Thy Kingdom Come Trailer: Terrence Malick’s To the Wonder Gets a Unique Spin-Off

thykingdomcome

Terrence Malick is known for (among other things) his ruthlessness in the editing room, which sometimes leads him to cut A-list actors out of his films entirely. Although Javier Bardem did manage to make the final cut of To the Wonder (he played a priest questioning his faith), there was a lot of extra footage that did not end up in the movie. Now this extra footage is being reassembled into an entirely new spin-off called Thy Kingdom Come by photojournalist Eugene Richards, who went with Bardem to the town of Bartlesville, Oklahoma to interview real people about their lives while in character. It looks to be an interesting mix of fiction and non-fiction and should be a unique companion piece to Malick’s film. Thy Kingdom Come premieres at SXSW next month; check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.
