Phantom Thread Movie - Daniel Day-Lewis and Paul Thomas Anderson

The end of this year will mark what is supposed to be the final performance from Daniel Day-Lewis in a film that reteams him with There Will Be Blood director Paul Thomas Anderson (seen together above). As we recently found out, Phantom Thread is the name of the film, and now we have an official synopsis to provide us with some insight into the story.

There Will Be Blood image

Paul Thomas Anderson has a new film on the horizon, one that’s remained shrouded in secrecy. Even though the film is set to be released in about two months, it didn’t have an official title. Until now. Anderson’s new film, which will reunite him with Daniel Day-Lewis, is now officially called Phantom Thread. Read a brief plot synopsis below.

boogie nights 20th anniversary 2

“I got a dream of making a film that’s true. True and right and dramatic.”

This line of dialogue comes courtesy of porn producer Jack Horner (Burt Reynolds) early in the sprawling 1997 epic Boogie Nights, from then-upstart writer/director Paul Thomas Anderson. In the intervening period, Anderson has lived up to that dialogue, maturing into his generation’s best filmmaker, the spiky and unique auteur behind Punch-Drunk Love, Inherent Vice, and the new century’s best film, There Will Be Blood.

Boogie Nights, which turns 20 today, is not Anderson’s first feature—that would be Hard Eight from 1996—but it’s a poster child of the major concept that he’s returned to in his other films. His filmography has focused on everything from porn to the oil industry to Scientology, but the core theme of his work, as highlighted by Boogie Nights, is the necessity of family.

Watch a New Paul Thomas Anderson Haim Music Video

Before 2017 is over, we’ll be treated to a brand new Paul Thomas Anderson film, which will also be the (alleged) swan song of Daniel Day-Lewis. However, those seeking some new Anderson material before the end of the year are in luck: the Inherent Vice filmmaker has helmed a new video for the band Haim, and it’s delightful. Watch the Paul Thomas Anderson Haim music video below.

Haim still has Something to Tell You, and it’s in the form of a short film directed by none other than Paul Thomas Anderson (There Will Be Blood, Boogie Nights).

The 14-minute short film is a relatively simple video, comprised of nothing more than steady tracking shots of the three sisters who make up the pop-rock trio as they perform a series of songs. But it’s miles better in quality than most music videos today, eschewing dazzling but distracting visuals in favor of a focus on the fantastic music.

original Anchorman plot

Ron Burgundy and the Channell 4 News Team turned to cannibalism an early draft of Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy. As wonderfully outlandish Adam McKay‘s comedy it, it was initially a little crazier. Ron, Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate), Brick Tamland (Steve Carell), and the rest of the team once had to find their way down a mountain side, as they battled deadly orangutans.

Below, learn more about the original Anchorman plot.

Paul Thomas Anderson Daniel Day-Lewis Movie

Last month, we got word that Paul Thomas Anderson had begun shooting his latest movie, a fashion drama set in 1950s London that will reteam the director with his There Will Be Blood star Daniel Day-Lewis. The details we have on the movie are still pretty sparse, but the good news is we know when we’ll get to see it since the release date was announced this week at CinemaCon.

UPDATE: Focus Features has officially announced the start of production on Paul Thomas Anderson’s untitled movie and their press release includes this plot description: “The new movie is a drama set in the couture world of 1950s London. The story illuminates the life behind the curtain of an uncompromising dressmaker commissioned by royalty and high society.” There is no release date, but the film will be released later this year. The original article follows below.

We don’t even know the title of Paul Thomas Anderson‘s new movie and it already feels like an event. First of all, it’s a Paul Thomas Anderson movie and any time the director of Boogie Nights, Magnolia, and The Master decides to make a new movie, it’s time to celebrate. Second of all, this film will reunite him with the infamously picky and famously masterful Daniel Day-Lewis, who hasn’t made a movie since winning his third Oscar for 2012’s Lincoln. Either of these by themselves would be a reason to keep this one on your radar, but a full-fledged There Will Be Blood reunion makes this one of the most exciting projects to come together since…well, There Will Be Blood.

The first photos from the set have arrived and while they don’t shed too much light on this mysterious project, they do reveal Day-Lewis and Anderson one again sharing the same space and that is enticing enough.
