Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master (2012) Trailer

After watching two teaser trailers [1, 2] for Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master that introduced us to the characters played by Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman, a full-length trailer has finally been made for the film.

The trailer for The Master illustrates how Lancaster Dodd (Hoffman) and Freddie Sutton (Phoenix) form an immediate connection that, at first, seems mutually beneficial. However, as Sutton steadily awakens to Dodd’s true nature, he relapses into an inescapable nightmare state that makes him a potential obstacle to the cult that Dodd and his wife Mary Sue (Amy Adams) are working to build.

The film premieres on October 12, 2012.
