“I’m just a Man hiding in a corner… with a Camera”.
Oscar, we have a Dark Horse. Entertainment Weekly gets the first glimpse at Hitchcock and today from Fox Searchlight, we get a look at the first official Poster and Trailer for the Biopic about one of the most iconic Filmmakers of all time. The Film is set around the making of Psycho and focuses on the Love Story between Alfred Hitchcock (Anthony Hopkins) and his Wife, Alma Reville (Helen Mirren).
Director Sacha Gervasi tells EW a little about Hitchcock in this Film stating, “Hitch lived in this world of fantasy; to him it was more real than real life. And I think Alma was able to kind of, in this film at least, smash it down a little bit”. This will be Gervasi‘s first time helming a Feature Film, after dabbling in Screenwriting with 2004’s The Terminal and 2010’s Henry’s Crime. Read more here.
Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Biel, Ralph Macchio, James D’Arcy and Toni Collette round-out a superb Cast.
