Warner Brothers Home Video has announced Clint Eastwood‘s latest film, J. Edgar, for Blu-Ray this February. Leonardo DiCaprio stars in the film as the title character with Naomi Watts, Judi Dench and Armie Hammer playing significant supporting roles.
The film opened low for an Eastwood movie and didn’t gather as much praise as it had hoped, some even criticized DiCaprio’s performance saying it was overdone and ridiculous at some points.
Our own Amy Curtis had this to say about the film in her review.
The consistently negative study of Hoover, along with pell-mell story telling and a melodramatic and silly gay romance, made J. Edgar a disappointing film. I’m not an expert on Hoover, but by the end of the movie he came across as simply ridiculous, which seems an anticlimactic and unfortunate treatment of the original “G-man”.
The film will come to Blu-Ray in a Blu-Ray/DVD/UltraViolet Digital Copy combo pack with a 1080p video transfer and a 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio track. No special features have been announced yet.
J. Edgar will be released on February 21st, 2012.
