Entertainment Weekly is hosting their big fall preview, unveiling lots of first looks at the rather impressive line-up this fall/winter movie season. Though we just featured the first J. Edgar photo last night, EW has published three more as part of an entire article about the film. So not only do we have three more photos of Leonardo DiCaprio in Clint Eastwood's J. Edgar, but our friends at The Film Stage scanned shots from the EW pages of David Fincher's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, starring Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig, as well as Simon Curtis' My Week with Marilyn, starring Michelle Williams. See them below!
We've already seen first looks for all three of these movies before, but it's always great to see more. First up is My Week with Marilyn, which we teased with this promo photo last year. Thanks to TFS for the scan.
Next is Fincher's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. The first image is from EW's fall preview gallery. "People have a hard time with strong females and with nudity," Mara tells EW in their interview with her.
Finally, a few more photos from Clint Eastwood's biopic J. Edgar, starring DiCaprio as FBI head J. Edgar Hoover. You can catch a glimpse of Armie Hammer as Clyde Tolson to the right in the first photo below.
Was Hoover was gay? The movie leaves it up to interpretation, says Eastwood. "Some people might interpret it that way. [Others say they] were just inseparable pals… It was nicely written. It didn't go to the obvious."
Visit EW.com for more on the 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 releasing J. Edgar limited on November 9th.
Out of all these films I am most interested in The Girl With the Dragoon Tattoo.

I like DiCaprio but he doesn't scream J Edgar Hoover to me. They should have picked an actor that fit the role better.

Leo back with his annual year end effort to nab an Oscar 😛 I like the guy and he's an actor worthy of the award but I do wish he would play something other than the 'brooding' and 'depressed' for a change.

DiCaprio always looks too young for these rolls, even with makeup, same with matt damon. They potray a character thats in their 50's an 60's an these guys are only in their 30's, ruins the immersion 4 me.
