Paul Thomas Anderson has a new film called The Master
That is all the introduction you should need:
In a similar move to his previous film, There Will Be Blood
, this trailer boasts fantastic dialog-as-narration, a fierce male lead, and a "home made" vibe that lacks any production company logos.
Also like There Will Be Blood
, it looks absolutely stunning. Set in the 1950s and (rumored to be) loosely based on the life of L. Ron Hubbard, The Master
was shot on 65mm film stock, a rarity in the dying days of film when the Red and Alexa digital cameras roam the earth.The Master
stars Philip Seymour Hoffman (absent from this trailer) and Joaquin Phoenix, who seems to be living up to his last name after some confusing behavior, a public announcement that he was retiring from acting, and the half prank/half box office dud I'm Still Here
seemed to kill his film career.
