Two films enter, one film leaves! Dueling "Snow White" pictures made way for dueling Alfred Hitchock pictures in 2012 (oh, how Hollywood loves to battle with itself). And the verdict may already be in. The version focusing on the master of suspense's releationship with Tippi Hedren staring Toby Jones and Sienna Miller, "The Girl" screened this weekend at the Hamptons International Film Festival and our reviewer wasn't overly impressed (however some other reviews have been a bit more generous). That leaves "Hitchcock," which centers on the making of the groundbreaking psychological horror film, "Psycho." The synopsis so far is rather vague, but provides enough to keep us interested:

Though it boasted a script from the venerable Peter Morgan ("The Queen," "Frost/Nixon") with an all-star cast and Fernando Meirelles ("City Of God," "The Constant Gardener") at the helm, "360" was coolly received when it premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last fall. But there are just too many intriguing elements to ignore, and with the film arriving in theaters later this summer, a new trailer has landed giving a good overview of the flick.

There was time when the idea of writing up a story about Anthony Hopkins being caught between two sequels would've seemed laughable. But welcome to 2012, where if you want keep the lights on and maintain some profile in Hollywood, you whore your soul to Marvel or sign up for a big franchise.

It appears things are finally moving on the long gestating supernatural-crime thriller, "Solace," which Anthony Hopkins has been attached to since last fall. In case you need a refresher, the film will follow a psychic doctor, played by Hopkins, who works for the FBI and is on the trail of a serial killer. And this movie has been in the works forever with a batch of writers (Ted Griffin, Sean Bailey, James Vanderbilt), actors (Morgan Freeman, Bruce Willis) and directors (Shekhar Kapur, Mark Pellington) coming and going at various points.

Well, we already got a peek at what Toby Jones looks like as Alfred Hitchock in "The Girl" -- one of two movies on the way about the director -- and now it's time for Anthony Hopkins to step into the famous silhouette, and it's pretty impressive.

In a photo studio in Vienna, a sleazy photographer (Johannes Krisch) is coaxing a young Slovakian woman Mirkha (Lucia Siposová) into posing for her first nude pictures. We soon find out this man is also a pimp and the pictures are for luring clients on the internet. Her younger sister Anna (Gabriela Marcinkova) tries to persuade her to reconsider but she has her mind made up. She needs the money and wants to change her life. Her sister intones through darkly humorous voiceover “If there’s a fork in the road, take it.” It’s a highly provocative opening for what ends up being just a so-so anthology of interweaving tales, even though director Fernando Meirelles ("City Of God," “The Constant Gardener”) assembles an international cast with interwoven stories spanning Vienna, Paris, London, Bratislava, Rio, Denver and Phoenix.

Looks like yet another script is going to have the honor of being covered with "NAR" notes. Anthony Hopkins has signed on to star in "Solace," a long-in-development script that would feature the Academy Award winner as a psychic ex-doctor who now works for the FBI. However, he soon meets his match when he encounters a serial killer who also possesses an uncanny sense of clairvoyance.
