Terrence Malick’s “Knight of Cups,” starring Christian Bale, has been sold to most major foreign markets ahead of its appearance at the Berlin Film Festival in February.

FilmNation has sold the U.K. and Germany to StudioCanal, France to Metropolitan, Australia to Roadshow, Italy to Adler, Russia to Central Partnership, Canada to eOne, Latin America to Sun and Scandinavia to Svensk.

CAA and WME Global will handle U.S. rights in Berlin.

Bale plays a bewildered man in a life of Hollywood excess. Natalie Portman, Cate Blanchett, Antonio Banderas and Brian Dennehy also star.

Nicolas Gonda, Sarah Green and Ken Kao are producing. Malick’s last film, “To the Wonder,” starred Ben Affleck and Olga Kurylenko and grossed less than $3 million worldwide. His 2011 film, “The Tree of Life,” took in more than $50 million worldwide.

Screen first reported the international deals.

    As France (Metropolitan) was miscounted on BoxOfficeMojo, it was actually maybe more than $3 million for To the Wonder

    lol, don’t expect it to run in Canada for more than a week if eOne has the distribution. Kiss of death. So incompetent, their record proves it.
