The first teaser trailer of Terrence Malick’s To the Wonder has debuted through The Guardian.
The romantic drama features Argo star/director Ben Affleck as a man who finds himself torn between a woman who has moved to the US to be with him (Olga Kurylenko) and an old flame (Rachel McAdams).
The film also features Javier Bardem as a priest who starts to question his own faith, and presumably lots of shots of fields and nature (which is no bad thing as far as OTB is concerned).
Malick’s previous film The Tree of Life won the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival in 2011 and was nominated for three Oscars.
Malick has had a somewhat nomadic career, taking a 20-year break from filmmaking following the release of two masterpieces, Badlands (1973) and Days of Heaven (1978), returning in 1998 with The Thin Red Line. To the Wonder will be the director’s third film since 2005, with another three in the pipeline, including Knight of Cups and a project based around the music industry. The interlinked movies will both feature Christian Bale, Natalie Portman and Cate Blanchett.
To the Wonder, Malick’s sixth feature, will open in the UK on February 22, 2013.
