Joaquin Phoenix steals the first new trailer for the upcoming Paul Thomas Anderson film “Inherent Vice,” in a role that is as eccentric and odd-ball as any he has ever played. Reese Witherspoon also makes an appearance. “Inherent Vice,” is a crime drama based on the Thomas Pynchon novel. “Inherent Vice” also stars Josh Brolin, Owen Wilson, Katherine Waterston, Jena Malone and Joanna Newsom.

One of the bigger X factors still to be unveiled this awards season is Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice. With a Trailer that just dropped last night (I’ll post it at the bottom of this piece) and a World Premiere this weekend at the New York Film Festival (where I will be in attendance), now seems like the perfect time to discuss how it might fare with Oscar. Frankly, this is one of the hardest contenders to figure out, so things are really up in the air for it. It could either become a major player that stands out from the crowd or it could wind up little more than a critical darling that the Academy doesn’t take a shine to. The odds are about even right now. For those of you who aren’t aware what this is, Anderson adapted the Thomas Pynchon novel of the same name, »

"...the ex-old lady of private eye 'Doc Sportello' (Joaquin Phoenix) shows up out of nowhere with a story about her current billionaire land developer boyfriend whom she just happens to be in love with, including a plot by his wife and her boyfriend to kidnap that billionaire and throw him in a looney bin..."

Adapted from the Thomas Pynchon novel and billed as part “surf noir,” Inherent Vice looks to be a much more experimental and free-flowing film compared to the director’s more recent films There Will Be Blood and The Master; But Anderson has proved he has an eye for ensemble casts and the 1970s with his Boogie Nights.
Joaquin Phoenix is private eye Doc Sportello, whose “ex-lady” shows up out of nowhere with a tale about her billionaire boyfriend who is the target of a kidnapping plot by his wife and her boyfriend to lock him up in an asylum. It’s a comedy, it’s a drama, it’s full of paranoia, desperation, and the absurd.
The film has a stacked cast that includes Reese Witherspoon, »

This weekend, Inherent Vice, Paul Thomas Anderson's adaptation of the 2009 Thomas Pynchon novel of the same name, will receive its world premiere at the New York Film Festival — and now, the film's first trailer has finally been released.
Set in the early Seventies, the clip opens with voiceover narration that advises: "If it's a quiet night out at the beach, and your ex-old lady suddenly out of nowhere shows up with a story about her current billionaire land developer boyfriend and his wife and her boyfriend and a plot »
Private investigator Larry “Doc” Sportello investigates the disappearance of his ex-girlfriend’s boyfriend in Los Angeles. Paul Thomas Anderson’s wild and entrancing new movie, the very first adaptation of a Thomas Pynchon novel, is a cinematic time machine, placing the viewer deep within the world of the paranoid, hazy L.A. dope culture of the early ’70s. It’s not just the look (which is ineffably right, from the mutton chops and the peasant dresses to the battered screen doors and the neon glow), it’s the feel, the rhythm of hanging out, of talking yourself into a state of shivering ecstasy or fear or something in between. The new film stars Joaquin Phoenix, [ Read More ]

Warner Bros. has released the first fantastically strange trailer for director Paul Thomas Anderson's new film Inherent Vice. The movie stars Joaquin Phoenix, Josh Brolin, Owen Wilson, Reese Witherspoon, and Benicio Del Toro. This movie looks like it's going to be a wild and crazy ride. I love what I saw in the trailer, and it has all of the quirky off-beat elements that I enjoy in Anderson's films. The feature is an adaption of the novel by Thomas Pynchon, and this is the 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.
It’s the tail end »

While his recent offering have been on the darker side, Paul Thomas Anderson's highly anticipated Inherent Vice sees him going goofier, adapting Thomas Pynchon's novel following a private eye caught up in a kidnapping plot involving his former lover's billionaire husband. There are hilarious performance across the board here, especially Joaquin Phoenix and Josh Brolin, and the overall tone of the trailer points to this being one movie well worth waiting for. Released: 12th December (U.S.)/ 30th January (Irl/U.K.) »

