"The Departed" trailer on ET Thursday
  • The first trailer for The Departed was previewed on ET Wednesday, and will air on Thursday's show. There's barely a mention or glimpse of Matt in the preview, and no mention of Scorsese, and it's billed as a Leonardo DiCaprio exclusive event. The ET text preview is here.

    An online video of the preview is here, apparently courtesy of the HOD Network. Thanks to Mario.


  • Update: The full version of the trailer as shown on ET is available here, courtesy of marciesleo at The Totally Unnecessary Departed Board.

  • Further update: The trailer is now online in either Quicktime or Windows Media here.

    What is it about Leonardo di Caprio? Didn't realise it was going to be a Leo star vehichle (if I could I would insert a sarcastic smiley in here). Is he a producer or something? Or perhaps an oscar marketing ploy by the film company - push leo for best actor and push Matt into supporting actor slot. Hey, now I have a dream: Matt wins best supporting actor for Departed and best actor for the Good Shepherd - in the same year!

    "Matt wins best supporting actor for Departed and best actor for the Good Shepherd - in the same year!"

    That would be impressive! And, the preview looks promising, I can't wait to see it :)

    Leo and Scorcese

    Leo and Scorcese have made a bunch of movies together. Scorcese pushes him, but Leo's just not good enough to be awarded. The preview showed Leo, Matt, and Jack Nicholson. In the tag line for the preview, they showed a picture of Leo and one of Matt side by side (no further mention of Nicholson). I think they know who the stars are. It's about time Matt got an acting Oscar--he really is that good! Looking forward to ET tonight.

    I have the same dream, though slightly modified: Matt wins Best Actor for "The Good Sheperd" and Ben wins Best Supporting Actor for "Hollywoodland." That would be very cool.

    That made me so mad when the ET special made the movie seem all about LEO! GRRRR

    The film looks very appealing and I'll be there with bells on opening night. Leo getting hyped as being the only one worthy of watching in it has me seeing shades of Syriana and GC.

    'That made me so mad when the ET special made the movie seem all about LEO!'...I watched that on YouTube yeah i definitely see where your coming from 'it is called annoying'...

    ... "Matt wins best supporting actor for Departed and best actor for the Good Shepherd - in the same year!"

    'Joyce' agree with your comment... & yep about time Matt got an acting Oscar..he deserves it, and he is that good definitely!

    Absolutely. Nearly ten years later and I know I'm still smarting from his loss for GWH.

    The trailer that aired tonight included Matt in it later on, but it opened with Leo and Nicholson. Maybe the film opens with Leo and leads into Matt's character so it's being shown chronalogically?

    Nice idea but trailers are never that organised. They are often put together by people with no connection to the studio, with a sole aim of attracting people to the cinema (not necessarily under the correct pretences).

    Can anyone confirm the identity of the shirtless cad in bed with the leggy and supine Vera Farmiga in the full trailer?

    Thanks.

    A much better trailer this time; makes it out to not be an all Leo all the time movie. And isn't that Matt's character in bed with Vera's character? Aren't they supposed to be involved? After seeing her in "Running Scared" I like her a lot. I was surprised to see Mark Walhberg's character get to cold-cock Matt's. I hope it only happens once. :-) I think this is going to be one of those "pay close attention to it" movies because there's a lot going on. But I'm sorry, in an effort to look "tough" Leo just looks like a pissed-off, sulky teenager.

    She's unfaithful. I now think it's DiCaprio, but I'm still not sure.

    Arnzilla,

    I think it's Leo but after multiple viewings I'm still not completely sure (and it is in the double-crossed section of the trailer).

    I think its Leo ... not to sure, but i'm gonna go with him.

    I think it is leo, especially in the eyes is where it looks like him.
    From: (Anonymous) Date: July 29th, 2006 10:17 am (UTC) (Link)
    Actually yeah i see where you coming from with the eyes thing a bit..so i'm gonna go with Leo a little more again.
