    Blood Diamond Trailer~

    http://www.apple.com/trailers/wb/bloodd ... large.html

    Pretty well done trailer. Not much of a Dicaprio fan but I heard his accent is pretty accurate in this one. Djimon looks to be the acting powerhouse in this one as usual, and J.Con is gorgeous as usual. Hopefully they'll make use of her acting abilities also. Looks like somewhat of a cliche storyline, but its done by the director of Glory and The Last Samurai, so looks definately to be worth the $10 at the movies. Anyone else interested?

    same guy who played that leader slave from Amistad = you know its gonna be a good movie

    DiCaprio, despite being under a shitload of tabloid pressure awhile back, has done some pretty good performances...The Aviator was a very good movie even though it was way too fricken long, didnt get to see The Departed but i heard it was pretty good too, but DiCaprio has also done some subpar works before.

    DiCaprio has been really improving his acting a lot since I first saw him in Romeo + Juliet in middle school. I loved his performance in Catch Me if You Can. I might be interested in seeing this one too.

    Plus it's got Jennifer Connely, the little girl from Labyrinth all grown up. XD

    Looks okay, just not a big fan of Dicaprio

    The Aviator and the Departed completely changed my view of DiCaprio. He's really doing some good stuff.

    I can’t see why anyone would hate on DiCaprio.   He’s a wicked actor, ever since The Basketball D iaries or whatever his first movie was.  Must be m ore Titanic backlash, or maybe The Beach backlash  lol.

    Catch Me If You Can, The Aviator, The Departed, al l great movies he’s done kinda recently.

    what was the movie called where Leo played a Teacher's pet sex toy? I remember the film used to get played on IFC, in the late 90's, about 2-3 times a week.

    What subpar works? I can't recall any. Not arguing i'm just curious.

    I can't wait for this movie if he puts on another Oscar worthy performance like he did in The Departed.

    Leo's (fake) accent drops soo many times in the TRAILER... They should have left it alone -.- But it does look good.

    Oh and didn't realize who the other actor was until I watched the trailer, Djimon has been good in everything I saw him in. He was awesome in Gladiator.

    I was gonna say The Beach but i forgot the title of it, and i didnt wanna say "The Island movie" cause The Island and The Beach are totally different lol.....that was a pretty subpar movie to me, the point of the movie just slapped you in the face for about 2 hours and never really got suspenseful...i cant think of anything else DiCaprio has been a bad actor in right now, Romeo+Juliet i thought was actually a good movie cause it was so inovative...and Titanic, even though it was the biggest "gag me" love story ever written, had some good acting in it.

    Catch Me If you Can was an awesome movie, and so was Gangs of New York. He's in alot of really sweet movies, and he's sometimes the reason why alot of them are so hot.

    Blood Diamond is doing a funny thing with its Myspace advertising. It's friending people and trying to get them aware of the diamond industry and its negative impact on SA life. Linking to CNN and Time about the trade. It's obviously trying to promote the movie, but instead of going on and on about how omgthismovieisgreat the movie is, they're talking about the ACTUAL situation, which I think is a smart move.

    Now if we could only convince women that the truest icon of love should be something other than a diamond...
