Due in theaters on November 9 (Limited) / November 11 (Wide), here’s the 1st trailer (via Apple) for Warner Bros. Pictures’ J. EDGAR starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Naomi Watts, Armie Hammer, Josh Lucas, Ken Howard and Judi Dench.
Okay, so what’s everyone think? Will the film will be as great as the trailer or just another by-the-numbers biopic? I guess it all depends on what aspects of Hoover’s career are focused on. They’re obviously hitting on the race riots, the gangsters, having Kennedy under his thumb, but how deep will it delve into him being a Mama’s boy versus being head of the G-Men.
I already love cinematographer Tom Stern’s hazy interior shots. He’s previously worked with Eastwood on INVICTUS, GRAN TORINO, HEREAFTER, MILLION DOLLAR BABY, CHANGELING, FLAGS OF OUR FATHERS, LETTERS FROM IWO JIMA, MYSTIC RIVER, BLOOD WORK.
From those few scenes with Judi Dench, safe bet we’ll be hearing her name in the Best Supporting Actress category come Oscar nomination morning. One thing is for sure, count on seeing Clint – alot – this awards season.
