Untitled PTA Film Set For 2025 Release... IN IMAX


The hits keep on coming...

Today, Warner Bros announced their intention to release Paul Thomas Anderson's forthcoming 10th feature film...

...on August 8th, 2025... in IMAX...

Okay, so the first part feels... well, like a fucking eternity. bluntly. But in combination with the second part and in combination with the fact that this is by a million miles the biggest production budget PTA has ever had... and in combination with the fact that WB is deeming this an "event" indicates that the swings here really will be as big as we've all been guessing.

We still don't know what the hell the movie is, per se, and that's one of the most exciting parts of the PTA fan experience, but to editorialize, it really seems hard to imagine such resources would be poured into another pure Pynchon adaptation. And if it is that Vineland adaptation we've all been guessing on, well then Mike DeLuca and Pam Abdy deserve some kind of medal of valor for pushing their chips in on something like that.

We here at C&RV will be perfectly happy with whatever subject matter that is ultimately cooked up here, of course.

But folks, let's call a spade a spade: this. is. major.

More soon, we hope/guess/think
