The first Official Image from Paul Thomas Anderson’s INHERENT VICE Adaptation

Tuesday, August 19th, 2014

pta-vice

The first official still from Inherent Vice has made its way online; it’s one of my most anticipated movies of the year for so many reasons. Firstly it’s based on an outstanding novel by Thomas Pynchon, it’s directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, one of the best directors ever (Boogie Nights, Magnolia, Punch-Drunk Love, There Will Be Blood, The Master). It also stars Joaquin Phoenix! What’s not to love?

In Los Angeles in 1970, drug-fueled detective Larry “Doc” Sportello investigates the disappearance of a former girlfriend.

The first image shows Joaquin Phoenix as burnout “detective” Doc Sportello, as he has a moment with hard-ass cop “Bigfoot” Bjornson, played by Josh Brolin.

The film also features Benicio Del Toro, Owen Wilson, Reese Witherspoon, and Katherine Waterston as Sportello’s ex Shasta, whose current boyfriend goes missing, setting up the story. Martin Short, Jena Malone, Kevin J. O’Connor, Timothy Simons, Peter McRobbie, Sasha Pieterse, Joanna Newsom, Maya Rudolph and Eric Roberts also star.

Inherent Vice will premiere at the New York Film Festival and will be released December 12 2014.

Paul Thomas Anderson’s INHERENT VICE News

Thursday, January 31st, 2013

paul-ta

We love writer/director Paul Thomas Anderson around here so any news is worth mentioning.  He is working on his follow-up to The Master (one of the best films in years). He is set to go on his adaptation of the Thomas Pynchon novel Inherent Vice.

Joaquin Phoenix will be taking the lead role in the 1960s Los Angeles private detective story, and production is starting in a few short months.

The fansite Cigarettes and Red Vines talked to Anderson’s longtime producer JoAnn Sellar adn she revealed that they’re hoping to start filming on Inherent Vice very soon:

“We’re just putting the financing together and the plan is to start shooting in late April,” Sellar told us. We asked if that meant casting announcements would be underway shortly, she said “Everything should be [underway] very soon in order to start shooting then: late April/early May kinda thing.”

Let’s hope we don’t have to wait years for this one like his other projects, get to work good sir.

Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master will be screening the film in 70mm today at 7:30 PM in Austin, TX  (The Alamo Drafthouse Ritz).  Those lucky souls will be treated to something great no doubt, and lucky for the rest of us there is a new clip from the much anticipated movie.

This clip is very NSFW (get headphones) and shows Joaquin Phoenix taking aNavy psychological examination. The Master has been gaining a lot of postive buzz, so much so that the jury at the Venice Film Festival who liked the movie so much, they ran out of awards to give it (seriously).

The film also stars Philip Seymour Hoffman and Amy Adams.  It opens in limited release September 14th and expands on September 21st.  Watch the clip below:

Clip From THE MASTER: “She Wrote Me a Letter”

Thursday, August 16th, 2012

the-masterI’m not usually one to post clips, but the anticipation for The Master is actually making me lose sleep.  OK maybe that’s too much, but this clip is great anyways.  The one and only I will watch and likely share, you have to go in fresh right?  See my article – FOCUS: Paul Thomas Anderson’s THE MASTER.

The quality of this film is outstanding; everything from the performances just in trailers and this clip alone to the 70mm hype and style of the picture.  What a beautiful score we have here too.

The Master opens on September 14.

A striking portrait of drifters and seekers in post World War II America, Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master unfolds the journey of a Naval veteran (Joaquin Phoenix) who arrives home from war unsettled and uncertain of his future — until he is tantalized by The Cause and its charismatic leader (Philip Seymour Hoffman).

FOCUS: Paul Thomas Anderson’s THE MASTER

The anticipation for Paul Thomas Anderson’s new film The Master is now settling in, this is an exciting time for fans of his work or fans of great movies. I have called There Will Be Blood the best movie of the 2000’s (2000-2010), I only suspect that after 5 years, he has another masterpiece to share.

There is a wonderful trailer you can watch below, that’s a good place to get started as I am going to delve into what we know about the movie up until this point. There is also more than enough gorgeous pictures below in a gallery to appreciate.

Let’s get started.

Great Full-Length Trailer for Paul Thomas Anderson’s THE MASTER

Thursday, July 19th, 2012

the-master-banner

One of my most anticipated movies of the year is writer/director Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master.  It’s a movie to be excited about that’s for sure; if not just for the fact that Anderson also brought us There Will Be Blood, Punch-Drunk Love, Magnolia, and Boogie Nights, not a bad track record right?

The film stars Philip Seymour Hoffman as World War II veteran Lancaster Dodd, who’s haunted by his experiences and decides to form his own religion.  Joaquin Phoenix returns to real movies to play a drifter who becomes Lancaster’s “right-hand man”.  There’s already a lot of talk about the move that has some very obvious aims at Scientology, more obvious now in this trailer.

Interesting to note that Anderson has shown Tom Cruise a cut of the film (Cruise got a Best Supporting Actor nomination for Magnolia).  The two are friends, and Anderson well aware of the fire storm this is going to cause (especially with those who will never see the film…sigh) decided to perhaps settle people down before the tabloids get it wrong.  It’s been said that Cruise had issues with some of what he saw, what those issues are we may never know.

Joaquin Phoenix looks just excellent in this trailer, a haunting performance just from the select scenes presented.  Philip Seymour Hoffman too, the guy is a force.  If you were curious as to why the film looks “different”, it may be because Anderson shot the movie in 65mm, which as you can see looks awesome.

The Master opens on October 12th, watch the trailer below:

Another Trailer for Paul Thomas Anderson’s THE MASTER

Wednesday, June 20th, 2012

master

Here is the first trailer/clip/teaser for Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master and below you can watch the latest. The film stars Philip Seymour Hoffman as World War II veteran Lancaster Dodd, who’s haunted by his experiences and decides to form his own religion.  Joaquin Phoenix returns to real movies to play a drifter who becomes Lancaster’s “right-hand man”.

This is looking really good, it’s always an event seeing a Paul Thomas Anderson film; There Will Be Blood was a great movie going experience.  The Master looks like it will be based on some Scientology history, mainly that of founder L. Ron Hubbard – so look for a lot of criticism from people who won’t see the movie.

The Master will be released October 12th.
