Have you ever watched a "Fast and Furious" movie (any of the previous five qualify, including "Tokyo Drift," we guess) and thought, "Man, this is good, but I kind of wish there was less action. Less fights, less explosions, less street races. Actually, you know what would be great? If this was directed by Sofia Coppola." Of course you have. Who hasn't? Get More »
The new trailer for Terrence Malick's latest impressionistic meditation on love, life and nature has just arrived courtesy of Apple Trailers, but you may want to take your Dramamine, because it has so many majestically swooping shots that you'll probably get motion sickness just watching it.
Director Terrence Malick is known for tugging at heartstrings with his humanist cinematic prose, and it looks like he's put together some more that existential magic with his newest pic, "To the Wonder."
The first trailer for the film rings a familiar bell for those of us who watched his poetic "Tree of Life" last year. Only, rather than utilizing dinosaurs and the cosmos to illustrate the frailty of life, he's employed the use of vast open fields and a multitude of close-ups to intimate the theme of love and all its forms.

Here's some inside intel for casual movie fans contemplating their Oscar predictions: By the time the Academy Awards roll around, we know who's going to win in pretty much every major category.
Sure, there can be surprises and the occasional too-close-to-call race, but after so many other award functions play out in the lead-up to Oscar night, from the Critics Choice to the Golden Globes to the all the guild gatherings, patterns emerge and some favorites appear unbeatable.
That's why if you're about to head to Vegas (Editor's note: NextMovie does not condone gambling, unless you're sharing …) and lay down some scratch on "The Artist" winning Best Picture, the rewards, at this point, won't be too tempting. Get More »

Oscar Predictions 2012: Who Will Win?
Actress-turned-mother Natalie Portman is returning to work for the first time since nabbing the Best Actress Oscar for "Black Swan" and going on maternity leave. The brunette beauty has officially signed on to join not one, but two upcoming films by writer/ director/ savant Terrence Malick.
The first, a drama entitled "Knight of the Cups," begins shooting this summer and also stars Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett and Isabel Lucas, Deadline reports.
After that comes "Lawless," a musical drama (we're not sure what that means either) whose cast includes Rooney Mara, Ryan Gosling, Christian Bale, Haley Bennett and Cate Blanchett (one of Malick's favorites, clearly). This second feature is slated to shoot this fall, immediately following "Knight of the Cups." Get More »
Terrence Malick's non-linear existential meditation on family, "The Tree of Life," earned another accolade yesterday as the African-American Film Critics Association named it their selection for Best Picture of 2011.
In other major categories, "The Help" and the independent film "Pariah" led the way with two wins each, with "The Help"'s Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer winning Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress respectively. "Pariah" took home the award for Best Independent Film, while star Adepero Oduye won for breakout Performance. Get More »
With Martin Scorsese's family film "Hugo" charming audiences of all ages, the fidgety director's old penchant for probing the psyches of psychos seems consigned to the '70s, along with giant collars and non-ironic mustaches.
Marty is now far more interested in giving us warm feelings in our tummies than in stabbing us repeatedly with a shiv. And this made us wonder: If such a long-time utilizer of the R rating is going PG, what other directors of "adult situations" will soon be yearning to explore the world through the innocent eyes of children?
Hey, remember when acclaimed Oscar winning director Terrence Malick dropped out of Hollywood for two decades, giving up his movie career entirely for a life of quiet retirement? Well, turns out he just really needed a massive power nap, because boy, his batteries sure seem recharged now.
To wit: According to indieWire, the secretive and notoriously slow Malick is going to filming not one, but two new movies starring Christian Bale and Cate Blanchett -- and he's doing them both next year.
Sounds like someone finally discovered 5-Hour Energy. Get More »
There are two ways to watch writer-director Terrence Malick's visually arresting "The Tree of Life," which won the Palme d'Or at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival and has divided audiences and critics alike.
The first is to turn off the sound and let the movie play in the background at a party or social gathering like it is a living, moving piece of art filled with stunning images of the cosmos, elements, wildlife, microbiology and even dinosaurs.
The second way -- watching the movie like any other with the sound turned on and popcorn in hand -- demands much more of the viewer because of Malick's abstract style and non-linear story structure, which will frustrate those impatient with the artistic indulgences of this unique brand of esoteric cinema.
