Fox Searchlight Pictures has released the first poster for director Sacha Gervasi’s Hitchcock. The film charts the making of Psycho and Hitchcock’s relationship with his wife, Alma. The drama stars Anthony Hopkins as the legendary director, Helen Mirren as his wife and Scarlett Johansson as Psycho’s star Janet Leigh.
I like the poster, it’s plain, simple and it gives off a 60s vibe. It’s the type of thing that the man himself might have gone for – putting his ego front and centre. Fox Searchlight has also announced that the film will go on limited release in the US November 23, a move which thrusts it into the Oscar race.
Does anyone else find it interesting that the title on the poster has been placed across Hitch’s…well, you get my drift.
