The actor says goodbye to the cinema with this project by Paul Thomas Anderson.

A little over a year ago,  Paul Thomas Anderson  and  Daniel Day-Lewis  met, after the acclaimed  There Will Be Blood , for a new duet film. The director then kept the secret on this project shot in England. We only knew it would be a story taking place in the world of fashion during the 1950s.

Since these first mysterious elements, it was learned that the feature film in question would be called  Phantom Thread  and that it would be the latest film by  Daniel Day-Lewis , who announced that he wanted to retire as an actor last June. To become a fashion designer?

The trailer for  Phantom Thread  has just been dropped. Punctuated by Jonny Greenwood , the Radiohead artist who had already composed the music for There Will Be Blood and Inherent Vice , she is actually portraying a fashion designer who multiplies creations and intimate adventures until he meet the woman who will change her life (Alma, played by  Vicky Krieps ) by becoming her muse. A love story, therefore, that should come out in  “limited release”  at Christmas in the United States. To be eligible for the next Oscars? In France, it will wait until February 14, 2018 to discover on the big screen.
