Our video below shows Daniel Plainview (Daniel Day Lewis) as he is publicly disgraced into admitting he is a sinner at the local church by fanatical preacher Eli Sunday (Paul Dano).

Daniel Day Lewis of course is nominated for an Oscar, which we’re convinced he’ll win this Sunday.

‘There Will Be Blood’ opens in Irish cinemas on Feb 29th
