The trailer for Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice has landed and it is a doozy.
The filmmaker here is a big draw, what with his astounding work on Boogie Nights, There Will Be Blood and Magnolia. But, what about his cast for Inherent Vice? Joaquin Phoenix is the lead, and the film follows his private eye as he gets involved in a case that is way over his head.
He’ll have to intertwine with an eclectic cast of characters including Josh Brolin, Owen Wilson, Reese Witherspoon, Martin Short, Jena Malone and Katherine Waterson.
Look for Inherent Vice on December 12 and discover what happens when an old girlfriend (Waterson) shows up and asks for his help getting to the bottom of the mystery of her boyfriend, who wound up in an insane asylum, courtesy of his wife and her boyfriend -- that all started with a kidnapping.
Inherent Vice is the first ever adaptation of a Thomas Pynchon novel!
Warner Bros. also released the film’s first poster -- check it out in the slideshow below!
