The first teaser for The Master, the highly anticipated new drama written, directed and co-produced by Paul Thomas Anderson - his last film was There Will Be Blood in 2007 - has been released online at TheMasterFilm.com this morning. PTA regular Phillip Seymour Hoffman headlines the cast, but The Master also welcomes the return to the screen for Joaquin Phoenix. Amy Adams and Laura Dern also star.
The film's premise has been kept pretty quiet but I believe it tells the story of a charismatic intellectual (Hoffman) who launches a faith-based organisation following World War II. A drifter (Phoenix) becomes his right-hand man as the faith begins to gain a fervent following.
The Master currently has a release date of 12 October 2012 in the U.S. Here is the teaser. What are your thoughts?
