David Fincher, Christopher Nolan promote 'Tree of Life'
You've got a world class director (Terrence Malick), a bona fide superstar (Brad Pitt) and critical prestige (Cannes' coveted Palme d'Or prize), but your film's still underperforming. What do you do? If you're Fox Searchlight, you get two popular (and populist) directors, whose films seem to connect with young movie-going audiences, to talk up the film.
David Fincher ("Social Network," the upcoming "Girl With the Dragon Tattoo") and Christopher Nolan ("Batman Begins," the upcoming "Dark Knight Rises") take a moment out of their busy schedules to sing the praises of Malick's "The Tree of Life," in theaters now. It's only the notoriously press-shy auteur's fifth film in nearly 40 years, so it's kind of a big deal.
