Ah, another Paul Thomas Anderson movie. Has it already been five years since “There Will be Blood”? Yes, indeed. Unlike most directors, PTA takes his time with movies, and “The Master” comes five years after “Blood”, and ten years after “Punch Drunk Love”. If you’re a fan of the man like I am, then you’ve been waiting for this, so here it is. Enjoy the first full trailer for “The Master”, which finally reveals the full plot of the movie in all its PTA splendor.
A 1950s-set drama centered on the relationship between a charismatic intellectual known as “the Master” whose faith-based organization begins to catch on in America, and a young drifter who becomes his right-hand man.
Starring Amy Adams, Joaquin Phoenix, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Rami Malek, Laura Dern, Jesse Plemons, and Kevin J. O’Connor.
The Master comes forth October 12, 2012.
