THE MASTER Official Trailer

Here it is. Finally. The first official trailer for what is likely to be P.T. Anderson‘s sixth masterpiece (6 for 6 ain’t bad, eh?). There are some familiar scenes cropping up here, with maybe a few extra seconds added in, giving them more depth. And many of the new scenes are filled with violence…There Will be Fisticuffs! October cannot come any sooner…if you think Twilight fans are obsessed…well, you’ve probably not heard me rant on P.T. Anderson’s genius. Just ask my wife…or don’t, if you’re not a fan of eye-rolling.

If you know enough about the plot, you may notice some details bubbling up in this trailer. Ominous conversations, seemingly held behind Joaquin Phoenix’s back, about the character’s behavior give this trailer it’s eerie quality. These are some powerful people, willing to control others…much like Scientologists! Yeah, I said it. Come at me, Cruise!

Anyway. Enjoy, fellow cinephiles!

The Synopsis:

Following World War II, a charismatic intellectual (Hoffman) launches a faith-based organization and taps a young drifter (Phoenix) as 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, as well as his mentor.
