Cinematical has received four brand new exclusive images from the film Knowing, which you can check out -- along with several previously-released images -- in the gallery below. Directed by Alex Proyas (Dark City) and starring Nicolas Cage, Knowing is an action-thriller about a professor who stumbles across terrifying predictions about the future inside a time capsule, and then sets out to prevent them from coming true. The very adorable Rose Byrne also stars, and Richard Kelly (Donnie Darko) is credited as one of the film's screenwriters. I've been diggin' the creepy vibe in this one for awhile now, and I like Proyas as a director -- so I may take a chance right this second and predict that Knowing will be worth the watch when the film hits theaters on March 20.
Check out the new images in the gallery below, and the trailer after the jump.

In 1958, as part of the dedication ceremony for a new elementary school, a group of students is asked to draw pictures to be stored in a time capsule. But one mysterious girl fills her sheet of paper with rows of apparently random numbers instead.
Fifty years later, a new generation of students examines the capsule's contents and the girl's cryptic message ends up in the hands of young CALEB KOESTLER. But it is Caleb's father, professor JOHN KOESTLER (Nicolas Cage), who makes the startling discovery that the encoded message predicts with pinpoint accuracy the dates, death tolls and coordinates of every major disaster of the past 50 years. As John further unravels the document's chilling secrets, he realizes the document foretells three additional events-the last of which hints at destruction on a global scale and seems to somehow involve John and his son. When John's attempts to alert the authorities fall on deaf ears, he takes it upon himself to try to prevent more destruction from taking place.
With the reluctant help of DIANA WAYLAND (Rose Byrne) and ABBY WAYLAND, the daughter and granddaughter of the now-deceased author of the prophecies, John's increasingly desperate efforts take him on a heart-pounding race against time until he finds himself facing the ultimate disaster-and the ultimate sacrifice.
