Magnolia Pictures has unveiled the trailer for "To The Wonder," starring Ben Affleck, Olga Kurylenko, Rachel McAdams and Javier Bardem. Check it out below.
Plot: The story revolves around Marina (Kurylenko) and Neil (Affleck), who meet in France and move to Oklahoma to start a life together, where problems soon arise. While Marina makes the acquaintance of a priest and fellow exile (Bardem), who is struggling with his vocation, Neil renews a relationship with a childhood sweetheart, Jane (McAdams).
The new movie is directed by Terrence Malick (The Tree of Lif, The Thin Red Line). Magnolia has yet to set a release date.

The Tree of Lif? Is that a Viking reference?
And: looks like "The Tree of Life 2: Replanted".
No thanks. Terrence's style is getting stale.

Man, I prefer Borges to Malick, although the first was only a writer but what a writer.
As everything in any Mr. Malick films this looks pretty and has technically superb shots.
So sad for some of us that making a film requires more money than writing a short-story or even a book.

^^You can write a book and publish it for free.

Thank you, Mink, I'm better get into it right now.
There is youtube.

I was serious, sedibus. You can write a novel, and then sell it either on Amazon as an epub book, or through your own website using a typical e-commerce cart system.

Well, yes, I already have one published but in Spanish language only.
An small bunch of short-stories around the web too and also a couple of short-films we made during school years, university I mean, but with no Engsubs.
By the way, Mink, doing it that way is ruff, but not impossible I might say.

I like Malick's visual style. He has some beautiful framing of shots mixed with an 'up close and personal' fluidity of camerawork. But his films tend to be vague and go nowhere storywise. I thought Tree of Life was a beautiful LOOKING film, but it left me wanting a meatier narrative. This looks exactly like Tree of Life.

Im a sucker for Malick. I like all of his films. I completely understand all of the criticisms above, there is a vast vagueness to the narrative but I find that intriguing it lends a romantic element to the movie a sense of something bigger a vaster message than one story or example.

He rip-offed his new style from Tree of Life. Except where as that was childhood growth and wonderment, this is just Affleck in love with two girls as the character spins around them.
Damnit Terry. Could you go back to your 70s stuff?
