It’s finally here. Today we have our first look at footage from Paul Thomas Anderson‘s highly-anticipated upcoming feature The Master. In the form of a teaser trailer, we hear Joaquin Phoenix being interrogated about a previous event, filled with enticing imagery. The period drama stars Philip Seymour Hoffman, Amy Adams, Laura Dern, David Warshofsky, Rami Malek, Jesse Plemons, Madisen Beaty, Joshua Close and Fiona Dourif. Check out the teaser below via the official site.
Hoffman leads the film as a man “who returns after witnessing the horrors of WWII and tries to rediscover who he is in post-war America. He creates a belief system, something that catches on with other lost souls.” Joaquin Phoenix plays Freddie, “a young drifter who is swept up in the movement and becomes Hoffman’s character’s lieutenant. As everything builds, however, Freddie begins to question the system he’s helped to create.”
The Master hits theaters on October 12th, 2012 .
