Watch: Intense Japanese Trailer For 'The Master' Sneaks In A Handjob

While going down on Michelle Williams and the impressive structure of Michael Fassbender's dong made the MPAA all hot and NC-17 bothered about "Blue Valentine" and "Shame," it seems they are totally cool with handjobs. "Hyde Park On Hudson," "The Sessions" and "On The Road" all feature people getting stroked off (a car seems to be a popular place) and even Paul Thomas Anderson's cryptic wonder "The Master" takes a moment to squeeze one out. But think we're cool about it? In Japan, it ain't no thing.

While going down on Michelle Williams and the impressive structure of Michael Fassbender's dong made the MPAA all hot and NC-17 bothered about "Blue Valentine" and "Shame," it seems they are totally cool with handjobs. "Hyde Park On Hudson," "The Sessions" and "On The Road" all feature people getting stroked off (a car seems to be a popular place) and even Paul Thomas Anderson's cryptic wonder "The Master" takes a moment to squeeze one out. But think we're cool about it? In Japan, it ain't no thing.

While you might have already worn out your Blu-ray, "The Master" is only opening in Japan this weekend, and it has received a pretty intense trailer. Given that it's an English language movie, there's of course more text and voiceover to give viewers the jist of it, but mixed in amongst the footage is Amy Adams providing some relief to Philip Seymour Hoffman. Either this is an even more routine thing in Japanese cinemas than ours, or perhaps whoever cut the trailer severely misunderstood what's going on in that moment.

Anyway, it looks like it's going to be a critical success over there as well, as Cigarettes & Red Vines has compiled all kinds of industry love for the movie from Japanese actors and directors. In the meantime, experience le petit mort below.
