Focus Features has released the first official trailer and theatrical poster for the dramatic film, Phantom Thread. Phantom Thread reunites Oscar winner Daniel Day-Lewis with writer/director Paul Thomas Anderson. The two previously collaborated on the Oscar winning film, There Will Be Blood. Phantom Thread also marks the final film with Daniel Day-Lewis before he retires from acting.
In addition to Daniel Day-Lewis, the cast includes Lesley Manville and Vicky Krieps. Phantom Thread will open in theaters on December 25, 2017.
The Plot: 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.
