First Trailer for Daniel Day-Lewis and Paul Thomas Anderson's PHANTOM THREAD
The first trailer for director Paul Thomas Anderson's Phantom Thread has been released. This is Daniel Day-Lewis' final film, the film he will end his acting career with, and it looks like he gives yet another incredible performance. The subject matter of the film may not interest a lot of people, but it will catch the eye of awards season. It's also not going to be a huge blockbuster hit, but if you've enjoyed the films of Anderson and Day-Lewis, then it's something you might be interested in checking out. Here's the synopsis for the 1950s-set relationship drama.
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 opens on December 25th and expands in January 2018. Watch the trailer and tell us what you think.
