The biggest question mark hanging over P.T. Anderson's The Master has always been: How close to a movie about Scientology is this going to be? Rumor had it that Anderson tweaked the script a lot to take it away from being a straight-up portrayal of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard — but the Hubbard vibe is still very strong in this new trailer. Watch as Philip Seymour Hoffman asks Joaquin Phoenix a series of weird questions, with the words "We are immortal spirits" sandwiched in there somewhere. This could be one of the year's most fascinating movies. [via Ned Raggett on Twitter]
