Title: City of Dreams Manila - Commercials

Leonardo DiCaprio & Robert De Niro Battle For The Same Part In Martin Scorsese-Directed Ad For City Of Dreams Manila
via The Playlist


Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro made two films together in the 1990s "This Boy's Life" and "Marvin's Room" and haven't appeared on the big screen together since, but we suppose this will have to do. Both are good pals of Martin Scorsese, and the trio have teamed up for what looks to be a series of ads for the casino City Of Dreams Manila. And the first couple of them are here, so sit back and see for yourself what glamorously cashing a paycheck looks like.

The story in these expensive looking ads is simple: both DiCaprio and De Niro are brought to Manila to fight it out for the same part.  And that appearance of Brad Pitt in the billboard in the first spot below? Rumor has it he could pop up in a future installments.

If this were real I...would watch this?

I was ready to mock it but i'd watch it too.

There is a part of me that feels like this kind of Scorsese upper flick can be summed up as "i am better than you" - "no i am better than you!!!" *motown cue* though

and i don't want to think that because i remember really enjoying wolf of wall street and i don't necessarily want to negate that opinion.
