The Weinstein Company and Paul Thomas Anderson  have released a new one sheet for the controversial film “The Master.”  The poster is printed in a dull blue hue with the images of actors Philip Seymour Hoffman, Amy Adams, and Joaquin Phoenix repeated over and over again simulating a growing crowd of clones.  The color on the poster is similar to the color of the Scientology building in Hollywood, California.  Did the filmmakers do this on purpose?

See for yourself:

Here is the storyline for the film:

After returning from the Second World War, and having witnessed many horrors, a charismatic intellectual creates a faith based organization in an attempt to provide meaning to his life. He becomes known as “The Master.” His right-hand man, a former drifter, begins to question both the belief system and The Master as the organization grows and gains a fervent following.

“The Master” is scheduled to open theatrically in limited release on September 14th, and then expands into wide release on September 21st.  The film stars Philip Seymour Hoffman, Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams, Laura Dern, Rami Malek, Jesse Plemons, W. Earl Brown, Jillian Bell, Kevin J. O’Connor, Ambry Childers, Lena Endre, Fiona Dorif, Darren Le Gallo, Patty McCormack, and Katie Boland.  The film is written and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson.
