Malick's Tree of Life Officially Hitting Theaters in November
We've been bringing you release updates on Terrence Malick's The Tree of Life over the last year because that's all we've got on it. There are some vague plot details involving Brad Pitt and a story which "centers around a family with three boys in the 1950s. The eldest son witnesses the loss of innocence." But it's cryptic and no one really knows much about it because Malick is so secretive, but it looks like we now know when we'll all be able to experience Malick's newest film in all of its glory on the big screen. Apparition pres Bob Berny told Anne Thompson (via The Playlist) that Tree of Life "is definitely set for release in November."
As for the claim from January of this year that The Tree of Life might be premiering for the very first time at the Cannes Film Festival in May, it was rumored a little while back that it might not make that premiere and will hit later on. However, Berney says a November release "doesn't mean it won't be ready for Cannes," but it sounds like they don't expect to make a big splash there because they're unsure if Malick will be done by then. At least we know it'll be ready by November and it could hit some of the later festivals like Toronto even if it doesn't show up at Cannes. As we've already been doing for the last year, we'll keep you updated.
