In theaters this November 23rd, 2012 is Hitchcock, a film highly anticipated by movie buffs as it stars Anthony Hopkins as Alfred Hitchcock – probably the most famous film director of all time – in a behind the scenes looking at the making of Psycho. Academy Award-winner Helen Mirren co-stars as Hitchcock’s loyal wife Alma Reville, and you can also look for Scarlett Johansson as actress Janet Leigh and Jessica Biel as Vera Miles.
Apple premiered the trailer today in glorious Quicktime. The rest of the high-profile cast includes Danny Huston, Toni Colette, and James D’Arcy. We shall have to wait and see if Hitchcock develops any Oscar buzz of its own. Hollywood tends to love movies about Hollywood, although the trailer doesn’t exactly portray the movie studios of the late 1950′s in a favorable light – apparently Mr. Hitchcock was forced to mortgage his own house in order to finance Psycho.
