'The Master' Presents One Final, Long NSFW Trailer

The Weinstein Company

There's been nothing normal about 'The Master's marketing campaign. The film has released clips (many of which were of scenes deleted from the finished film), and had numerous charity screenings, and now - a week after the picture went into wide release - they've released a four and a half minute trailer.

The trailer covers much of the film, though it also features footage not seen in the finished film. If you don't know by know, here's the film's synopsis:

A striking portrait of drifters and seekers in post World War II America, Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master unfolds the journey of a Naval veteran (Joaquin Phoenix) who arrives home from war unsettled and uncertain of his future — until he is tantalized by The Cause and its charismatic leader (Philip Seymour Hoffman).”

We reviewed the film, and our own Matt Singer said this about the film: " 'The Master’ isn’t ultimately about whether Scientology is a cult or a legitimate religion, or whether L. Ron Hubbard was a philanthropic genius or a greedy charlatan. Stripped of its luminous imagery and twitchy, iconoclastic score by Jonny Greenwood, it is a fairly simple story about the symbiotic bond between two troubled men, and the way in which their connection offers both the chance to make sense of life’s confusing paradoxes together."

But if that doesn't convince you, maybe this last trailer will. 'The Master' is in theaters now.
