Are you a Paul Thomas Anderson fan? Also a fan of new trailers? Well, it’s your lucky day!
A new trailer has dropped in the UK for PTA’s newest film, Inherent Vice. Featuring an ensemble cast with the likes of Joaquin Phoenix, Maya Rudolph, Reese Witherspoon, Josh Brolin, and Benicio Del Toro, this madcap comedy takes place at the tail end of the sixties. Here’s the official synopsis:
When private eye Doc Sportello’s ex-old lady suddenly out of nowhere shows up with a story about her current billionaire land developer boyfriend whom she just happens to be in love with, and a plot by his wife and her boyfriend to kidnap that billionaire and throw him in a loony bin… Well, easy for her to say.
Here’s the trailer:
It’s the tail end of the psychedelic `60s and paranoia is running the day and Doc knows that “love” is another of those words going around at the moment, like “trip” or “groovy,” that’s being way too overused — except this one usually leads to trouble.
With a cast of characters that includes surfers, hustlers, dopers and rockers, a murderous loan shark, LAPD Detectives, a tenor sax player working undercover, and a mysterious entity known as the Golden Fang, which may only be a tax dodge set up by some dentists… Part surf noir, part psychedelic romp — all Thomas Pynchon.
Sounds interesting, right? If so, and you live in the UK, the trailer tells when special screenings will take place there. So if you drive on the left side of the road, you’ll get to see this ahead of anyone else.
I’ve been hearing about this project for a while, but this is the first official thing I’ve seen about it. It looks pretty promising to me, but what do you guys think? Worth flying over to the UK to see before it hits theaters in the US?
