The first official trailer for Hitchcock, which chronicles prolific director Alfred Hitchcock whilst making his classic horror film Psycho, just debuted recently, and Anthony Hopkins looks to turn in another Oscar worthy performance. Now we get to see even more of Hitchcock in the form of a PSA meant for movie theaters that tells patrons not to use their cell phone during the film. While this video looks like a bootleg from a movie theater, this was sent out through official channels, so this isn't pirated. We're not sure if they're trying to make this video seem viral, but we at least get more of Hopkins as Hitchcock. Watch below!
Here's Anthony Hopkins in the PSA featuring footage from Hitchcock:
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, the Friday after Thanksgiving.
