Christian Bale and Natalie Portman stroll the beach in the first official image from Knight of Cups
As much as I wanted to, I didn’t even get a chance to see Terrence Malick’s TO THE WONDER in theaters. I’m not sure it ever came to my city and if it did, it came and went without a thud. Apparently, no one else saw it either since the film hasn’t made anything at the box office and is already slated to hit Blu-ray this summer. But I think we all know Terrence Malick couldn’t care any less what critics or fans think of his films and so he’s hard at work on his next effort, KNIGHT OF CUPS. The above, official image should be familiar to everyone that has been paying attention, or to anyone that searched for “Christian Bale” during THE DARK KNIGHT RISES run. It’s an official version of all those set photos we saw last summer.
It’s great that we have an official image from the film and I like the colors and style of the image, but it would have been great to get an official synopsis from the film or at least a release date. Right now, the only “official” thing we have about the film is from the film’s financiers in that KNIGHT OF CUPS is “a story of man, temptations, celebrity and excess.” We also know that a lot of actors have been spotted on set, but if you know anything about Terrence Malick, you know that just because you film some scenes, that doesn’t mean you’ll make the final cut. But here are some of the possible stars of KNIGHT OF CUPS; Christian Bale, Natalie Portman, Cate Blanchett, Isabel Lucas, Wes Bentley, Imogen Poots, Freida Pinto, Teresa Palmer, Ryan O’Neal, Antonio Banderas, Joel Kinnaman and Jason Clarke. But for right now, we can assume that Christian Bale and Natalie Portman will show up in the final product. Again, no release date yet. (THR)
