Watch the trailer for Paul Thomas Anderson’s Phantom Thread, starring Daniel Day-Lewis
Focus Features has released the trailer for Paul Thomas Anderson’s Phantom Thread. The film stars three-time Academy Award winner Daniel Day-Lewis (Lincoln, Gangs of New York), who is collaborating with Anderson again after 2007’s There Will Be Blood. You can check out the trailer for Phantom Thread in the player below, and you’ll find the new poster in the gallery underneath.
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.
The film also stars Lesley Manville (Maleficent), Camilla Rutherford (The Darjeeling Limited) and Vicky Krieps (A Most Wanted Man). Written and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson and produced by Megan Ellison and JoAnne Sellar, Phantom Thread is set to open Christmas Day, December 25, 2017.
