I didn't see the film - it got bad reviews which I never usually listen to anyway. Hopefully someone will put the snippet up on youtube at some point.

DC isn't mentioned in the credits, so it never came up on my Netflix search. I'll rent it and try to pull the DC part and post it as mermayd suggests.

I just started watching it and he's in it for less than 30 seconds on a BAFTA red-carpet reel. It's just older footage from a perhaps 2007? Nothing to screencap or anything :wink:

Quick edit: I'll keep watching to see if anything changes, but for now it's just like I said before. I'll update again when I'm finished!

We should probably hunt on youtube and see if it is already up there first, before you spend any money.

No real money, the dvds just show up in my mailbox, like magic! :wink:
I just did a search and I saw lots on the movie, but nothing DC specific. Let me know

I remember them both being there - at one point, Daniel is catching up to Thandie, spreading her arms and obviously telling her, how beautiful she looks.
The top notch acting in the Weisz/Craig/Spall 'Betrayal' is emotionally true, often v funny and its beautifully staged with filmic qualities..

You’re All Stars — Some More Than Others
By Brooks Barnes
Hollywood has never been more conflicted about its movie stars. On one hand, studios, desperate to reduce costs, are increasingly making the premise the star: “G.I. Joe” from Paramount, a take on the board game “Candy Land” from Universal, “The Jungle Cruise,” born out of the theme park ride, from Disney.
On the other hand, studios want more assurances that their casting bets will pay off in ancillary distribution windows. You hear things like, “Sarah Jessica Parker can’t open a movie, but her name can help trigger upfront distribution payments overseas and it guarantees a decent pay TV deal.”
Today, producers and financiers got some extra help in navigating star bankability. The Ulmer Scale, an entertainment database company, released its biennial look at star power. No surprise: “There’s a major recession in bankability among top actors,” said James Ulmer, who founded the company in 1997 after leaving the Hollywood Reporter, where he started the analysis. (Mr. Ulmer has written freelance articles for The New York Times in the past.)
Will Smith, Johnny Depp and Brad Pitt are the top three most bankable stars – and remember this takes into consideration a whole lot more than box office draw – while Reese Witherspoon, Julia Roberts and Kate Winslet are the three top women (in slots 9, 12 and 13 on the overall list). Mel Gibson and Jim Carrey suffered the biggest drops, while Shia LaBeouf and Daniel Craig topped the list of the biggest gainers.

I've added it and bumped to the first position. I'll be glad to add it to my YouTube 'to do' list. :roll:

So I was kinda lazy and fast forwarded through some of the parts via Google Video; thus not watching the entire thing :roll: . GG do you recall where the part with Thandie Newton and Daniel Craig was? The parts I saw had her in the beginning for a bit but was she in it later too?

On Showbiz Tonight, they mentioned Daniel among men over 40 that women love. In my opinion, he is the best looking of all the men in that list.
