You’ve seen Phantom Thread, perhaps multiple times. You’ve been playing Jonny Greenwood’s score on repeat. And now you’re wondering what to do until the Blu-ray arrives this April. Well, Paul Thomas Anderson has you covered. In special screenings around the country, you might have heard a few songs play before the film begins, and now Tiff has revealed those were hand-selected by the director for a special pre-viewing playlist.

They’ve now revealed the full list of songs, clocking in at 23 and ranging from Beyoncé to Bruce Springsteen to Rihanna to Neil Young to Carly Simon and far beyond. Of course, there’s also some Bernard Herrmann thrown in for good measure.

Paul Thomas Anderson Shares His 23-Song ‘Phantom Thread’ Mixtape, From Beyoncé to Rihanna

Paul Thomas Anderson Shares His 23-Song ‘Phantom Thread’ Mixtape, From Beyoncé to Rihanna
Paul Thomas Anderson is here to help you set the mood before your “Phantom Thread” viewing. While Jonny Greenwood’s Oscar-nominated score is well worth numerous streams, the director has curated his own mixtape of 23 songs he suggests you listen to before watching his romance drama. Anderson shared the playlist with Tiff., All 70mm screenings of “Phantom Thread” at the Tiff Bell Lightbox theater will play the songs before showtime.

The mixtape is pretty incredible on its own, featuring hits from Beyoncé, Rihanna, Carly Simon, Neil Young, and more, but it’s even better for those who have seen “Phantom Thread” and understand the relationship between Daniel Day-Lewis’ Reynolds Woodcock and Vicky Krieps’ Alma. Rihanna’s “Stay” is especially appropriate for the two lovers.

The full “Phantom Thread” playlist is below, courtesy of Tiff. The film is up for six Oscars at the Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director.

A Tribute to Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds

2016 claimed a long list of entertainers, but the grim reaper’s most unexpected one-two punch came between the final two holidays with the death of movie icons Carrie Fisher on December 12 and her mother Debbie Reynolds a mere 36 hours later. With the premiere of the documentary about the pair, “Bright Lights” on HBO this weekend, we at the Geeks site thought we should take a look at their considerable contributions to film.

Let’s start with Carrie, who was born in Hollywood, USA on October 21, 1956, the daughter of Debbie and singer/actor Eddie Fisher. She appeared on stage with her mother throughout the late 60’s and early 70’s, even getting her first small screen credit in the 1969 TV movie “Debbie Reynolds and the Sound of Children”. It wasn’t until 1975, when she would make her big screen debut opposite Warren Beatty (quite an arrival) in Hal Ashby’s hit Shampoo.

In later years, she said, “The two hardest things I ever did in ...

12 Disturbing “Would You Rathers” Inspired By Classic Horror Films

FX

Three little words, one big decision. And you thought Snog, Marry, Kill was bad.

Chances are, if we ever found ourselves trapped in a horror movie, most of us would like to think that we’d be the noble character, fighting the bad guys to the end and if necessary, dying to protect our friends.

But in reality, most of us would push our best friend into the arms of the killer and run for the hills. Because dying at the hands of a serial killer or a ghost has an awful way of ruining your day.

So what if the choice isn’t as easy as live or die? That’s where those awful three words come in – would you rather – and when they’re inspired by the scarring fears of iconic horror films, all bets are off…

Reese Witherspoon Teams with Matt Damon in 'Downsizing'

Reese Witherspoon Teams with Matt Damon in 'Downsizing'
Reese Witherspoon has signed on to follow up her critically-acclaimed performance in Wild with Downsizing. Ironically, the actress was initially attached way back in 2009 when we first reported on the project. Paul Giamatti and Sacha Baron Cohen were also attached to star at the time for director Alexander Payne, but it never moved forward, as the filmmaker went on to make Best Picture nominee The Descendants just a few years later. Matt Damon signed on to star back in November, playing a man who believes his life would be far better off if he shrunk himself, in what is described as a social satire.

Back in 2009, Reese Witherspoon was set to play a woman who met the shrinking man, then played by Paul Giamatti. It isn't known if she will still play the same role in this incarnation. Deadline reports that timing may be an issue with Reese Witherspoon, since

‘The Neighbors’ Preview Video: Will Reggie Scare Amber Into Loving Him?

Watch HollywoodLife.com’s exclusive preview of Reggie’s half-baked — and definitely not Dick Butkus-approved – scheme!

Three little words, one big problem. On the Jan. 10 episode of ABC’s The Neighbors, Reggie (Tim Jo) devises a plan to get Amber (Clara Mamet) to finally drop the L-bomb, and HollywoodLife.com has your first look at his questionable methods.

Operating under the assumption that humans are more emotionally available when they’re completely petrified, Reggie plots to watch a horror movie with Amber, thus inspiring his desired confession. Clearly, he has learned very little about humans during his stay on earth.

Of course, getting Amber to confess her love is only part of Reggie’s problem on this week’s episode. When Jane (Megan Park) interrupts Reggie’s date with Amber, the extra-clueless extraterrestrial is forced to make a choice between the two ladies!

Euro 2012: Gary Lineker takes the pun out of everything coming our way | Martin Kelner

The BBC's bullish buildup for England's quarter-final against Italy is to blame for this latest let-down

I blame the BBC. All week the Corporation was dangerously bullish. "From here on, every England game will be live on the BBC," presenter Gary Lineker trumpeted at least twice during the Portugal-Czech Republic game, without the slightest suggestion that might turn out to be fewer than three games. And commentator Jonathan Pearce chimed in: "All the England games from now on are live at the BBC. There's a growing belief that the English boys can do it, and why not?"

Those of you preserving these columns in the official Screen Break 2012 souvenir binder will know from previous writings that I am as stupidly optimistic as the next man – provided the next man is someone who actually put money on England to win Euro 2012 – but I am not sure it was entirely wise of

Lethal Bizzle advises Gary Lineker on street talk: He shouldn't use "sick"

Gary Lineker has been given advice on street slang by Lethal Bizzle. The Match of the Day host has jokingly used the phrase "That is sick" on a couple of occasions after playing a clip of Bizzle's England Euro 2012 track 'Three Little Words'.

"If he starts saying dench it would be enough to get him in the dench gang," he told The Sun. (more)

Lana Del Rey – Born to Die Review

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Lana.

Del.

Rey.

Three little words which, over this past year, have come to gain a gravitas beyond their minute stature. This album – Del Rey’s debut – is then a full stop at the end of a story that the build up, the hype and the controversy have been writing for her. And yet, given the full stop, the story isn’t over yet.

Lana (Elizabeth Grant) came to this release riding inside a snowball that started rolling with the appearance of Video Games online, and its subsequent release. That self-made promo of found footage and recordings, introduced the world to Lana’s mix of classic Hollywood, high-class, glamour and a grittier blue-collar Americana and when it appeared online it quickly caused a storm. Most importantly though, it also introduced her music.

Regardless of everything else that surrounded this snowball, adding to it on its way,
