THE MASTER to Play in Competition at the Venice Film Festival; May Head to Toronto International Film Festival

     July 30, 2012


For a moment, it looked like Paul Thomas Anderson‘s The Master was gearing up for a premiere at Fantastic Fest (which runs from September 20 – 27th), but then we learned that The Weinstein Company had bumped up the movie’s release date from October 19th to September 14th. However, the movie may still run some of the festival circuit.

Deadline reports the film, which is reportedly influenced by the story of L. Ron Hubbard‘s creation of Scientology, will play in competition at the Venice Film Festival.  The movie will get a “prime Saturday slot”, so look for reviews on the flick to start coming out on September 1st (Venice runs from August 29 – September 8th).  The movie will likely bypass the Telluride Film Festival (August 31 – September 3rd), but Deadline says there is a “real possibility” of the movie showing up at the Toronto International Film Festival (September 6 – 16th), which would be awesome since I’ll be there.  Deadline also reports the movie is opening on September 21st, and I’m not sure if that’s a new release date or an error on Deadline’s part.  If you haven’t seen the awesome trailer for The Master, hit the jump.  The film stars Philip Seymour Hoffman, Joaquin Phoenix, and Amy Adams.
