New Trailer For The Master Has Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman “Hopelessly Inquisitive”

Synopsis: A charismatic intellectual (Hoffman) launches a religious organization following World War II. A drifter (Phoenix) becomes his right-hand man but as the faith begins to gain a fervent following, the drifter finds himself questioning the belief system and his mentor.

It’s been five years since we last got a feature film from writer-director Paul Thomas Anderson. His last outing, There Will Be Blood, was a multiple Oscar nominee and saw its star, Daniel Day-Lewis, take home the coveted Best Actor trophy. His latest sees him re-teaming with Philip Seymour Hoffman, though this is the first time Hoffman has worked with Anderson where he had the lead, as opposed to a supporting role. Joaquin Phoenix, free from his “social experiment,” co-stars along with Amy Adams.

The Master is set to open in limited release beginning October 12, 2012 – the same week as Ben Affleck’s Argo, and the Coen Brothers written remake of the romantic comedy Gambit, starring Colin Firth and Cameron Diaz.
