Watch: The Master’s Final Trailer

PT Anderson is one of the best auteurs in Hollywood right now, which is why we at The Airspace are hanging on every trailer release for his upcoming piece The Master. (Here you can watch the teaser trailer, the first trailer, and the official trailer).

We did not, however, cover The Master’s 70 mm news and its early showing. Basically, the 70 mm version is only hitting the screen at Chicago’s Music Box Theatre, one of the few movies houses able to handle the 70 mm film stock. 70 mm stock, expensive and time consuming, is hardly used for shooting, and in an era of digital projecting, few theatres could otherwise show it. But the Music Box Theatre was able to, and it showed the film to roughly 700 fans. And the reviews were excellent. Deemed by most as a beautifully composed and emotionally complex, though somewhat tiring film, it will certainly do well during award season—but appears to be the fair for more film critics than average movie-goer.

The final trailer for this sure-to-be-Masterpiece puts us in the place of the titular master himself, Philip Seymour Hoffman’s Lancaster Dodd. His perspective serves to tease and advance the already established parallels to Scientology, and they are backed by a persistent pounding against a window, with its own parallels to Jonny Greenwood’s oft-instrumental, tribal scores which are soundtracking the film. We also see more of Jesse Plemons—the actor who plays our beloved Breaking Bad’s Todd—as Lancaster’s son.

The Master will have a limited US release on September 14.
