Ah! We knew it would come.
The team behind Hitchcock has released more marketing material which showcases all of the film's major characters, not just the titular director played by Anthony Hopkins.
The newest poster (above) features Scarlett Johansson as Janet Leigh, Jessica Biel as Vera Miles, Helen Mirren as Alma Reville, James D'Arcy as Psycho star Anthony Perkins, Danny Huston as Whitfield Cook and Toni Collette playing the iconic director's personal assistant.
While we thought it was going to be a simple biopic about all of the dramz that went down behind the scenes during the making of Psycho, it turns out it's actually a love story. Director Sacha Gervasi revealed the core of the story is Hitchcock's relationship with his wife and explained:
“I think Alma accepts Hitch for exactly who he is and knows his idiosyncrasies and his crazy predilections. She allows him to have his obsessions and I think our movie is about a point where they sort of escalate. Their marriage is absolutely touched off by his increasing obsessions with these women, but they were ultimately fantasy relationships. Hitch lived in this world of fantasy; to him it was more real than real life. And I think Alma was able to kind of, in this film at least, smash it down a little bit.”
Well, we personally can't wait to see how his real-life fantasy world unfolds on screen when the movie arrives in theaters on November 23.
Based on what we've already heard, it sounds like every actor involved delivers some of their best work!
