Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams, and Philip Seymour Hoffman star in The Master, the upcoming dramatic film from writer/director Paul Thomas Anderson (There Will Be Blood). The Weinstein Company just released the theatrical trailer for the film and it’s obvious this will be one of TWC’s big Oscar pushes. The film centers on Phoenix’s character who leaves the Navy and is drawn to Hoffman’s Lancaster Dodd, the leader of a faith-based organization (Anderson supposedly based Hoffman’s character on Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard).
The Master hits theaters on September 14, 2012.
