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. That’s it. But still, it’s an opportunity to see DiCaprio’s beard and De Niro’s half-hearted mugging mix it up, while Scorsese tries to play referee. 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. We’ll see! For now, watch
