While Terrence Malick likes to take his time with films, there’s a chance we’ll be getting two 2015, as he shot a couple of movies back-to-back, the first of which, Knight Of Cups, will premiere at the Berlin Film Festival. And now we have a trailer for the film.
As you’d expect from the director of The Tree Of Life and To The Wonder, it’s not a typical movie, as it was shot with no script, allowing the cast to improvise to Malick’s direction. However as the trailer shows, it does look like something a little different, with more energy, modernity and than we’re used to seeing from the helmer.
There’s no real synopsis, but the great cast includes Christian Bale alongside Natalie Portman, Cate Blanchett, Jason Clarke, Joel Kinnaman, Joe Manganiello, Brian Dennehy, Antonio Banderas, Freida Pinto, Wes Bentley, Isabel Lucas, Teresa Palmer, Imogen Poots, Armin Mueller-Stahl and the voice of Ben Kingsley.
