Phantom Thread Vicky Krieps Daniel Day Lewis PosterWe’ve been waiting for it, and now, here it is, a trailer for Paul Thomas Anderson’s Phantom Thread. The film has been kept under wraps for most of its production, but now we can see that it’s a rich, high fashion romance tale that breeds both tension and wonder.

Daniel Day-Lewis has said that this is his final film before retirement, so we can expect him to go all out, while Anderson creates a timeless yarn that’s sure to provoke and thrill in equal measure.

Phantom Thread hits theatres this Christmas, check out a synopsis and trailer below.

Synopsis: 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.
