Watch: Teaser Trailer & New Poster For Terrence Malick-Produced ‘The Better Angels’

Watch: Teaser Trailer & New Poster For Terrence Malick-Produced 'The Better Angels'

Oh, the irony. While Terrence Malick‘s two in-the-works features are some of our Most Anticipated Films Of 2014, it’s actually a movie he produced, “The Better Angels,” that will be coming first. And by the looks of the first footage, even though he didn’t direct it, he might as well have (some first look photos here if you missed them).

Behind the camera for the film is Malick protégé and collaborator A.J. Edwards (who worked on “The New World,” “The Tree of Life” and “To the Wonder“) in a film that tracks the childhood of Abraham Lincoln, telling the story of the events that shaped him. And with a teaser and two clips from the film now landing online, in almost every way, it looks like Malick could’ve directed this, with the same ever moving camera, attention to nature and editing style. Certainly, his fingerprints are felt. 

Featuring Jason Clarke, Diane Kruger, Brit Marling, Wes Bentley and Braydon Denney, “The Better Angels” hits the Sundance Film Festival next week.

It makes me think of "The New World".
It looks very austere and serious… Definitly Malick's spirit.


I can't get over how much I'm enchanted by this for some reason. And the almost grabbing the hand shot is something I've always wanted to film. You beat me to it Malick… or Edwards.

Talk about a TEASE! No video at all.


I wonder if A J Edwards filmed this for Malick because Malick couldn't do it himself. Jason Clarke said in an old interview it was a project Malick was working on for like 20 years. From those clips, it's obviously filmed in Malick style.


Where….do we watch? Normally, with an article title like this, you'd think there would be an embedded video or link?


Not sure what to think about this…


The Tree of Life meets The White Ribbon? Yeah, that's pretty much what it looks like.
