The Master Guarantees some Oscars

Joaquin is back!!!! I have been anticipating this film for a very long time and we finally have the teaser trailer to get a glimpse into the latest Paul Thomas Anderson film. “The Master” stars Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Joaquin Phoenix, and Amy Adams (that’s a whopping 8 Oscar Nominations combined), this tale follows a religion called “The Cause” following WWII. Phoenix plays what seems to be a wandering drunk who becomes the right hand man to the cults master, Phillip Seymour Hoffman. The trailer suggests this story revolves around Phoenix’s character but apparently he is in a supporting role.

I have been a HUGE Paul Thomas Anderson fan for many years, I consider “There Will Be Blood” to be one of the greatest films ever made, so needless to say I am beyond anxious for this one. Check out the teaser trailer below and let me know what you think! I’m predicting at least 6 Oscar Noms.

A Little Less Law

Shia LaBeouf is back! It’s only been about a year but at the rate actors spit out movies these days it feels like we haven’t seen our favorite “Even Stevens” cast member in ages. The film “Lawless” directed by John Hillcoat and based on the book “The Wettest County in the World, tells the true story of the Bondurant Brothers. These boys would become famous for bootlegging during Prohibition¬†era Virginia.

Joining LaBeouf in this film are Academy Award nominees Gary Oldman and Jessica Chastain. Guy Pearce, one of my personal favorites, will play Deputy Charles Rake who looks to be the “bad guy” of the film. The most notable cast member is Tom Hardy. 2012 is slowly becoming the year of Tom Hardy, and with the impending release of “The Dark Knight Rises” he will easily become this years Michael Fassbender.

“Lawless” will be distributed by the Weinstein Company and is in competition for the Palm d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival. Check out the trailer below and let me know what you think!
