Although Clint Eastwood has been in a major directing slump the last few years, I’m banking on his collaboration with Leonardo DiCaprio to pull him out of it. The actor is stepping into the shoes of J. Edgar Hoover, and with these two new posters below, he is clearly the selling point here.

J. Edgar will open in limited release on November 9th, followed by a wide opening on November 11th.
