Knight of Cups Theatrical Trailer #1 – Christian Bale

knight-of-cups Knight Of Cups stars Christian Bale as Rick, a screenwriter who’s a slave to the Hollywood system. The billing reads like a cologne commercial: 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.

Knight of Cups… for men.

Anyhoo this looks intensely showy and tedious, despite being written and directed by Terrence Malick, and also stars Natalie Portman, Teresa Palmer, Cate Blanchett, Wes Bentley, Joe Manganiello, Nick Offerman, Imogen Poots, Jason Clarke, Nicky Whelan, Antonio Banderas, Joel Kinnaman, Ben Kingsley, Isabel Lucas and Freida Pinto.

If you care, Knight of Cups is released in the UK on January 1st 2016, no doubt just in time for awards season, but just like Bridge Of Spies and Carol, my God they look dull!
