There Will Be Blood (R1) in April - Artwork added

Paramount Home Entertainment have announced the Region 1 DVD release of There Will Be Blood on 8th April 2008. A sprawling epic of family, faith, power and oil, Paul Thomas Anderson’s There Will Be Blood is set on the incendiary frontier of California’s turn-of-the-century petroleum boom. The story chronicles the life and times of one Daniel Plainview (Daniel Day-Lewis), who transforms himself from a down-and-out silver miner raising a son on his own into a self-made oil tycoon. When Plainview gets a mysterious tip-off that there’s a little town out West where an ocean of oil is oozing out of the ground, he heads with his son, H.W. (Dillon Freasier), to take their chances in dust-worn Little Boston. In this hardscrabble town, where the main excitement centres around the holy roller church of charismatic preacher Eli Sunday (Paul Dano), Plainview and H.W. make their lucky strike. But even as the well raises all of their fortunes, nothing will remain the same as conflicts escalate and every human value – love, hope, community, belief, ambition and even the bond between father and son – is imperilled by corruption, deception and the flow of oil.

Available in barebones Single-Disc and as a Two-Disc Special Edition, extras on the latter include:

  • Featurette: Dailies Gone Wild
  • Featurette: The Story of Petroleum
  • Additional Scenes
  • Trailers
