The first look trailer for Terrence Malick‘s Voyage of Time was released on Thursday and you can see why its been in production for more than thirty years. The documentary is a celebration of the universe, displaying the whole of time, from its start to its final collapse. It will examine all that occurred to prepare the world that stands before us now: science and spirit, birth, and death, the grand cosmos and the minute life systems of our planet.
“The past, the present, the future,” Pitt says in the trailer. “Experience the unfolding of time. The universe, billions of years in the making. Our journey, our destiny.”
The multiple-award-winning director created two versions of this film, a 40-minute IMAX version featuring the narration by Academy Award Winner Brad Pitt and a 35 mm feature-length edition narrated by fellow Academy Award winner Cate Blanchett. Both will feature an orchestral score from Italian composer Ennio Morricone, who most recently took home an Academy Award for his score of the Quentin Tarantino film, The Hateful Eight.
Voyage of Time is a companion piece to Malick’s 2011 film, Palme D’Or winner The Tree of Life and will be in theaters on October 7.
