The other day I wrote a blog post about my love of classic romantic films and the intrigue of film noir, but I didn’t even begin to break down the classic horror and psychological thrillers that Alfred Hitchcock brought to life.
When I attended the Colorado Film School for a semester and took film classes at UCCS & UCD, my love of films such as The Birds, Vertigo, and Psycho was further satisfied by breaking each film down and studying the cinematography. I had the opportunity to take a deeper analysis of the films I had grown to love over the years, and it sparked in me a desire to not only continue writing and scriptwriting, but a desire to one day work on producing my own short films.
It’s without a doubt that Hitchcock was a true pioneer of so many techniques that helped defined the genre of suspense and psychological thrillers, and everyone in the film industry knows that, so it’s about time we see an exciting new film that profiles his life in the midst of production.
The forthcoming film, Hitchcock, is an exciting new film that profiles the life of Hitchcock (played by Anthony Hopkins) and his life during the production of his greatest film, Psycho.
The trailer for the film was released the other day, as well as the official movie poster. The film features quite the all-star cast. The role of Hitchcock’s wife is played by Helen Mirren, and Scarlett Johansson and Jessica Biel are the two women that play the roles in Pyscho.
If you’re a fan of Hitchcock (how could you not be?) then watch the trailer for the new movie. The official release will be Nov. 23 in select theatres, and this promises to be one of the many great films released this fall.
