Their inaugural release is Jane Campion's romantic drama Bright Star (previous posts) (previous posts) and they'll follow it with Tree of Life starring Brad Pitt. The latter, Terence Malick's "mystical epic", was previously rumored to be delayed until 2010. There's no new release date but the Apparition press release indicates that it is arriving in 2009. Hopefully the release strategy will be less baffling than that afforded Malick's last picture The New World.
