The Master Trailer: Philip Seymour Hoffman is a Hopelessly Inquisitive Man

by at . Comments

The latest The Master trailer introduces Philip Seymour Hoffman as Lancaster Dodd, an author-turned-religious-leader.

The Master is Paul Thomas Anderson's latest film, and stars Hoffman along with Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams (Man of Steel), and Laura Dern. It follows the story of a post-WWII intellectual who creates a religious organization and recruits Phoenix's character as his loyal follower.

Anderson has only made five films prior to this film, having been thrust into the spotlight with his 1997 effort Boogie Nights (check out some Boogie Nights quotes). His last film, There Will Be Blood, was nominated for 8 Academy Awards, and won 2.

The Master hits theaters October 12. For more, watch the first The Master trailer, featuring a chilling performance from Phoenix.
