A new trailer called “Paranoia” has been released for the next movie from Boogie Nights and There Will Be Blood director Paul Thomas Anderson, which is titled Inherent Vice. You can also watch a previous trailer if you’ve never seen it.
The movie features a huge cast including multiple Oscar winners and nominees, led by three-time nominee Joaquin Phoenix. You can read a full synopsis and watch the new Inherent Vice trailer below.
â€œInherent Vice,â€ is the seventh feature from Paul Thomas Anderson and the first ever film adaption of a Thomas Pynchon novel.
When private eye Doc Sportelloâ€™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 binâ€¦well, easy for her to say.
Itâ€™s the tail end of the psychedelic `60s and paranoia is running the day and Doc knows that â€œloveâ€ is another of those words going around at the moment, like â€œtripâ€ or â€œgroovy,â€ thatâ€™s being way too overusedâ€”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 rompâ€”all Thomas Pynchon.
The film stars Oscar nominees Joaquin Phoenix (â€œThe Master,â€ â€œWalk the Lineâ€), Josh Brolin (â€œTrue Grit,â€ â€œNo Country For Old Menâ€) and Owen Wilson (â€œThe Royal Tennenbaums,â€ â€œMidnight in Parisâ€); Katherine Waterston (â€œMichael Clayton,â€ â€œBoardwalk Empireâ€); Oscar winners Reese Witherspoon (â€œWalk the Lineâ€) and Benicio Del Toro (â€œTrafficâ€); Martin Short (â€œFrankenweenieâ€); Jena Malone (â€œThe Hunger Gamesâ€ series); and musician Joanna Newsom.
Oscar nominee Paul Thomas Anderson (â€œThere Will Be Blood,â€ â€œThe Masterâ€) directed â€œInherent Viceâ€ from a screenplay he wrote based on the novel by Thomas Pynchon. Anderson also produced the film, together with Oscar-nominated producers JoAnne Sellar and Daniel Lupi (â€œThere Will Be Bloodâ€). Scott Rudin and Adam Somner served as executive producers.
Inherent Vice will be released on January 9th.
