‘Knight Of Cups’ Trailer: Christian Bale Stuns In Sexy Role
Christian’s character Rick is reportedly surrounded by “temptations, celebrity and excess,” according to our sister site Deadline.
The film seems to be way more character-centered than plot-centered, but it’s done in a way that’s fresh and focused. From the trailer, we can take away that Christian is “discovered” and goes to Hollywood to be made rich. There, he loses site of himself and his emotions in the glamorous world of Hollywood and strays far from the man he wanted to be.
“No one cares about reality anymore,” Christian says of his new life. “I can’t remember the man I wanted to be.”
There’s tons of shots of Christian — looking way swoon-worthy — experiencing his new life of women, partying, and excess. By the looks of it, Cate plays his wife, while Natalie plays a wild girl in Hollywood who tempts Christian in many sexy scenes.
“I was afraid when I was young. Afraid of life. You gave me peace, joy, love. Find your way from darkness to light. Remember.”
We love the dark and mysterious note the trailer ended on, and cannot wait to see the film! Knight of Cups will premiere at the Berlin Film Festival in February 2015.
