Malick sure likes to take his time. 3 years is better than 20 I suppose. This is my most anticipated movie at the moment.

Disappointed. Thought this was the next Thor movie ...

Thor: Radegund

New title: A Hidden Life
It is currently 3 hours long. https://www.festival-cannes.com/en/i...cial-selection

Radegund was a much better titled, IMO.

James Newton Howard will score:

So this was filmed back in 2016. A lot of time in post-production.

Michael Nyqvist and Bruno Ganz have died since filming this.

I'm looking forward to this.

My most aniticpated movie. However, A Hidden Life is such a shitty title. Radegund was better.

Unfortunately, a name that people are unsure of takes a good 10%-20% off the box office. Even in the case of Terrance Malick.

Re: A Hidden Life (2019, D: Terrence Malick) -- WWII film

EXCLUSIVE: Terrence Malick’s Cannes Competition drama A Hidden Life has been hailed as an impressive return to form for the U.S. writer-director. Buyers immediately began circling after the film’s debut here yesterday and Fox Searchlight has come out on top for U.S and a number of international markets in a highly competitive situation.

According to sources, deal is pegged at around $12-14M and was hatched overnight with CAA Media Finance and Mister Smith. Paramount, Focus, A24, Netflix and others were among buyers hot on the trail. The deal is one of the biggest ever at a market for a movie shot in Germany.

The English and German-language film charts the moving true story of Austrian Franz Jägerstätter (played by August Diel), a conscientious objector who refused to fight for the Nazis during World War II. Matthias Schoenaerts, Michael Nyqvist, Valerie Pachner, Jurgen Prochnow, Alexander Fehling and the late Bruno Ganz also star.

A Hidden Life is Malick’s first film to play in Cannes Competition since 2011 drama The Tree Of Life and many critics are calling it his best film since that Oscar-nominee. Malick attended the premiere yesterday which was greeted by a roughly five-minute standing ovation.

Mister Smith is handling foreign sales. France, Germany and Scandinavia were among the few markets already gone. Producers are Grant Hill, Dario Bergesio and Elisabeth Bentley. The film was in post-production for almost three years as the meticulous auteur spent his time getting the movie just as he wanted.

Cannes business has been solid so far. The excellent quality of the festival lineup has helped augment business in the market, which is awash with packages. Projects such as Moonfall, Down Under Cover, Operation Mincemeat, The Climb, Les Miserables, Sorry We Missed You, Harry Haft and The Power Of The Dog are just a handful of those to have garnered serious attention from buyers.

Festival titles such as Rocketman, Pedro Almodovar’s Pain And Glory, and hard-hitting French drama Les Miserables are among those being talked about as potential awards season contenders. Robert Eggers’ The Lighthouse has also drawn raves. Palme d’Or entrants Pain And Glory and Les Miserables are likely to feature in some form come this weekend’s prize ceremony.

Zero faith in Malick at this point. I'll check this out on TV sometime.

What does the third Thor movie have to do with Malick’s WWII flick?

Fox Searchlight’s first Cannes acquisition under parent Disney, Terrence Malick’s A Hidden Life, will open on Dec. 13.

The pic, which Searchlight snapped up for $12M-$14M, tells the story of Austrian farmer-turned-WWII conscientious objector Franz Jägerstätter, who refused to fight for the Nazis. The production, which cost in the high single digits, is reportedly the director’s longest production ever at three years from pre-production to final cut.

Searchlight released Malick’s Tree of Life, which starred Brad Pitt and a then fresh-face Jessica Chastain, on the heat of its Cannes Palme d’Or win in the summer of 2011 making $13.3M and ultimately notching three Oscar nominations for Best Picture, Malick as director and Emmanuel Lubezki’s DP work.

Coming out of Cannes, A Hidden Life landed a 74% fresh Rotten Tomatoes rating from 42 reviews. The pic stars August Diehl as Jägerstätter, Valerie Pachner as his wife, and the late Michael Nyqvist and Bruno Ganz. Grant Hill, Josh Jeter, Elisabeth Bentley and Dario Bergesio produce.

Based on real events, from visionary writer-director Terrence Malick, A HIDDEN LIFE is the story of an unsung hero, Franz Jägerstätter, who refused to fight for the Nazis in World War II. When the Austrian peasant farmer is faced with the threat of execution for treason, it is his unwavering faith and his love for his wife Fani and children that keeps his spirit alive.
