The Post and Phantom Thread Trailers
With the start of the awards season right around the corner, the biggest question mark that could shake up the entire Best Picture race is Steven Spielberg's The Post. The mammoth duo of Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks star as the nation's first female newspaper publisher and the editor The Washington Post, respectively, who go to war with the government after printing classified information detailing deep-rooted lies that spanned four U.S. presidencies. With Spielberg in the driver's seat of a timely "people vs the government" biographical drama, The Post could be a big-time player at the end of the year, despite rumblings that the film has had its issues in the editing room. Check out the first-look trailer for The Post below.
The once untouchable career of acclaimed filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson has slowly transformed into a downward trajectory that he'll try to save with the upcoming release Phanton Thread, but it may be a bit of a tough sell. Three-time Academy Award Winner Daniel Day-Lewis takes center stage as a renowned dressmaker who falls for a strong-willed woman (Vicky Krieps) in 1950s London, and their romance throws his once perfectly-planned life into a tailspin. PTA has a knack for crafting bold and multi-dimensional characters through painfully detailed storytelling, and we should expect more of the same with one of the greatest acting talents of all-time. You can catch the debut trailer for Phantom Thread below.
