PTA to Drop 'One-Reeler' Short Film on Netflix In Support of Thom Yorke Album

A member of Radiohead has a new album out soon, and that means Paul Thomas Anderson has a new short film to back it.

Thom Yorke's latest solo effort, ANIMA, will be available for download on June 27 and PTA's one-reeler 12-minute short film of the same name, featuring music from the album, will debut on Netflix the same day.

What's more, the teaser trailer that was released with today's announcement advertises a limited engagement for the film in select IMAX theatres on June 26, which happens to be PTA's 49th birthday.

Leonardo DiCaprio Reportedly Turned Down New PTA Project For Guillermo Del Toro

*tap tap* This thing on?


We're baaaaaack, and with some intriguing news. Earlier this week, Variety reported that Leonardo DiCaprio has signed on to star in Guillermo Del Toro's upcoming Nightmare Alley.

Some subsequent reporting by THR's Borys Kit has revealed that, in order to work with Del Toro on the picture, Leo had to turn down a reunion project with his Revenant director Alejandro G. Iñárritu and a mysterious project from the man himself!

The reporting goes no further than that single tidbit, and the Phantom Thread press tour was the first instance in recent memory where PTA openly suggested he was confident in the next movie he'd make, but still, it appears the project may actually be close to taking flight!

More details will be served to you as soon as we have them!


6/14 UPDATE: Variety now reporting that Bradley Cooper is likely to replace Leonardo DiCaprio in the upcoming Del Toro film -- the story in no way insinuates that Leo will circle back to the PTA project that was previously passed on, but it's still a considerable development.

Pre-Order Phantom Thread Blu-Ray Today!

As we announced below, Phantom Thread will be released on Blu-Ray APRIL 10TH, with a nice selection of special features added to the disc! You can pre-order it now by clicking here, and click either of the images above to see them in higher resolution!

Paul & Co. have released a trailer!

In honor, this will also mark the return of one of this site's oldest features:

which will be the Criterion Collection's incredible release of Rebecca, which Paul has referred to numerous times over the course of the promotional run having been a key influence on the inspiration behind Thread.
“It’s not your standard love story,” states Anderson. “It’s more peculiar for sure. A lot of directors have tried and failed to make Rebecca. I’m probably next in line, but it’s a different story. I’m a large aficionado of those large Gothic romance movies as the old masters might do them. What I like about those kinds of love stories is that they’re very suspenseful. A good dollop of suspense with a love story is a nice combination!"

We will have the full 20 year archive of Paul's personal selections back up next week!
