While it seems like we've been getting various peeks at "The Girl" for a while now, it appears that the movie about the movies is even closer than we thought, and of course to fan those flames, two more stills have dropped in advance of the enticing picture.

With an October 20th premiere date on HBO now set, new snaps of Sienna Miller as Tippi Hedren and Toby Jones as Alfred Hitchcock have arrived, and in line with the previous images, it all looks appropriately glamorous. Directed by Julian Jarrold ("Becoming Jane," "Red Riding: 1974") and penned by Gwyneth Hughes ("Miss Austen Regrets," "Five Days"), the 90-minute drama for the BBC focuses on the director's obsessive relationship with Tippi Hedren, who starred in "The Birds" and "Marnie." And as Jones explains, the hubris of Hitchcock won't be too far away in his portrayal of the filmmaking legend.

“He knew every single aspect of filmmaking, and I think he thought, ‘Well, I’ll just make her into a good enough actress,” the actor told TVLine. “‘She has limitations as an actress, but I’m so able and so practical that I will be able to transform her to my needs.’”

Hopefully a trailer will arrive soon but until then, you can see very brief snippets of footage in BBC2's preview of their upcoming lineup. So what do you think, do Miller and Jones look like they got the goods?
