Debutterà a Berlino Knight of Cups, il prossimo film di Terrence Malick con Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett e Natalie Portman.

Ma le novità non finiscono qui. Il tanto atteso documentario Voyage of Time sull’origine dell’universo è ormai pronto ed interamente finanziato.

La IMAX stessa è entrata nella produzione del film e si occuperà di distribuire in esclusiva nelle sue sale la versione breve del film, che dura 40 minuti ed è narrata da Brad Pitt.

Quella lunga verrà invece lanciata nelle sale con il commento di Cate Blanchett.

Il film è stato concepito e girato nel corso degli ultimi 30 anni da Malick e sarà al Marché di Cannes per le vendite internazionali.

Ecco il comunicato stampa ufficiale:

BROAD GREEN PICTURES and IMAX JOIN SOPHISTICATED FILMS and WILD BUNCH TO BRING DIRECTOR TERRENCE MALICK’S VOYAGE OF TIME TO THE SCREEN

LOS ANGELES, BERLIN (February 3, 2015) – IMAX Corporation (NYSE:IMAX), together with Broad Green Pictures, today announced they are joining Sophisticated Films and Wild Bunch to complete financing of Terrence Malick’s VOYAGE OF TIME. Broad Green will have the first opportunity to distribute the feature film version in North America following the exclusive IMAX release. 

Gabriel and Daniel Hammond of Broad Green Pictures are executive-producing the film along with Tanner Beard, Mary Bing, Yves Chevalier, Christos V. Konstantakopoulos, Jacques Perrin, Ryan Rettig, and Donald Rosenfeld. Dede Gardner, Nicolas Gonda, Sarah Green, Grant Hill, Brad Pitt, Bill Pohlad and Sophokles Tasioulis are producing.  

VOYAGE commenced international sales at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, with GAGA (JPN), MARS (FR), Lumière (BENELUX) and EDKO (HK) among the first to secure distribution rights. 

VOYAGE OF TIME is a celebration of the universe, displaying the whole of time, from its start to its final collapse. This film examines all that occurred to prepare the world that stands before us now: science and spirit, birth and death, the grand cosmos and the minute life systems of our planet.  Malick is working first in the IMAX format for a 40-minute version with scientific narration by Brad Pitt, followed by a 35mm feature-length version with narration by Cate Blanchett.

VOYAGE OF TIME is the first recipient of financing from IMAX’s Original Film Fund, announced in May. The Fund, capitalized at $50-plus million, will co-finance a portfolio of 10 original IMAX films that will enable IMAX’s worldwide network to provide new digital content to its institutional partners in the form of documentaries that employ cutting-edge techniques, innovative filmmakers such as Malick, and embrace fresh new perspectives in documentary storytelling.

”Terrence Malick is one of the most innovative filmmakers in the world, and has literally been designing and making this movie with large-format cameras for over 30 years,” said Greg Foster, Senior Executive Vice President, IMAX Corp. and CEO of IMAX Entertainment. “To be able to launch our Film Fund portfolio with Malick and his imaginative style of filmmaking is capturing lightning in a bottle. We look forward to working with Terry and his producing partners on this groundbreaking film.”

“Terrence Malick is an innovator of epic scope,” said Gabriel and Daniel Hammond of Broad Green Pictures.  “We have long admired his work and could not be more excited to partner with him on this project.”

“We are thrilled to partner with IMAX and Broad Green, who, along with our partners at Sophisticated Films and Wild Bunch, provide a combined expertise to ensure Terry’s vision is carried out at the highest level,” said Nicolas Gonda and Sarah Green.

Said Sophisticated’s Sophokles Tasioulis: “I am extremely pleased to welcome IMAX and Broad Green to VOYAGE OF TIME. In the past 12 months we have been working hard to secure the best imaginable set-up for Terry. With IMAX we give VOYAGE the perfect stage for the epic scale and ambition of the project and with Broad Green we bring on one of the most dynamic new powerhouses of the film industry.”
