The trailer for Terrence Malick's long-anticipated drama 'Tree of Life' will be playing in front of 'Black Swan' in select theaters, starting today, which is great for people going to see 'Black Swan', but us internet nerds need a little lovin' too (nudge ... Fox Searchlight ... nudge). Due out May 27th, and starring Brad Pitt and Sean Penn, among others, the story is said to revolve around a family with three boys in the 1950s -- and it follows "a Midwestern boy's journey from the innocence of childhood to his disillusioned adult years as a "lost soul in the modern world", and his quest to regain meaning in life," according to one early description of the under-wraps plot.

Terrence Malick doesn't make all that many films, and when he does they're usually something pretty special. As such, the arrival of a new one is sort of a big deal. So, for now, we'll just have to settle for these brand new images, courtesy of the LA Times, who have a full trailer description on their site for those who simply cannot wait. Check out one more image of Sean Penn after the jump, and new photos from Kevin Smith's 'Red State' as well.
