Warner Bros. Pictures has just released a new trailer for writer/director Paul Thomas Anderson’s darkly comic Thomas Pynchon adaptation, Inherent Vice.
Inherent Vice begins when when private eye Doc Sportello’s (Joaquin Phoenix) 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 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…
Casts Josh Brolin, Owen Wilson, Benicio Del Toro and Reese Witherspoon, Cast is brilliant and so will movie be.
Inherent Vice opens in a limited release this Friday, December 12 with plans to expand everywhere January 9.
