There Will Be Blood Poster

Ain’t It Cool News brings us this teaser poster for Paul Thomas Anderson’s There Will Be Blood. This is certainly one of my most anticipated movies right now, simply because I love Anderson. Magnolia and Boogie Nights are two of my favorite movies, ever. So I’m happy to see the guy finally work again, and I’m happy to start seeing posters for the film.

As for the poster itself, well, it’s a teaser, so it isn’t trying to show us much. I kind of like old book cover look. It indicates that this film takes place in the past, it is a subtle reference to the fact that the movie is somewhat based on a book and it is perhaps indicative of the tone that I’m imagining the movie will have. But it really isn’t much.

    Hey, I actually like this poster a lot. It sort of looks like a worn out Bible and with Blood in the title, those two things mix to be sort of creepy.

    You know, I didn’t even notice the Bible connection originally. But you are right Andrew, it’s there and it does make the poster more interesting.
