Must Watch: Hypnotic first trailer for Terrence Malick's Knight of Cups

Fresh on the heels of news that it will play at the Berlin Film Festival in February comes the first trailer for Terrence Malick’s latest opus Knight of Cups.

The story deals with temptations, celebrity, and excess. And that’s as much as we know.

A brilliant cast is led by Christian Bale, alongside Cate Blanchett, Natalie Portman, Antonio Banderas, Brian Dennehy, Isabel Lucas, Imogen Poots, Wes Bentley, Freida Pinto, Teresa Palmer, Armin Mueller-Stahl, and the voice of Ben Kingsley.

Knight of Cups will be out sometime in 2015.

Once there was a young prince whose father, the king of the East, sent him down into Egypt to find a pearl. But when the prince arrived, the people poured him a cup. Drinking it, he forgot he was the son of a king, forgot about the pearl and fell into a deep sleep.

Rick’s (Christian Bale) father used to read this story to him as a boy.

The road to the East stretches out before him. Will he set forth?
