New Trailer For The Master Online
'Man is not an animal!'

As awards season approaches, Paul Thomas Anderson and the team behind The Master have been screening the film to select audiences to generate buzz. It’s been getting generally positive – if occasionally confused – reactions, and the new trailer is likely to provoke similar emotions, as it once again focuses on Philip Seymour Hoffman’s charismatic Lancaster Dodd and Joaquin Phoenix’s Freddie Quell. Take a look below.

It’s easy to see why Anderson and the marketing bods might be focusing on those two; from the looks of all the promos so far and especially this one, they appear to be giving virtuoso performances. Hoffman is the calm, collected, intellectual but driven Dodd, a man who believes he has figured out the secret to happiness in life and wishes to share it, but who also seems to be building a cult-like following. Phoenix’s Quell, on the other hand, is an animalistic, out of control war veteran looking for guidance but also unable to control his urges. The clash between them promises to be something special.

US audiences get to experience The Master on September 14. We’ll have to wait until November 9 to see it.

All of Anderson's films seem hypnotic. The performances they bring out of their actors are incredible - this trailer seems to be no different to me in quality than the others and they were amazing films. More

There's constructive criticism, there's structured opinion and then there's talking shit. You fall in the latter. Try and make your next comment not as irritating and meaningless as your previous one. I have no desire to read that. More

That was an extremely irritating, meaningless trailer. I have no desire to see this movie. More
