To the Wonder Featurette

"We go where instincts take us." Time for a look at the inner workings of Terrence Malick. Our friends at The Film Stage have somehow stumbled across a 3-part series of video featurettes called "The Making of To the Wonder". It's beautiful, behind-the-scenes featurettes about the making of the new Malick film out this spring, To the Wonder, starring Ben Affleck, Olga Kurylenko, Rachel McAdams and Javier Bardem. The film is a sweeping Midwest love story, and this covers everything from casting to their lack of a script (yep!). It also features producers Sarah Green and Nicolas Gonda, all the actors, but not Terry, unfortunately. Still, this is a remarkably rare glimpse onto Malick's sets, and a fascinating must watch video.

Watch the three featurettes for Terrence Malick's To the Wonder, found via The Film Stage:

Note: two additional videos as part of this were released in the last few days, we've added them below.

If you haven't seen the first official trailer for Terrence Malick's To the Wonder yet, be sure to watch it here.

Rachel McAdams, Ben Affleck, Javier Bardem and Olga Kurylenko star in this new film from Terrence Malick, about a man who reconnects with a woman from his hometown after his marriage to a European woman falls apart. After visiting Mont Saint-Michel, Marina and Neil come to Oklahoma, where problems arise. Marina meets a priest and fellow exile, who is struggling with his vocation, while Neil renews his ties with a childhood friend, Jane. To the Wonder is directed by reclusive iconic filmmaker Terrence Malick, of Badlands, Days of Heaven, The Thin Red Line, The New World and The Tree of Life. This premiered at the Toronto Film Festival, and will finally be released by Magnolia Pictures on April 12th, 2013 coming soon.
