Terrence Malick’s Christian Bale & Natalie Portman-Starring ‘Knight Of Cups’ To Premiere At The Berlin Film Festival

knight of cups

The first seven films for the 65th Berlin International Film Festival Competition programme have been selected. The programme selections include former Berlinale bear winners Andreas Dresen (Nightshapes, Grill Point) and Terrence Malick (The Thin Red Line) with their newest works. Frequent Berlinale Forum guest Peter Greenaway will participate in this year’s Competition. The directorial debut by Jayro Bustamante – simultaneously Guatemala’s debut in Competition –, a feature film by former Generation participant Andrew Haigh, and the newest work by Russian director Alexey German are also among the first selected Competition films. The live-action ‘Cinderella’ by Kenneth Branagh will screen out of competition.

‘Knight Of Cups’ is one of two films Terrence Malick filmed back-to-back in 2012. As a massive Malick fan, it feels slightly bizarre – yet thoroughly thumbs-up worthy – that he filmed two movies that year. Since his debut film in 1973, ‘Badlands,’ the filmmaker has only made five other movies: ‘Days Of Heaven,’ ‘The Thin Red Line,’ ‘The New World,’ ‘The Tree of Life’ and ‘To The Wonder.’ The likes of Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Wes Bentley, Isabel Lucas, Natalie Portman, Imogen Poots, Freida Pinto, Justin Wheelon, and Jason Clarke all filmed scenes for ‘Knight of Cups.’ Films confirmed in competition to date (in alphabetical order):
