It's not 'The Avengers' level of saturation, but for an arthouse film, it's fair to say that Paul Thomas Anderson's latest film 'The Master' has put out a lot of material. The film opens in limited markets on September 14, and everywhere September 21, and has a number of festival screenings between now and then. And now there's a TV spot.
Though we've seen a bunch of trailers - at times, abstract - for 'The Master,' today we get our first official look at a clip from the film. Despite the fact that the film focuses on the relationship between The Master (Philip Seymour Hoffman) and his subject (Joaquin Phoenix), this clip focuses on Amy Adams, who just might be pulling the strings.
Paul Thomas Anderson's 'The Master' hits theaters on September 14, where it will become the first horse to show in 2012's Oscar race (though with the five to ten possible best picture nominees, it's possible that 'The Dark Knight Rises' or 'The Avengers' could slip in there), there have been a number of previews and clips that have hit online, and it's looks like we now have the film's last trailer.
September 14 is less than a month away, but it seems that Paul Thomas Anderson's 'The Master' can't keep itself locked up. For the fourth time in the last month, it's screening early (this time in San Francisco), and for the second time as a benefit for The Film Foundation. And with that announcement comes a new clip.
Paul Thomas Anderson's 'There Will Be Blood' is a great film for a more reasons than we can count, but surely near the top (right alongside Daniel Day-Lewis' instantly iconic lead performance) is Johnny Greenwood's score. Unsettling, sparse and unforgettable, its disqualification from the Academy Awards remains one of Oscar's darkest moments. Since you don't fix something that isn't broken, Greenwood came back to score Anderson's 'The Master' and if a recently released sample track is any indication, this partnership has once again bore sinister and incredible fruit.
It's the end of summer, so celebrate by heading to the theater to check out this month's new releases. We've got the latest from Rian Johnson, a new raunchy female-centric comedy, an animated trip to a spooky hotel, and the highly-anticipated new film from Paul Thomas Anderson.
For those of you lucky enough to live in Chicago, Paul Thomas Anderson's 'The Master' will be screening tomorrow, Thursday August 16, in 70mm at The Music Box Theater as a benefit for The Film Foundation (and you can get your tickets now). For those who live outside of Chicago, the film has released a new clip, which plays partly like a trailer.
