Ahead of its UK release on Feb. 22, the first trailer for Terrence Malick's quick follow-up to "The Tree of Life" has made its way onto the web and it's a thing of -- you guessed it -- wonder. In the film, which divided audiences in Venice and Toronto, Olga Kurylenko stars as Marina, a soul-searching Ukranian raising her young daughter alone in Paris before falling in love with traveling American Neil (Ben Affleck).
