Looking at the recent crop of summer releases, one can feel a little dire about the state of cinema, but fear not, the fall is quickly approaching. While festivals will certainly hold premieres of some of our most-anticipated features, a few will also be arriving in theaters and today we have confirmation regarding a title we’ve been looking forward to for some time.
Following word it’ll at least premiere this year, then news of a final edit being completed, it looks like we will see distribution for Terrence Malick‘s Knight of Cups sooner than expected. Speaking today at the annual Ciné event in Riccione, Ernesto Grassi, CEO of Adler (the film’s Italian distributor), says the Christian Bale-led drama will hit limited U.S. theaters later this year before expanding, E-Duesse reports.
He also notes that “many” Oscar nominations are warranted for the film, but we’ll cross that futile bridge when we come to it. For those have been keeping tabs on the film following Bale as a depressed writer-type dealing with celebrities and excess, you’ll know that a U.S. distributor has actually yet to be unveiled. Perhaps this sort of announcement will arrive with news of a premiere (Venice and/or TIFF would be a likely bet), so as we wait, we’ve also rounded up a pair of worthwhile videos highlighting Malick’s work.
The first comes from Borealisk, who has crafted a tribute to Emmanuel Lubezki, the divine cinematographer and longtime collaborator with Malick and Alfonso Cuarón, who recently shot Alejandro González Iñárritu’s ambitious Birdman and will reteam with him for The Revenant. Then, after one is done watching a behind-the-scenes look at the making of The Tree of Life, Adrian Conlon has created a video tribute to Malick’s magnum opus. Check out both videos below.

As my review can attest to, I’m looking forward to not only watch John Wick again but also see how the film hits with general audiences when it arrives this weekend. The actioner stars Keanu Reeves as an ex-hitman who is crossed by the son of his old employer. When everything is taken from him, he decides to […]
Every week we dive into the cream of the crop when it comes to home releases, including Blu-ray and DVDs, as well as recommended deals of the week. If we were provided screener copies, we’ll have our own write-up, but if that’s not the case, one can find official descriptions from the distributors. Check out […]
Composer Nathan Johnson is a master at making off-beat and imperfect instruments sound distant yet accessible on a number of vastly different narratives (see: Brick, The Brothers Bloom, Looper). His latest work is a pair of scores for films that were both released this month, Jake Paltrow‘s neo-western Young Ones and the journalistic thriller Kill the Messenger starring Jeremy Renner. Johnson has also been producing a couple albums and […]
