Fox just announced that March 12 will be the release date for "Hitchcock," the 2012 tongue-in-cheek biodrama starring Anthony Hopkins as the Master of Suspense and Helen Mirren as his talented wife, Alma, set during the time of his filming of "Psycho." Like "My Week with Marilyn" the film weaves together plot elements from the film and behind the scenes to create a fascinating portrait of one of cinema's most enduring directors.
Plagued by both a reckless ego and nagging self-doubt, Hollywood legend Alfred Hitchcock (Hopkins) becomes obsessed with a grisly murder story that the studios won’t back. Determined, he risks his reputation, his home and even the love of his wife Alma (Mirren), as he sets out to make the film. Ultimately, Hitch wins Alma over, and the two collaborate to create an enduring masterpiece – "Psycho." Also starring Scarlett Johansson as Janet Leigh, James D'Arcy as Anthony Perkins, Toni Collette as Hitchcock's assistant, and Jessica Biel as Vera Miles, "Hitchcock" is “a knockout from start to finish” (Rex Reed, New York Observer).
The film, rated PG-13 for "some violent images, sexual content and thematic material," will be released on Blu-ray combo pack only, so if you want the DVD you'll have to go this route.
