Phantom Thread on 4K UHD, Blu-ray, DVD & Digital Download in June

20 March 2018

Three time Oscar winner Daniel Day-Lewis earns his sixth Academy Award nomination as Reynolds Woodcock, the fastidious and controlling fashion designer whose glamorous and carefully tailored life is disrupted by love in Phantom Thread, arriving on Digital, Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand in June from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.

Daniel Day-Lewis reunites with multi-Oscar nominated director, writer and producer Paul Thomas Anderson in this spectacular film praised as a “pure delicious pleasure” (The Guardian). The Blu-ray, DVD and Digital versions include special bonus features to give viewers a more in-depth look into the behind the scenes of the film. Phantom Thread won the Academy Award for Best Costume Design by Mark Bridges and also received five nominations for Best Picture, Best Actor in a Leading Role, Best Director, Best Actress in a Supporting Role and Best Original Score.

Daniel Day-Lewis (There Will Be Blood, Lincoln) mesmerizes in his role as the obsessed but elegant couture designer and is joined by Academy Award nominee Lesley Manville (Maleficent, Another Year) and Vicky Krieps (Hanna, The Colony) in this “ravishingly beautiful” (NY Times) film. Written and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson (There Will Be Blood, Boogie Nights), Phantom Thread is set in the glamour of 1950's post-war London. Renowned dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock (Day-Lewis) and his sister Cyril (Manville) are at the centre of British fashion, dressing royalty, movie stars, heiresses, socialites, debutants and dames with the distinct style of The House of Woodcock. Women come and go through Woodcock's life, providing the confirmed bachelor with inspiration and comfort, until he comes across a young, strong-willed woman, Alma (Vicky Krieps), who soon becomes a fixture in his life as his muse and lover.
