“Love is not only a feeling.” Magnolia has debuted the first mesmerizing trailer for Terrence Malick‘s new film (one of them, at least) titled To the Wonder. This is the one that stars Ben Affleck and Rachel McAdams, as well as Olga Kurylenko. It’s about a vast love affair, set mostly in Oklahoma and a bit in France, with Affleck as the man in the middle. This trailer is as bleak and abstract as the film itself. Some of the voiceover is from Javier Bardem, playing the local priest, who really has no importance other than to say these lines. It’s not as good as this trailer looks, but dang does Malick shoot beautiful films. View below!

Rachel McAdams, Ben Affleck, Javier Bardem and Olga Kurylenko star in this new film from Terrence Malick, about a man who reconnects with a woman from his hometown after his marriage to a European woman falls apart. After visiting Mont Saint-Michel, Marina and Neil come to Oklahoma, where problems arise. Marina meets a priest and fellow exile, who is struggling with his vocation, while Neil renews his ties with a childhood friend, Jane. To the Wonder is directed by reclusive iconic filmmaker Terrence Malick, of Badlands, Days of Heaven, The Thin Red Line, The New World and The Tree of Life.
