New Hitchcock Film Trailer – With Psycho Shower Scene Included!

After yesterday’s Halloween post about scary shower curtains, featuring a couple of Psycho-inspired shower curtains, we thought it would be a good excuse to post about the up-and-coming Hitchcock film. Unlike Hitchcock’s usual suspense and psychological thriller films, this one is a bio about the director’s struggle to finance the famous Psycho movie.

Sir Anthony Hopkins is set to play The Master of Suspense, while Helen Mirren takes on the part of his wife, Alma. Scarlett Johansson will be taking on the role of Janet Leigh, who was cast as Marion Crane in the original 1960 Psycho film.

The shower scene in which Crane was famously killed early on in the movie is one of the most iconic scenes in film history. This new film will go behind the scenes and show how the filming of the shower scene was conducted, with Hitchcock holding the knife, and Alma even advising her husband to kill off the heroine in the first thirty minutes. The film will see also Johansson recreating the famous Psycho shower scene…

The official trailer for the film, which is called ‘Hitchcock’, has now been released and you can view it here:

The film is released in cinemas around the UK on 8th February 2013 – and we can’t wait!
