"Hey, you know what would be a good idea?

Okay, no one actually said that sentence, but sometimes you have to wonder what marketing departments are thinking. And so, here's part of the first trailer for the thriller "Runner Runner," brought to you by the people who aren't even John Tesh and Mary Hart.

With his second Oscar under his belt for "Argo" and a plethora of options in front of him -- the Stephen King adaptation "The Stand," the remake of "Tell No One," and out his brewing Whitey Bulger biopic -- the filmmaker will be returning home for another Boston tale, albeit one that will see him raiding the costume departments.

To The Wonder, Ben Affleck Rachel McAdams
For a man not known for being prolific, an eighteen-month gap between Terrence Malick’s “The Tree of Life” (the filmmaker’s first film in five years) and his latest “To the Wonder” (which premiered at the Venice Film Festival last summer) isn’t just unprecedented, it’s positively mind-boggling, especially given the director is now in the midst of a pair of films, “Knight of Cups” and a still untitled effort set against the music scene.

Okay, we got some of the jokes out of our system yesterday, so now we can return to talking about Terrence Malick's "To The Wonder" seriously, and what better way to do that than with five clips from the movie that really delve into the thematic territory the filmmaker explores with his latest.

Toldja? When Magnolia Pictures picked up Terrence Malick's "To The Wonder" last fall, we openly wondered if that meant that the filmmaker's latest effort was going to end up mostly being an option on your TV screen rather than at your local arthouse, and it worries us to say, that may be the case.

For a filmmaker who’s famous for having a twenty-year gap between films, Terrence Malick has been surprisingly prolific as of late. His last film was 2011’s “The Tree Of Life” and here we are, just under two years later with another film from the reclusive director just around the corner, with more to come. It’s a little over a month until the divisive “To The Wonder” hits theatres in the U.S. (it’s already playing in the U.K.) and a new trailer has arrived online.

To The Wonder, US poster header
By this point, you probably feel as if you've seen Terrence Malick's mystical and dreamy upcoming picture, "To The Wonder." Starring Ben Affleck and Olga Kurylenko, along with Rachel McAdams and Javier Bardem, the film has already been released in Europe, and thus you've seen myriad posters, photos, clips, teasers, trailers and behind-the-scenes footage. It's essentially about a man (Affleck) torn between two women, his new bride from Europe (Kurylenko) and his childhood flame (McAdams), and it echoes some of the autobiographical elements of Malick's life (he left one wife to live with a woman in Paris in the 1980s).

While doing so for any movie always seems like you're taking a moment best experienced in context and distorting it, to try and make clips out of a Terrence Malick film is an especially dicey prospect. His pictures, more than any other, build on cumulative power, so with those caveats in mind, a new snippet from "To The Wonder" lies below.

Even though Terrence Malick has made not talking to the press a trademark, his process is not quite as mysterious. Though he starts with a script, the director shoots for mood not narrative, and finds the film on location and in the editing suite. And as you might expect, with three pretty generous behind-the-scenes featurettes arriving for his latest "To The Wonder," you won't see him in a single frame of it.
