Inherent Vice the latest film from genius auteur filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson, won’t be arriving in theaters until December of this year, but this is the week that audiences get their first good look at it. The movie is set to make its world premiere at the New York Film Festival this weekend, but just in case you’re not one of the lucky few that will be at that screening, Warner Bros. has just released the first official trailer online.

The seventh feature from Paul Thomas Anderson and an adaptation of the book from famous recluse author Thomas Pynchon, Inherent Vice centers on Doc Sportello (Joaquin Phoenix), a pothead private detective living in Los Angeles in the early 1970s. The story begins as the hippy gumshoe gets roped into a case involving his ex-girlfriend (Katherine Waterston), who believes that her millionaire boyfriend’s wife and her lover are planning to have him committed to an insane asylum. Of course, things don’t stay as simple as all that, and it’s not long before Doc finds himself tangled in a web of crime involving Nazi land developers, missing saxophone players, dead bodyguards and a whole lot more.

I’m honestly left just a bit speechless by this trailer. Anderson has spent the last few years making deep and serious films like There Will Be Blood and The Master, but Inherent Vice looks like it will be much lighter in tone, akin to Punch Drunk Love and Boogie Nights. The entire cast looks phenomenal, but it’s ultimately Joaquin Phoenix’s performance I am most looking forward to. Really, this fall says it all:
