Watch! Hitchcock Trailer!

I must have missed it, but the screen adaptation of Alfred Hitchcock & The Making of Psycho has now been officially titled the much blander (but more accessible) Hitchcock. It doesn’t really matter, though, as the new trailer has arrived and it’s really quite wonderful. I’m a massive Hitchcock fan, so recruiting Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren to headline a film about the making of one of his most high-profile works is certainly fascinating. Looking forward to this one. It’ll start a limited release in the States in late November, but we’ll be waiting until February to see it over here.

Ah well. At least they can’t spoil they ending.

    Finally, a movie to look forward to !

    • I am quite looking forward to this. Had the pelasure of checking out Psycho on blu ray and it still looks incredible.

  2. I completely missed the existence of this entire film. Yay, a treat for 2013! I was talking about Hopkins earlier today and the time he said “I just think I’m lucky to still be working at 73. You reach a point in life where you just think, “Show up, do your job, make sure the cheque’s on the way,” and that’s it. I’m not hungry to do anything more, really”. Hopefully this proves that he is in fact hungry and will have to eat his own words.

    Bdmtsh.

    I like to think that these kind of films are more than just a job to an actor. I suppose they are entitled to distance themselves from their work but I love that romantic Day Lewis image of immersion in the role! It makes it seem magical and out of reach. I guess it’s just effortless to him and it’s the end result that matters rather than the process :\

    Anyway, definitely will be jotting this film into the calendar!

    • Hopkins has seemed by rote lately, hasn’t he? Although he’s still amrvellous. I loved Branagh’s Thor far more than most, and at least a large portion of that was hearing Anthony Hopkins ham it up for some Stan Lee-style dialogue. If you can make whispering to a hammer seem bad ass, even when you probably aren’t really trying, you have some wonderful innate talent.

      I’m looking forward to this. I like bio-pics better when they’re a bit tighter and focused on a particular event. Trying to cram a life into two hours just seems impossible.

      • Hmm…http://www.showbiz.ie/news/october00/16-daylewis02.shtml

        Remember in that film, Proof, where Anthony Hopkins played a mathematician. I’ll borrow another person’s description and say that, in most of her films, Gwyneth Paltrow is a plank of wood with hair. To be able to work with that and conjure emotion in a scene, he definitely has something special about him. I sometimes think about writing a list of well-known younger actors that I think will be around in forty years time and then taking it out in my retirement to see if I was right 🙂 The problem is trying to think of even one person to put on that list. Daniel Day Lewis, possibly. Maybe Philip Seymour Hoffman.

        I heard on the radio about Cillian Murphy going all “TV” on us.

  3. Thanks!!
