Watch: Teaser Trailer & New Poster For Terrence Malick-Produced 'The Better Angels'

Oh, the irony. While Terrence Malick's two in-the-works features are some of our Most Anticipated Films Of 2014, it's actually a movie he produced, "The Better Angels," that will be coming first. And by the looks of the first footage, even though he didn't direct it, he might as well have.

The Better Angels

Oh, the irony. While Terrence Malick's two in-the-works features are some of our Most Anticipated Films Of 2014, it's actually a movie he produced, "The Better Angels," that will be coming first. And by the looks of the first footage, even though he didn't direct it, he might as well have (some first look photos here if you missed them).

Behind the camera for the film is Malick protégé and collaborator A.J. Edwards (who worked on "The New World," "The Tree of Life" and "To the Wonder") in a film that tracks the childhood of Abraham Lincoln, telling the story of the events that shaped him. And with a teaser and two clips from the film now landing online, in almost every way, it looks like Malick could've directed this, with the same ever moving camera, attention to nature and editing style. Certainly, his fingerprints are felt. 

Featuring Jason Clarke, Diane Kruger, Brit Marling, Wes Bentley and Braydon Denney, "The Better Angels" hits the Sundance Film Festival next week.
