Joaquin Phoenix promotes new religion in

PanARMENIAN.Net - "The Master" trailer offers another look at Philip Seymour Hoffman as the mysterious leader of a burgeoning new religion.

"There Will be Blood" director Paul Thomas Anderson follows Lancaster Dodd (Hoffman) in his quest to promote his newly founded religion, "The Cause," with wife Mary Sue Dodd (Amy Adams) by his side. Soon, an emotionally unstable follower, Freddie Sutton (Joaquin Phoenix), comes along and works closely with Lancaster to promote the religion as it catches on in America.

Inevitably, questions of faith crop up: Is "The Cause" an honest and true religion? Should followers trust the word of one man? Where do we draw the line between religion and cults?

"The Master" has already drawn comparisons to Scientology. Decide for yourself when it comes out Oct. 12, TheWrap said.
