If the dueling Alfred Hitchcock movies were based solely on first look images, we’ve got our winner. We saw Toby Jones last month in the other film and today we get our first look at Anthony Hopkins as Alfred Hitchcock, in Sacha Gervasi‘s Hitchcock. The make-up provides for quite a spot-on transformation and I can’t wait to see how a master like Hopkins follows suit with his performance.

Telling the romance (or lack thereof) between him as his wife Alma Reville (Helen Mirren), the film gives us a behind-the-scenes look at the making of his classic horror film Psycho. Check out the image below via People for the film also starring Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Biel, Toni Collette, Danny Huston, Michael Stuhlbarg and Kurtwood Smith.

Expect a 2013 release for Hitchcock.

What do you make of Hopkins as the suspense master?
