The Titanic Duel, Leo & Kate, Reunited

Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet are reuniting for the first time after 10 years since the 1997 box office hit "Titanic".

Kate and Leo are set to star in "Revolutionary Road," based on Richard Yates' 1961 book, directed by Winslet's husband, Sam Mendez. The story follows a 1950's surburban family in the struggle between following their true desires or conforming to the constraints of society.

Will they be able to make another hit? Personally, I don't think it will be anything like the movie that launched both of their careers. It's just a completely different feel to it. The story seems more towards a controversial plot, than a love story. I think the main hook of the movie is about conforming to society. Sounds like a book that you might have to read in high school, like a Brave New World.

Not to say it won't be a good movie. It sounds like an interesting story. I just don't think it will play off as the reunion of the Titanic lovers.
