Philip Seymour Hoffman The Master Second Teaser For Paul Thomas Anderson’s ‘The Master’   Features Philip Seymour Hoffman, Joaquin Phoenix & Amy Adams

Providing us with our first looks at Philip Seymour Hoffman’s Lancaster “The Master” Dodd and Amy Adam’s Mary Sue Dodd, The Weinstein Company has unveiled this second teaser video for Paul Thomas Anderson’s (There Will Be Blood, Magnolia) forthcoming film, ‘The Master,’ a Scientology inspired 1950s-set religious drama. I’m glad to see Jonny Greenwood in charge of the score for this movie. One of the major reasons I loved ‘There Would Be Blood’ was because of the chilling soundtrack. Love the music in this teaser as well.

‘The Master’ centres on the relationship between a charismatic intellectual known as “the Master” (Philip Seymour Hoffman) whose faith-based organization begins to catch on in America, and a young alcholic drifter (Joaquin Phoenix) who becomes his right-hand man only to begin questioning his manipulative mentor. “The Master” creates the faith-based organization after witnessing the horrors of WWII, in an attempt to rediscover who he is in post-war America. Laura Dern, Amy Adams, Jesse Plemons, Lena Endre and David Warshofsky also star in the film. As a huge Paul Thomas Anderson fan, this film is without a doubt one of my anticipated of 2012 – my hopes are sky-high! ‘The Master’ is released October 12th. You can watch the first teaser for the film here.

Written and directed by Academy Award nominee Paul Thomas Anderson (the acclaimed director of, There Will Be Blood, Magnolia and Boogie Nights), this story stars Academy Award winner Philip Seymour Hoffman (Capote) and Academy Award-nominee Joaquin Phoenix (Walk the Line). Set in America in the years following World War II, a charismatic intellectual (Hoffman) launches a faith-based organization and taps a young drifter (Phoenix) as his right-hand man. But as the faith begins to gain a fervent following, the onetime vagabond finds himself questioning the belief system he has embraced, and his mentor. A truly one-of-a-kind drama, which promises magnetic virtuoso performances, the film marks the fifth collaboration between Anderson and Hoffman, following Hard Eight, Boogie Nights, Magnolia, and Punch Drunk Love.
