New ‘Knight of Cups’ Featurette Features New Footage

The first featurette has been released for Terrence Malick‘s highly anticipated Knight of Cups, ahead of the film’s release next week in Germany, followed by a November bow in France.

Starring Oscar winners Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett and Natalie Portman, the film premiered at this year’s Berlin Film Festival and will be released in the U.S. on March 4, 2016.

In addition to new footage from the film, the new behind-the-scenes video also features interviews with cast members including Wes Bentley, Isabel Lucas, Brian Dennehey, and Portman, who talk about working with Malick and their characters in Knight of Cups (although no Malick to be spotted).

Watch the featurette below.

Man, working with Terry must be fun. All those continuous shots are looking so beautiful.

International One-Sheet

Rick is a slave to the Hollywood system. He is addicted to success but simultaneously despairs at the emptiness of his life. He is at home in a world of illusions but seeks real life. Like the tarot card of the title, Rick is easily bored and needs outside stimulation. But the Knight of Cups is also an artist, a romantic and an adventurer.

In Terrence Malick’s seventh film a gliding camera once again accompanies a tormented hero on his search for meaning. Once again a voiceover is laid over images which also seek their own authenticity. And once again Malick seems to put the world out of joint. His symphonic flow of images contrasts cold, functional architecture with the ageless beauty of nature. Rick’s internal monologue coalesces with the voices of the women who cross his path, women who represent different principles in life: while one lives in the real world, the other embodies beauty and sensuality. Which path will Rick choose? In the city of angels and the desert that surrounds it, will he find his own way?
