The Master is sure to stir up a little controversy, as it's loosely based on the religion of Scientology. All that matters to me, though, is that it ends up being another great Paul Thomas Anderson film. I love the way he tells his twistedly unique stories, and his latest movie looks like it's going to be a phenomenal film. The Wienstein Company just released a trailer that you can watch now!
Here's the short synopsis:
A charismatic man returns home to America from World War II and forms a faith-based organization. He is now known as "the Master" and his belief system is catching on. As the group is gaining momentum and adding new converts, a young drifter arrives and becomes the Masters invaluable aid.
The movie stars Philip Seymour Hoffman, a charismatic leader who creates a new religion in the 1950s, and Joaquin Phoenix plays his main disciple an alcoholic drifter. Rounding out the cast there is Jesse Plemons, David Warshofsky, Amy Adams, and Rami Malek.
The movie will be released this fall. Watch the new trailer below and tell us know if you're interested in watching Anderson's latest movie!
