The trailer for Sacha Gervasi's "Hitchcock" has landed, featuring what looks to be an ace, devilish performance from Anthony Hopkins as Hitch, and a characteristically wry, smart turn from Helen Mirren as his wife and editor, Alma Reville.

Based on Stephen Rebello's book "Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho," the film centers on the love story between the master of suspense and his wife (who was a collaborator, creative force and screen credit on many of his films) during the tumultuous filming of the slasher classic. Scarlett Johannson keeps her signature husky voice to play Janet Leigh, which doesn't quite resonate with the actual onscreen vibe of the "Psycho" star, but channeling tends to work better than imitation, and we're interested to see how she interprets the role. Very little of James D'Arcy thus far, who in a recent People magazine spread looks to be a dead ringer for Anthony Perkins.

"Hitchcock" premieres November 1 at AFI FEST, with a limited release on November 23.
