Today we've got the poster and first two shots of There Will Be Blood, the new Paul Thomas Anderson movie starring Daniel Day-Lewis. Though I hated Magnolia's mix of pathetic characters and thirty extra seconds of camera masturbation at the end of every scene, I think between Boogie Nights and Punch Drunk Love, PTA's latest deserves a chance.
I don't even know what it's about. But I don't have to. I'm all like, "Hey, what's it about?" And then the stuffed elephant on my bed goes, "Bill the Butcher's in it. There will be blood."
You're right, I'm there. Sorry I ever doubted you, elephant.
This time around, instead of tackling pornography or raining frogs, Anderson brings us an epic about a family who strikes oil at the turn of the century. And The Beverly Hillbillies it ain't. There Will Be Blood focuses on the greed, corruption and other problems that stem from being a Texas oil prospector in the early 20th Century.
You know, in case a plug from an inanimate object wasn't enough for you.
