The Master Movie Trailer

The Master Trailer: Philip Seymour Hoffman Bewitches Joaquin Phoenix

Philip Seymour Hoffman plays Lancaster Dodd, a "writer, a doctor, a nuclear physicist, a theoretical philosopher," and possibly an extremely creepy cult leader, in the trailer for The Master. Joaquin Phoenix plays Freddie, a troubled veteran who is drawn to the charismatic Lancaster, known as "The Master." Promising to point him in the right direction (toward a family and a place in society), The Master soon becomes an integral part of Freddie's life. But is Lancaster a friend, or is he simply manipulating Freddie, making up the whole facade as he goes along?

This is director Paul Thomas Anderson's first film since 2007's There Will Be Blood, and this looks every bit as hypnotizing. I don't know if I buy Amy Adams as Hoffman's wife, but given that his character seems to possess great personal charm, I can make an exception. I also can't get over the perfect casting of Friday Night Lights' Jesse Plemons play Hoffman's son. I'm simultaneously excited for this movie and anticipating being quite perturbed by Hoffman. The Master is set for a Nov. 9 release (just in time for Oscar season!), but check out the trailer after the jump.

I think that Channing Tatum would be a perfect Christian Grey.  I was leaning toward Anne Hathaway as Ana. She has an innocent look about her.
