Terrence Malick's latest will have its world premiere at Berlin

Joshua Rothkopf

Set to compete at the 65th Berlin International Film Festival in February, Terrence Malick's mystery-shrouded Knight of Cups (starring Christian Bale and Natalie Portman) will have its world premiere at the esteemed showcase. Malick's had good luck before at Berlin, winning the fest's top honor, the Golden Bear, in 1999 for The Thin Red Line, his long-awaited return to filmmaking after a 20-year absence. These days, it's a different story, with Malick releasing three films in the last four years alone (not counting an IMAX documentary, Voyage of Time, still in the works).

Other Berlin titles announced today included Kenneth Branagh's new version of Cinderella, starring Lily James and Cate Blanchett, which won't officially compete, along with anticipated work from director Peter Greenaway (forever the guy who made 1989's The Cook, the Thief, His Wife and Her Lover) and Andrew Haigh, following up his terrific gay romance, Weekend.
