Inherent Vice Trailer

"Doc may not be a do-gooder, but he's done good." 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. The trailer definitely looks, and feels, and sounds like it's straight out of the 70's and oh my does it look fantastic. The outstanding cast includes Reese Witherspoon, Jena Malone, Josh Brolin, Owen Wilson, Benicio Del Toro, Michael K. Williams, Eric Roberts, Maya Rudolph and many others. Really, this is the one we've all been waiting for, and it makes everything look oh so much fun again. Fire it up, and we mean that blunt, before watching this. Oh it's going to be so much fun. Premiering at NYFF soon.

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?

I've concluded Joaquin is not human, his acting skills are literally out of this world. I'm onboard all the way, what a stellar cast, decent story, good mixture of comedy, should be a fun watch.

The atmosphere that feels so particular to the decade of the 70's is what really drives this trailer for me. If anyone really knows how to capture a time period in a film it's Paul Thomas Anderson.

Look at PTA elevating Pynchon's work. LOOK AT IT!!!

It looks like it might be this generation's Big Lebowski. And I mean that in the best possible way.
