On Saturday when I went to the theater to see “Looper”, before the movie started the theater played one of those turn off your cellphone PSAs; but this one was different, this one had Alfred Hitchcock in it. Well, it had Anthony Hopkins portraying Alfred Hitchcock, anyway. In case you are unaware, Mr. Hopkins will be playing Mr. Hitchcock in the new movie entitled “Hitchcock” which is based on the book “Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho” by Steven Rebello, and today the trailer for the film has been released onto the web.
Thus I bring you this “micro” post. Check out the trailer below and then sound off in the comment section with your thoughts.
Alfred Hitchcock is arguably the most recognizable director of all time; based on the trailer do you think Hopkins pulls it off? And what about Scarlett Johansson as Janet Leigh? There’s a lot to process here, as this trailer is surprisingly long considering that the film is likely to come out in only a few months.
Consider me excited.
