Hitchcock Trailer: Anthony Hopkins Is Unrecognizably Awesome in Oscar-Grabbing Fat Suit

Sacha Gervasi (Anvil! The Story of Anvil) explores the strained marriage of Alfred Hitchock and his wife during the filming of the risky Psycho in 1959 in Hitchock. Anthony Hopkins plays the title character, and absolutely nails it, while Helen Mirren plays his wife. Scarlett Johannson gets a knife in the shower as Janet Leigh, while Jessica Biel, Michael Stuhlbarg, Toni Collete, and RALPH MACHIO round out the rest of the cast.

More than anything, it looks like an absolute gas to watch, more fun than dramatic.

  • Idle Primate

    in the header pic, hopkins all hitchcocked up is giving me uncanny valley vertigo

  • Oh, that looks like fun.

    It still sounds like Anthony Hopkins doing a Hitchcock impersonation...but it's Anthony Hopkins doing a Hitchcock impersonation. It's all good.

    Wait, there's two of these now? I only knew about the one with Toby Jones. First upstaged for Capote, now for Hitchcock? That guy just canNOT catch a break!

  • lowercase_ryan

    I could watch Helen Mirren all. day. long. This looks fantastic.

  • Nadine

    Oh this is going to be marvellous. MARVELLOUS

  • "GOOOWd AWFt-AH-noon."

    And Helen Mirren looking hotter than Scarlett Johansson.

    Let me just buy a copy now.

  • Samantha Klein

    Anthony Hopkins sounds like Michael Caine, and Helen Mirren is going to steal this picture out from under him without breaking a sweat. And I'll probably watch her do it.

  • annie

    Is it weird this is the most attractive I've ever found Scarlett Johansson?

  • BiblioGlow

    No, it's like Joss Whedon taught her how to emote and now she's unstoppable. I'm in favor.

  • Snath

    I watched Avengers again yesterday and I kept relishing her little looks and expressions and acting. She's always been beautiful, but now she's an actress. Hurray for Whedon!

  • ,

    Hopkins as Hitchcock.

    Murray as FDR.

    Gonna be a good season for biopics.

  • NoPantsMcLane

    Benjamin Walker as Lincoln.

  • BWeaves

    That does look fun.

    I didn't think Hopkins looked like Hitchcock in the stills, but damn if I didn't believe him in motion.

  • Anna von Beav

    Agreed 100%, on both counts.

  • @2d80d3b2b1ef90f7dafea35e3a7b005f:disqus you trailer-making people. I quit working at shoprite and now I make $34h - $8Oh...how? I'm working online!

    I love Sir Anthony, but it looks like a guy in a fat suit rather than an actual fat guy.

    I realise that it IS a guy in a fat suit, but you know what I mean.

  • Rooks

    For the life of me, I can't recognize Anthony Hopkins. I can't. I know it's him, but I still don't see him. My brain can do amazing things, like repeating conversations I've had five years ago and adding in all the witty things I should've said and making me feel bad about the fact that I didn't say them, or giving me a slight urge to pee the second I'm comfortably settled in bed, or imagine there's no heaven, but it can't see Anthony Hopkins in this odd, bald man in the trailer. What's wrong with me?

    But anyway, plus points for using a Woodkid song in the trailer, you trailer-making people.

  • annie

    I have to agree completely.

  • damnitjanet

    I'm in.
