There are many different time spans on movies in Hollywood these days and, while there are many that can film at the beginning of the year and release the very same year, there are others that can take some time to actually get its big release. The latter has certainly been the case for the upcoming Terrence Malick movie Knight of Cups, which has been years in the making.
We first heard that Terrence Malick was making the movie Knight of Cups back in 2011, before the project then began filming in 2012. Knight of Cups then went into post-production in 2012 and we have been waiting for its big release ever since. Not a great deal is known about the project but, with an all-star cast including Natalie Portman, we expect it to be quite an impressive movie.
Knight of Cups boasts an all-star cast including such big Hollywood stars as Imogen Poots, Joe Manganiello, Christian Bale, Jason Clarke, Joel Kinnaman, Cate Blanchett, Teresa Palmer, Nick Offerman, Freida Pinto, Antonio Banderas, Nicky Whelan, Isabel Lucas, Wes Bentley and Thomas Lennon, as well as Natalie Portman.
Knight of Cups has been directed by Terrence Malick, who also wrote the screenplay for the movie, while Nicolas Gonda, Sarah Green, Ken Kao are producers on the film. While there is no official release date for Knight of Cups yet, we do expect it to open sometime in 2014, as Terrence himself recently admitted that it will open on limited release this year, before spreading nationwide. We look forward to seeing what the film has to offer.
Thanks to Claudia, I’ve added scans of Empire Magazine’s March issue. There’s a small article about Natalie’s 1994 film Leon, and a couple of photos. Check them out.
I’ve added two adorable images from a 1990 photoshoot of Natalie. Check them out in the gallery.
Natalie’s been at the Shanghai Film Festival for the past few days, attending an exhibition, a press conference, and the closing ceremony. I’ve added HQ images to the gallery.
Kidman will bring “Grace of Monaco” to the event, which runs June 14-22, while Portman will be at the closing ceremony.
Nicole Kidman and Natalie Portman will attend the 17th Shanghai International Film Festival (SIFF) later this month, adding some international star power to the event, with women in film set to become a theme of the fest.
Kidman will bring Grace of Monaco to the festival, while Portman will attend the closing ceremony, organizers said.
Also attending the fest will be Kirsten Dunst, Hugh Grant and Hayden Christensen, who features in Nicholas Powell’s Outcast, and Korean stars Rain, Son Tae-yeong and Song Seung-heon.
The Shanghai fest, which began in 1993, remains an important fixture on the film festival circuit in Asia, especially since the Chinese box office started to explode over the past few years, even if the Shanghai festival has had to share the limelight with the Beijing festival in the past few years.
The jury for the Golden Goblet competition will be led by Chinese actress Gong Li, the first time a woman has headed the jury.
The jury also includes Korean director Im Sang-soo, British director Sally Potter, Danish director Lone Scherfig, Chinese director Liu Jie, Iranian actor Peyman Moaadi and Japanese director Shunji Iwai.
The competition lineup so far includes John Carney’s Begin Again, Bangladeshi director Mostofa Sarwar Farooki’s Ant Story and Volker Schlöndorff’s Diplomatie.
The festival received an unprecedented 1,099 submissions for the Golden Goblet Award and 1,808 for the Film Panorama, organizers said, and will screen around 900 films in 35 theaters this year.
The Shanghai festival is scheduled to run June 14-22.
I’ve added screencaps of Natalie in Cold Mountain, and The Other Boleyn Girl. Check them out in the gallery.
Natalie appeared alongside Johnny Depp in Paul McCartney’s music video for ‘My Valentine’. Thanks to the previous owner Claudia, I have added HD screencaps of Natalie to the gallery.
