More Images of Bale in Malick’s Knight of Cups

Written by Alexander Tucker   // 07/05/2012

Knight of CupsOkay, now I see what is going on in Terrence Malick’s new film starring Christian Bale. ‘Knight of Cups,’ is either about a serial dater or lover who takes all his woman to the same spots (Creepy) or (and more likely) there is some sort of mysticism surrounding Bale’s character and he is in and out of some sort of dream sequences where he’s seeing the women in his life rotate, but the settings are remaining the same.


Now, why is this more likely? Well, two reasons. First, I don’t see a romantic like Terrence Malick writing a film about a serial dater. It just doesn’t vibe with his whole style and history of filmmaking. Second, Knight of Cups is a Tarot card and we all know, there is mysticism surrounding tarot cards. The Knight of Cups Card, like most if not all of the Cups suit, is an optimistic, good card to see in a reading. Nothing is optimistic about a weird serial dater who takes all his woman to the same place.


Another reason I say its about a man who suffers from some kind of trauma or is dying and reminiscing past relationships, is the fact that Bale has only been seen in Black and dark grey clothes. Again, Malick and the symbolism in his films lead me to believe that the black somehow represents death or decay.


Or I could be way off base, but with Terrence Malik, you have to take guesses because he will not give you any clues or some early studio synopsis. He will keep, as he always has, this film under wraps for as long as he can. I would guess we will get some sort of obscure trailer next year, probably a week before it opens in some foreign Film Fest.


In the picture gallery below, I have some examples of women in the same places visa vie Freida Pinto, Natalie Portman, and Isabel Lucas. Pinto and Portman are on the beach and these latest images of Christian Bale and Isabel Lucas look just like the ones shot with Bale and Portman behind the wheel of a big black convertible at the same location.
