Brad Pitt Narrates Gorgeous Imagery in First Trailer for Terrence Malick’s ‘Voyage of Time’
Malick’s eighth film, which has been 30 years in the making, is finally arriving in theaters this fall. Voyage of Time is the filmmaker’s first documentary and is a collection of stunning photography and special effects that tells the story of the origin of the universe. It’s sort of like Neil deGrasse Tyson’s Cosmos meets Baraka, but Malick style, which means soft whispery voiceover paired with majestic music. If you’re not sold yet, the film is scored by Ennio Morricone.
The filmmaker has been working on Voyage of Time since the ‘70s when the project was initially titled Qasida and then Q. Some of the footage ended up in the origin of the universe sequence from The Tree of Life. The brief trailer for the doc is a stunning display of outer space imagery, cascading waterfalls, desert rocks and a giant squid swimming through the sea. IMAX released a long synopsis and poster earlier this week, but check out the short synopsis below:
Voyage Of Time is a one-of-a-kind celebration of life and the grand history of the cosmos, transporting audiences into a vast yet up-close-and personal journey that spans the eons from the Big Bang to the dinosaur age to our present human world … and beyond.
But after waiting 30 years Malick won’t just give us one film. Voyage of Time will get two theatrical versions, the first of which will be released in IMAX on October 7 and narrated by Pitt (that’s the one the above trailer is for). The second will be a 90-minute 35mm version narrated by Cate Blanchett, so you really can’t go wrong either way. Malick fan or not, Voyage of Time will be a gorgeous experience you’ll want to see on the big screen.
