'Hitchcock' Poster Stays Simple with Anthony Hopkins & Helen Mirren
The first poster for the behind-the-scenes drama Hitchcock, which chronicles the titular director and the trials and tribulations of making his horror classic Psycho, had a retro horror style. Anthony Hopkins stood in signature profile stance with snapshots of the rest of the cast including Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Biel, Helen Mirren and more. Now a new poster keeps the same style but with less graceful composition as Hitch merely stands with a knife, right next to Mirren as his wife Alma. It's nothing special, but the trailer for the movie speaks for itself anyway, so watch that if you haven't already. View full below!
Sacha Gervasi (Anvil! The Story of Anvil) is directing Hitchcock, written by John McLaughlin (Black Swan) and based on the book Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho by Stephen Rebello. Anthony Hopkins plays director Alfred Hitchcock and is supported by a great cast including Helen Mirren, Scarlett Johansson, Danny Huston, Toni Collette, Jessica Biel, Michael Stuhlbarg, James D'Arcy and more. The film, a love story, takes place during the making of Hitchcock's seminal film Psycho. Fox Searchlight opens Hitchcock in limited theaters on November 23rd, Friday after Thanksgiving, the same week as Life of Pi, Red Dawn and The Silver Linings Playbook.
