The past few weeks have been chock-full of great news concerning Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master. First we got a fantastic full trailer, then The Weinstein Company moved the film’s released date up a full month, and just this past weekend Anderson surprised some lucky fans in Santa Monica with the first premiere screening of the film. Now a brand new poster for the film has been released that’s both great and slightly puzzling. The first poster was modeled after a bottle of wine and we assumed this alluded to Joaquin Phoenix’s character’s alcoholism, but I’m not as certain regarding the importance of this kaleidoscope design. Nevertheless, it’s fantastic to look at and I imagine it’ll make more sense once we’ve seen the film.
Hit the jump to check out the poster. The film also stars Philip Seymour Hoffman, Amy Adams, Laura Dern, and Jesse Plemons. The Master opens on September 14th.
