In a new trailer for The Master, from There Will Be Blood mastermind Paul Thomas Anderson, we get to see more of Oscar winner Phillip Seymour Hoffman in the title role (Hoffman was conspicuously absent from a clip released last month). "The Master" is Lancaster Dodd, a charismatic intellectual whose faith-based organization, "The Cause," has been compared to Scientology. Joaquin Phoenix plays a young, troubled drifter who becomes Dodd's right-hand man.

The Master, also starring Amy Adams and Laura Dern, is scheduled for release on October 12.
