The official teaser for Terrence Malick's To the Wonder is out, and it's being described on Twitter by folks like New York's Matt Zoller Seitz as very "Malick-y." So what does that actually mean? Well, for one thing the trailer doesn't really tell you much of what the movie is about. There are a number of beautiful images—of churches, of fields, of Rachel McAdams—and a voiceover from Javier Bardem about the nature of love. We do know a brief synopsis from IMDb: "After visiting Mont Saint-Michel, Marina [Olga Kurylenko] and Neil [Ben Affleck] 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 [McAdams]." As far as we can tell this film, set to be released in 2014, contains no dinosaurs, though we're putting nothing past Malick these days.
