The first trailer has been released for Terrence Malick‘s To The Wonder. In the vague semblance of a plot, Olga Kurylenko plays a woman who travels to Oklahoma to be with the man she loves only to discover that their relationship isn’t as strong as they previously thought. There’s also a story involving a priest who grapples with his loneliness and has almost no narrative relation to the other plotline. I caught the picture at TIFF, and although To The Wonder is one of Malick’s shortest films, it feels like his longest. His attempt to make an intimate film about intimacy caved in on itself, and most of the movie is just people whispering narration and twirling. The majesty presented in this trailer is almost completely misleading.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The film also stars Ben Affleck, Rachel McAdams, and Javier Bardem. To The Wonder is set to open on April 12, 2013.
" I knew there was another movie to be made, and I had a sense of what it could be. There’s a story about friendship in here that can be really interesting, that also involves a road trip. Thematically, there was something interesting about that to me."
Which would you save? ‘Star Wars’ or ‘Star Trek’? Han Solo or Indiana Jones? ‘Game of Thrones’ or ‘Breaking Bad’? Watch as Jai Courtney, Emilia Clarke, Jason Clarke, director Alan Taylor, and Skydance’s David Ellison and Dana Golberg are forced to choose.
