Is Scarlett's role small? She doesn't get a mention in the trailer.
I smell Oscar nominations for Sir. Anthony Hopkins and Dame Helen Mirren!

The 'In Limited Release' Troll
January not Janaury!!
Limited R. Troll
They thought if they didn't mention Scarlett was in it it'd have a better chance.
When they announced the supporting cast I was skeptical they could pull it off. But, wow! This looks good! ScarJo carries herself well.
I still can't tell exactly what it's going to be about from a dramatic standpoint. I guess the story's tension will come from the fact the Hitchcocks put up their own money to make the film and weren't sure whether or not they'd make money off of it.
Any word on how this film is?
The limited release tells me they're not expecting much.
A limited release is usually so that the film can qualify for Oscars or some shit. It has to be in theaters in 2012, even if it's for a week.
It looks campy, in a good way. Why does Helen's skin look waxy. Is it prosthetics to make her look like Alma?
Does Toby Jones specialize in playing second tier biopic leads? He played second fiddle to Phillip Seymour Hoffman's Truman Capote and now he is doing the same to Anthony Hopkins' Hitchcock.
Toby Jones' performance as Capote was excellent. Unfortunately he seems to turn up in everything now, and I can't take him seriously as Hitchcock.
The drama of this one, much like "My Week with Marilyn", seems to stem from taking a small part of a creative persons life and injecting it with way more drama so it seems like their whole life is hanging in the balance. I hated the lines from the press in the trailer about him retiring at 60- they're clearly there for the audience to be "Hahaha, stupid reporters, he's just about to make fucking Psycho!"
When did Helen Mirren morph into a caricature of an actress?
Who is this?
Or Hitch writing a check to finance Psycho, which cost less than $1 million to make and was done with a TV crew. Only to become Hitch's most successful film at the box office.
I agree r13. It's so cliché and trite. I highly doubt anyone asked him to retire when he was just coming off North by NorthWest . Hitch was at the height of his career.
And I always thought that Hitchcock writing the check for this movie wasn't about the fact that [italic]no one[/italic] would finance it but for the fact he wanted total creative control.
I do wonder if they'll make a point that Tony Perkins' career hit a plateau after this movie. He really did risk his whole persona on this film and it didn't quite pay off for him in the long run did it? I wonder if Perkins knew what he was getting into .
I'm glad for James D'Arcy.
Anyone seen any previews yet?
I saw 'Hitchcock' yesterday. Johannson was not even close to Janet Leigh. Only the wig reminded me of Janet, nothing else.
