Another Stunning Poster for P.T. Anderson's 'The Master' Unveiled
Wow. I'm almost at a loss of words. This right here might be the poster of the year. The Weinstein Company has debuted an absolutely stunning new theatrical poster for Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master, which has received an exorbitant amount of buzz recently thanks to a surprise screening last weekend. We already know the cast: Philip Seymour Hoffman, Amy Adams and Joaquin Phoenix lead the way, and the three of them are featured on this fabulously blue poster via Yahoo. This is the kind of brilliant, bold poster design work that I wish Hollywood would strive for more often. Simple, yet striking, get a closer look below.
Here's the full theatrical poster for PTA's The Master. If you haven't seen a trailer yet, be sure to watch here.
A 1950s-set drama centered on the relationship between a charismatic intellectual known as "the Master" whose faith-based organization begins to catch on, and a young drifter who becomes his right-hand man.
Paul Thomas Anderson (the man behind films like Boogie Nights, Magnolia, There Will Be Blood) wrote and directed The Master. The film follows Lancaster Dodd (Philip Seymour Hoffman) a charismatic leader who creates a new religion in the 1950's and his main disciple (Joaquin Phoenix), an alcoholic drifter named Freddie Sutton who becomes Dodd's closest follower, only to later break away from his teachings. The Master was secretly shown in 70mm at the Aero this month and will hit theaters starting September 14th.
