And the Oscar goes to…J Edgar

20 Sep

The full trailer to J Edgar was released yesterday, and…wow.  Directed by Clint Eastwood and starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Naomi Watts, Judi Dench, and Armie Hammer (the Winklevoss twins from The Social Network), J Edgar obviously tells the life story of the man behind the FBI, J Edgar Hoover.  This movie looks to be Warner Bros’ clear attempt at a Best Picture contender, and from the looks of the movie it has a shot.   The trailer aside, DiCaprio truly makes only great movies at this point, and is currently on par with Tom Hanks 90’s run of Philadelphia/ForrestGump/Apollo 13/Saving Private Ryan/Green Mile.  Eastwood is pretty much the same, with seemingly a best picture candidate every year.  Check out the trailer.

    Leo looks like he’s going for the Oscar here and hopefully he gets it, but Eastwood is usually hit-or-miss nowadays which is why I’m not too siked for it just yet.
