PHANTOM THREAD - Official Trailer & Poster, Directed by Paul Thomas Anderson

Looks like Daniel Day-Lewis is going out swinging. This appears to be less esoteric than PTA's last couple of films and he is serving as his own DP. At the very least, 35mm is very much alive and on full display here. If any other director (and lead actor) made this, I probably wouldn't give two sh*ts about seeing it (I've never found any movie about rich people's problems interesting in any way), but with P.T. Anderson... I'll be first in line. If any other director (and lead actor) made this, I probably wouldn't give a damn about seeing it (I've never found any movie about rich people's problems interesting in any way), but with P.T. Anderson... I'll be first in line. 

I wrote a little somethin' for The Playlist about this [Read HERE]

The synopsis reads as follows:

"Set in the glamour of 1950s post-war London, renowned dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis) and his sister Cyril (Lesley Manville) are at the center of British fashion, dressing royalty, movie stars, heiresses, socialites, debutants and dames with the distinct style of The House of Woodcock. Women come and go through Woodcock’s life, providing the confirmed bachelor with inspiration and companionship, until he comes across a young, strong-willed woman, Alma (Vicky Krieps), who soon becomes a fixture in his life as his muse and lover. Once controlled and planned, he finds his carefully tailored life disrupted by love. With his latest film, Paul Thomas Anderson paints an illuminating portrait both of an artist on a creative journey, and the women who keep his world running. Phantom Thread is Paul Thomas Anderson’s eighth movie, and his second collaboration with Daniel Day-Lewis."

“Phantom Thread” will be released on December 25th.
