Another oil film is on its way. “There Will Be Blood” opens in Europe on 8 February 2008, and is the epic story of the early years of the oil boom in California. Starring Daniel Day Lewis, and based on the 1927 book “Oil!” by Upton Sinclair, it is described in the pre-release reviews as a character study of one man, a miner and oil prospector, whose obsessive pursuit of wealth devours those closest to him. It is already being tipped for Oscars.
