The Master Gets A Final, Extended Trailer
It's rare for a new trailer to be released once a film has already reached theaters nationwide, but as anyone who has seen it can attest to, The Master is no ordinary film. A fascinating, complex movie about cults, the post-war era and relationships, the new work from Paul Thomas Anderson isn't exactly standard blockbuster fare, but it's still managed to find success, setting a box office record in limited release by making a per-theater average of $145,949 in its opening weekend (edging out Wes Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom, which previously held the record with $130,749 per theater). And now the people behind the film would like to say thank you.
A brand new, extended trailer for The Master has been release online, and not only does it run nearly four and a half minutes, but it also contains scenes that weren't in the theatrical cut. The preview is titled "Last One / Thank You" and you can watch it below.
Written and directed by P.T. Anderson and released by The Weinstein Company, The Master follows the journey of Freddie Quell (Joaquin Phoenix), a World War II veteran, alcoholic, sex-obsessed and mentally unstable man struggling to adapt to post war life. This starts to change when he meets and begins a friendship with Lancaster Dodd (Philip Seymour Hoffman), a charismatic man who heads up his own religious organization called The Cause. The film is currently in theaters nationwide and you can see more from it, including trailers and stills, in our Blend Film Database.
