Brian Dennehy, Antonio Banderas, Freida Pinto, Wes Bentley, Isabel Lucas, Teresa Palmer, Imogen Poots and Armin Mueller-Stahl also star in the new film, with Ben Kingsley serving as narrator.
Knight Of Cups appears to show Bale's character Rick partying a bit too much and struggling to keep various relantionships alive, however, the film's official synopsis is typically avant garde and cloaked in mystery.
It reads as follows: "Once there was a young prince whose father, the king of the East, sent him down into Egypt to find a pearl. But when the prince arrived, the people poured him a cup. Drinking it, he forgot he was the son of a king, forgot about the pearl and fell into a deep sleep. Rick’s (Bale) father used to read this story to him as a boy. The road to the East stretches out before him. Will he set forth?"
The film will premiere in February at Berlin Film Festival, but does not have a confirmed UK release date as yet.
