New Trailer{s} for Paul Thomas Anderson’s upcoming film, “The Master” !

We’ve been profiling this film for months now, and finally two more trailers have dropped for this much anticipated film of the year! We are excited to share them with you.

Full of vintage American goodness, these latest trailers definitely help shed some light on this Post War Tale of Tragedy & Paradise Lost, among other things…the entire production looks absolutely fantastic! Artful, perhaps, even a new American classic….

Looks like Joaquin Phoenix had gotten back what many hypothesized he had lost in time to make this film which looks like quite a marvel of magic movie making!

We found some behind-the-scenes shots taken on the set of the film several months ago, as well as noting the story’s similarity (as well as Phillip Seymour Hoffman’s uncanny resemblance) to L. Ron Hubbard, the father of Scientology.

Many rumors are flying, and most people can’t wait! The world’s first glimpses are coming soon right here in our hometown of Toronto, at this year’s annual international film festival. The film will then make it’s European debut in Venice for their annual festival, as well. And with Harvey Weinstein backing the thing, we can’t imagine it flop…

So keep your {EYE} open, and enjoy these quick glimpses into one of the year’s hottest upcoming attractions!

Sincerely,

“On the Road” Film Posters

Posters for Walter Salles’ screen adaptation of the Beat Generation classic “On the Road” have been released. Based on the novel by Jack Kerouac, this long awaited adaptation features some of Hollywood’s biggest stars including Kristen Stewart and Kirsten Dunst (Kristen and Kirsten), both of whom appear on their very own poster for the film.

Salles is originally from Brazil, and is no stranger to screen adaptations, having won acclaim for 2003’s Motorcycle Diaries based on the memoirs of Che Guevera. Being such a huge cult classic and inspiration, it will definitely be interesting to see how they translate Kerouac’s prose to picture. From the looks of the trailer, they seem to embody the spirit.

These posters, however, seem to lack some character, and feel a little detached. It’s interesting to see the characters caught in a moment, but it’s feeling a little too neat and perfect, in a way. Wish they had found some inspiration in some of the old covers of the book. Add some vintage flair to the mix, you know?

“On the Road” premiers at this year’s 2012 Cannes Film Festival. Check the website for more details.

American Vintage: Behind the Scenes of Paul Thomas Anderson’s “The Master”

With the Academy Awards freshly behind us, it’s come time to stare the future head on and see what’s patiently waiting in the wings for this upcoming year! One project in particular that seems to have many cinephiles speculating across the blogospher is auteur Paul Thomas Anderson’s (“Boogie Nights”, “Magnolia”, & “There Will Be Blood”) newest venture- “The Master”.

Shrouded in mystery, the film stars Joaquin Phoenix as a troubled drifter who finds himself the right-hand man to Lancaster Dodd (Philip Seymour Hoffman), a charismatic intellectual who launches a faith-based organization called “The Cause”. Set in the 1950s, Phoenix’s character begins to question the beliefs of the organization as it grows a fervent following.

Also starring Amy Adams and EOF Favourite, Laura Dern, the film is sure to stir up a lot of conversation with Anderson’s fictional religion “The Cause” being compared to the ever controversial religion of Scientology and it’s prolific rise throughout the 1950s headed by it’s founder, science fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard.

Anderson always has critical conversaions to tell about society in his films, and we’re sure “The Master” will be no exception.

One thing’s for certain, however- the staying power of vintage! Looks like on top of the 1950s of “The Master”, there will be plenty of period power this year with films like dirt backroad Prohibition-era “The Wettest County“, Beatnik 50’s “On the Road“, and of course the 1920’s decadent glamour of Bazz Luhrman’s “The Great Gatsby“; all will provide for some new classic vintage American moments!

Everything old is new again. So, if you’re excited for a sneak peak of some vintage American cool in the movies, check out these behind-the-scene photographs taken by Jack Erling on the set of “The Master”. No celebrities, but a great taste at some fantastic period costumes and locations! Makes you think they had a time machine!

Costume designer Mark Bridges won an Oscar on Sunday for his recreation of the silent era in “The Artist”, and from the looks of it he might be running the race again next year for “The Master”!

Enjoy! (Thank you, Blackbook!)

Sincerely,
