Just a few days ago, we heard about a secret screening of Paul Thomas Anderson’s new film The Master, which resulted in some great reactions from the crowd. Couple that with the fact that the film will join the competition at the Toronto and Venice Film Festivals, and The Master now has quite a bit of buzz surrounding it.
Today, thanks to Yahoo! Movies, we have a look at the new poster for the film, which features a kaleidoscopic image of the three leads (Joaquin Phoenix, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Amy Adams).
With so much talent in front of the camera (the three leads have eight Oscar noms among them), and Anderson helming (he has five nominations himself), it’s hard not to be intrigued by this project.
For those unfamiliar with the film, the synopsis reads as follows:
A 1950s-set drama centered on the relationship between a charismatic intellectual known as “the Master” whose faith-based organization begins to catch on in America, and a young drifter who becomes his right-hand man.
It’ll be interesting to see what the response from Toronto and Venice is like. If it really is as good as those who were lucky enough to see it early are making it out to be, we just might be seeing it rack up a few Oscar nominations come January.
The film is due out in limited release on September 14th and will be expanding on September 21st.
