'Inherent Vice' trailer finally debuts and it looks spectacular

Out of all the remaining fall films, the one that had continued to elude cinephiles everywhere was Paul Thomas Anderson's Inherent Vice. The noir comedy, which stars Joaquin Phoneix, Josh Brolin, Owen Wilson, Benicio Del Toro, Jena Malone, Reese Witherspoon, Maya Rudolph, Eric Roberts, Martin Short and Michael K. Williams, has been repeatedly teased over the last few months, but no trailer was ever released. However, buzz continued to build thanks to Anderson's comments about the chaotic elements of the film and how he would compare the film to Zucker bros. productions like Top Secret! and Police Squad! Today, we finally received a trailer for the film and it looks like it could be one of the best movies of the year. Check it out below:


I'm pretty sure my brain just exploded after watching that trailer. WOW. That's all I can really say. This movie looks absolutely perfect. I've attempted at reading the book before, but it's just too chaotic at times. However, it looks like PTA has translated the material from page to screen perfectly and I bet that this movie will work on every level. The chaos that didn't work for me in the book looks to fit the tone of the film adaptation much better. My anticipation could not be higher for this one. While it may not be the biggest Oscar contender, this could still be a classic for years to come. Inherent Vice hits theaters on December 12, 2014 in limited release and will go wide on January 9, 2015.
