Between moonlighting as Batman and starring in crazy films like The Machinist, Christian Bale is proving himself to be one of the most versatile actors of our generation. In what looks to be another amazing and confusing project from director Terrence Malick, Bale plays a character thrown into a life of fame, excess and women. Here's a synopsis for Knight of Cups –
"Once there was a young prince whose father, the king of the East, sent him down into Egypt to find a pearl. But when the prince arrived, the people poured him a cup. Drinking it, he forgot he was the son of a king, forgot about the pearl and fell into a deep sleep. Rick’s father used to read this story to him as a boy. The road to the East stretches out before him. Will he set forth?"
Interesting. The film also stars fellow Academy Award winners Natalie Portman and the lovely Cate Blanchett. Check out the trailer for Knight of Cups below and look forward to its release next year.
