Must Watch: Second Trailer for Ridley Scott's Body of Lies
Warner Brothers has debuted the second full trailer for Ridley Scott's Body of Lies, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Russell Crowe. It's about a former journalist who is hired by the CIA to track down an Al Qaeda leader in Jordan. Officially, this looks like a vast improvement over the first trailer. Now it finally really looks like Ridley Scott film that could end up being one of the best of the year. There's now a very interesting political tinge in the trailer where they seem to be mocking America, but I love it, I love seeing the thrilling and gritty reality that Scott brings. And I said this the first time, too, but the dynamic between DiCaprio and Crowe looks fantastic. I really can't wait to see this and I hope I'm not the only one excited!

The first trailer bored me and caused what little interest I had of watching the movie, to be taken away. This one, however, is MUCH better. I won't be there opening day but I'll definitely check it out that weekend.

Crowe and Scott sure are bum buddies...You have expect Denzel to make an appearance as well. But I will make sure to see it because they work well together...and Leo has been getting better and better and better...can't wait

seems too predictable and like i got most of the film from the trailer. this story doesn't seem unique to me, and thus i am bored a bit by it. i do like their interactions though, so i may see it for that reason.

AWESOME! Way didn't they release this one instead? Looks VERY entertaining and Oscar-worthy.

wow...this is so much better than the first trailer.

i think scott wants us to think crowe is the bad guy... the one who sells out on dicaprio! but wouldnt that be too obvious for a movie that deals with international espionage? i think the story is what will make this movie inspite of the awe-inspiring special effects. i think the story will be layered and far more complex than what the trailer reveals. only then will the movie be more interesting than the trailer. but the Trailer looks great!

Looks lke a mix of Blood Diamod and Black Hawk down. Not thrilling and not involving. Ill still see this on the release date but lets not get hopes up high.

Okay , Ridley Scott at the helm with DiCaprio and Crowe duking it out? What's not to like. I am loving this 2nd trailer. 1st one was definitely not up to par. Movie looks good and
