"The Tree of Life" Trailer

Every bit as glorious as I remember it from when I saw Black Swan. The mix of the intimate and epic (and also confusing) imagery, along with the swelling music is all so beautiful and enticing. I'm sure that one of those CG shots was supposed to be from the view of someone/thing standing on an asteroid/moon floating in space. One thing's for sure, we've never seen Terrence Malick go this epic with his poetic and meditative style. Composer Alexandre Desplat said in a recent interview that he was going for a "trance-like" score, which would seem to fit the vibe of the trailer (along with Emmanuel Lubezeki's stunning images). The real question here, though is this: are we still getting that much-whispered about dinosaur scene?
