New Trailer For The Master Explains That Man Is Not An Animal
Now that we've reached the end of August it means that Oscar season is about to begin, and certainly one of the leaders of the pack is Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master. While there certainly is some serious competition this year from directors like Steven Spielberg, Kathryn Bigelow, Ang Lee, and Tom Hooper, everything we've seen from Anderson's latest has been nothing short of jaw-dropping. And the latest trailer does absolutely nothing to change that record:

The greatest thing about The Master, though? We don't have to wait much longer to see it. In addition to the preview screenings that have been popping up (such as this one in Los Angeles earlier this month), the film is set to have a gala screening at this year's Toronto International Film Festival and then will be in theaters shortly thereafter on September 21st. And, really, thank god because I'm not sure I can really wait any longer.
Both written and directed by Anderson, the story follows a destitute, drunk war veteran named Freddie Sutton (Joaquin Phoenix) who has completely lost his way in life. This changes, however, when he meets Lancaster Dodd (Philip Seymour Hoffman), a charismatic man who has begun his own faith-based organization. Lancaster takes Freddie under his wing as his right hand man, but the dynamic of their relationship begins to change when Freddie begins to question his mentor's teachings. The Master co-stars Amy Adams, Jesse Plemons, and Laura Dern and you can read more about it in our Blend Film Database.
