Yesterday it Was the Photos…

Today it is the official trailer dropping.



ILC’s Take:

This looks absolutely beautiful. In watching this trailer, I am very happy about  the prominence of Alma Reville (his wife) has in the story.

For many who are not heavily into the Hitchcock biography, this film looks like it will shine a well overdue light on the woman, a supportive and heavily influential creative force in her own right, behind the man.

Of course that is not to say that we may also be peeling away few layers from “The Master of Suspense” himself.

I will definitely be seeing this one!

Sir Anthony Hopkins as Sir Alfred Hitchcock

As per my tumblr page, here is a side-by-side photo of Anthony Hopkins as Hitch and the legendary director himself:














It was reported last week that principal photography started. Here is a brief synopsis of the film’s premise:

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 film will also star Scarlett Johansson (LOST IN TRANSLATION) as Janet Leigh, James D’Arcy (MASTER AND COMMANDER: THE FAR SIDE OF THE WORLD) as Anthony Perkins, Jessica Biel (THE ILLUSIONIST ) as Vera Miles, Michael Stuhlbarg (A SERIOUS MAN) as Lew Wasserman, Toni Collette (LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE) as Hitchcock’s secretary Peggy, Michael Wincott (THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO) as Ed Gein, Kurtwood Smith (TO DIE FOR) as Geoffrey Shurlock, Richard Portnow (GOOD MORNING VIETNAM) as Barney Balaban and Danny Huston (THE CONSTANT GARDENER) as Whitfield Cook.

No official release date is set; so stay tuned.
