Fox Searchlight Releases New 'Hitchcock' Poster (Exclusive)
The 26th AFI Fest will kick off in Hollywood on Thursday night with the world premiere of Sacha Gervasi's Hitchcock, a star-studded drama about what was going on behind the scenes during the making of the classic motion picture Psycho (1960).
In the meantime, Fox Searchlight, the film's distributor, has released -- exclusively to The Hollywood Reporter -- a second theatrical poster for the film, following closely on the heels of another version that was released earlier in October.
This one features master filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock (Oscar winner Anthony Hopkins) holding a knife with one hand and his wife, Alma Reville (Oscar winner Helen Mirren), with the other, under the tagline, "Behind Every Psycho Is a Great Woman."
Lower down is a series of headshots of other cast members in character, arranged like a film strip, including Scarlett Johansson as Psycho actress Janet Leigh, Toni Collette as Hitch's assistant Peggy Robertson, Danny Huston as Alma's pal Whitfield Cook, Jessica Biel as Psycho actress Vera Miles, James D'Arcy as Psycho actor Anthony Perkins and Michael Wincott as serial killer/Psycho inspiration Ed Gein.
Hitchcock will go into limited release in the U.S. on Nov. 23.
