If there's anything at all to gather from these new images from Terrence Malick's "To The Wonder," it's this: love is a bummer. And indeed, nothing really ends well for Ben Affleck, Olga Kurylenko, Rachel McAdams and Javier Bardem in the film, but at least they look pretty damn good.

Terence Malick's "To The Wonder"
Well, if you're going to promote a movie about a relationship that falls apart, it's probably best to market the nice stuff that happens first to at least get people to buy a ticket. And with Terrence Malick's "To The Wonder" getting ready to open in the U.K. next month, yet another one sheet has arrived for the movie, showing our lead couple in happier times.

For those of you already well versed in the history of Matt Damon and Ben Affleck's Oscar-winning breakout film "Good Will Hunting," this will be old news. But for everyone else, this will be a couple of interesting bits of "What Could Have Been..."

It's nice to see the Yeti that is Terrence Malick come out of hiding these last few years. Ever since "The Tree Of Life," Malick's not only been working at an uncharacteristically quick clip, he's actually been finishing films at a rapid pace. His latest, the romance drama "To The Wonder" is already in the can (here's a recent French trailer). Starring Ben Affleck, Olga Kurylenko, Rachel McAdams and Javier Bardem (and several cameos, some of which never made the film), reviews from the Toronto International Film Festival and Venice were decidely divided -- some accusing the film to be a culmination of Malick's worst tendencies, others describing it as a work of beauty.

It's kind of a bummer to see so many dismissing Terrence Malick's upcoming "To the Wonder" with jokes about shots of wheat fields and sighs over the trademark camerawork he employs with Emmanuel Lubezski. But it speaks to the film itself, which is free from cynicism, and a deeply earnest and soulful look at love and loss, which some may have let their guard down to embrace.

With an Oscar-contending feature film making the rounds with "Argo," the press obligations that come with it, not to mention the many projects vying for his attention as an actor and director that are too numerous to name here, Ben Affleck is busy. And dude has got to sleep sometime, and it looks like he's taking one project off his plate.

Richard Gere Suggests Terrence Malick's 'Days Of Heaven' Was Shot Twice, Ben Affleck Says Making 'To The Wonder' Was "Half-Crazy"

While at one time Terrence Malick seemed to be an enigma we would know little about, his recent prolific jaunt that sees him working with nearly every actor in Hollywood suggests that for years to come, we're going to keep getting more and more anecdotes about the man and his films, even if he remains elusive to the press. Indeed, his approach to filmmaking, which often involves tossing out the script and shooting whatever the day or moment inspires, has been either freeing, baffling or anger-inducing depending on who you ask (Christopher Plummer is not a fan). And Richard Gere, who starred in the Malick's sophomore effort, "Days of Heaven," has not been shy about his own frustrations with the film.

Sorry guys and gals, a third reteam for Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone following "Crazy Stupid Love" and the upcoming "Gangster Squad" isn't in the cards. But Ben Affleck? That's a pretty nice consolation prize.

Ben Affleck's third feature-length effort "Argo" is like three movies in one. It's a thriller, a political drama, and even a Hollywood satire. The fact that it seamlessly mixes in the latter -- the comedy and near-absurdity of a fake Hollywood production -- with the grave and somber do-or-die drama of American citizens trapped in Iran during the late 1970s Islamic revolution, is a testament to just how good of a director Affleck has become. We raved about the film in Telluride. It's gripping, entertaining and funny, a slam dunk of a crowd-pleaser and yet a smart and engaging thriller in the classic '70s mold (see "All The President's Men," "Three Days Of the Condor" and the like; yes, it's very much in the spirit of that filmmaking). Here's the synopsis.

What's better than one Affleck? Two Afflecks. And what's better than two Afflecks? Two Afflecks and a Damon. That's right all three are coming together, putting their Voltron like powers toward a project that's a bit unexpected.
