Now you can drink your milkshake up, because Paramount Home Entertainment has sent us the DVD cover art (thumbnail to your left, bigger version below) and specs for their upcoming release of Paul Thomas Anderson’s “There Will Be Blood”, starring Oscar winning actor Daniel Day Lewis and one very tasty milkshake. Head on below to see the DVD cover art (it looks very moody, almost like a horror movie) and what to expect from the disks.
A sprawling epic of family, faith, power and oil, THERE WILL BE BLOOD is set on the incendiary frontier of California’s turn-of-the-century petroleum boom. The story chronicles the life and times of one Daniel Plainview (Daniel Day-Lewis), who transforms himself from a down-and-out silver miner raising a son on his own into a self-made oil tycoon.
When Plainview gets a mysterious tip-off that there’s a little town out West where an ocean of oil is oozing out of the ground, he heads with his son, H.W. (Dillon Freasier), to take their chances in dust-worn Little Boston. In this hardscrabble town, where the main excitement centers around the holy roller church of charismatic preacher Eli Sunday (Paul Dano), Plainview and H.W. make their lucky strike. But even as the well raises all of their fortunes, nothing will remain the same as conflicts escalate and every human value – love, hope, community, belief, ambition and even the bond between father and son – is imperiled by corruption, deception and the flow of oil.
The THERE WILL BE BLOOD two-disc and single-disc DVD are presented in widescreen enhanced for 16:9 TVs with Dolby Digital English 5.1 Surround, English 2.0 Surround, French 5.1 Surround and Spanish 5.1 Surround and English, French and Spanish subtitles.
