If your mouth was similarly agape when viewing the brand-new theatrical trailer for Paul Thomas Anderson‘s The Master, chances are you’ll want to dive deeper into each frame of this gorgeous-looking work of art. Shot by cinematographer Mihai Malaimare Jr., the crew used the large-frame 65mm film (also used in Lawrence of Arabia and 2001: A Space Odyssey), giving an unparalleled sense of detail and clarity. Mixed with the wide aspect ratio of 2.20:1 and Anderson incorporating a 1960s-70s timeless aesthetic, this one is a stunner. I’ll wait no further, as one can see over 90 high-resolution stills below for the film starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, Joaquin Phoenix and Amy Adams.
The Master opens on October 12th.
