In an age with announcements for teasers of trailers for trailers, we have to say we're big fans of how Paul Thomas Anderson and The Weinstein Company are going about the campaign for their new film, "The Master." A brief clip/teaser arrived during Cannes, on the same day that footage from the film was screened on the Croisette, and now, unannounced in the middle of the night, a second teaser trailer has cropped up on YouTube, as noticed by Badass Digest, and it's pretty swell.

It really doesn't get more irreverent and outlandish than the cult films of Robert Downey Sr. and let's face it, every cinephile worth his salt loves an excuse to talk about the underground filmmaker's outré classic "Putney Swope."

Since rumors started to fly about Paul Thomas Anderson's latest film, "The Master," which was said, and has now pretty much been confirmed, to be about the much-mocked religion of Scientology, there's been one question on the back of many our minds: what does Tom Cruise think about the whole thing? The megastar is, after all, both an Oscar nominee for his supporting turn in Anderson's 1999 film "Magnolia," and a leading light in, and often public spokesman for, the Church of Scientology, the very subject which his former director was tackling with his latest film.

Here's something to whet your appetite for the fall film festival season. While journos, pundits and fans alike all lamented the absence of Paul Thomas Anderson's "The Master" in the Cannes line-up this year, it appears The Weinstein Company -- already dominating the festival with buzzed-about in-competition films and acquisitions of would-be crowd pleasers -- were paying attention to sad-faced frownies on Twitter.

Way back in April, before lensing started on Paul Thomas Anderson's "The Master," word leaked out that the director was shooting test footage with a 65mm camera, the same used by Stanley Kubrick on "2001: A Spacy Odyssey" -- and then, not much was heard after that.
