Lovers silhouetted against windswept fields, sweeping camera movements, dreamy sequences that don’t fully make sense, soaring classical music. Yup, it’s a new Terrence Malick film alright, and this time, it’s Ben Affleck, Olga Kurylenko and Rachel McAdams frolicking about as Javier Bardem waxes poetic in voiceover about love.
“To the Wonder” received mixed reviews when it premiered at the Venice Film Festival, and even Kurylenko and McAdams have been caught stumbling when trying to describe the film, which loosely follows Affleck’s character as he meets one girl (Kurylenko), falls in and out of love with her, and strikes up a romance with an old flame back home (McAdams). According to many audiences though, it’s mostly just the actors twirling around in beautiful locales and very little dialogue or exposition.
“To the Wonder” will be released on April 12, 2013 and the new trailer can be viewed below.
Pity there’s no higher quality version available yet because it is a Malick film, after all, and thus very beautiful to look at. The HD version has been added!
