Sometimes, the right chemistry of material comes together to make for a ripe trailer mashup, and recently those ingredients were found in the most unlikely place: the first trailer for “Knight Of Cups.” Featuring more frenzied editing and electronically pulsating music than we’re used to from Malick, and with a voiceover that could be ripped out of the diaries of Bruce Wayne, it wasn’t long until someone took at shot at marrying the worlds of Terrence Malick and Christopher Nolan. And it was…okay. But two more have landed that raise the bar.
First up is an effort from video cutting maestro Nelson Carvajal, who takes the right path of keeping the voiceover and weaving into footage strictly from the The Dark Knight trilogy. And it’s an approach Noah R. Taylor utilizes too, with both mashups getting the mix just right.
“Knight Of Cups” doesn’t have a distributor yet or a release date, and more footage will come, forever enabling a galaxy of mashups, unfolding like warm rays of sun on your face, warming your very soul, until you feel the love you did as a small child. Watch below.
