Check Out Midnight Marauder's Fantastic 'Knight of Cups' Poster Art
For many years we've been featuring outstanding poster art and pop art by movie fans of all kinds. One of our favorite artists goes by the moniker "Midnight Marauder", and we've been writing about him since 2012 (see his Alien posters). The film industry has slowly started to utilize more and more artistic designs into their official marketing, thanks to the influence of Mondo and Drafthouse Films. Marauder was hired to design the first teaser poster for Terrence Malick's new film Knight of Cups, which just premiered at the Berlin Film Festival. I loved the film and reviewed it over the weekend, but also want to highlight his poster.
In addition, Deadline reports Broad Green just struck a deal to distribute Knight of Cups and Terrence Malick's next untitled film as well. The deal was made just before the premiere of the Christian Bale and Natalie Portman starring film at Berlinale. As for the forthcoming untitled Malick film, that one is supposed to star Natalie Portman, Michael Fassbender, Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mara and Benicio Del Toro, but we have no indication of when we might see either title hit theaters yet. Stay tuned for updates on both films.
A screenwriter living in LA tries to make sense of the strange events occurring around him. Knight of Cups is the latest film written & directed by critically acclaimed American filmmaker Terrence Malick, of the must see films Badlands, Days of Heaven, The Thin Red Line, The New World, The Tree of Life and To the Wonder previously. Aside from Bale, Blanchett & Portman, the cast includes: Brian Dennehy, Antonio Banderas, Freida Pinto, Wes Bentley, Isabel Lucas, Teresa Palmer, Imogen Poots, Armin Mueller-Stahl and the voice of Ben Kingsley. Malick's Knight of Cups premieres at the 2015 Berlin Film Festival in February before opening in theaters sometime in 2015 (no date is set just yet). See the first trailer + read our review.
