First Look: Joaquin Phoenix & Josh Brolin from PTA's 'Inherent Vice'
Finally! Meet Doc Sportello - Joaquin Phoenix in Paul Thomas Anderson's new film Inherent Vice. Set in the 1970s, Doc is a marijuana-loving private eye and investigates the disappearance of a former girlfriend in this "Cheech and Chong"-esque film from PTA - in theaters this winter. While we've featured one set photo previously, we've also been waiting patiently for an actual first look that isn't a set photo, and we finally have this: a shot from Entertainment Weekly, but it's something, as we get to see that impressive hairdo on Joaquin. I'm anxiously awaiting this mostly because it's PTA but it also sounds like so much fun.
Here's the first look at Inherent Vice from Entertainment Weekly's Fall Movie Preview, found on EW.com:
Described as "a Cheech and Chong movie", Inherent Vice is an adaptation of Thomas Pynchon's novel about stoner private eye Doc Sportello in a 1970's "part noir, part psychedelic romp" detective story. In Los Angeles in 1970, drug-fueled detective Doc Sportello investigates the disappearance of a former girlfriend. It sounds like something totally different from PTA, almost closer to his roots of Boogie Nights than The Master or There Will Be Blood, but it should be fun anyway. Warner Bros will release PTA's Inherent Vice in theaters starting December 12th, 2014 this year, before going wide in January. Stay tuned for the trailer.
