Leonardo DiCaprio Gets Patriotic In Two New J. Edgar Posters
It's common that I find myself complaining about how crappy and ordinary modern movie posters are. For every one-sheet like the recently released one for Steve McQueen's Shame we see a thousand familiar layouts and poorly-edited disasters. The truth is that it's extremely rare for a poster to convince anyone to see or not to see a new movie, so why not let imaginations run wild? Today Warner Bros. has released two new ads for Clint Eastwood's J. Edgar and it's almost as though somebody made a compromise.
Check them out below and click on each one to see it in high-res.
The first poster is fine if not overly simple, but I really like the second poster. Not only do I love the added color scheme, but the texture on Leonardo DiCaprio's face - which, close up, looks like its been taken off a dollar bill - is amazing. This proves that it doesn't take much to turn an ordinary poster into an awesome one.
J. Edgar stars DiCaprio as the legendary J. Edgar Hoover, the founder of the United States' Federal Bureau of Investigation. Written by Oscar winner Dustin Lance Black, the film tracks Hoover's career from his start as a young man going up against criminals to his time as an old man. The movie co-stars Armie Hammer, Naomi Watts, Jeffrey Donovan, Judi Dench, Ed Westwick, Josh Licas and Stephen Root. Set to premiere at AFI Fest next month, it will be released in theaters on November 9th. For more about J. Edgar, be sure to head over to our Blend Film Database.
