Hitchcock Director Sacha Gervasi Explains What Anvil And Mrs. Hitchcock Have In Common
Gervasi's high energy and warm humor can be felt throughout Hitchcock, and as he spoke a mile a minute about the legendary filmmaker, film, and Alma Reville the influential figure it pulls from the shadows, his enthusiasm is positively infectious. When I asked him casually how his day of press was going, Gervasi smiled broadly and exclaimed, " I'm having a fucking good time!" From that moment, I knew he and I would get along famously.

James D'Arcy On Becoming The Boy Next Door Who Went Psycho In Hitchcock
When Anthony Perkins was cast in Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho, he seemed like and unlikely candidate to play the murderous Norman Bates. At the time, the sweet-faced Perkins with boy-next-store good looks was being groomed by the studio system to be a dreamboat matinee idol in the vein of James Dean. But by signing on to Psycho, Perkins changed the course of his career and forever bound his image to that of the tempestuous and tormented Norman Bates.

Hitchcock Clip Gets Titillating With A Showering Scarlett Johansson
Now that Fox Searchlight has begun teasing Johansson’s take on Leigh, I want to see more of Jessica Biel’s Vera Miles and James D’Arcy’s Anthony Perkins. How much of Hitchcock will be behind-the-scenes Psycho footage, and how much will be at-home-with-the-conflicted-genius?

International Hitchcock Trailer Reveals The Fight For Psycho
In the new biopic Hitchcock, director Sacha Gervasi unveils the struggles Hitch and his wife and most trusted collaborator Alma Reville faced in bringing Psycho to life. Of course today, this is arguably Hitchcock's best-known effort, but in 1959 it seemed too ghastly and too strange to get support from the studio system for which Hitchcock had made millions.

Hitchcock Featurette Takes You Inside A Master's Marriage
Alfred Hitchcock is famous as one of the few directors from the studio era of Hollywood to truly put his own stamp on this movies, to the point that audiences would flock to films because his name was on it, not because of his many attractive stars. But Hitchcock's works can also be credited to his partnership and longtime marriage with Alma Reville

Watch Anthony Hopkins Stab Scarlett Johansson In This New Clip From Hitchcock
Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho is unquestionably one of the greatest horror films to ever be made, and no conversation about Psycho is complete without mention of the shower scene, right? The death of Janet Leigh in the first act of the movie is one of the most iconic in history, so naturally it's going to play a part in director Sacha Gervasi's new film Hitchcock, which chronicles the making of the classic. And that very scene is at the center of a new promo that's been released by Fox Searchlight.

Helen Mirren Gets Increased Exposure In Sweet New Hitchcock Poster
Less than a month ago, the publicity department behind Sacha Gervasi’s Hitchcock released a pretty sweet theatrical poster that splintered members of the cast in an apparent homage to one of the original Psycho posters. While visually appealing and oddly awesome, it had one clear downside: it mistakenly downplayed the importance of Helen Mirren to the film by putting her in the bottom right hand corner.

New Hitchcock Poster Splinters The Cast
Alfred Hitchcock movies almost always had memorable poster designs, fro the brilliance of Saul Bass' Vertigo design to the illustration of Tippi Hedren under attack for The Birds, his film has a special place in the history of film art. Fair or not, this puts a degree of pressure on the upcoming Sacha Gervasi movie Hitchcock, a biopic about the director during the time he was making Psycho.

If you're not familiar with the Psycho story-- and if not, please see that movie before this one comes out!-- Janet Leigh (Johansson) plays the ostensible heroine, who skips down with some stolen cash and decides to hang out in the Bates Motel.

Anthony Hopkins Shows Cutting-Edge Fashion Sense On Hitchcock Poster
Directed by Sacha Gervasi, Hitchcock will detail the struggles—both personal and professional—that the filmmaker faced while creating Psycho. Tackling sexual taboos and offering unforgettable violence, the film struggled to secure financing and caused a stir before it ever hit theaters, forcing Hitch to fight censorship at every turn. But he fought to get the cut he believed in, making Hitchcock a tale of one man's persistence of vision.

First Look At Anthony Hopkins As A Dead Ringer For Alfred Hitchcock
It seems that Hitchcock will be telling a fairly sprawling story about all the people working behind the scenes of the film, so despite the title it's not just going to be Hopkins's show. So if that's the case, are they going to release images of everyone in character?
