The posters for the eagerly-awaited, Leonardo DiCaprio-starring and Clint Eastwood-directed biopic of FBI boss J. Edgar Hoover have been unveiled.

J. Edgar "explores the personal and public life and relationships of a man who could distort the truth as easily as he upheld it during a life devoted to his own idea of justice, often swayed by the darker side of power".

The film also stars Naomi Watts as Hoover's secretary Helen Gandy, Armie Hammer as Hoover's protégé Clyde Tolson, Josh Lucas as Charles Lindbergh and Judi Dench as Hoover's mother, Anne Marie Hoover.

J. Edgar is released in Irish cinemas on Friday January 20 2012.
