Anthony Hopkins stars as Alfred Hitchcock in the newly released trailer for Hitchcock, a film about the legendary director’s battle to get his famous 1960 film Psycho to the silver screen.
Hopkins stars opposite Helen Mirren as Hitchcock’s wife Alma Reville, and Scarlett Johansson as Janet Leigh who reenacts the famous shower scene. In addition to exploring Hitchcock’s struggles within the industry to make Psycho, this film also details his personal relationship with his wife during the whole ordeal.
The biopic was directed by Sacha Gervasi and based on a nonfiction book by Stephen Rebel. Although the film was originally set for a release date next year, it was recently bumped up to a November 23rd date, most likely to be eligible for the Academy Awards.
