The Tree Of Life Has A UK Release Date!
Terrence Malick's latest hits May 4

Terrence Malick's The Tree Of Life finally, finally has a release date! And what's more, we here in Blighty get to see it before any other territory in the world, as it hits these shores on May 4. Hey! Let's have a national holiday the Friday before just to mark the occasion!

The film focuses on Sean Penn's Jack, a modern man, and his parents - played by Brad Pitt and Jessica Chastain - and childhood. According to the official synopsis, "The story ends in hope, acknowledging the beauty and joy in all things, in the everyday and above all in the family—our first school—the only place that most of us learn the truth about the world and ourselves, or discover life’s single most important lesson, of unselfish love."

And there are dinosaurs.

The Tree Of Life will be up against Water For Elephants, starring Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon, which opens the same day, and Joe Wright's Hanna two days later. But who cares about box office? Malick is on his way - hurrah!

Update: Following something of a kerfuffle on some American websites overnight, we have double-checked with Icon that this remains the release date, and it is definitely May 4.

L: Darth Marenghi The pettiness of Wells in particular is ludicrous, especially now that he's gloating on his blog about it: http://hollywood-elsewhere.com/2011/03/icon_kicked_to.p hp What a clown.ote] What a cock! The attitude is shameful. More
