There Will Be Blood

Several months ago I was shocked to learn that Upton Sinclair wrote something on the order of 98 books in his lifetime, many of them hugely popular, and yet most people (myself) included only know him for "The Jungle." Amazing how the passage of time shoves things under the bed.

Anyway, Paul Thomas Anderson's "There Will Be Blood" is an upcoming adaptation of a Sinclair novel called "Oil!" but if Anderson made it up no one would have likely thought twice about verifying the claim. At least it's pretty safe to say no snobs will be coming out of the woodwork to insist the book is better.

The teaser and trailer can be viewed here.
