A brand new TV spot and short clip have been revealed for Paul Thomas Anderson’s latest film, The Master, and we have them both right here for you to enjoy.
The clip features Amy Adams proving once again what a top class actress she is as she appears to be rather upset. Playing in the background is what appears to be yet another jaw dropping score from Radiohead’s Johnny Greenwood (he also did the music for Anderson’s previous classic There Will Be Blood). The TV spot offers up some new footage, also it reveals the film has been rated R in the US. Check out all the good stuff at the bottom of this post.
There has also been a lot of talk of the film being loosely based on L. Ron Hubbard’s story, he being the man who founded Scientology. The character in the film who it is thought is Hubbard is played by Philip Seymour Hoffman, and while it is still unclear whether the film is indeed about Scientology, Hoffman offered this when speaking with EW recently:
“It’s not the L. Ron Hubbard story. [Scientology] was one of the bigger movements at the time, but there were a lot of movements at that time. There’s nothing about how I’m behaving or talking that echoes [Hubbard]. I thought of a lot of other bigger-than-life personalities, charismatic people like Orson Welles. Joaquin’s character is like a beaten dog, no matter where he goes, [he] gets into severe trouble. And somehow I’m able to deal with him.”
