Phantom Thread trailer: Daniel Day-Lewis' final film

There are few things more exciting in film than a Daniel Day-Lewis and Paul Thomas Anderson movie.

He plays fictional British post-war dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock, and he seems to embody the role in much the same way he embodied previous parts, including President Abraham Lincoln in Steven Spielberg's biopic "Lincoln", and ruthless oil man Daniel Plainview in another Paul Thomas Anderson drama entitled "There Will Be Blood". Anderson also directed three videos for Radiohead's last album A Moon Shaped Pool - "Daydreaming", "Present Tense" and 'The Numbers'.

This is the fourth film Greenwood has now scored for Anderson. Women in Woodcock's life come and go, until a romance with young, strong willed-Alma (Vicky Krieps) disrupts his carefully tailored life, with love.

According to Variety Day-Lewis' spokeswoman, Leslee Dart, confirmed the news saying, "Daniel Day-Lewis will no longer be working as an actor". The film opens in select theaters December 25.

It's Govt's call to link a/cs, Aadhaar: RBI
The RBI issued the clarification to quell confusion raised by certain reports that Aadhaar linkage was not mandatory. It said in a statement the requirement remained in force under anti-money laundering rules.

Phantom Thread was announced a year ago but the title was kept under wraps until recently. Until then, get excited for Phantom Thread, and wonder to what degree Day-Lewis' character is a projection of PTA himself.

The film looks to be cloaked in threads of beauty and obsession, high culture and ambition, and it seems very possible Day-Lewis-who earned his second Oscar in Anderson's There Will Be Blood-will go out with his fourth Best Actor Oscar, making his record nearly untouchable.

With his latest film, Paul Thomas Anderson paints an illuminating portrait both of an artist on a creative journey, and the women who keep his world running.
