“I’m just a man hiding in the corner with a camera–watching.”
Sacha Gervasi‘s HITCHCOCK (2012) – The new trailer for Sir Anthony Hopkins latest film debut today “Hitchcock.” The film follows Hopkins as Sir Alfred Hitchcock, the “Master of Suspense,” as he battled to get the film Psycho–a film he financed himself— to the big screen. Notably, Hopkin’s physical transformation is impressive–is posture and demeanor extremely favors Sir Alfred in nearly every manner, and it seems that many of Hollywood’s leading actors are taking to the artistry that is “make up” special effects. Recently, Joseph Gordon-Levitt transformed into a younger Bruce Wills in the recently released film LOOPER; and Daniel Day-Lewis, who bears an uncanny resemblance as President Abraham Lincoln in the film Lincoln.
Dame Helen Mirren will star as Hitchock’s wife and assistant director Alma Reville, and Scarlett Johansson looks absolutely stunning as the “victim” in the film, actress Janet Leigh. In addition to James D’Arcy as the late Anthony Perkins.

Synopsis: Hitchcock is a love story about one of the most influential filmmakers of the last century, Sir Alfred Hitchcock, and his wife and partner Alma Reville. The film takes place during the making of Hitchcock’s seminal movie Psycho.
Psycho (1960) went on to be a phenomenal success for the director becoming his highest grossing film. To this day it remains one of the most suspenseful films of all time–so much so, it has spurned a series of sequels, with Anthony Perkins reprising his role as Norman Bates (Psycho II (1983), Psycho III (1986), the made for cable Psycho IV: The Beginning (1990)).
