Of course a Paul Thomas Anderson film about the love life of a fashion designer is going to look beautiful. So the following trailer for Phantom Thread should surprise no one:
On top of that, we also have a striking poster for the film:
Not to take away from the trailer’s own merits, but it almost doesn’t matter what Phantom Thread looks like. It’s a new Paul Thomas Anderson film starring Daniel Day-Lewis in what’s being touted as his last film role. That's required viewing regardless of the plot. It is a curious trailer, though, indicating another evolution for Anderson and a quieter role for Lewis. Notice on the poster the film has an R rating solely for language. No bowling pin bludgeonings in this one!
Phantom Thread comes out December 25.
