Paul Thomas Anderson's New Film Set For Christmas Day Release


It's official.

Focus Features confirmed while presenting their 2017 slate today at Cinema Con that the new, untitled Paul Thomas Anderson & Daniel Day-Lewis reunion project will grace movie screens on December 25, 2017 (via Jeff Sneider).

For now, it's unclear whether the Christmas bow is a limited engagement before expanding at a later date, or whether it will be released nationwide at that time. One could probably look to the There Will Be Blood release as a template, which hit New York and LA markets in December of 2007 but didn't see national exhibition until January

Time will tell.

  2. Its Christmas Day if you intend to avoid confusion with Christmas Eve, smartass.

  3. Folks, I'm disappointed. We all know it's properly "The Christmas."

  4. It's called "The Phantom Thread" with Daniel Day-Lewis, Lesley Manville and Richard Graham, and we thought it would be at Cannes already. Maybe Venice if he needs longer for editing.

  5. Technically, it's Christmas's Monster. . .

  6. Richard Graham isn't too big a name but he has had minor roles in at least three DDL movies before: My Beautiful Laundrette, In the Name of the Father, and Gangs of New York.
