Here’s the fresh teaser for Paul Thomas Anderson’s movie ‘The Master.’ It’s about a charismatic religious leader (Philip Seymour Hoffman) and a drunk disorderly sailor (Joaquin Phoenix) who aren’t L. Ron Hubbard the disorderly-sailor-turned-religious leader. Nope!
Yep, they’re two people now. See? Different.
The on-again, off-again, “postponed indefinitely,” back-again production is still shrouded in deliberate mystery that has nothing to do with Scientology-related drama because it’s not about Scientology.
‘The Master’ opens October 12 with a Johnny Greenwood soundtrack, just like ‘There Will Be Blood.’ Cue ominous violins.
