Good news, everyone!  Paul Thomas Anderson’s ridiculously anticipated There Will Be Blood follow-up The Master will be hitting theaters a month earlier than expected.  Variety reports that The Weinstein Company has moved the pic up to September 14th from its previous release date of October 19th.  The film will open in limited release on the 14th before expanding the following weekend.  The possibly Scientology-centered pic stars Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman in what look to be two powerhouse performances.

The Master will open against Finding Nemo 3D, Resident Evil: Retribution, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and Liberal Arts on that September date.  Hit the jump for more, including release date news concerning another extremely promising pic, Killing Them Softly.

Additionally, Variety reports that The Weinstein Company has pushed director Andrew Dominik’s (The Assassination of Jesse James) drama Killing Them Softly back a month in lieu of the Master shuffle.  The Brad Pitt-starrer will now be released on October 19th opposite Paranormal Activity 4, Alex Cross, Not Fade Away, and The Loneliest Planet.  Though we’ve yet to see a trailer for the pic, it debuted at the Cannes Film Festival to a very positive response, and if Dominik’s Jesse James is any indication of his latest team-up with Pitt, we’re in for a real treat.

Because these films look so fantastic, I’ve embedded the incredible trailer for The Master and a clip from Killing Them Softly below for your viewing pleasure.
