Christian Bale’s ‘Knight of Cups’ Gets March Release Date

Broad Green Pictures has set a March 4 date for the U.S. release of Terrence Malick’s fantasy drama “Knight of Cups” starring Christian Bale, opting to skip this year’s awards season.

Knight of Cups” premiered at the Berlin Film Festival in February.

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.

Variety‘s Justin Chang called the film “flawed but fascinating” in his review at Berlin.

Year-old Broad Green, which specializes in adult-oriented dramas such as “99 Homes,” also set awards-season releases for two other titles — an Oct. 23 release date for suburban drama “I Smile Back,” starring Sarah Silverman and Josh Charles, and a Dec. 11 launch for New Zealand chess drama “The Dark Horse,” starring Cliff Curtis and James Rolleston.

“I Smile Back” premiered at Sundance with Silverman strong critical support for her portrayal of a housewife in a downward spiral. Variety’s Scott Foundas said in his review that her performance draws so deep into her character that “everything else seems to fade away.”

“The Dark Horse” won Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor and Best Score at the 2014 New Zealand Film Awards. It premiered at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival.
