Watch: Yes, That Is Christian Bale Hanging With Paul Oakenfold Shooting Terrence Malick's 'Knight Of Cups'

While set pics from “Knight Of Cups” have been notable for revealing various new additions to the cast including Wes Bentley, Imogen Poots, Freida Pinto and Teresa Palmer, it looks like the latest video and image to be captured reveals the movie may share a musical connection with Malick’s other picture he’s shooting this year, the formerly titled “Lawless.” As you might recall, that movie has already done some kind of shooting at Austin City Limits last fall and SXSW this year, with bands like Arcade Fire, Fleet Foxes, The Cult and Neon Indian all featuring in some way. Now you can add one of the biggest DJs in the world to the mix.

This past weekend, Oakenfold spun at Lure Hollywood in Los Angeles, and Malick, Bale and the rest of the team was there to film and the DJ himself has upload a quick video of the actor standing by the decks. No word yet of Bale dropped the needle himself on any tunes. Oakenfold revealed the shoot was for “Knight of Cups” tweeting (with some spacing challenges): “Big Thank u Terrence Malick and Christian Bale for last night. Good luck with ‪#Batman‬ ‪#KnightofCups‬”

How will this play into the narrative? Is Malick a secret house music fan? Does Bruce Wayne endorse glo-sticks? So many questions. Check out the video below, ecstasy not included. [image courtesy BaleHeadsBlog; thanks to Neil for the tip on the video]

Why oh why is it Oakenfold??? He's always the face of dance culture from Hollywood's perspective, but he's not a great DJ, just a great self promoter (his legendary 'Jesus pose' during his sets back in the day… please). There's Sasha or Nick Warren or a host of others who have deeper and more interesting approaches. just my .02


Paul Oakenfold's music possibly not related with the film itself, but might be used in some specific scenes as background or something, or even as the tunes of the story it just this master director wants his film gets sense of fashion to attract young/club people? It's just like The Nobel Son, used loads of his house music as soundtrack which was nothing much related with that film itself.


Terry is pulling an avengers and connecting all of his films for here on out. That Dubstep comment is hilarious btw


Christian Bale (V.O.)
dubstep….where does it come from? how does it steal life and light into this world? All things shinin'…


I find it hard to believe at this point that these two films (Knight of Cups + Lawless) are not related in some way in character and content.
