Ladies and gents, that’s right. Your eyes do not deceive you; a trailer has been released for Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master. Well, sort of. More of a teaser. Producer Megan Ellison swooped in with financing last year which really got the film secured. Considering the giant nod it gives something, it’s a dream come true it got made.
Paul Thomas Anderson’s follow-up to the outa-the-park homerun There Will Be Blood, The Master stars Philip Seymour Hoffman as a war vet who comes home broken, torn and confused from WWII. As a writer, he starts to chronicle his thoughts out and movement on his belief system sets off, with Joaquin Phoenix as his right hand man.
A few weeks ago, we got this clip of Joaquin Phoenix doing his thing in a montage of footage. It gave us a taste of what was in store for us, and we liked what we saw.
The Master has a release date set for October 2012.
