Ahead of its release Stateside, a new trailer for Paul Thomas Anderson’s Phantom Thread, the movie billed to be actor Daniel Day-Lewis’ last, has debuted online. As well as some new footage, the film also features some information as to where U.S. audiences can check out the film a month early.
Set in the glamour of 1950’s 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.
U.S. cinema-goers can catch the film in cinemas on December 25th, but those who reside in Los Angeles or New York will be able to view special preview screenings on November 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 28, and 30. Information on how to get one of the limited seats to the previews is available at www.phantomthreadscreenings.com.
