Last month Warner Bros. debuted the first official trailer for the promising, awards-qualifying drama J. Edgar from director Clint Eastwood and starring Leonardo DiCaprio as FBI director J. Edgar Hoover, and the film looks positively exquisite. Though usually a poster comes just before a trailer gets released, we're just now getting a couple of posters featuring DiCpario looking rather commanding and intimidating as the titular man from our nation's history. Though each poster uses the exact same image, one is much more stylized and artistic than the other. You'll understand after you see both of the posters below.
Here are the two similar, but different, posters for Clint Eastwood's J. Edgar from Warner Bros:
Warner Bros' new film J. Edgar explores the public and private life of one of the most powerful, controversial and enigmatic figures of the 20th century. Directed by Clint Eastwood (Million Dollar Baby, Changeling, Gran Torino, Invictus, Hereafter) from a screenplay by Dustin Lance Black (Milk, "Big Love"), the film stars Leonardo DiCaprio as well as Armie Hammer, Naomi Watts, Josh Lucas, Judi Dench and Ed Westwick. The story traces Hoover's life from his childhood through ascent to power in the 20s, his 50-year reign over the FBI, and death in 1972. Warner Bros is opening J. Edgar in theaters November 9th.
