See the first trailer for Paul Thomas Anderson's Phantom Thread

The first trailer for Paul Thomas Anderson's Phantom Thread has just arrived, ahead of the films release in February of next year. A new film from the acclaimed director is always an event in itself but if what Daniel Day-Lewis says is true, it could also mark the last time we see the actor grace our screens.

Set in the glamour of 1950s post-war London, renowned dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis) and his sister Cyril (Lesley Manville) are at the centre of British fashion, dressing royalty, movie stars, heiresses, socialites, debutantes and dames with the distinct style of The House of Woodcock. Women come and go through Woodcock’s life, providing the confirmed bachelor with inspiration and companionship, until he comes across a young, strong-willed woman, Alma (Vicky Krieps), who soon becomes a fixture in his life as his muse and lover. Once controlled and planned, he finds his carefully tailored life disrupted by love.

It's a change in tact from the director in terms of tone and story but the trailer does highlight the sumptuous photography we have come to expect from him over the years.

Phantom Thread is released in the UK on February 2nd 2018.
