten a look at Bale’s lead character, Rick, as he navigates those facets of the Hollywood fast-life, questioning who he’s become. We also have a somewhat cryptic synopsis to go with the fresh images: “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. »

And just like that, we have a new Terrence Malick film set to debut in 2015. The notoriously private director shot two films back-to-back in 2012, Knight of Cups and a currently untitled feature that was previously named Lawless, but given the fact that Malick spends years in the editing room, there was no telling when we’d see either of them. After rumors of a 2014 debut turned out to be false, we now have official confirmation on when at least one of them will be released, as the Berlin Film Festival announced its initial lineup today and Knight of Cups is on the roster. A number of actors shot roles for the film, but the Berlin description confirms that at least Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, and Natalie Portman made the final cut. More on Knight of Cups after the jump. Per The Playlist, Knight of Cups will be premiering in competition at the 2015 Berlin Film Festival, »

Director Terrence Malick is a fascinating character, who becomes more deeply intriguing with each passing year. This was a filmmaker whose initial films, "Badlands" and "Days of Heaven," heralded him as a bold new talent, capable of just about anything. After "Days of Heaven," he took twenty years off, before returning for the ethereal war movie "The Thin Red Line" (a masterpiece that had the misfortune of opening the same year as Steven Spielberg's much more accessible "Saving Private Ryan"). After the Oscar-nominated "Thin Red Line" he took off another ten + years, before coming back for "The Tree of Life," a movie he had been working on, intermittently, since 1978 (when the project was known as "Q"). Since "Tree of Life" he has barely slowed down - he shot and released autobiographical romantic drama "To the Wonder," and shot two films back-to-back in 2012, while continuously working on his IMAX documentary »

The Terrence Malick film Knight of Cups was announced back in 2011, just months after the premiere of The Tree of Life, which at the time was his first film in six years. It has taken a few years for the film to arrive; he released To the Wonder in the meantime, and has also […]

The first seven films for the 65th Berlin Film Festival Competition program have just been announced, slightly lifting a veil of mystery on at least one title. Included in the lineup is Terrence Malick’s Knight Of Cups, which will vie for prizes in its world premiere. Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett and Natalie Portman star. Malick has been notorious for the secrecy that shrouds his projects and little has been known about Knight Of Cups other than that it deals with temptations, celebrity, and excess. The Berlin announcement hasn’t provided any more intel, but watchers have pondered when the film would make its first festival appearance, and its inclusion in the Berlinale’s first competition titles has just added an extra dimension to the proceedings as news begins to trickle out of Germany. Malick has won in Berlin before, taking the Golden Bear for 1999’s The Thin Red Line. »
