New TV Spot for Paul Thomas Anderson’s THE MASTER

     August 30, 2012


A new TV spot for writer/director Paul Thomas Anderson’s highly anticipated drama The Master has been released.  The film tells the story of a charismatic intellectual (Philip Seymour Hoffman) who creates his own religion and the drifter (Joaquin Phoenix) he trains to be his right-hand man.  This new TV spot is in keeping with the ominous tone set by the other trailers and clips as it opens with Hoffman’s character talking about “the source of all creation” with bombastic enthusiasm.  The interactions between Hoffman and Phoenix look killer, and this TV spot is yet another reminder of the ridiculously promising films coming our way in the next few months.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  The film also stars Amy Adams and Jesse PlemonsThe Master opens in limited release on September 14th and expands everywhere on September 21st.

Via Fandango.

Here’s the synopsis for The Master:

A striking portrait of drifters and seekers in post World War II America, Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master unfolds the journey of a Naval veteran (Joaquin Phoenix) who arrives home from war unsettled and uncertain of his future — until he is tantalized by The Cause and its charismatic leader (Philip Seymour Hoffman).
