We've already gotten to see some footage from Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master. Following a footage presentation at this year's Cannes Film Festival, two short teasers were released online that introduced us to the film's two central characters: Freddie Sutton (Joaquin Phoenix) and Lancaster Dodd (Philip Seymour Hoffman). Each teaser did an astounding job painting a picture of who these two men are, one a drunk and a drifter, the other a scholar and a writer. Now those two sides have come together for The Master's first theatrical trailer and the result is outstanding.

The preview has arrived online via Yahoo and you can check it our for yourself below!

Is anyone really surprised that this movie looks utterly brilliant? Anderson is already established as one of the great modern day auteurs and we've been waiting with bated breath for this project since it was announced in summer 2010. Now all it has to do is live up to our expectations.

The film follows Phoenix's Freddie as he struggles in the post-war 1950s. Lost and alone, he discovers The Master a.k.a. Dodd, who has begun his own faith-based organization and is willing to take Freddie under his wing as his right-hand man. In addition to Phoenix and Hoffman, The Master also stars Amy Adams (as Lancaster's wife, Mary Sue Dodd), Laura Dern and Jesse Plemons. The movie will be have a limited release on October 12 and you can read more about it in our Blend Film Database.
