[Teaser] – The Master

19 Jun

Nearly a month after that mesmerizing first teaser was released on the day some footage was shown at the Cannes Film Festival, we’re getting another teaser for Paul Thomas Anderson‘s The Master, which you can watch below.

Mr. Anderson is my favorite living director, and The Master has always been my most anticipated film of 2012, and these teasers are just making me even more excited, which I really didn’t think was possible.

The first trailer gave us a look at Joaquin Phoenix‘s character, a Navy officer named Freddie, who we knew would become the right-hand man to the titular master, Lancaster Dodd, who funds a religion that’s said to be based on scientology.

Well, this new teaser finally gives us our first look at Dodd himself, played by Philip Seymour Hoffman. And, like I said, these teasers are absolutely brilliant. The performance by Mr. Hoffman seems absolutely magnificent, one that gave me chills just from the teaser, thanks of course to that moody score by Johnny Greenwood, and we even get a glimpse at his wife, played by Amy Adams in what I’m sure will also be another great performance. I really can’t wait.

Written and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson; starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams, Laura Dern and Jesse Plemons.The Master opens October 12.
