Trailer Of The Week - Week #33 - There Will Be Blood

As anticipation for Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master grows, Trailer Of The Week takes a few minutes to step back and re-assess the trailer for his last masterpiece, There Will Be Blood. Unexpectedly long - its surely possible to tease what is essentially a character study in less than two minutes - the approach is predictably anchored by a combination of Daniel Day-Lewis narration and Jonny Greenwood's unsettling, industrial, score. It's effective. TWBB's trailer sums up the film's main themes - greed, religion, family - well, sucking you in to the inky-black world of Daniel Plainview with gravitas hidden behind well-managed threat.

Trailer Of The Week is a regular Film Intel feature which picks a different tasty trailer of delectable goodness every week and presents it on Sunday for your viewing pleasure. Sometimes old, sometimes new, sometimes major, sometimes independent, sometimes brilliant, sometimes a load of old bobbins: always guaranteed to entertain.
