Terence Malick's "To The Wonder"
The mercurial methods of Terrence Malick tend to affect his actors in various ways. Christopher Plummer vowed to never work with him again, Ben Affleck said the experience "was a wash" in terms of learning or gaining anything, while Christian Bale seems to love the whole process, starring in "The New World" and now leading Malick's next two pictures. The director's methods are as unique as they are baffling, and Olga Kurylenko, star of his upcoming "To The Wonder" shared some of his unique requests.

We prophesized this film might be the most unintentionally hilarious 3D movie ever made, and it seems that prediction is coming true. Announced with great fanfare more than two years ago as a $100 million (though it's apparently much more than that) Chinese 3D movie production with the "Avatar" 3D camera operator Anthony Arendt lending his talents to the production, with Michael French and Jonathan Lawrence co-directing, word on the movie has been pretty much zilch since. However, it should be noted that Pitof (of the notorious "Catwoman" fame) was originally attached with Monica Bellucci in the lead, and we can't imagine he could have done much worse.

Anyone who says that actors are an afterthought in a Terrence Malick film are doing a serious injustice to the director and his work. It would be somewhat surprising to find A-listers queueing up to work with the filmmaker if he wasn't someone who worked well with his performers, and one doesn't have to think very hard to come up with memorable turns in his pictures -- Sissy Spacek in "Badlands," Richard Gere in "Days Of Heaven," Jim Caviezel in "The Thin Red Line," Q'orianka Kilcher in "The New World," Hunter McCracken in "The Tree Of Life" -- even if the landscape and imagery is just as important.

One of the most exciting things about the coming of the fall movie season is the chance to see some new talent emerge from some of the prestige fare that'll be hitting theaters in the next few months. Last year, for instance, saw the likes of Jean Dujardin, Bérénice Bejo, Eddie Redmayne, Rooney Mara, Shailene Woodley, Elizabeth Olsen and Felicity Jones go from virtual unknowns to, if not household names, than certainly performers whose next moves would be watched closely.

Terence Malick's "To The Wonder"
Even though the film actually premiered a week ago, and is unveiled in Toronto today, most of the world has only seen a single glimpse of Terrence Malick's latest "To The Wonder." An image, released soon after the start of filming in early 2011, of Ben Affleck and Rachel McAdams. And despite our attempts to convince some, after seeing, and liking very much, the film in Venice, that the film was actually made up of nothing but a two hour freeze-frame of that still over some classical music, it's actually a rather misrepresentative image.

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” (only his sixth in forty years) isn’t just unprecedented, it’s positively mind-boggling, especially given that the director is currently shooting a pair of films, “Knight of Cups” and another untitled film starring Ryan Gosling, back to back.

We guess the mystery is over to a certain degree. With its Venice Film Festival premiere looming this weekend, details about Terrence Malick's "To The Wonder" have been coming in fits and starts, with many wondering about the course the story will take after the director has seemingly axed everyone from the movie. And while words on the page hardly convey what the helmer will conjure on screen, this latest batch of info is the best intel yet about the narrative path (such as it is) and surprisingly reveals that Malick must read Pitchfork or something.

While most talk these days around Olga Kurylenko might center around her roles on Starz's "Magic City" and upcoming films like Terrence Malick's "To the Wonder," "Seven Psychopaths" and "Oblivion" with Tom Cruise, it might be easy to forget that way back in 2010 work started on $100 million dollar, 3D production "Empires of the Deep." A handful of set photos have been knocking around for a while, but what looks to be the first official image has now emerged.

It was just a couple of weeks ago that we wondered if we were going to be seeing Terrence Malick's then-untitled romance starring (deep breath) Ben Affleck, Olga Kurylenko, Rachel McAdams, Rachel Weisz, Javier Bardem, Barry Pepper, Michael Sheen and Amanda Peet before the end of the year. And at the time, the answer was: who knew? The enigmatic director keeps to himself and likes to continually tinker, but with two more movies gearing up this year in the formerly titled "Lawless" and "Knight Of Cups," we hoped that meant this one was finally nearing the finish line. And it appears that's the case.

First titled "Oblivion," then for a moment "Horizons" the Tom Cruise starring, Joseph Kosinski directed sci-fi film is currently untitled, but more importantly, undergoing a bit of a casting switcheroo.
