As we slowly close in on the release date of Paul Thomas Anderson’s eighth feature length motion picture, a project otherwise still shrouded in secrecy has at least settled on one thing: it is in fact, after all the pomp and circumstance, going to be called Phantom Thread. Since we were secretly rooting for this all along, the news definitely receives the C&RV stamp of approval.
No less revealing, the news of the title has been unveiled due to the official site for the movie being launched by Focus Features earlier today. You can visit that site by clicking here.
For now, other information about the status of the project on the site does not reveal much beyond what we already knew (its synopsis almost exactly matches the one Focus released when principal photography got underway earlier this year) but it does reaffirm a Christmas Day release, which some folks had been skittish about considering how tightly under wraps the film has been until now.
We can only guess this means more major info is on the precipice of dropping but we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.
For now, the countdown continues to count down.
Special thanks to @j_shansky for helping on this one.
