Brad Pitt Traumatizes Children in 'Tree of Life' Clip

It's been six years since The New World, the last film from writer-director Terrence Malick, and it was seven years between that film the one before that, The Thin Red Line.  His latest endeavor, Tree of Life, starring Sean Penn, Brad Pitt, and Jessica Chastain is set to premiere at Cannes next week.  With this most worthy occasion on the way, check out the first official clip from the film, featuring the authoritarian 1950's father played by Pitt teaching his sons to fight.

The minute-long clip debuted over at the Huffington Post and, of course, the Colbuffington Re-Post.

If this clip doesn't do it for you, peep the rapturous trailer.

Terrence Malick not only has this film hitting theaters this summer, but an untitled project starring Ben Affleck, Rachel McAdams, and Javier Bardem already in post-production for a planned 2012 release.  If that project actually finds its way to theaters next year, it will be a remarkable change of pace for Malick.  Consider that his last film prior to 1998's The Thin Red Line was 1978's Days of HeavenCounting Tree of Life, the auteur has released only six films over a more than forty year career.

Tree of Life will be in limited release starting May 27th, and contrary to what you may read elsewhere, the film is not remarkable only because it contains glimpses of dinosaurs.
