On this edition of Movie Pics, we get our first look at the new Leonardo DiCaprio flick, The Blood Diamond, George Clooney returns to black and white in The Good German and Christina Ricci moans for a big, black snake:

  • Though it's not much, here is the first image from Edward Zwick's African thriller, TheBlood Diamond. In the pic, Leonardo DiCaprio and Djimon Hounsou star as two African-born men, with very different lives, who join together on a quest to recover a rare pink diamond. Release date: December 15
  • Man, is there a film in which Christina Ricci doesn't look good? Sure, she's got a big forehead, but I feel it just adds to her personality. Here are some more pics from Black Snake Moan; director Craig Brewer's highly anticipated follow-up to Hustle and Flow. Film stars Samuel L. Jackson (what is it with him and these damn snakes?) as a blues musician who rescues a wild child (Ricci) upon finding her beaten and left for dead. Oh, and be sure to check out these nifty little posters over on AICN. Release date: February 16, 2007 [via JoBlo]
  • Based on the novel by Joseph Kanon, The Good German tells of an American journalist is lured into a murder mystery while trying to find his former mistress in post-WWII Berlin. Steven Soderbergh jumps into the directors chair with a cast that includes George Clooney, Tobey Maguire, Cate Blanchett and Beau Bridges. Currently, there's only one pic available. Release date: December 8.
