The 2013 awards season is behind us, but the Oscars’ man of the hour isn’t about to disappear from the spotlight. Ben Affleck will next be on the big screen in just over a month, in Terrence Malick’s follow-up to his Academy Award-nominated Tree of Life.
EW has an exclusive poster for the To the Wonder, another dreamy, mystical installment in Malick’s collection of films that have amassed a cult following since he first hit the art-film scene in the 1970s. His latest features Affleck as Neil, a man torn between two women: Marina (Olga Kurylenko), the European woman who moved to the United States to be with him, and Jane (Rachel McAdams), the old flame from his hometown whom he reconnects with when his relationship with Marina starts to fray.
This new one-sheet features Affleck and Kurylenko embracing in front of Mont Saint-Michel, the small, rocky island that inspired the film’s title: Located off the coast of Normandy, France, Mont Saint-Michel is often called “The Wonder of the Western World.” Check out the poster below.
To the Wonder, which also stars Javier Bardem, opens in U.S. theaters on April 12. The release follows premieres at last year’s Venice and Toronto Film Festivals.
