Teaser Poster for Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master

The Master poster

Huffington Post has revealed the teaser poster for the next Paul Thomas Anderson film The Master, starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, Joaquin Phoenix and Amy Adams.

The film deals with Lancaster Dodds (Hoffman) a man who creates a religious movement in the 1950s. Some have said it is a thinly veiled musing on Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard, but the lid has been tightly sealed on the film to date.

As the source so nicely describes it, the poster is “a glass-half-full affair”. This is exactly what a teaser poster should be, teasing concepts and feelings rather than three big name actors mugging PhotoShop.

The film currently has a release date of 12 October 2012 in the US.
