Full-Length Trailer for PTA’s “The Master”

20 07 2012

Hello? You may, or may not, have noticed that it’s been a long time since we’ve posted anything.  Basically, post-college life happened.  Maryann’s busy working full-time, and I’m working part-time and trying to finish up my thesis for Grad school, so this site kind of got pushed aside.  But now we’re back!  Posts might not be published quite as often as they used to, but we’re definitely going to give this site more attention, and what better way to start than with the trailer for Paul Thomas Anderson’s new movie?  Everything’s looking amazing: Joaquin Phoenix,  Jonny Greenwood’s score, dat cinematography.  Needless to say I can’t wait.  “There Will Be Blood” was one of my favorite movies of recent memory, so naturally I’m expecting big things from “The Master.”  Check out the trailer below:

New PTA film

9 12 2009

After There Will Be Blood, which might be my favorite film of the last decade, I think Paul Thomas Anderson is easily the best young writer/director.  I also happen the think that Philip Seymour Hoffman, who’s appeared in every PTA film other than There Will Be Blood, is the best current actor after Daniel Day-Lewis.  So the news that PTA just finished an original script for a new drama about the rise of a religious organization in the ’50’s that’s set to star Philip Seymour Hoffman might be the most exciting news I’ve heard all year. 

The film is still untitled, but is expected to shoot sometime next year for a 2011 release.  WOOT!
