Director Paul Thomas Anderson has released a second teaser trailer for his new film The Master. This latest teaser gives us a glimpse at the relationship of the two main characters in the movie, played by Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix. As you'll see, Hoffman's character is trying to save Phoenix's character from himself.
I enjoy the films that Anderson makes. They aren't for everyone, but damn, they are well made films with great characters and interesting stories.
The film follows a character named Lancaster Dodd, "The Master," played by Philip Seymour Hoffman, a charismatic leader who creates a new religion in the 1950s and his main disciple (Phoenix), an alcoholic drifter named Freddie Sutton who becomes Dodd's closest follower only to later break away from his teachings. It's supposed to be based on the religion of Scientology.
Watch the new teaser, and hit us up with any thoughts on the film you might have!
