It doesn't reveal too much of the plot.

Or does it?   :ponder:

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

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.
I'm so many people.

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.

And, yes, I've been making myself giggle by staring at that picture and intoning,

Rosebud...

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).

Thoughts on this thread? DDL is not the lead and the movie is "garbage"?

What Drenk said. I don't know if Twitter opinions are useful unless it's a first-hand account. This thread could get a bit cluttered with rumors and such if we obsess about that sort of thing.

Also, it looks like henry123 is an anti-Jewish crusader. (On Twitter of all places. Shocking.)

I've heard DDL is the lead, but you could argue they are "co-leads". This is from the same source I got the Reynolds Woodcock info.

If I was shown that trailer absent any foreknowledge or context, I would never guess it was a Paul Thomas Anderson film, and that fact excites me more than I can describe. The greatest filmmaker in the world is doing something he hasn't done before. Regardless of anyone's personal impressions of the trailer itself, if that doesn't give you a tingle, you should give up on movies altogether.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

Agreed. I'm kinda bummed about the lack of enthusiasm so far. Come on Xixax, do you know how rare a moment it is when a PTA trailer drops? It's almost as exciting as watching the film itself. We should be turned up to 11 right now. This was me when I first saw the trailer in my Facebook feed before immediately clicking over here.



It's amazing how with every first viewing of a PTA trailer - this one included - you NEVER know what to expect. Most of your predictions are usually proven wrong (in a good way). I don't know how the man does it.
