Terrence Malick's long awaited "The Tree Of Life" will unspool a week from today at the Cannes Film Festival, and the picture that had remained hidden for so long, will finally be revealed and talked about. In the past, we'd just have to wait patiently until the director decided what he would do next. However, Malick seems to have a fire lit under him as before "The Tree Of Life" was done, last fall, he got started on another film.

A brief addendum to our piece yesterday on the story behind the surprise announcement of a U.K. release of Terrence Malick's "The Tree of Life" before its mooted Cannes debut -- and it's another twist in what's turned out to be one of the more interesting behind-the-scenes business stories of the year. Icon Film Distribution Ltd, who've been set to distribute the film in the U.K. for some time, announced a May 4th release at the start of the week, something firmly denied by the film's U.S. distributors Fox Searchlight, and others close to the film.

Probably the biggest controversy of the week (despite the efforts of Disney and Jennifer Garner) has come over "The Tree of Life," the latest film from Terrence Malick that has been whipping up near-religious levels of anticipation in film fans everywhere, ourselves included. The film was all-but-confirmed to be playing Cannes last week, something that's been rumored ever since Fox Searchlight announced they'd be opening it in the U.S. at the end of May. But a spanner was thrown into the works by Empire's story on Monday that Icon, the distribution company originally founded by Mel Gibson, and who have the rights to the film in a number of territories, were planning to release it in the U.K. on Wednesday May 4th -- a week before Cannes gets underway, and over three weeks before the film opens in the States.

At the rate news is building around Terrence Malick's "The Tree Of Life" you would think it starred a masked hero in spandex. But kudos to Fox Searchlight for turning the director's cerebral film about existence, the universe and uh, dinosaurs into an event. A brand spanking new poster, two stills and two brand new sites for the film have been launched and while it hardly offers up anything particularly groundbreaking in terms of the film, it stokes the anticipation for the movie further.

While the release schedule is starting to look a little less grim over the next few months -- most upcoming weekends promise at least one picture that doesn't actively insult our intelligence, which is a start -- the wait for the May release of Terrence Malick's "The Tree of Life" still seems interminable. It's a picture that we've been looking forward to for the last couple of years, so you'll excuse us if we jump on to any slivers of information about the film which has largely been under wraps.

Lists are subjective. That's the joy of them, to some degree -- you get to see the tastes of others, and hopefully pick up a few tips for things you may have overlooked. And you're never going to find a list that you agree with 100%, particularly when the stakes are bigger -- lists of 'greatest films' or 'greatest directors' are a veritable minefield of disputes and feuds. But that doesn't change the fact that some lists are just dumb.

Also Reveals That Terrence Malick Consulted With NASA For Footage Of The CosmosWith a little more than four months to go before its release, the details about Terrence Malick’s long-awaited “The Tree of Life” are continuing to trickle out bit by bit. The film centers on a father in the 1950s (Brad Pitt) and his son Jack (Sean Penn), now grown up, in the present day as they deal with the residue of their difficult relationship. We’ve been watching that beautiful trailer more than we’d care to admit and we’re starting to feel those images burned onto our brains. The man responsible for creating those images, Emanuel "Chivo" Lubezki, (ace cinematographer for “Children Of Men”, “The New World”), spoke to the LA Times about the film, and revealed Malick's unorthodox approach to shooting the film.
