Probably one of my favorite scenes from The Departed takes place in a shady movie theater (in which porn nabs top billing) and features a meeting between Frank Costello (an Irish mob boss played by Jack Nicholson) and Colin Sullivan (Matt Damon, as Costello's apprentice working undercover deep within the Boston State Police). Without giving anything away, let's just say Jack flashes his, um, vintage smile.

Not long ago, Cinematical was invited to attend a press conference for The Departed located at the swanky Loews Regency Hotel on Park Avenue here in New York City. On hand to answer questions were Martin Scorsese, Matt Damon, Leonardo DiCaprio, Vera Farmiga, screenwriter William Monahan and producer Graham King. What follows are some of the more interesting tidbits to come out of the conference, which lasted roughly 45 minutes. (Oh, and before you ask ladies -- yes, Damon and DiCaprio look just as good in person as they do on the big screen.) The Departed lands in theaters this Friday, October 6.
