So when do you think it will be shown to critics? Late November? Do you think this will make any festivals?

I love the trailer although it showed too much for my taste, I kind of expected a trailer in the fashion of EWS.

Anyway, my anticipation for this movie has skyrocketed.

That poster is so bland tbh.


Thought this was an interesting reaction. 


I hear her but that is the reality of that world.

Poster doesn't feel bland to me.  I got kind of a "classy" vibe off of it.  And, yes, the reality of THE world is that older men are often attracted to younger women (and vice-versa).

Alexander McQueen sewed secret obscene scribblings (phrases and pictures) into the linings of garments he worked on during his time as an apprentice at Anderson & Sheppard back in the late 1980s. (See Andrew Wilson's biography, p. 50.)

By the way, this does look very much like a Mike Leigh film. The rumor about PTA doing Mike Leigh may be correct.

I wondered that, but I'm not going there. A period piece featuring a small technical crew is generally going to look a certain way. Mike Leigh and Ken Loach have made a career of doing those kind of films. They flooded the market for standards when it come to independent British filmmaking.

Yes. I have seen the first two frames of the trailer and it looked like a PTA movie to me. In England.

It doesn't reveal too much of the plot.

Or does it?   :ponder:

LMAO just watch the trailer dude. It doesn't reveal too much of the plot.

No? And I saw them because it begins automatically on Twitter. I don't like to let my mind beginning to fill the holes with a trailer especially for a Paul Thomas Anderson movie—these rare gems. I imagined a whole part about Freddy's time in the war for The Master because of the trailers and teasers and was disappointed in a totally irrational way. I don't care about the plot.

Deceptive trailer for sure. Just to lure the mainstream audiences. Remember the Inherent Vice trailer?
Kinda has a Downton Abbey feel to it LOL.

Yes.  "Downton Abbey".  "The Crown".  Should definitely get the over-50 crowd into the theaters...or at least get their attention.

"You can sew almost anything into the canvas of a coat.  When I was a boy, I started to hide things in the linings of the garments.  Things that only I knew were there.  Secrets."

Try this experiment:  Rewatch the trailer, holding the idea that Woodcock is a homosexual in 1950's London...  Every scene could be viewed as consistent with that.   

Or a total misdirect.

i thought it would look a lot more "out there" considering inherent vice and the master, but i'm not getting that vibe from the trailer at all. maybe this is more low-key then I originally thought. there's some good moments, but nothing got me as exiting as the first the master teaser or twbb trailer.

also, hello oscars?

Maybe this illuminates that I am an incurable (delusional?) romantic, but this is looking to be my second favorite PTA concept yet. Inherent Vice did it for me, in a way I didn't know cinema could, the heart pangs and elusive memories. This is another beast. Closer to PDL's howl.

Maybe if There Will Be Blood and The Master were a couplet, this will match IV's romantic-haze in stark cuts and fine lines of lovers at odds.

Very excited for this Christmas.

It's not news that some people have seen it. I wouldn't care about what henry123 has to say, though.

It's different than what I'd envisioned in my mind's eye, but that was to be expected. A lot more white light than I thought there'd be. But I'm pleasantly surprised. It's unmistakably PTA-looking. It retains a lot of what The Master and Inherent Vice looked like but has less Robert Elswit and more recent music video PTA (obviously and understandably).
