New Theatrical Trailer for The Master Starring Philip Seymour Hoffman
08.29.12 by BrentJS
Whether or not writer-director Paul Thomas Anderson's (There Will Be Blood) upcoming drama, The Master, is based on Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard's life and experiences or not, the new theatrical trailer that was just released is tantalizing and mesmerizing enough that we almost don't care about the origins of the movie. With the sound of Joaquin Phoenix pounding rhythmically on a pane of glass playing throughout the majority of the trailer and Philip Seymour Hoffman pontificating on the the true nature of human beings while sexually suggestive and violent imagery cascades in rapid succession, we found ourselves reaching a fever pitch of excitement and interest for the movie by trailer's end. Good thing The Weinstein Company moved the release of the movie up by a month!
The Master also stars Amy Adams, Laura Dern, and Patty McCormack. It opens in Los Angeles and New York on Sept. 14th.
