Ridley Scott's Body of Lies International Trailer Debut

The first international trailer for Ridley Scott's next feature film, Body of Lies, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Russell Crowe, has just debuted. Body of Lies is yet another Middle Eastern drama, this time about a former journalist who is hired by the CIA to track down an Al Qaeda leader in Jordan. Thanks in part to the brilliant mind of Ridley Scott, this looks like a step above all the typical Middle Eastern movies we're seeing nowadays. The one thing I noticed the most - Scott has done a great job of making both DiCaprio and Crowe look like I've never seen them before! Scott's Black Hawk Down was a fantastic modern war movie and now I'm wondering whether his follow-up to American Gangster will be any good or if he's still stuck in a mediocre slump. Thoughts on Body of Lies?
Watch the first trailer for Body of Lies:
Body of Lies is directed by legendary filmmaker Ridley Scott, of everything from Alien to Blade Runner to Gladiator to Black Hawk Down to Kingdom of Heaven American Gangster. The script was written by Oscar-winning screenwriter William Monahan, of Kingdom of Heaven and The Departed, and is based off of the book of the same name written by David Ignatius. Warner Brothers will release Body of Lies in theaters everywhere on October 10th this fall.
