New Trailer for Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master

There's little doubt that Paul Thomas Anderson's new movie is about Scientology's L. Ron Hubbard
It's been five whole years since Paul Thomas Anderson's last movie, the near-perfect There Will Be Blood, but based on the new trailer for his new project, The Master, the writer-director seems to be still be at the top of his game. Starring Joaquin Phoenix (his first starring role since 2008), Amy Adams, and Philip Seymour Hoffman, the movie tells the story of a charismatic intellectual (Hoffman) who launches a faith-based organization after World War II. A young drifter (Phoenix) becomes his right-hand man, but as the faith begins to gain a fervent following, the onetime vagabond finds himself questioning the belief system he has embraced, and his mentor.
