New little preview:


Lovely shots! That score is amazing. Totally reminds me of Steve Reich. I watched Dunkirk today and, although the soundtrack has some good and appropriate elements, I was disappointed with the music on the whole. I thought, man, if only Jonny Greenwood had done the score for this film! Great work by Hoyt Van Hoytema, though.

Really bummed this doesn't go wide until January 19th.  At first I was wanting to see this on Christmas, but the realized that's only a limited release.  Ugh.

Not to mention, just a warning: it's probably best not to go into anything related to PTA anywhere on the Internet.  Even seemingly innocuous stuff.  I had one little thing about the film spoiled that I'd rather not know, and I'm still really finding it hard to stay away, out of boredom and curiosity.

I didn't care all that much about Inherent Vice because it was adapted material, but it's a great feeling to be truly excited about a PTA film.  Sure, I was excited about CMBB, but that came with the assurances he was doing his own riff on Oil!.  But I digress.

As if it isn't bad enough we have to wait till the 19th, we also have to settle for DCP projection while NY/LA flaunts 70MM prints.

Odd that there doesn't seem to be any 35mm showings anywhere. Also, it looks like those of us who don't live in NY or LA have to wait until at least January 12th to see it. Hopefully they will do some general advance screenings before the expansion like they did for Inherent Vice.

I have seen a 70mm print of IV. My sight isn't the best there is but it looked like regular 35mm. I don't see the point of making those.

I guess it's no so much that you're getting a "clearer" image like with DCP, but the fact that the film is twice the size means it doesn't have to be blown up as much to fit the screen. So, you're kind of getting a denser image, if that makes any sense.

Yes. When I saw 'Inherent Vice' on 70mm in the cinema, it was truly magnificent. The colors and the movement (of the film -- stability) was wonderful. I'd love to see 'Phantom Thread' in 70mm. Of course, 35mm would be great as well. I wonder if they did "negative cutting" on this film. It can, in some instances, be observed, in a DCP or Blu-ray, for having a slight wobble between certain cuts (at least I have noticed this on some films).

Having seen both 35mm and its 70mm blow-up, for real for real that the 70 even seemed a lil crushed when compared to the 35's colors. ;_;

DCP is fine, I actually think blowing up 35mm to 70 is dumb, like someone else said I saw Inherent Vice on 70mm looked just like a 35mm projection.

I think 35mm screenings would be cooler, but having seen it on 35mm I actually would like to see it next on a DCP, soak in the photography from a perfect scan. Just my opinion though, great film no matter how you see it though.

New clip here. There is some dialogue, which could be considered lightly spoilerish, so don't watch if you want to go into the movie fresh. http://ew.com/movies/2017/12/15/phantom-thread-daniel-day-lewis-vicky-krieps-clip/

Nice. There aren't really any plot spoilers there, but it certainly revealed a side of DDL's performance that hasn't been seen in the trailers.

I know this is technically old news, but based on what I've seen, this promotional photo is one of the best that have accompanied any PTA movie. I've been avoiding trailers and whatnot, but, in a way, this image alone has enough ballyhoo in it to compensate for that:



Actually, I saw another one near the ocean that might be even better? I'll take a closer look at all the photos after I've seen the movie. Still, this one is great, and it almost seems like a variation on that bravura shot from PDL: Barry and Lena meeting at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel, silhouetted against the ocean, etc. I'm betting the corresponding shot in Phantom Thread will differ somewhat, as that's typically how it goes with publicity photos, but still...

It's just a really handsome image. The background, while almost blurred into abstraction, adds a nicely decorative touch, and the precise combination of the period and London's atmosphere just seems so excitingly new for a PTA movie. The textures of the coats also appeal in a way that I'm not sure how to adequately intellectualize outside of noting that I really admire the style and the quiet pairing of colors -- very nice.

Plus, we're seeing something here which, by necessity, was never present in TWBB (as far as I recall...): Day-Lewis' charismatic and beaming smile, which shows up in interviews often, and some films. I haven't seen Vicky Krieps in anything, but her appearance here suggests equal strengths: warmth, an endearing naturalism, etc. I also don't know too much about the movie or how, exactly, it might match or depart from the sweetness of this image. At this point, though, it's just nice that Anderson and Day-Lewis seem to be returning to a more foregrounded sense of mirth and affection (or more so than their work in the past few years, at least?). I'm just hoping to see romanticism return to Anderson's work in a more sustained manner than before.

EDIT:

I just looked around, and a thumbnail image for a preview screening trailer offers a glimpse of how this moment might actually appear in the film -- a comparable or adjacent moment, anyway. It seems even more extraordinary here in its proper visual context, with the coolness of the cinematography. The sense of weather and place here is excellent. It's a very atmospheric bit of business, aided not only by the way it's lit and color-timed, but also the dense but low-key sense of color and architectural history receding into the background.



The tone in this shot is more ambiguous, though. Actually watching the film will surely inform my thoughts on it, but I think there's still a sense of warmth here, even though the mood seems (deliberately) more complex and uneasy -- not as buoyant. It's hard to read. Still, as with the promo image, I'm reminded of PDL. I'm pretty sure the precise staging of the actors here hasn't really been seen in a PTA movie since PDL (although, the shot in PDL wasn't a medium shot like this one).

I do wish I could see the film already instead of rhapsodizing about its promotional photos.
