WATCH: Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro Star in Martin Scorsese’s Luxury Resort Commercial (VIDEO)
Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro are finally appearing together in the same Martin Scorsese project. But it’s probably not what you’d expect. The trio star in a new teaser for a short film that’s basically a commercial for City of Dreams, a new resort in Manila and Macau. Watch below.
The commercial, featuring the stars, looks like a traditional movie trailer, with its snappy dialogue and quick editing. The setup is that Scorsese has invited DiCaprio and De Niro, his two most famous leading men, to Manila without telling them that they’ll be auditioning for the same role.
We see some friendly competitive banter between DiCaprio and De Niro about beating out each other for the part in an official video posted to YouTube by City of Dream Manila. In the fun video, we see Scorsese talk animatedly about how much he likes the resort. And we’re promised additional footage from “The Audition” in the future. It’s all a little strange, and it’s an advertisement for a luxury resort on the other side of the world that none of us can afford. But, hey, DiCaprio and De Niro! Together! For Scorsese! Watch the video below, and tell us what you think.
