There is not much known about the exact premise of Terrence Malick’s upcoming film, Knight of Cups. If you were to look on IMDb, you would see a description consisting merely of, “A man, temptations, celebrity, and excess”.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Glen Basner’s FilmNation will be showing footage of the film in Cannes. That’s where foreign distributors, investing in the film, will be able to get their first look at the film.
The film is still in post production, so not much will likely be known about the “highly guarded” plot until the completed film is finally shown in its entirety.
Knight of Cups stars Christian Bale and also features a very talent heavy cast that includes: Cate Blanchett, Natalie Portman, Brian Dennehy, Antonio Banderas, Freida Pinto, Wes Bentley, Isabel Lucas, Teresa Palmer, Imogen Poots, Armin Mueller-Stahl, Shea Whigham, Joe Manganiello, Joel Kinnaman, Thomas Lennon, and the voice of Ben Kingsley.
