I like it!
I don't think I could handle one of my two favourite films of all time being turned into a dour, miserable parade. I like the comical edge that director Sacha Gervasi has injected into the proceedings, giving it a lighter edge to the typical sort of Hollywood biopic that we're used to seeing. The cast appears to be having a ball, too. In fact, this looks more like the HBO version of the tale, which is funny given HBO do in fact have a TV movie based on Hitchcock, The Girl. The sudden move in 2012 shows that maybe the distributor has something keener on their plate other than a mere performance only piece ala My Week with Marilyn or The Last Station. The former title, of course, seems to be the go-to reference title for Hitchcock, but that one seemed light as air due to a lack of dramatic drive. At least from the quick two and a half minute grab of this Hitchcock trailer, this particular mini-biopic of sorts doesn't look as if it will want for drama. "It's only a bloody movie."
just discussing yesterday!) so I am excited to see how Johansson handles it.
Have you seen the poster also?
the original Psycho poster, and doing a better job of it (seriously, that Psycho poster is one of the key art world's most lost opportunities). The red is vibrant, the typeface is cool, and it's certainly eye-catching in a world of stripes and floating heads.
Have you seen this though? It's a wicked little PSA from
Of course, all of this discussion about Hitchcock was just a means to, yet again, post this LOL-worthy moment in photography history. Any chance to discuss Psycho is a chance to include this picture. Let's just be thankful they cast Jessica Biel in Hitchcock and not Jessica Alba!
LOL, you guys! LOL!
