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.

After all the talk from last year’s TIFF centered around the eventually Oscar-winning Best Picture 12 Years a Slave, you can’t blame yourself if you forgot Oscar-winning screenwriter John Ridley brought another film he both wrote and directed. Jimi: All Is By My Side flew under the radar and was mired by a media blitz […]
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 […]
Often hitting the expected notes, coming home movies have become very familiar by this point. Writer-director Claudia Myers‘ Fort Bliss, however, stands apart in a few ways. Following a mother, played by Michelle Monaghan, the story tells of her return home as she has trouble picking up where she left off with her child. It’s the kind of […]
