The latest Terrence Malick film is always a big event in the movie world, and now comes the trailer for what looks to be his best film so far, Knight of Cups.
After twenty years away, Malick returned in 1998 with the stunning war movie, The Thin Red Line, and then took another seven years out before bringing fans The New World. Six year later came the excellent Tree of Life, followed by To The Wonder a year later. Knight of Cups comes three years after Wonder, so its safe to say that Malick has certainly found his passion for filmmaking, and I am very happy to see him releasing film so frequently.
The first trailer for Knight of Cups has now been released, and it is beautiful and intense stuff, with Christian Bale yet again on form. Check out the stunning trailer below.
Knight of Cups is written and directed by Terrence Malick, and the cast includes Cate Blanchett, Natalie Portman, Antonio Banderas, Brian Dennehy, Isabel Lucas, Imogen Poots, Wes Bentley, Freida Pinto, Teresa Palmer, Armin Mueller-Stahl, and the voice of Ben Kingsley.
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 (Christian Bale) father used to read this story to him as a boy. The road to the East stretches out before him. Will he set forth?
The film will be released next year.
