KNIGHT OF CUPS (2016) Movie Trailer 2 & Poster: Christian Bale Searches For Meaning

Knight Of Cups Movie Poster & Trailer 2

Knight Of Cups Movie Trailer 2. Terrence Malick‘s Knight of Cups (2016) movie trailer 2 stars Christian BaleNatalie Portman and Cate BlanchettKnight of Cups‘ plot synopsis: “A screenwriter living in LA tries to make sense of the strange events occurring around him.”

To be honest, I barely notice a single difference between the first trailer we posted last year (check it out here) and the one that arrived this morning. Of course, it’s been a year, so I could be mistaken, and the differences are stark – but I don’t think so. Whatever the difference may be – this is an exciting project. I’ve written about Christian Bale and his magnetic cinematic presence before, and I’m over the moon at his future prospects, as he’s finally left the Batman films behind and can focus on more intimate, character-oriented films again – his strong-suit (not the Batsuit).

Terrence Malick is, of course, a godsend to the medium of film. His shooting process may frustrate his DPs and cast, alike, but for us moviegoers and lovers of visual splendor, the ends justify the mean. This is, once again, a trailer that enraptures me and manipulates my emotions so thoroughly that sometimes I think it might be best to just leave it at that – and not see the actual film. This is, of course, absolute nonsense, more so because Malick’s films are usually just as beautiful a visual poem as the trailers are.

Yes, this could be parodied easily – a Malick trailer with a voiceover, whispered, characters that scream without sound, running along the beach, experimental angles and shots – but I like Malick’s art, and I can’t wait to see what’s in store for us here. And, perhaps most strikingly for me – its fucking great to see Christian Bale portray someone other than Batman, or Moses, or John Connor.

Take a look at the movie poster before checking out the trailer below, and let me know what you think!

According to Slashfilm, “The film was met with a mixed response at Berlinale this year, but Knight of Cups wouldn’t be a Terrence Malick picture if it wasn’t divisive. Knight of Cups seems like a refreshing and slight change of pace for the director. His last effort, To the Wonder, was a minor disappointment, missing the emotion of his other work.”

Knight of Cups also stars Teresa PalmerWes BentleyNick OffermanJason Clarke and Antonio Banderas.
