Hitchcock Trailer: Anthony Hopkins Takes On the Legendary Director

The trailer for Hitchcock looks like it's going to prove that some of the most fascinating movies are the ones about the movie business. Anthony Hopkins plays legendary director Alfred Hitchcock in this drama, which focuses on the time in his life when he was making the film Psycho, as well as his relationship with his wife, Alma Reville (Helen Mirren). As a Hitchcock fan, it's exciting to watch the iconic horror film going through production (which includes a wigged-up Scarlett Johansson as starlet Janet Leigh), though I had no idea that the director had encountered such opposition when he was making Psycho. It's fun watching the drama unfold — and witnessing the sometimes funny dynamic between Hitchcock and his wife.

Hopkins does an impressive rendering of Hitchcock in this preview, but really, everything presented here looks fantastic. There's a great cast (Toni Collette and Jessica Biel also star), a bit of Psycho's signature creepiness (poor Johansson looks like she's genuinely being tortured in the infamous shower scene), and a taste of the tense score by Danny Elfman. Hitchcock comes out Nov. 23, and you can watch the trailer after the jump.
