Broad Green Pictures has announced that Terrence Malick’s star-studded “Knight of Cups” will arrive in theaters on March 4, 2016, while Sarah Silverman’s Sundance drama “I Smile Back” will hit theaters on October 23.
Additionally, “The Dark Horse” starring Cliff Curtis and James Rollerston, will be released Dec. 11, 2015.
“Knight of Cups” stars Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Natalie Portman, Frieda Pinto, Imogen Poots, Wes Bentley, Isabel Lucas and Teresa Palmer. Nicolas Gonda, Sarah Green and Ken Kao produced the film.
Bale stars as Rick, an uninspired screenwriter living on the event horizon of all the vice, and some of the virtues, Los Angeles has to offer. He is a slave to the Hollywood system; addicted to success but simultaneously despairing at the emptiness of his life. With the death of his brother Billy hanging over him like a shadow and his surviving brother down on his luck, Rick seeks distraction in the company of women. Women seem to know him better than he know himself, bringing him closer to the heart of things, closer to understanding his place. And while the parties, the dalliances, and the career remain unfulfilling – each woman, each man he’s met through the course of his life has served him in some way as a guide, a messenger. This visceral journey through one man’s City of Angels has just begun.
Adam Salky directed “I Smile Back” from a script by Paige Dylan, who adapted the book by Amy Koppelman. Josh Charles co-stars in the film, which was produced by Michael Harrop, Richard Arlock, Brian Koppelman, David Levien.
“I Smile Back” explores the life of Laney (Silverman), an attractive, intelligent suburban wife and devoted mother of two adorable children. She has the perfect husband (Charles), a pristine house, and a shiny SUV for carting the children to their next activity. However, just beneath the façade lie depression and disillusionment that send her careening into a secret world of reckless compulsion. Only very real danger will force her to face the painful root of her destructiveness and its crumbling effect on those she loves.
James Napier Robertson wrote and directed “The Dark Horse,” which was produced by Tom Hern. The film is an inspiring true story based on the life of charismatic and brilliant chess champion, Genesis Potini. His emotionally-charged story is about finding the courage to lead, despite his own struggles – finding purpose and hope in passing on his gift to the children of his community.
