Trailer Spotlight: Knight of Cups

This trailer is an amazing breath of fresh air for me! I take pride in identifying good movies and this one is going to be one to remember. I can feel it in my bones. And whats the best part about this trailer? I don't know what to expect from the movie. The most common mistake in movie trailers today is that they are riddled with spoilers or plot and jokes. So often I watch a trailer for the new Vince Vaughn or Will Ferrell flick and every good joke is used in the trailer to rope you in the see all recycled filler. This trailer reminded me of an early Brett Easton Ellis novel made into moving pictures and that is what had me hooked from the beginning.

Knight of Cups looks like it should prove to be a thrilling ride on the human condition today. If I could rename this anything else it would be YOLO. From what I can gathered from the trailer it was about a man in Hollywood trying to balance all the chaos in his life and try and make sense of it all. His life obviously isn't where it should be and he is now trying to pick up with pieces. Sure enough, when I checked imdb, the synopsis was almost exactly that.

That's all I needed Hollywood! Take notes. The carrot is in place and you have moved me even more with beautiful score and juxtaposition of movie footage. We can expect some amazing performances from so extraordinary stars.

Watch for yourself now!

Knight of Cups is written and directed by Terrence Malick and scheduled to be released March 4, 2016 and stars Christian Bale, Natalie Portman, Cate Blanchett, Nick Offerman, Sir Ben Kingsley and many more!
