It's seemed like a foregone conclusion for a while now that Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master would get a release this year in prime Oscar season, given the stellar cast-- Philip Seymour Hoffman, Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams-- the director's own pedigree, and the fact that it's coming from the Weinstein Company, the people who practically know how to mint Oscars. WIth no release date yet certain the movie's producer Megan Ellison reassured fans recently that it was on track for a release later this year, likely in October. Now that date has finally been guaranteed.

An update at Box Office Mojo has The Master set for release on October 12 this year, smack dab in the middle of Oscar season and also the New York Film Festival, which we previously speculated might host a premiere of the film-- or at least, a post-Cannes premiere, since the French festival also seems likely to go for Anderson's latest. Either way, it's a prime spot for what's got to be one of the most highly anticipated films of the year-- even if all you care about is The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises, when fall rolls around it's hard to imagine much better than a new film from Paul Thomas Anderson.
