Warner Bros has unveiled the first official trailer for Paul Thomas Anderson's latest film Inherent Vice, starring Joaquin Phoenix as private investigator Doc Sportello.

Here's the first full trailer for Paul Thomas Anderson's Inherent Vice, direct from Warner Bros' YouTube:
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. The cast is led by Joaquin Phoenix, but also includes Josh Brolin and Katherine Waterston. Warner Bros premieres the Paul Thomas Anderson film at the NY Film Festival now underway and it hits select theaters starting December 12th later this year, before going wide in January. "But if your Doc, it all may start to get a little peculiar after that." Stay tuned for more updates and reviews from NYFF. How does it look?
