First Look: TREE OF LIFE

Despite knowing that we are still just about a half a year out from laying eyes on Terrence Malick’s massively anticipated film, TREE OF LIFE, I honestly can’t believe that it’s finally about to see its premiere.

Being rumored as a release for roughly two years now, the film is slowly becoming one of the most hotly anticipated films for cinephiles that I can honestly remember.  Sure, something like AVATAR may have been more broadly anticipated, but at this point, TREE OF LIFE is slowly becoming the closest thing to a religious experience that we cinephiles will have a chance to have.

And now, thanks to the LA Times, we have our first look at this massively anticipated picture.

With the film’s trailer playing in front of prints of BLACK SWAN starting this weekend, the film is definitely set to get the promotional train rolling, and for good reason.  With a cast including both Brad Pitt and Sean Penn, the film has not only a filmmaker that can make any film lover excited, but a cast that is just as impressive.  I genuinely love the look and feel of both of these photos, but would really love to see them in motion in the respective trailer.  However, until then, you could do a lot worse than check out these photos.  They are absolutely beautiful.

Check back for the trailer as soon as it’s released.
