Joaquin Phoenix is Crazy in Teaser for P.T. Anderson's 'The Master'
Our first look at the new film from P.T. Anderson just came last week in the form of a couple snapshots of the actual 65mm film frames, but now, five years after his last film There Will Be Blood, the writer and director is back with a teaser trailer for The Master. The film is said to follow the relationship between a charismatic intellectual known as "the Master" (played by Philip Seymour Hoffman) whose faith-based organization begins to catch on in America, and a young drifter (Joaquin Phoenix) who becomes his right-hand man. This trailer doesn't give that story up, but it feels like a true P.T. Anderson film. Watch!
Here's the first teaser trailer for P.T. Anderson's The Master, originally posted on YouTube:
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.
