He replied in the thread:

"It was Phantom Thread, as has been previously mentioned. No change there. There isn't much I can say about it. It didn't give much of a sense of plot but did have almost the tone of a thriller to it, a bit of a departure from PTA's normal vibe. I didn't know I was about to watch it when I did and it was quite late, so I'm having trouble remembering anything else specific."

Yep. That's another "insider" on Reddit.
I'm so many people.

this is it:
https://www.reddit.com/r/paulthomasanderson/comments/70o6am/untitled_paul_thomas_anderson_film/

you can click her name and see her posts. there's actually no reason not to believe her. survey people are always random and barely remember anything. i mean there's no reason to believe her either. but like i said.

I still don't believe this because of the lack of detail, but hopefully we get the official news soon

I'm inclined to believe it on the basis that if she were making it up, she would have thrown in more details to sell the lie. "I saw it, but I dunno, it was kind of thrillery, I guess, I don't really remember," is a terrible lie, but an utterly believable truth.
That's what fiction is for. It's for getting at the truth when the truth isn't sufficient for the truth.

her update

Again, it was late at night and I didn't know it was about to happen. I was just told to watch a trailer. I didn't even know it was for Phantom Thread at first. And not much happened. What kind of details do you want exactly?? A second by second description? It was DDL and he was measuring things and there was a voiceover and ominous music. You know. A trailer.

Biggest reason I'm dubious outside of lack of details, is that all the rumors state this is PTA doing Mike Leigh, so I'm anticipating more intimate footage

Alright, I know how bad this looks, being a first time poster posting SPOILER details, but I can tell you that DDL's character is named Reynolds Woodcock(classic Paul), the film is mostly about an artist and his muse and it has a "Gothic, moody" vibe. Based on what I know, this reddit poster may be telling the truth.

Ok. I can imagine PTA giggling while writing Woodcock and deciding to keep it.

This was my response as well, haha.

I don't want to violate my NDA, but I can also tell you the film is locked and everything we've seen does have THE PHANTOM THREAD label on it.

Any word on a possible trailer release? And where did you hear this from?

Looks like the trailer will drop next month and I legally can't really say anything about how I know this, which sounds like a cop out. Completely understandable to question my posts. I take no offense.

PTA doing Leigh?  So there.  There anyway.  Day-Lewis as Thewlis?  Yes, please!  Kinda rolls off your tongue.

Can you confirm (or deny) this rumoured plot:
Spoilers- DDL plays a pretty misogynist fashion designer who meets a young model, falls in love, and she hooks him onto drugs and they develop some sort of master-slave relationship, with him as the submissive.
