Following on from last weeks collection of images featuring Christian Bale and Natalie PortmanThe Daily Mail has uncovered this new selection of images of Bale and Cate Blanchett on the set of Terrence Malick’s ‘Knight Of Cups,’ one of two films Malick is filming back-to-back in 2012. As a massive Terrence Malick fan it feels slightly bizarre – yet thoroughly thumbs-up worthy – that he’s filming two films this year, as since his debut film ‘Badlands’ in 1973, the acclaimed filmmaker has only made four other flicks; ‘Days Of Heaven,’ ‘The Thin Red Line,’ ‘The New World,’ and last years ‘The Tree of Life’ - which won the 2011 Palme d’Or at Cannes. Alongside ‘Knight Of Cups,’ Malick has been shooting the tentatively-titled ‘Lawless’ this year. ‘Knight Of Cups’ stars Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Wes Bentley, Isabel Lucas, Natalie Portman, and Justin Wheelon, while ’Lawless’ will star Ryan Gosling, Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara, Haley Bennett, and Natalie Portman.

Terrence Malick also has a romantic-drama, ‘To The Wonder,’ filmed and rumoured for release later this year. ‘To The Wonder’ stars the likes of Ben Affleck, Olga Kurylenko, Javier Bardem, Barry Pepper, Rachel McAdams, Michael Sheen, Amanda Peet, Jessica Chastain and Rachel Weisz. The story concerns a philanderer (Ben Affleck) who, feeling at loose ends, travels to Paris, where he enters a hot-and-heavy affair with a European woman (Olga Kurylenko). Said Lothario returns home to Oklahoma, where he marries the European woman (in part for visa reasons). When the relationship founders, he rekindles a romance with a hometown girl (Rachel McAdams) with whom he’s had a long history.
