    No upcoming film from 2011 has movie nerds more stoked that Terrence Malick's "Tree of Life," which stars Brad Pitt, Jessica Chastain and Sean Penn. We've already been treated to a stunningly gorgeous  trailer, and now we've got a giant bucket of stills.

    The photos come from the Russian film site KinoPoisk, by way of Film Stage, and show Pitt, Chastain, Penn and what is presumably the titular "tree." 

    Here's the official synopsis:

    From Terrence Malick, the acclaimed director of such classic films as "Badlands," "Days of Heaven" and "The Thin Red Line," "The Tree of Life" is the impressionistic story of a Midwestern family in the 1950′s. The film follows the life journey of the eldest son, Jack, through the innocence of childhood to his disillusioned adult years as he tries to reconcile a complicated relationship with his father (Brad Pitt). Jack (played as an adult by Sean Penn) finds himself a lost soul in the modern world, seeking answers to the origins and meaning of life while questioning the existence of faith. Through Malick’s signature imagery, we see how both brute nature and spiritual grace shape not only our lives as individuals and families, but all life.

    The film opens May 27, and we'd be remiss if we didn't remind you yet again, it's got dinosaurs!
