Anthony Hopkins will be playing the legendary director Alfred Hitchcock in the upcoming film Hitchcock. The first trailer has been released and it’s surprisingly full of energy and actually kind of funny. It looks to be approaching the material with an initial lighter tone that perhaps transcends into darker territories as the film moves along.
I’m really hoping this film does the director justice, because he was such an interesting man that deserves a damn fine movie to tell his life story, more specifically the making of one of his most popular films, Psycho.
Helen Mirren and Scarlett Johansson are also in the film, so make sure to keep an eye out for them as you watch the trailer!
Hitchcock opens on November 23rd, 2012.
