It should be impossible for a movie to be both enthralling and boring, but somehow 'To the Wonder' pulls it off. It contains sights -- of picturesque Oklahoma sunsets and impossibly serene European beaches -- so beautiful they awaken you to the glory of the world around us. And it also contains passages -- of Ben Affleck and Olga Kurylenko running and twirling through fields, and then rolling around in bed, and then fighting and screaming, and then running and twirling in that field again -- so repetitive and tiresome that they nearly lull you to sleep.

Terrence Malick's latest film 'To The Wonder' may have gotten a boost from this year's Oscars, as the film stars Ben Affleck, who just won best picture for 'Argo.' Will that get more people in the theaters this spring when the film opens? It seems unlikely, but we can't wait, regardless. Now there's a new trailer for the film.

Terrence Malick is known for taking very long breaks in between projects (there was a 20-year gap between 'Days of Heaven' and 'The Thin Red Line'). Though, after last year's 'The Tree of Life,' the director has evidently decided to churn them out with a vengeance, starting with 2013's 'To the Wonder,' for which we have the first trailer. Take a look after the break!

Though it's about to screen at the Venice and Toronto Film feativals, we still don't know much about Terrence Malick's 'To the Wonder.' Here's what we suspect: Beautiful cinematography, voice-over narration, meditative tone, car chase (possibly two or more). Now we've got a quote from one of its stars and a synopsis.

Terrence Malick's editing process is such that Adrien Brody went from being the lead in 'The Thin Red Line' to barely making an appearance in the film. Not to mention performances by Bill Pullman, Mickey Rourke, or Billy Bob Thorton's voiceover work, all of which were scrapped from the film. 'To the Wonder,' his latest film, may have left Rachel Weisz on the cutting room floor.
