Trailer: Hitchcock


Here we have the very first trailer for the Alfred Hitchcock biopic Hitchcock starring Anthony Hopkins as the big fella himself, with Helen Mirren as Hitchcock’s wife and Scarlett Johannson as Janet Leigh. The film mostly follows Hitchcock as he struggles to adapt the novel Psycho to the big screen, a film that would eventually be known as one of the greatest thrillers of all time, good enough to be remade years later starring the Vince Vaughn!

While I’m not terribly sold on the fat suit Hopkins is wearing, the bits we can see of his performance seem quite encouraging, though the plot does seem to be the usual biopic stuff of, “Let’s all fawn over the famous centerpiece of the film for two hours.” At least there’s not some heroin problem for Hitchy to overcome!
