New US Trailer for Malick's 'Knight of Cups' Starring Christian Bale
"No one cares about reality anymore." Broad Green Pictures has debuted another new trailer for Terrence Malick's Knight of Cups, his latest feature which premiered at the Berlinale Film Festival earlier this year. It's slated for release next March, and it's another mesmerizing Malick creation this time focusing on the excessive culture of Hollywood by following a screenwriter around. Christian Bale stars, along with quite an impressive cast including Cate Blanchett, Natalie Portman, Teresa Palmer, Imogen Poots and more. I wrote in my review from Berlinale that it's a "gorgeous, mesmerizing, pensive trip into exploring who we are and why we act the way we do." There's still a few months until this opens, but worth the wait.
Here's the new trailer (#2) for Terrence Malick's Knight of Cups, direct from YouTube:
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 premiered at the 2015 Berlin Film Festival in February this year, and will be opening in select US theaters March 4th, 2016. See the first trailer + read my review.

Man oh man, after watching Days of Heaven way back when it first came out I thought Malick could do no wrong. How wrong I was! I started getting a little taste of his over bearing pretensions with The Thin Red Line which I like; at least most of it. But now? The New World, The Tree of Life and now this pretentious whispering and heavy handed narration et al it's just laughable. He seems to me, at least, way in over his head with his discussions of life, the light (lol) etc. Like a third grader attempting to discuss philosophy he doesn't have a clue about. It's kinda bush league to me. Trite nonsense presented without any real experience of or possession of intelligence in the matters he's discussing. Of course, I'm a genius, so perhaps this silly, childish take on the nature of life as presented by Malick is way beneath my own observations and experiences. You think? (Note...in the form of a Disclaimer...of sorts): For those quick to offense and a tendency to take criticism of something you like a bit too personally, my post is stuffed full or irony and if not to be taken literally. Or seriously. Man, it's hard to have to explain one's self in order not to be misunderstood and therefore attacked viciously as happens a lot on this site. Oh poor me...so difficult indeed! The air is pretty thin 'up here', I admit! Cheers!

Really? Yea, I guess I heard that myself some time back. I've met the man. Liked him a lot. This was many years ago after Days of Heaven and before, way before, The Thin Red Line. Unfortunately, I still feel as I stated in my above comment. But, hey, thanks for the response and information. Peace.
