EXCLUSIVE: 65mm Filmstrip Reveals First Look At Philip Seymour Hoffman As ‘The Master'; Film Still Being Edited

Just when you thought your May 15th was going to come and go without a kick: We here at the Vines can pass along the first official update on The Master direct from Paul Thomas Anderson as well as the first image of the film, kind of...the floor is yours, sir:

CJ -
good evening.  it's been so long
and you've been so patient, thought
i'd fill you in on where we're
at with it now: 
 
These shots include our lovely
Negative Cutter, Simone, imported
all the way from France to cut 65mm
negative.   She does it all with a pair
of scissors from Staples.  
I'll have more to share in the
coming days/weeks/months.  Hope
you're well. Thank you for all the support. 
See you soon.
paul.

Click any of those thumbnails to see the full sized versions.

And, because hitting CTRL + OPTION + APPLE + 8 takes alot of effort, I have close cropped the 65" filmstrip and reversed/color corrected it into an educated guess at the look. The image appears to be a Phil Hoffman as the Master.


So it seems the film is still being worked on, or these were archival images to get you pre-heated for whatever is dropping next, which you will find here first. Follow us on Twitter and we'll warn you ahead of time about things and reward you in various ways.

  1. PTA knows his fans well. A 65mm filmstrip of his upcoming The Master may be the greatest first treat to this film imaginable.

  2. Agreed. That Paul sure knows how to build the anticipation. I truly believe he knows exactly what he's doing with every aspect of this project. Can't wait! Cheers!

  3. the dude also knows how not to ruin a trailer. kind of like stanley from the BX. remember that sneak trailer from TWBB when HW is just cutting DP's hair. It wasn't even part of the movie, it just gave you a taste. how many trailers do you see where after it you are like... don't need to see that now. most of them actually.

  4. So much for thinking it was gonna be in B&W. The production stills had me thinking that that was where he was going with it. Can't wait til the 12th!

  6. I believe Anderson is using Kubrick's 65mm cameras from 2001 for this. Cannot wait for this film.

    1. "Kubrick's 65mm cameras from 2001" - no, simply Panavision's 65mm cameras - Mr. Kubrick did not own his own 65mm cameras, and had to rent through Samuelson's in London. Thomas, in70mm.com

    2. Surely they are using the modern System 65 cameras, not the ancient rackover beasts.

  7. Haha awesome. Anybody else see a little link between 'The Master' dancing and us being super-excited to see the first shot of the film? Think about it, aside from a release date and cast list, this is the first official ANYTHING we've gotten on the film. Kind of perfect, if you ask me. RIDICULOUSLY PUMPED

  8. Sadly, the silver screen has been looking pretty tarnished lately.. I simply can not wait for this film to polish it all up.

  10. I have been suffering from a deadly disease (Hsv) for the past 2 years now, I had spent a lot of money going from one places to another, from churches to churches, hospitals have been my home every day residence. Constant checks up have been my hobby not until this faithful day, I was searching through the internet, I saw a testimony on how Dr Oyagu helped someone in curing his (Hsv) herpes disease, quickly I copied his email which is oyaguherbalhome@gmail.com just to give him a test I spoke to him, he asked me to do some certain things which I did, he told me that he is going to provide the herbal cure to me, which he did, then he asked me to go for medical checkup after some days after using the herbal cure, behold I was free from the deadly disease, he only asked me to post the testimony through the whole world, faithfully am doing it now, please brothers and sisters, he is great, I owe him in return. if you are having a similar problem just email him on oyaguherbalhome@gmail.com visit his website https://oyaguspellcaster.wixsite.com/oyaguherbalhome Or whatsapp him via +2348101755322
