Winner of two Academy Awards® and widely praised by critics, director and screenwriter Paul Thomas Anderson’s sprawling American saga, THERE WILL BE BLOOD debuted on DVD April 8, 2008 from Paramount Home Entertainment. Named by more than 200 critics as one of the top 10 films of 2007,THERE WILL BE BLOOD is “as unique in the ferocity of the storyteller’s filmmaking vision as it is in the story he tells” (Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly).
Mercurial actorDaniel Day-Lewis “gives one of the great elemental performances in modern cinema”(Peter Travers, Rolling Stone) as oilman Daniel Plainview, a role that has earned him an Academy Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role, a Golden Globe® for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture—Drama, a BAFTA Award for Best Leading Actor, a Screen Actor’s Guild Award® for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role and numerous critics’ society awards. Called “a modern cinematic visionary” (Kenneth Turan,Los Angeles Times), Paul Thomas Anderson mines the very roots of American capitalism and religion to reveal a stunning portrait of this country’s savage underpinnings, which are still turning the wheels of contemporary society.
The THERE WILL BE BLOOD two-disc DVD explores the historical context of the film through a montage of vintage images hand-selected by Paul Thomas Anderson that served as inspiration for the film’s look. The DVD also takes viewers behind-the-scenes of the filmmaking process through a featurette, deleted scenes and a look at dailies. The film also will be available on a single-disc DVD.
