PT Anderson’s The Master Gets an Official Trailer


Resisting the temptation to pun, the first few teaser trailers for Paul Thomas Anderson’s upcoming film The Master look exquisite. So far it has been shrouded in mystery, but the first full-length trailer sheds some light on the plot of the sure-to-be epic film.

The trailer, once more scored by Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood, eerily covers Joaquin Phoenix’s struggles with the religion of his mentor Philip Seymour Hoffman, the titular Master. It also reveals the setting of the film, in the post war Truman and Eisenhower years.

The cinematography is once again gorgeous, continuing the new style that PT Anderson debuted with his last film, 2007′s There Will Be Blood. He has a few disorienting, ambivalent shots and scenes in the 2:38 trailer, but for the most part, it reveals quite a bit about the relationship between Phoenix’s veteran and Hoffman’s renaissance man.

The Master is set to land in theaters with a limited release in October, and it should be available in wide release by the end of 2012. I suggest catching it in theaters before the awards show rush when it’s nominated for a half-dozen Oscars.
