First Gorgeous Trailer for P.T. Anderson's Scientology Movie The Master

Trailer FrenzyA special place to find the newest trailers for movies and TV shows you're craving.

Joaquin Phoenix is amazingly deranged and sparky in the first trailer for The Master, Paul Thomas Anderson's troubled-but-fascinating movie that's at least loosely based on Scientology. You can already see from this brief teaser that Phoenix's character is going to have impulse control issues as well as a flawed memory. (Although Jeremy Renner still might have been pretty amazing in the lead role.) This teaser doesn't, however, give us a look at Philip Seymour Hoffman's L. Ron Hubbard-inspired cult leader character. You can read our thoughts on a script draft of this movie here.

I still don't get how you get Scientology out of this trailer. I got nothing.
