No, Inherent Vice didn't have nearly this many advance screenings for the public though I'll be curious to see if they open this up beyond NY/LA. Without any inside knowledge I would assume that Focus doesn't think playing the secretive game will do the film any favors once it's out in the world. PTA has a crazy passionate fanbase and if they can get the film in front of enough of those people hopefully they can get some buzz going for this that translates to a wider audience.

The initial announcement of these screenings was for guilds only so the timing for this is making sure everyone has a chance to see it before they vote for year end awards which starts happening right after Thanksgiving. But it's pretty cool of them to open those same screenings up to film nerds and PTA heads. And hopefully this will pay off.

Clearly their "Oh, the screenings are sold out but give us your e-mail address anyway" gambit is part of their marketing strategy.

I was recently thinking about how PTA first met DDL. If I recall correctly, Day-Lewis really admired Punch-Drunk Love, passed along some glowing remarks to Anderson, and that eventually led to them collaborating on There Will Be Blood. Do I have that right?

I'm really not sure what type of movie Phantom Thread is going to be, but perhaps it's the eccentric, romantic love story that DDL wanted all along. This is not to say that he didn't gravitate toward TWBB; interviews suggest DDL had a real affinity for that material. It is interesting, though, that Anderson's most optimistic and explicitly romantic movie, which is opposed to TWBB in many ways, drew him into the collaboration in the first place.

At any rate, I'm really excited to see a strain of romanticism come to the fore in Anderson's work again. It was definitely there in The Master and Inherent Vice, but it seems like Phantom Thread's romantic aspects will be much more sustained and explicit, whereas there were a lot of other things competing for our interest in the last two films.

Don't know if I dig the title. Should be retitled as "Phantom Beaver".

Is that based on your viewing of the film or conjecture?

A new poster is apparently on display at Ahrya Fine Arts, where the first two screenings are taking place. This photo was tweeted out:

It could have been worse, with just the giant head and the text "last film of DDL" slapped underneath it.

Well, I wouldn't want to ask the dude in that hypothetical situation how it was, whereas I do want to ask everyone at this screening how it was.

There's an embargo for social media. We'll have to wait for Xixaxers.

That red "E.T finger" like glow is a camera sensor light right? Also isnt the DDL head positioning just the Lincoln poster all over again?
