Watch: Second Teaser For HBO's 'The Girl' Sees Hitchcock Play Villain To Tippi Hedren's Victim

Following the first limerick-driven glimpse last week of HBO's Alfred Hitchcock/Tippi Hedren dramatization, “The Girl” -- promising a mysterious and even mannered look into the director (Toby Jones) and star's (Sienna Miller) tumultuous relationship -- a second teaser trailer has now appeared to establish even more of the film's tone prior to its fall showing.

Following the first limerick-driven glimpse last week of HBO's Alfred Hitchcock/Tippi Hedren dramatization, “The Girl” -- promising a mysterious and even mannered look into the director (Toby Jones) and star's (Sienna Miller) tumultuous relationship -- a second teaser trailer has now appeared to establish even more of the film's tone prior to its fall showing.

Directed by Julian Jarrold ("Becoming Jane," "Red Riding: 1974") and written by Gwenyth Hughes ("Miss Austen Regrets") “The Girl” centers around Hitch's obsessive tendencies toward Hedren, his leading lady for “Marnie” and “The Birds,” and more specifically focuses on their troubles during the latter film's production. After the rather vague images of the first trailer, this newest offering presents a few hints toward the themes and character dynamics of the piece, with Miller seemingly slipping further and further into the victim role, while Jones quietly commands her in alternately empowering and villainous ways.

Jarrold looks to have imbued the filmmaking legend with a unique vision, keeping in line with Hitchcock's tension-filled techniques while also reflecting back on the director's story itself, and altogether it looks to be a must-see event. Plus, it offers a chance to see Jones' portrayal before Anthony Hopkins tries his hand at it himself with next spring's biopic, “Hitchcock.”

“The Girl” premieres Oct. 20th on HBO. Check the trailer out below.
