Watch: Wondrous Trailer for Terrence Malick's Divisive 'To the Wonder' Starring Ben Affleck and Rachel McAdams (VIDEO)

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). After she moves to Oklahoma with him, Marina is at first overjoyed by the change of scenery and the chance to start a life with Neil, but soon becomes disenchanted with it all as her relationship begins to unravel. Rachel McAdams co-stars as a past love of Neil's who comes back into the picture once Marina returns to Paris after failing to get Neil to marry her (thereby allowing her to live permanently in the U.S.).

    It's a testament to the power of really bad music to destroy something in an already vapid medium (the trailer). I'm sure that Mr. Malick cringed when he saw this, lacking authority to object to the corporate hack-job. Here's a listing of the complete, actual soundtrack which is fundamentally classical (not trapped in an elevator):

    Damn his movies make me inexplicably happy.
    Even if people don't like the film surly they could appreciate from a purely visual standpoint like films like Samsara.
