Fox Searchlight Pictures has released a great new international trailer for Hitchcock, and it features a good amount of new footage from the film. Anthony Hopkins takes on the lead role of the famed director, Helen Mirren plays his wife Alma, Scarlett Johansson plays Janet Leigh, Ralph Macchio is Joe Stefano, Jessica Biel is Vera Miles and James D'Arcy will play Anthony Perkins. It looks like everyone will be giving a solid performance.
The movie was directed by Sacha Gervasi (Anvil! The Story of Anvil), and is based on the book Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho by Stephen Rebello, and it tells the behind the scenes story of the making of Hitchcock’s classic horror film Psycho. It also focuses on the relationship between Hitchcock and his wife. This looks like it's going to be a great film, and I'm looking forward to seeing the story they tell unfold on the big screen.
Here's the short synopsis:
HITCHCOCK is a love story about one of the most influential filmmakers of the last century, Alfred Hitchcock, and his wife and partner Alma Reville. The film takes place during the making of Hitchcock's seminal movie PSYCHO.
The movie will be released in select theaters on November 23rd. Enjoy the latest trailer!
