Trailer: P.T. Anderson's 'There Will Be Blood'

Director Paul Thomas Anderson sticks his head out, five years since. This preview is a stunner.

Based on the Upton Sinclair novel Oil!, set during the 1920’s oil boon in Southern California, There Will Be Blood stars Daniel Day Lewis as Plainview, an oil developer whose greed and corrupted disposition has turned a town full of disfranchised workers and his own flesh and blood (Paul Dano, last seen in Little Miss Sunshine) against him.

Dates are subject to change, but at the moment both There Will Be Blood and Joel & Ethan Coen’s No Country for Old Men are slated to debut on November 21st. And they’ll likely be paired together just as closely once the year’s end top ten lists come rolling out. Maybe a telling sign why P.T.’s trailer appeared out of thin air a scant 24 hours or so after No Country’s did.
