Reclusive writer/director Terrence Malik shot his latest film, Knight of Cups back-to-back in 2012 with To the Wonder and has been working on it since then. Now it is finally ready for release to the general public after a screening earlier this year at the Berlin International Film Festival and we’ve got your first look below.
The film stars Christian Bale (The Dark Knight Rises) as Rick, a screenwriter early in his career who lives an empty life. The film seems to examine the hidden debauchery of the Hollywood lifestyle – which does little to bring any meaning to Rick’s life outside of providing an escape from drama and heartache. Cate Blanchett and Natalie Portman star as “Nancy” and “Elizabeth,” respectively – perhaps two women Rick is in relationships with. The rest of cast list is quite impressive including Sir Ben Kingsley, Imogen Poots, Nick Offerman, Antonio Banderas, Teresa Palmer and Frieda Pinto just to name a few.
Knight of Cups is in theaters on March 4, 2016
