    1. True Detective, with 2013: Steve McQueen directing Leonardo DiCaprio, Cate Blanchett, Barkhad Abdi, and Lupita N’Yongo.
    2. Why are we calling it “Untitled Paul Thomas Anderson Film”? Didn’t it confirmed to be called Phantom Thread?

    • I still receive press releases from the studio that call it untitled. Until that changes, it’s untitled.

    Circuit Breaker Question:

    In honor of the release of It, which I am thinking maybe has the best ‘horror-centric’ death of all time (the first one), what are some of the most memorable death scenes in horror movies?

    Cinephile Showdown: (for movies you have not yet seen, decide which you think you will personally prefer).

    Molly’s Game OR Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
    Wonderstruck OR Coco
    Goodbye Christopher Robin OR Murder on the Orient Express
    The Greatest Showman OR The Current War
    Lean on Pete OR Lady Bird
