At first glance, it's just another Kate Winslet looks for love-type flick. Look a little closer and you'll realize that Revolutionary Road marks the first on-screen reunion for Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio since Titanic. Ooohh, the goosebumps! Some of the first pics of Winslet from the set of Revolutionary Road have arrived online, and from the looks of it she's gone all 1950s on us -- I mean, what's up with those weird button-like things on her dress? From what I can tell, there are a host of other pics online at the Kate Winslet fan website, but you have to register and stuff in order to see those galleries. I didn't have the time, but feel free to dive in you Winslet fanatics.

Based on the 1961 novel by Richard Yates (and adapted for the screen by Justin Haythe), Revolutionary Road is set in the 1950s and finds Winslet and DiCaprio married and stuck in a boring, same-old-routine kind of marriage. In an attempt to spice things up, the couple (along with their two kids) move to France, but not even a geographical shift can save these two from jumping ship. Directed by Sam Mendes, pic seems to place the helmer back in American Beauty mode as both films appear to share similar suburban themes, except for the fact that one takes place a few decades before the other. Another interesting little sidenote is that this will mark the first time that Mendes and Winslet (who are married in real life) work together on the same film. (I'm not aware of any Little Children-esque sex scenes, but I imagine it would have to be tough for a guy to watch his wife with another man, let alone be the one giving directions.) Due out in 2008, there's currently no release date. But, as soon as we have pics of both Titanic stars together, you'll be the first we share them with.
