Alfred Hitchcock Presents

The drama about the making of Hitchcock’s Psycho, and particularly the hurdles and roadblocks that the great British director went through in order to bring it come to fruition. Hitchcock was discouraged left and right from making it. The script was seen as way too dark and perverse (especially with the lead female star getting killed off after 45 minutes), and no one wanted to see a movie based more or less on the macabre exploits of serial killer Ed Gein.

5 Questions With James D'Arcy Of 'Hitchcock'!

20th Century Fox Home Entertainment released Sacha Gervasi’s Hitchcock on Blu-ray and DVD (and iTunes) last week. To that end, I recently chatted with James D’Arcy (In Their Skin) about the weight of portraying none other than Anthony Perkins in the film.

Anthony Hopkins stars as Hitchcock, along with Helen Mirren as his wife during the making of Hitchcock’s seminal movie Psycho. Scarlett Johansson plays Janet Leigh while Jessica Biel portrays Vera Miles. Danny Huston, Toni Collette, Jessica Biel, Michael Stuhlbarg, Michael Wincott, Richard Portnow and Kurtwood Smith also star.

The project is based on the non-fiction book by Stephen Rebello that tracks how Hitchcock, at the height of his game as a director, decided to make a “lowly” horror movie. No studio wanted to touch it initially, so Hitchcock scrounged for financing by himself. The movie, of course, became one of his biggest hits and one of the most influential of all time.

And now we have the first official trailer for the film. Anthony Hopkins plays Hitchcock of course, and I’m not sure I can fault his performance – but I’m not sold on the makeup.

The official Facebook page for Self Storage has been updated with a few behind-the-scenes pics and the news that Eliza Robert will now star alongside Eric Roberts, Michael Berryman, Jonathan Silverman and Tommy DeNucci in the Tom DeNucci-directed horror pic. “‘Self Storage’ tells the story of Jake, the night watchman working at a highly-secured self-storage facility. His pals are home from college and looking to party. Jake decides to invite them to his work and throw a fiesta of his own. Innocent mischief turns a naughty night of sex, drugs and rock & roll into an evening of pure terror. Barbed wire fences are meant to keep people out, but these fences keep people in.

While it’s unfortunately not in English, and horribly pixelated, you can get a first look at Lasse Hallstrom’s The Hypnotist in the following international trailer. “In the novel, Detective Linna investigates a grisly triple homicide where the only survivor, a young boy, is too traumatized to testify. Linna convinces a famous psychologist, against his better judgment, to hypnotize the boy, setting off a terrifying chain of events.” Mikael Persbrandt, Lena Olin and Tobias Zilliacus all star.

 Scarlett Johansson As Janet Leigh & James DArcy As Anthony Perkins In Making of Psycho!

Fox Searchlight’s Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho just became one of my most anticipated films of 2013.

Variety reports that Director Sacha Gervasi has tapped the stunning Scarlett Johansson and James D’Arcy to play Psycho stars Janet Leigh and Anthony Perkins, respectively!

As previously reported, Anthony Hopkins will play the iconic director, while Helen Mirren will play his wife, Alma.

Gervasi’s pic follows Hitchcock and his struggles during the filmmaking of the horror classic.

John McLaughlin penned the script. Ivan Reitman, Joe Medjuck and Tom Pollack will produce through their Montecito Picture Company along with Tom Thayer.

Sources tell the mag that Making of Psycho has drawn comparisons to My Week With Marilyn, and that the role of Janet Leigh could lead to the same awards consideration for Johansson that the Marilyn Monroe role did for Michelle Williams.

Though D’Arcy’s role is smaller compared to his co-stars, it’s still considered a major part given how important Perkins is to the Psycho legacy. READ MORE
