Just as you start to get excited by all the new trailers, along comes Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master and steals the show.
The Master follows the eponymous man in the 1950s, who begins a religious movement that gains followers across the US. It's not based on anything officially, but you can bet your ass it rhymes with Schmientology.
Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams and Phillip Seymour Hoffman star, although we only get to see Phoenix in this short glimpse. He's a bit messed up. Has violent episodes. Can't remember them afterwards. Let's call him Com Truise. The beginning of a flashback structure for the film? Hoffamsn' The Master would know. But there's no sign of him yet.
After lots of struggles trying to get this one made, PTA's long-awaited film is finally on its way to the screen - five years after There Will Be Blood - and it looks every bit as intriguing as its premise suggests. Not least because of Jonny Greenwood's hypnotic, rhythmic, discordant chords that goes alongside Joaquin's nervous mumblings. Here's the trailer:
We'll just start preparing those Oscars now, shall we?
