As long as the quality of Anthony Hopkins' acting lives up to the that of his makeup in Hitchcock, there is a strong possibility that he may be earning his second Academy Award this winter.
A poster for the highly anticipated flick has been released (above) and is relying on Hopkins incredible resemblance to the real-life director to lure the audiences into the theater when the film is released on November 23.
The biopic focuses on the making of Psycho, so we're a little surprised the marketing doesn't play off the classic horror film — but there's more promotion to come.
Helen Mirren, Scarlett Johansson and Jessica Biel also star, so we're definitely looking forward to a trailer. See all those lovely ladies in action!

Sienna Miller AND Alfred Hitchcock?
Count us in!
HBO has released two teasers for The Girl, a movie which takes us behind-the-scenes of when Hitchcock made The Birds with Tippi Hedren, played by Miller, and his infatuation with the actress — followed by sexual harassment and finally blacklisting.
Apparently, Toby Jones, the actor who portrays Hitchcock is spectacular as the British film auteur.
We seriously cannot wait to see this scandalicious movie!
Ch-ch-check out the second terrific teaser… AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Talk about a FANTASTIC casting choice!
Anthony Hopkins is playing iconic filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock in the movie Hitchcock and the producers could not have picked a better actor for the role.
In the first glimpse of the movie, which started filming last Friday, we get to see the Silence of the Lambs star in full costume and his resemblance to the director is uncanny. Based on his previous work, we're sure his performance will be too!
