After what amounts to about two years of waiting or more, cinephiles are drooling in anticipation at finally receiving their first look at Terrence Malick's long-gestating drama, "The Tree Of Life" starring Brad Pitt and Sean Penn and they're getting it this Friday when the Fox Searchlight picture's trailer debuts before Darren Aronofsky's psycho-horror ballet, "Black Swan" (it's called corporate synergy). However, we're getting a small taste now. The L.A. Times has been given a peek at the trailer in advance and they say the footage, "exceed expectations."

This is a story we hemmed and hawed on doing mostly because it seems like a sucker punch to gut the details on Terrence Malick's next film, "The Burial." And while the info is now making the rounds, for all the extensive plotting revealed, Malick has never been one to stick directly to a script, and the weightier thematic issues and the tone and tenor of the finished work often emerges throughout the editing process. So for everything that is mentioned here, how the final product is shaped probably isn't best described by simple plot beats. But needless to say, if you don't want to know anything about the film stop reading here. Seriously.

It's hard to believe after such a long wait, but Terrence Malick's "The Tree Of Life" will hit theaters in about six months. Really. And while we probably won't see a "Tree Of Life" Tuesdays marketing campaign modeled after Disney's approach to "Tron: Legacy," we won't have to wait too long to get our first look at the film.

With Terrence Malick hard at work on his next film starring Rachel McAdams, Ben Affleck, Rachel Weisz, Olga Kurylenko, Javier Bardem and Barry Pepper, details have, as usual with Malick, been completely under wraps. Aside from the casting, and set pictures revealing that Bardem and Pepper play priests in the film, little is known about the picture but has a French website spilled the beans on the title?

Ok, "Tree Of Life" is in the can and set for a May 27, 2011 release date (it'll likely premiere at the Cannes Film Festival a few days before the picture goes into regular theatrical release) so onto Terrence Malick's next film, an untitled feature that, shockingly, is already shooting in Oklahoma and not waiting five years to gestate.
