Watch The Second Teaser For Paul Thomas Anderson's Scientology-Inspired 'The Master'

A still from the second teaser for "The Master."
A second teaser trailer for Paul Thomas Anderson's much anticipated "The Master" has been released online.

A month or so after The Weinstein Company debuted footage in Cannes (and dropped a first teaser online which completely focused on Joaquin Phoenix), they have given us our first glimpses of Philip Seymour Hoffman and Amy Adams as husband-and-wife Lancaser and Mary Sue Dodd.

Hoffman's character is rumored to be based on Scientology leader L. Ron Hubbard, and this clip adds to that suggestion with a very "Scientology stress test"-esque discussion between Hoffman's Dodd and Pheonix's troubled Freddie, whose life gets turned around by Dodd and his beliefs.

"The Master" opens in theaters October 12th, though it's quite possible trips to Venice and/or Toronto will occur first. Watch the second teaser -- entitled "Hopelessly Inquisitive" -- below:

    bleach bypass i think, maybe they have used it to give it a period look. I like how raw it looks.
