'Blood Diamond' Stills

Synopsis :: Set against the backdrop of civil war and chaos in 1990′s Sierra Leone, Blood Diamond is the story of Danny Archer (Leonardo DiCaprio) – a South African mercenary – and Solomon Vandy (Djimon Hounsou) – a Mende fisherman. Both men are African, but their histories as different as any can be, until their fates become joined in a common quest to recover a rare pink diamond that can transform their lives. While in prison for smuggling, Archer learns that Solomon – who was taken from his family and forced to work in the diamond fields – has found and hidden the extraordinary rough stone. With the help of Maddy Bowen (Jennifer Connelly), an American journalist whose idealism is tempered by a deepening connection with Archer, the two men embark on a trek through rebel territory, a journey that could save Solomon’s family and give Archer the second chance he thought he would never have.

The trailer for Blood Diamond starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Connelly, and Djimon Hounsou was recently released. Out in theaters Dec. 15. In the gallery was super high quality Blood Diamond stills — enjoy!

    BUT HE SUCKS!

  • sofia

    im curious to see the movie……

  • fofo

    i liket ;)

  • Stacey

    Thanks Jared! The movie looks amazing! I don’t usually find Leo attractive but he looks hot in this. And in the Departed. He is really growing up and coming into his own as an actor. I can take him seriously in these adult roles now. Jennifer looks gorgeous as always and all three of the actors look great. Can’t wait to see this!

  • lula29

    Leo looks so much better with age. I can’t wait to see this movie.

  • Claudia

    The movie looks very good, and it is such a reality for so many people in Sierra Leone. Leo looks great and has turned into a more mature actor.

  • madmaxine

    i overheard someone on the subway talking about this movie and how
    great it was. i am excited to see it, although the director, edward
    zwick, is a hack…

  • Suzanna

    I saw the trailer before the Departed at the theater on Friday – it
    looked amazing. I think Leo is an underrated actor, he was great from
    his first flick Whats Eating Gilbert Grape and he’s still amazing, The
    good thing about him is that he chooses his roles carefully. And he
    supports the environmental issues too!

  • Jennifer

    OHHH! MY! Leo looks amazing! :) He’s an Oscar winner for sure in this! He makes this role his own. Cannot wait until December when it comes out!!

  • Yes?

    The accent is not going it for me. Something about Leo’s accent. I just can’t put my finger on it. It seems like he is TRYING hard to make that accent. But I will watch it.

    This is the reason, I hate DIAMONDS! People die a senseless death because whores like Lindsay can wear it.

  • http://www.justjared.com Hil

    Yeah, I don’t love the accent but I think he does a great job acting. He has matured through the years.

  • Anna

    I usually can’t see Leo as anything but an actor who plays teens, or a teen trying to play adult parts, I think it’s becuase he just looks too young/boyish, but he looks hot and manly buffed up and dirty in those stills.

  • http://leodicapriofan67.skyblog.com Laura

    Leonardo is absolut perfect
    Sorry, but my english is limited

  • selma

    has leo been working out or something? he absolutely was HAWT in The Departed and so does he looks in these pics… yummy more eyecandy!

    NELSON MANDELA & THE EXTRAS FROM “BLOOD DIAMOND” MOVIE

    Local Heroes
    With reference to a story that has been circulating on the internet the past week, I’d like to tell you the REAL story of a group of very special youngsters who were extras in a Hollywood film and have a chance at a new life because of it.

    All of the youngsters are South African and students at the Vukuzenzele Special School in Bizana on the Eastern Cape in South Africa.

    They are all part of a group from the Amputee Club of South Africa.

    There is no charity known as the Eastern Cape – the Eastern Cape is the name of the province where the school is located.

    None of the youngsters are victims of the civil war in Sierra Leone.

    And, as far as I know they are not orphans.

    They were extras on the movie set while it was filmed on the Wild Coast in South Africa.

    Vukuzenzele Special School
    One of the extras is a boy named Nkululo Mnisi. He is a 16 year old student at the Bizana’s Vukuzenzele Special School in South Africa in the Eastern Cape province.

    Nkululo and his friend, Simon, a charming young (10 year old) amputee play a crucial role in pivotal scenes in the controversial Warner Bros film, Blood Diamond. Simon and Nkululo and 6 of their friends – all schoolmates from Bizana’s Vukuzenzele Special School (rural Transkei) – spent more than a week working with the Hollywood stars, Leonardo Dicaprio and Djimon Hounsou, on the WB movie set when it was filmed on location in South Africa near Port Edward.

    Setting the record straight
    Nkululo was born in South Africa, and lives with his mother in Mt. Ayliffe when he is not at the boarding school. Nkululo’s arms and legs were NOT cut off by machete-wielding rebels (as first reported in the New York Post).

    He is a bi-lateral above the knees amputee. [He is certainly not a victim of any the civil wars and his disability comes from the fact that he was born with a deformity in one foot and the other foot didn’t develop properly.

    At first it was a below the knee bilateral amputation; but after an infection, there were more operations and now he is what is considered an above the knee bilateral amputee.

    Another thing, his classmates are not “cruel” -as stated in the same article – they are a loving caring close-knit group of friends – who have nicknames for one another as do many American kids.

    Nelson Mandela
    Just a few months after filming ended, Mnisi and his friends from school have all been fitted with new light weight prosthetics.

    Nkululo has been practicing the past 2 weeks because the knees tend to lock and his new height makes him a bit dizzy.

    He is a proud youngster and his dream is to play soccer: but, for now, his goal is to walk tall when he meets Nelson Mandela in a special celebration that is planned in Mt. Coke in the Eastern Cape Province, South Africa, in November.

    The acccent is good i think!

    I thought he sounded a bit on the australian side at first, but i think it’s right! I have friends from South Africa who are always mistaken for Australians with their accents, so i’m happy!

    i don’t like conelly, but everything else seems wonderful!

  • Ancient
