DreamWorks has unveiled the full length Revolutionary Road trailer. This is the first movie that reunites Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet as a couple after the highly-acclaimed Titanic in 1997.

Based on the celebrated novel by Richard Yates, Revolutionary Road is the story of a young couple (Oscar nominees DiCaprio and Winslet) trying to find fulfillment in an age of conformity (mid-1950s). Trapped in a world of encoded convention, they dream without faith, as lies and self-deceptions build to explosive consequences.

This could well go one of two ways, clearly an Oscar baiting film, the direction , cinematography, direction and acting all look fantastic but Mendes last two attempts have been found lacking a certain something which his debut movie had in bucket loads garnering all kinds of awards. Could this be the film to get Mendes back to those heights, while gaining both DiCaprio and Winslet those ever elusive wins (nominations seem a dead cert).

The movie is directed by the Oscar winning Sam Mendes, the man behind American Beauty, Jarhead and Road to Perdition, and screenplay was written by Justin Haythe (The Clearing), and is due here in January.
