Terrence Malick's Second VR Film Debuts This Week

Terrence Malick's Second VR Film Debuts This Week

Knight of Cups and Badlands director Terrence Malick is soon set to debut his second VR film.

The piece, named Evolver, will premiere as one of 10 projects at VR Days Europe in Amsterdam today, Screen Daily reports. Produced with the help of House of Secrets, the experience studies the lives of humans all the way from birth to death. Judging by the director’s most recent work, which includes breezy existential pieces like Song to Song, it’s sure to be a trip.

Perhaps most excitingly for film fans, though, the piece features music from Jonny Greenwood, the lead guitarist of Radiohead and composer of soundtracks for films like There Will Be Blood and You Were Never Really Here who was recently nominated for an Oscar for his work on Phantom Thread. Brilliantly, there’s also music from Wu-Tang Clan.

Malick’s first VR piece, Together, made the rounds at festivals like SXSW and Tribeca earlier this year. He’s easily one of the best-known and most influential directors working in VR right now alongside the likes of The Revenant’s Alejandro González Iñárritu.

Other projects being revealed at VR Days include Inside Out VR from Charlotte Bruneau and Cosmos Within Us from Tupac Martir. Films are being hosted in collaboration with the Rotterdam Film Festival. The event also includes talks from members of Unity, Beat Games and more.
