The U.S. theatrical trailer for Terrence Malick’s To the Wonder is now available. The mesmerizing trailer isn’t shy about touting the main theme of the film: love, in all of its dynamic incarnations. In between shots of the main characters in the throes of passion or struggling with a relationship that’s lost its fire, a sermon on love narrates the changing nature and transformative power of the complicated emotion. What’s starts out as a big-budget version of a jewelry advertisement eventually sinks its hooks into you if you let it.
Starring Ben Affleck, Olga Kurylenko, Javier Bardem and Rachel McAdams, To the Wonder opens on April 12th. You can read Matt’s review of the film here. Hit the jump to watch the new trailer.
TO THE WONDER tells the story of 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). Bold and lyrical, the film is a moving, gorgeously shot exploration of love in its many forms. Written and directed by Terrence Malick.
