Clint Eastwood’s 'J. Edgar' Trailer Premieres (Video)
The Warner Bros. biopic stars Leonardo DiCaprio, and is already generating Oscar buzz.
“Even great men can be corrupted,” says Leonardo DiCaprio’s J. Edgar Hoover in the trailer for Clint Eastwood’s highly anticipated biopic.
And there are plenty of great men in the Warner Bros. film: Oscar winner Clint Eastwood directs, Oscar-nominated actor Leonardo DiCaprio stars, and the screenplay was written by Dustin Lance Black, who won the Best Original Screenplay Oscar for 2008's Milk. With such a stacked deck, the Warner Bros. film has already been generating plenty of Oscar buzz, due to its very stacked deck.
