Following the release of the teaser poster yesterday, Yahoo! Movies has released a full trailer for Paul Thomas Anderson’s new film The Master, starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, Joaquin Phoenix and Amy Adams. It should come as no surprise that it looks brilliant.
A charismatic man returns home to America from World War II and forms a faith-based organization. He is now known as “the Master” and his belief system is catching on. As the group is gaining momentum and adding new converts, a young drifter arrives and becomes the Masters invaluable aid.
The film follows the deliberately styled There Will Be Blood by five years, and Anderson’s signature is all over these brief precious moments. Like that previous film, the joy will be in the unraveling of what looks to be a dark enigma wrapped in a slick presentation.
The film currently has a release date of 12 October 2012 in the US.