We’ve seen a few images from the film over the past few weeks, but now we have the first poster and trailer for Inherent Vice, the latest highly-anticipated offering from writer-director Paul Thomas Anderson (There Will Be Blood), and you can check them both out right here…
Inherent Vice is the seventh feature from Paul Thomas Anderson and the first ever film adaption of a Thomas Pynchon novel. 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 looney bin…well, easy for her to say. It’s the tail end of the psychedelic `60s and paranoia is running the day and Doc knows that “love” is another »

If like me you were baffled by Paul Thomas Anderson’s frustrating, pervy and rudderless The Master, you’ll be pleased to see things look a lot more promising for follow up project Inherent Vice. Reuniting him with leading man Joaquin Phoenix and his Walk The Line co-star Reese Witherspoon, the movie comes across as PTA’s take on The Big Lebowski. See what you think by checking out the debut trailer below:
Based on Thomas Pynchon’s novel, the cast also features Owen Wilson, Josh Brolin, Benicio Del Toro, Katherine Waterston, Jena Malone, Martin Short and Eric Roberts. Get that for eclectic. This is the first time that Pynchon has been adapted for the big screen and if any director can manage it, it’s Anderson. The 1970s setting was handled to a tee by the versatile helmer in Boogie Nights, though I haven’t seen quite this level of comedy from him before. »

Paul Thomas Anderson's latest film, Inherent Vice, is coming up fast, with new pictures coming out recently and now, the very first trailer. Joaquin Phoenix plays a burned-out private detective investigating the disappearance of his ex-girlfriend (Katherine Waterston) in the midst of a sea of crazy characters, including those played by Reese Witherspoon, Josh Brolin, Owen Wilson, Benicio Del Toro, and Jena Malone. This is a really appealing trailer; the music is funky and the story looks like Anderson's funniest material ever. The Thomas Pynchon adaptation is one of several books hitting the big screen this Fall, and fans of Anderson should note that this looks less like The Master and more like Boogie Nights. Check it out, and stay tuned until the movie is released on Dec. 12. Front Page Image Source: Warner Bros. »

Will The Master auteur Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice be one of the year’s major awards contenders? Honestly, it’s too early to tell whether the gonzo detective tale will be a tad too strange to strike a chord with Academy voters. Still, the very first trailer for the buzzy pic, which stars Joaquin Phoenix as a drug-addled private eye, paints a picture of a movie that will regardless be a must-see.
From the looks of it, Inherent Vice is going to be weird, erratic and a hell of a lot of fun. Fans of the Thomas Pynchon novel on which it’s based will appreciate the little touches in this preview that work almost like little tips of the hat to the source material – even if Anderson takes some liberties, this adaptation will clearly maintain the wacky spirit of Pynchon’s work.
The cast also looks to be fantastic. »

2013 received a nice slice of 1970s nostalgia with David O’Russell’s crime drama/comedy American Hustle, and now 2014 is getting its own serving from There Will be Blood writer/director Paul Thomas Anderson in the form of Inherent Vice, an adaptation of the novel by Thomas Pynchon. Starring Joaquin Phoenix as Larry “Doc” Sportello, a private investigator with killer sideburns, Inherent Vice is set in Los Angeles in 1970 and stars a broad range of interesting actors in a story that promises to be full of twists, turns and nefarious schemes.
Also starring Benicio del Toro, Josh Brolin, Owen Wilson and Maya Rudolph among its cast of improbably-named characters (whose monikers include Bigfoot Bjornsen, Japonica Fenway and Hope Harlingen), Inherent Vice would make for a perfect double-billing with Dan Gilroy’s upcoming modern day L.A. crime comedy/thriller Nightcrawler.

With just under a week before its bow at the New York Film Festival, Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for Paul Thomas Anderson's adaption of the Thomas Pynchon novel Inherent Vice. And it is glorious... gloriously colorful, weird and very, very funny.Joaquin Phoenix stars in this sun-soaked noir as Doc, who gets caught up in the disappearance of a billionaire. It's also the late 1960s so things are most certainly batshit crazy. Like... do you want to see a military clean-cut Josh Brolin bark orders in Japanese to a chef about pancake-os? Benicio Del Toro, Martin Short and Owen Wilson also appear, and they're also weird. And really, while Phoenix is the star, I have a sneaking suspicion his muttonchops are gonna steal...
