Terrence Malick’s Knight of Cups to Premiere at Berlinale 2015

Knight of Cups

Knight of Cups, one of the three (known) projects Terrence Malick currently has ruminating in the editing room, will world premiere in competition at the upcoming Berlinale. Starring Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett and Natalie Portman, the film assesses the excesses and temptations of a man in modern-day Los Angeles. It should be interesting to see Malick take what is his characteristically lyrical lens to a more middle of the road subject matter. The Competition section of the festival, which runs from February 5 to 15 for its 65th edition, will also feature Andrew Haigh’s anticipated Weekend follow-up, 45 Years, starring Charlotte Rampling. Previously announced titles can be found here and here.
