New footage is revealed in the latest teaser for Paul Thomas Anderson's upcoming film.

If it were possible to win an Academy Award for the best trailer of the year, we think the final teaser for Paul Thomas Anderson’s “The Master” would take the Oscar gold home.

Never have we seen a minute-long trailer used so effectively. There is some new footage here, but the impact of the teaser is the same as its predecessors. Anderson has proved that he is The Master at his craft with just the snippets of scenes presented here. Hopefully the final product can hold up to the high expectations “The Master” has made for itself.

Early reviews to “The Master” have been glowing, despite some complaints about the film’s third act. As is evident in this trailer, the acting, cinematography and score are supposed to be three of the most impressive parts of Anderson’s latest feature film. “The Master” will make its premiere at the Venice Film Festival soon, and will be followed by a limited theatrical release on September 14 followed by a nationwide run on September 21.

“The Master” tells the story of a man known as “the Master” (Philip Seymour Hoffman) who creates a set of religious beliefs along the lines of Scientology or Mormonism and watches as it catches on in America. Joaquin Phoenix plays a soldier who has trouble settling into his life until he meets the Master, and then finds his sense of purpose and becomes his right-hand man. All is well until he begins questioning his decision to do so. It’s believed that “The Master” tells a fictionalized version of the creation of Scientology. It also stars Amy Adams, Laura Dern, Jesse Plemons and Rami Malek.
