There Will Be Blood

Paul Thomas Anderson's 2007 film, There Will Be Blood will soon be making its "live" US premiere at NYC's United Palace on September 19 & 20. The event will include a screening of the film, along with Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood performing his score for it, along with help from the 50-piece Wordless Music Orchestra. Jonny, who wrote the score, will be playing the ondes martenot in both performances. Tickets go on sale Wednesday, May 14 at 10 AM via Wordless Music.

Listen to a suite from the score below...

How is this in any way self-indulgent? It's a great movie and this is a cool even. Go fuck yourself.

I love this movie until the last 20 minutes when it takes a giant, watery shit on my head.

Posted by Anonymous | May 6, 2014 12:14 PM

I agree with the various PR team posts who are "angry" that this self indulgent waste of energy was called out for being self indulgent

Posted by Anonymous | May 6, 2014 12:31 PM

Apparently it's "amazing." A 100% real poster on the internet said so, a couple of times. It was real, really.

Posted by Anonymous | May 6, 2014 12:34 PM

Guys Radiohead guy really needs our support. He's trying really hard on this and you guys are being mean!

Just because he's millionaire who's routinely showered with praise for taking shits, doesn't mean he doesn't have feelings!

Woof. 0/10 for the trolling comments on this one. I expected better.

Punk Drunk Love is by far PTA's worst movie

Posted by Anonymous | May 6, 2014 12:45 PM

For the record I enjoy all of PTA's movies but enjoyed this one the least. I think that my fave was probs The Master though, so disagree with 12:13 there.

Not quite as bad as the Cohn bros, who have had a couple dogs in their pretty great run.

The vapor that Radiohead still rides on guarantee ticket sales here, but still, why do this?

12:41 doubts science. probably thinks evolution is bunk and the earth is 6,000 years old.

it's science, twat-face. don't try to argue.

Brooklyn Vegan. VOMIT. And all you haters are a bunch of overwrought hipsters. Great movie, great musician, great score, orchestra.... Why is this bad? Bunch of morons who listen to garbage music looking for a reason to hate on things people like. Suck a bag of dicks.

Posted by PeopleHater | May 14, 2014 6:23 AM

Prices (w/ fees included):
$115 VIP ORCH
$105 LOGE
$95 PRIME ORCH
$85 MIDDLE ORCH
$75 BACK ORCH
$65 UPPER LOGE
$55 BALCONY

Pretty expensive but it's a movie plus a concert. My guess was $40 GA. Oh well.

Jonny Greenbacks amirite?

Posted by Anonymous | May 14, 2014 10:36 AM

Thanks 10:22 commenter for the price info. I can't get on the site -- maybe it's flooded? But although this is an incredibly appealing event, I'm not sure that I can justify spending kind of $ for it, nor persuade any of my friends to spend that to come with me. Bit disappointed.

Posted by Amy | May 14, 2014 11:22 AM

You're welcome Amy. I dropped $170 on the Middle Orchestra option. The site crashed at 10am but the ticketing site behind it did not. I feel like this is a really unique thing at a special venue so I went for it. Also, it's my bday present to myself.

Posted by Anonymous | May 14, 2014 11:32 AM

You're very helpful! I respect that someone else might want to spend what they are asking (or they wouldn't be charging it). Enjoy your birthday! :)

Posted by Amy | May 14, 2014 11:44 AM

City stuff. Try selling tickets to this anywhere else in this great big country and you'll get a knuckle sandwich.

Posted by Mr. Foot Fetish | May 14, 2014 12:56 PM

this is embarrassing, and honestly insane that someone values their forgettable "scoring" work enough to charge these sorts of prices indicates serious lack of shame / overblown self-importance

what a fat, bloated past-ones-prime self-celebratory presentation this is. No one cares about the music in this movie, no-one ever did. They just want you to play Creep.

Posted by Anonymous | May 15, 2014 12:34 PM

Agreed. These prices are despicable, and this whole concept is pompous as all get out.

Posted by Anonymous | May 15, 2014 12:40 PM

I want all the morons who paid for this stupidity to ask themselves one thing

If this was the same exact event but Johnny Greenwood was not playing with them, would you still be going?

(and if you honestly say yes, you are lying to yourself)

Posted by Anonymous | May 15, 2014 12:53 PM

^Not to mention if it was the same event without him, this would be a free show this summer in Prospect Park

^They had the same orchestra or something similar last year in prospect park for a screening of Beasts of the Southern Wild
For free. So shut the fuck up

You idiots are playing huge prices for Johnny Greenwood cause he is in Radiohead

You know it and they know it.

Cut the bullshit

if johnny wasnt doing this id still go. this movie/live setting seals the deal. really could give less of a fuck about radiohead at this point.

they also did 2001 w a 50 piece orchestra last summer and charged between $40-150

Posted by Anonymous | May 15, 2014 1:37 PM

I can justify it easily: movie at United Palace Theater ($25), Greenwood/orchestra concert ($40), unique experience ($20).

The ticket prices for the same show in the UK in August range from $24 to $126. Demand-wise, lots of tickets are available for all four screenings in the UK and US.

Posted by Anonymous | May 15, 2014 2:27 PM

because all you chumps would go see a 50 piece orchestra anyway
