We haven't seen Leonardo DiCaprio on the big screen since the success of Inception back in the summer of 2010 but this week he is back

And he is back with a another biopic project as he takes on the role of J.Edgar Hoover in the Clint Eastwood directed movie.

An Eastwood directed movie is always a super exciting event and we have enjoyed the likes of Hereafter, Invictus and Gran Torino in recent years.

The role of J.Edgar has already brought DiCaprio a handful of award nominations for his performance and it looks set to be well worth a watch.

And DiCaprio has a great supporting cast around him that includes Judi Dench, Naomi Watts, Ed Westwick and Armie Hammer.

During his lifetime, J. Edgar Hoover would rise to be the most powerful man in America.

As head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation for nearly 50 years, he would stop at nothing to protect his country.

Through eight presidents and three wars, Hoover waged battle against threats both real and perceived, often bending the rules to keep his countrymen safe.

His methods were at once ruthless and heroic, with the admiration of the world his most coveted, if ever elusive, prize.

J.Edgar is released 20th January
