Anthony Hopkins In 'Hitchcock'

Hurried into the the fall awards season race and set to open the AFI Fest next month -- does Fox Searchlight's "Hitchcock" about the legendary director (played by Anthony Hopkins) and the love for his wife (Helen Mirren), set against the backdrop of the making of "Psycho" have what it takes? Well, the first trailer is here to make the case.

“Hitchcock’s so enigmatic in one sense,” director Sacha Gervasi told EW about the challenge of making the movie. “Someone who portrays zero emotion. We didn’t really know emotionally that much about Hitchcock, and suddenly you have this whole world that opens up when Anthony Hopkins plays the role. It’s extraordinary. And he really enjoyed tiptoeing up to people who had just arrived on the set and going, ‘Good evening.’ Making people jump. I think he really found the role quite delicious.”

And indeed, Hopkins looks he fits hand in glove in the role, but we have to say, Mirren is looking very strong as a possible nominee as well. The smattering of ensemble talent looks to fill out the picture nicely, and overall, this looks far meatier and more compelling than the similarly themed "My Week With Marilyn" last year.

Co-starring an extended ensemble, including Scarlett Johansson, James D'Arcy, Jessica Biel, Toni Colette, Danny Huston, Michael Stuhlbarg, Michael Wincott, Kurtwood Smith, Wallace Langham and Ralph Macchio, "Hitchcock" gets a little crazy on November 23rd.
