I have to say, the trailer for The Departed looks pretty damn good. It's kind of weird to see DiCaprio, Damon, and Wahlberg sharing the same bill, mostly because they always seem to be the ones fighting for the same roles. Kind of like how Matthew Perry, Bradley Whitford, and Steven Weber all being in Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip seems like an elaborate "3 Stars, one Slot" exercise on Fametracker.
Anyway, Leo and Matt and Marky Mark will all have to work pretty hard to escape Jack Nicholson's shadow. He looks like he's ready to snack on some scenery. Also, Leo's on his third consecutive Scorcese movie, so one would hope he's got that routine down by now. All in all, it looks fun. Maybe the fact that the Gangs of New York/Aviator prestige-Oscar-frontrunner pressure is largely absent from this project will be a good thing.
It certainly looks way better than the clip for this movie. Yet another "wealthy suit discovers that money isn't everything" flick? How can that miss?
