If there is one thing that HBO's "The Girl" and Fox Searchlight's "Hitchcock" seem to underscore, it's that Alfred Hitchcock surely liked his leading ladies. To what degree and how sleazy he may or may not have been, is open to interpretation. And while the Toby Jones vehicle portrays him as a ruthless cad, Sacha Gervasi's picture -- set during the making of "Psycho" -- takes a bit of a lighter air, though the helmer certainly doesn't mind making sure the curves are framed properly. And fresh off the film's AFI Fest debut, some new images have arrived giving a closer look at the rest of the extended cast, including the actresses who take on some classic cinema roles.

If there is one thing that HBO's "The Girl" and Fox Searchlight's "Hitchcock" seem to underscore, it's that Alfred Hitchcock surely liked his leading ladies. To what degree and how sleazy he may or may not have been, is open to interpretation. And while the Toby Jones vehicle portrays him as a ruthless cad, Sacha Gervasi's picture -- set during the making of "Psycho" -- takes a bit of a lighter air, though the helmer certainly doesn't mind making sure the curves are framed properly. And fresh off the film's AFI Fest debut, some new images have arrived giving a closer look at the rest of the extended cast, including the actresses who take on some classic cinema roles.

As you know, Anthony Hopkins takes on the titular lead and above and below you'll see: Helen Mirren as his wife Alma, Scarlett Johansson as Janet Leigh, Jessica Biel as Vera Miles, Toni Colette as the director's assistant Peggy Robertson and Michael Stuhlbarg as legendary agent and Hollywood figure Lew Wasserman. Thus far, the movie was been warmly but not quite ecstaticly received, so we'll see how it plays out in the Oscar race in the weeks to come, though acting nominations are still within reason.

"Hitchcock" opens on November 23rd in limited release.
