First Teaser for Don Hertzfeldt’s ‘World of Tomorrow Episode Two: The Burden of Other People’s Thoughts’
5 hours ago
It seems a little too generous to be getting the first previews for our two most-anticipated films of the fall on the same day, but we won’t complain. Following the trailer for the next film from Paul Thomas Anderson, the first teaser for Don Hertzfeld’s sci-fi sequel World of Tomorrow Episode Two: The Burden of Other People’s Thoughts has landed.
The follow-up to his 2015 Oscar-nominated short film, we’ll hopefully soon learn about distribution details, but in the meantime, check out the teaser below, following an excerpt from our review, which is quoted in the trailer.

‘Phantom Thread’ Trailer: Paul Thomas Anderson and Daniel Day-Lewis Reunite

In two months, a new Paul Thomas Anderson film will be in theaters, but not just any Paul Thomas Anderson film — and not only his first as his own cinematographer, but also the final performance from Daniel Day-Lewis. Ahead of a Christmas Day limited release, Focus Features have now unveiled the first trailer.
Set in 1950s London, it follows Day-Lewis as Reynolds Woodcock, who designs fashion for upper-class British citizens under his label of The House of Woodcock.

It’s ironic, of course, for a film that shows us oceans suddenly freezing on a sunny day in Rio de Janeiro, tidal waves drowning Dubai, and a heatwave »
