Director Sacha Gervasi’s Hitchcock has been labelled as a very strong Oscar contender for next year, and Fox are now piling on the pressure to make sure movie fans have no excuse not to see this stunning looking film. Just last week saw the release of a wonderful featurette looking at Hitchcock and his wife Alma, and along with that came a new trailer which was somehow better than the first trailer.
Today see’s the release of a new clip from the film, and granted we have seen the punchline in the trailer, but it is just nice to see actual footage from the film in its entirety. A new collection of images have also been released, along with a gorgeous new poster. Check out all the god stuff below.
Anthony Hopkins will be playing Alfred Hitchcock, Helen Mirren his wife Alma, Scarlett Johansson as Janet Leigh, Jessica Biel as Vera Miles, James D’Arcy as Anthony Perkins/Norman Bates, Michael Stuhlbarg as Lew Wasserman, Toni Collette as Hitchcock’s secretary Peggy, Michael Wincott as Ed Gein, Danny Huston as Whitfield Cook, Kurtwood Smith as Geoffrey Shurlock and Richard Portnow as Barney Balaban.
The film has been penned by John McLaughlin,with revisions by Ryan Murphy (American Horror Story), Gervasi himself and author Stephen Rebello. Ivan Reitman, Joe Medjuck and Tom Pollack will produce through their Montecito Picture Company along with Tom Thayer.
The project is based on the non-fiction book by Stephen Rebello that tracks how Hitchcock, at the height of his game as a director, decided to make a “lowly” horror movie.
Hitchcock arrives in UK cinemas 8th February 2013. The US will see a limited theatrical release on November 23rd.
“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.
