This question already has an answer here:

Finally got around to watching There Will Be Blood (2007) last night, and I'm somewhat confused by the title. I've got some possible references, and I'm not really sure if any of them are viable:

  1. A reference to the men who died in the various mines
  2. A reference to all the people Dan Plainview killed
  3. A reference to the "war" that he had with preacher Eli Sunday
  4. A reference to his relationship with HW

Can anyone help me understand this?
