His final project is Phantom Thread, and the first official trailer has just dropped.
Starring Lesley Manville and Camilla Rutherford, the story centres around the fashion scene in 1950s London.
Day-Lewis plays revered dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock whose life is disrupted when Alma (Vicky Krieps) comes into his life and becomes his muse and lover.
The film is directed by Paul Thomas Anderson and marks the first time the two men have worked together since Anderson directed the actor in 2008’s There Will Be Blood – one of three films alongside My Left Foot and Lincoln to win Day-Lewis an Oscar. Surely that’s a good omen?
Phantom Thread will be released on Christmas Day 2017
