To The Wonder release date April 12, 2013
The About face: Oscar nominated director Terrence Malick's follow up to Tree Of Life.
The Wild side: After visiting Mont Saint-Michel — once known in France as The Wonder — at the height of their love, Marina (Olga Kurylenko) and Neil (Ben Affleck) come to Oklahoma, where problems soon arise. Marina makes the acquaintance of a priest and fellow exile (Javier Bardem), who is struggling with his vocation, while Neil renews his ties with a childhood friend, Jane (Rachel McAdams). Written and directed by Terrence Malick, To the Wonder is an exploration of love in its many forms.
The Movie facts: While the movie features a cast of Oscar winners and nominees, the studio releasing it, Magnolia Pictures, has never had a box office hit, let alone a movie earn more than $3 million at the box office. Can the Terrence Malick movie To The Wonder change all of that? If it does not, it will prove that Ben Affleck is NOT a box office magnet.
