Knight of Cups Trailer


Knight of Cups has its first trailer. The new movie from director Terrence Malick is a dreamlike meditation on… well, it’s hard to tell. Life and death. Sex and fame. Babies and oceans. It stars Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Natalie Portman, Brian Dennehy, Antonio Banderas, Freida Pinto, Wes Bentley, Isabel Lucas, Teresa Palmer and Imogen Poots. Watch the trailer below!

Bale stars as Rick, a man immersed in the excesses of Hollywood. But things get deeper than your typical exploration of the movie business and celebrity. According to a “synopsis” released with the official preview: Once there was a young prince whose father, the king of the East, sent him down into Egypt to find a pearl. But when the prince arrived, the people poured him a cup. Drinking it, he forgot he was the son of a king, forgot about the pearl and fell into a deep sleep. Rick’s father used to read this story to him as a boy. The road to the East stretches out before him. Will he set forth?”

There you have it. No U.S. release date for Knight of Cups has been announced. Check out the trailer below, and tell us what you think!
