READ MORE: Review: Terrence Malick’s ‘Knight of Cups’ Pushes the Director’s Style to Its Limits
What does wind sound like in Terrence Malick’s world? If this new teaser trailer for his “Knight of Cups” is any indication, it sounds like Diplo. No, you did not see that one coming. The new teaser plays up some big time Malick hallmarks — wind, women, worried looks — and sets them to the techno-infused jams of Diplo’s “Express Yourself.”
With an ensemble cast headed by Christian Bale and supported by Cate Blanchett, Natalie Portman, Teresa Palmer and Imogen Poots, “Knight of Cups” centers around a screenwriter and his spiraling odyssey in the sexualized, hard-partying and urban landscape of Hollywood. For Bale’s Rick, life is filled with unfulfilled promises and lots and lots of ladies and, apparently, the dulcet tones of Diplo and plenty of time attempting to commune with nature.
“Knight of Cups” premiered at last year’s Berlin International Film Festival to mostly positive reviews. The film will open in limited release this Friday. Watch the wind-fueled new trailer above.
