Clearly — and, perhaps, predictably — James Cameron is going for nostalgia when it comes to the first poster for Titanic in 3-D. The one-sheet highlights an iconic image of the late 1990s: A dashing — yet boyish — Leonardo DiCaprio as Jack clutching Kate Winslet’s girlfriend-from-the-other-side-of-the-tracks Rose. Personally, I was hoping for something a bit more dynamic for a poster for a 3-D movie. Where’s propeller man when you need him?! See the poster below and remember the simpler days of 1997.

Clint Eastwood’s upcoming biopic J. Edgar will show Leonardo DiCaprio in a whole new light. Playing the first director of the FBI, the handsome DiCaprio looks as though he’s stepped right into character (all that Oscar talk isn’t for nothing) and right out of the dreamboat image he created back in 1997′s Titanic. DiCaprio has pretty much grown up right in front of our eyes, but never quite like this before. Check out some of the stills featuring DiCaprio as a younger Hoover with his mother (played by Judi Dench) and DiCaprio as a not-so-younger Hoover. J.Edgar opens in theaters on Nov. 11.

Leonardo DiCaprio is “the most powerful man in the world.” But will that finally get him Oscar? The new poster for J. Edgar certainly seems to emphasize one thing about Clint Eastwood’s November biopic of the former FBI director: The acting. And DiCaprio looking this intense… well, it’s a look that suits him best, right?
Click the jump to see the poster for the buzzy film (handsome cast! Homosexual undertones! Leo’s accent!), and immediately enter DiCaprio into your Oscar pools. READ FULL STORY »
From the first glimpse at J. Edgar, Clint Eastwood’s star-studded biopic of the controversial FBI chief J. Edgar Hoover, it’s clear that Leonardo DiCaprio thinks his performance in The Aviator was child’s play. That 2004 movie focused on a few chapters of the life of dynamic entrepreneur Howard Hughes, before eccentricities turned him into a recluse. J. Edgar is much more ambitious, with clips in the trailer capturing Hoover’s childhood, his role in the establishment of the FBI in the 1930s, and his consolidation of power that lasted into the Nixon administration. With the help of make-up, DiCaprio ages from his 30s in to his 70s. It’s certainly an epic undertaking for any actor. Take a look. READ FULL STORY »
Clint Eastwood’s J. Edgar, starring Leonardo DiCaprio as the controversial FBI director J. Edgar Hoover, will have its world premiere at the opening night of the 25th annual AFI Fest on Nov. 3. The heavily anticipated film, which co-stars Naomi Watts, Armie Hammer, and Judi Dench, skipped this month’s festivals in Venice, Toronto, and New York. The movie opens in select theaters on Nov. 9 before going wide two days later.
No kid says he wants to be J. Edgar Hoover when he grows up.
He was America’s Top Cop for five decades, but somewhere along the line, the FBI founder went from protector to tyrant in the minds of many Americans.
Hoover unified the federal police force, helped popularize fingerprints and other forensic evidence… then went sadly astray, abusing his power, manipulating elected officials and, most damningly, wiretapping and intimidating civil rights leaders. That tragic arc is at the heart of director Clint Eastwood’s drama, starring Leonardo DiCaprio as the notorious G-man.
“I started to become curious about the ‘why,’” says screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, Oscar-winner for 2008’s Milk. “He did wonderful things for this country, but why did he ended up doing so many things that were heinous and harmful? I think it was all in the name of trying to fill that void, where love goes, with public admiration. This is a guy who from his earliest years was told he could never express the love he felt.”
Was Hoover was gay or straight? The movie leaves it open to interpretation, according to Eastwood, but one thing is undeniable — he was an achingly solitary man. And there was far more to him than that.

The Toronto Film Festival is the unofficial launch of Academy Awards season, but one of this year’s most Oscar-friendly films is taking a pass. Clint Eastwood’s J.

J. Edgar is scheduled for a limited release on Nov. 9 before going wide two days later.
