Magnolia has debuted the first trailer for Terrence Malick‘s new film, To The Wonder. The romantic drama centers on a man (Ben Affleck) who, feeling at loose ends, travels to Paris, and enters a hot-and-heavy affair with a European woman (Olga Kurylenko). He soon returns home to Oklahoma, where he marries her only to find out the relationship is on the rocks. He winds up rekindling a romance with a hometown girl (Rachel McAdams) with whom he’s had a long history.
The trailer is about as Malick-y as you could expect, almost to the point of derision and it reminds a lot of the one for The Tree of Life. Lots of pretty landscape, lots of twirling around in the wind and serious stares into the distance. The movie premiered earlier this year in Venice and reviews have been quite mixed due to Malick’s enigmatic ways.
At any rate, check out the trailer for yourself below. To The Wonder is set to open on April 12, 2013.
