Teaser Poster & Trailer for Paul Thomas Anderson's THERE WILL BE BLOOD!!!
Hey folks, Harry here with the teaser poster debut of THERE WILL BE BLOOD - the next great film from Paul Thomas Anderson - starring Daniel Day Lewis (aka I RULE). This one isn't due till the day after Christmas - and then only in a segment of the country - but I can not wait to see it. Everything from PTA has been fantastic and I'm sure this one will be no different. As for the teaser poster - I love the BOOK - and would love to see a copy of the script packaged like this. An inky, oily black book with a line of red. This is one of my most highly anticipated films of the year. Click on the poster for a gargantuan version.
Harry here again and man... this is everybit as different a trailer as the poster above. It's still, yet filled with motion. There's a haunted quality about it. And in the center... Daniel Day Lewis - who really is one of the most amazing actors we have today. Take a look...

Probably not. Cool poster though, can't wait to see Daniel Day Lewis in something again.

Can't wait for this movie

http://tinyurl.com/2smfvo Looks very interesting...been waiting for a power performance from DDL since Gangs of New York.

What the hell is this about?
Sept. 6, 2007, 6:42 p.m. CST
however, Magnolia isn't that great. Still, the opening of that film is one of the best ever. And the musical number wows me for sheer, WTF-ness.

Now he's aping Malick. But DDL's involvement gives me hope.

and Alien vs Predator. I'd even settle for as good as Mortal Kombat. What video game is this one based on?
Sept. 6, 2007, 6:53 p.m. CST
Ok, i get it. Boogie Nights - Scorsese, Magnolia - Altman, This - Malick. Ha, you are clever! O, oh Whats Punch Drunk Love? Sydney? To simplify his films like that is incredibly dismissive to his talent.

Just leave out Paul W.S. Hell, I'll trade him for Loni.

Its great, just great! Only wish the official web page they provided at the bottom was real.

Smurfette, thanks, I enjoyed that.

Dear lord in Heaven, I still have not forgiven PTA for PUNCH-DRUNK LOVE. Rarely have I ever hated a film as much as I hated that. That said, I rather liked BOOGIE NIGHTS and am interested in rewatching MAGNOLIA, but PUNCH-DRUNK LOVE raped my soul. But I will see THERE WILL BE BLOOD simply and only for the triumphant return of Daniel Day Lewis and his mighty Bill the Butcher 'stache.

what a great poster love the tagline and i thought i couldn't be more excited for this one... by the way, the opening ten pages of the script are a doozy

or some such place a few months ago, and it (i hate to say, as most talkbackers really liked it) bored me to tears. nice poster, though. maybe i'll revisit that trailer.

So is this bashing Christianity AND the oil industry? It's a leftist two-fer!
Sept. 6, 2007, 8:01 p.m. CST
it is unfortunate that two directors on the the opposite ends of the quality spectrum have a similar name. Daniel Day Lewis is a favorite of mine and I'm anticipating yet another great performance.
Sept. 6, 2007, 8:04 p.m. CST
What's the movie about?
Sept. 6, 2007, 8:05 p.m. CST
i thought "there's no way any actor can do justice to this character." then he cast daniel day lewis and i realized i was wrong. can't wait.

I bet this will be one of the year's big event films. PUNCH DRUNK LOVE is one of my favorite American movies of the past five years.

Where the fuck is Jigsaw on this poster?!
Sept. 6, 2007, 9:56 p.m. CST
and rightly so i hope. PTA is the best working american director. fact. by the way, punch-drunk love had beautiful mis-en-scene and great character study and it was just excellent.

You mean stupid yet full of pretension?
Sept. 6, 2007, 11:47 p.m. CST
It will make you look at things in a new way. And at the end you will feel like shit, and have no hope for humanity. That's what his movies do for me anyhow.

One of the most effective trailers I've seen in a long time (EVER?)...Lord knows if the movie will be as good, but that trailer makes me weep that I spend so much money on shite like the Halloween remake...
Sept. 7, 2007, 1:42 a.m. CST
we talked about that trailer before + that poster is awesome. the great thing about that red line IS that it's straight and doesn't look as you'd expect it...or something. I love it. but what about the film's alleged venice screening? what became of that? Got it canceled? I guess I missed some news...

Boogie Nights and Magnolia 2 of my fave films ever, also have alot of time for Punch drunk love, Daniel Day Lewis, its gonna get messy, or bloody, oh and saw this trailer a looooooooong time ago. still cannot fucking wait, the oscars have dissed him many times, not that anyone cares about those things anymore
Sept. 7, 2007, 6:26 a.m. CST
...and that's high praise indeed.
Sept. 7, 2007, 6:31 a.m. CST
It looks like DDL is fucking the baby in that one shot. I know he's not but look at it again. That dirty Butcher.
Sept. 7, 2007, 7:16 a.m. CST
get over yourself...AICN posted a link for the trailer way back too. it's thrown in here as an addendum to the poster news. if you can call this 'news'.

...is my favourite PTA film. I generally prefer his smaller efforts, such as PDL and Hard Eight (Sydney, whatever). Boogie Nights is really good too, but I think Magnolia -- while it has moments of real resonance and is beautifully cinematic -- does a little too much flailing around, crying and wringing its hands, for my tastes. I have to say that There Will Be Blood is about as hyped for a PTA movie as I've ever been, and that has more than a little to do with Daniel Day Lewis: Untouchable Thespian Genius (I think the official AICN talkback spelling is actually "thesbian", but I'm just a crazy rule-breaker). If this movie sucks, it will remain eminently watchable because of his presence. But, judging by the ominously ambiguous trailer, it's not going to suck. And I loves me a good period piece -- western or no -- so I'm there for sure.

Seriously, when I heard about this movie last year, I ran to the library to pick up the Upton Sinclair book that its based on "Oil", hoping to get some movie spoilers. Sadly, thats what it takes for me to read a book. not to get culture, but to maybe find some inside info on a movie. The book is a bit of a hard read,(cuz of its old-timeyness) but it holds up VERY well for a work of political/religious satire that was written after the turn of the century. Few months back, I got the script off someone on the IMDB boards. It is a bit of a reimagining of some of the things in it, and it begins and ends at different places than the book did. Without spoiling anything, i can say that 1. DDL's character "Plainview" is present in every single scene of the script. From his days of starting a small oil empire to the time he becomes a big shot oil baron. 2. There is a nice little mining scene about a third of the way in that reads like it COULD be one of PTAs long one-take shots. Im crossing my fingers. 3. The title dosent just refer to blood as in oil. There are a some gory deaths, (a few of them by guns) I guess saying anything more might piss people off but if i guess if you want to know anything else just let me know.

Throw in a Mandy Moore head or a Jennifer Garner head on DD-L's body, and you have got yourself an audience!

for the vid link? Thanks!
Sept. 7, 2007, 11:36 a.m. CST
Looks awesome. Don't see how PTA can fuck this up. Of course, even a Brett Ratner-directed Daniel-Day Lewis vehicle couldn't be all that bad.
Sept. 7, 2007, 12:43 p.m. CST
is a perfect movie. p e r f e c t
