Moving on from the ‘Dark Knight’ and venturing into a completely different role from his latest ‘Exodus’ character, Christian Bale is set to star in the next film from Terrence Malick called ‘Knight of Cups’. The film centers around the almost endless temptations, excess and lust that surrounds the celebrity lifestyle, while spotlighting its darker corners.
The film itself was written and directed by Terrence Malick. Joining Bale on-screen are Cate Blanchett and Natalie Portman. If you were hoping that a few of the film’s secrets would be revealed by the trailer, keep hoping, the dark-trailer doesn’t shine a bright light on the screenplay. Filled with sex, extravagance, drug-use and ominous undertones, the film has Malick’s fingerprints all over it, but you will have to wait until the film releases next year to fully understand any of it.
The film will start its festival tour when it premieres at the Berlin Film Festival this February.
