Along with "Young Adult" and "Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close," Clint Eastwood's "J. Edgar" is one of the few big remaining Oscar question marks for this year's awards season. And while the film penned by “Milk” screenwriter Dustin Lance Black boasts a solid ensemble supporting cast that includes Armie Hammer, Naomi Watts, Ed Westwick, Damon Herriman, Judi Dench, Ken Howard, Jeffrey Donovan and Stephen Root, these first posters make it very clear who the spotlight will be on.

Along with "Young Adult" and "Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close," Clint Eastwood's "J. Edgar" is one of the few big remaining Oscar question marks for this year's awards season. And while the film penned by “Milk” screenwriter Dustin Lance Black boasts a solid ensemble supporting cast that includes Armie Hammer, Naomi Watts, Ed Westwick, Damon Herriman, Judi Dench, Ken Howard, Jeffrey Donovan and Stephen Root, these first posters make it very clear who the spotlight will be on.

Leonardo DiCaprio will be looking for his fourth Oscar nomination, taking on the titular role in the film that is a decades-spanning look at the life of the controversial head of the FBI. The handsomely put together trailer certainly teases a film that is more epic in scope that we might have originally envisioned, and the make up department worked pretty hard to age up DiCaprio who will be playing Hoover right through his elderly years, gray hair, sagging skin and all (sorry ladies).

"J. Edgar" will premiere at AFI Fest, where it has the opening night gala slot on November 3rd. It will then open in theaters less than week later on November 9th. Check out the new posters below. [via Rope Of Silicon]
