Ever wonder about Terrence Malick's 30-years-in-the-making "Voyage of Time"? Well, it seems the film will now emerge at the upcoming Cannes market. Wild Bunch and Berlin-based Sophisticated Films are set to present first images from the feature to festival buyers.

With the announcement comes some clarification (though not too much) on what the film is even about. Per Wild Bunch, the film "is a celebration of the earth, displaying the whole of time, from the birth of the universe to its final collapse." And more specifically: it “examines all that went to prepare the miracle that stands before us now. After the nebulae and supernovae, after the lands of lava and smoke, after the elaboration of the first cells, first fish, first amphibians and reptiles, this great wonder!”

The film has come together with the involvement of "leading experts in natural history cinematography" who have been using IMAX cameras to capture the images. Wild Bunch goes so far as to call "Voyage of Time" the mysterious director's "most ambitious film to date."

Though it will be first glimpsed this week, "Voyage of Time" still has another small voyage of time before arriving on the big screen. They're saying it will hit theaters in a feature-length version in 2016, with a 40-minute version in the large format.

Brad Pitt's Plan B is one of the film's producers, leaving Variety to speculate that Pitt may very well narrate the film.
