It’s official. After some early rumors, Fox Searchlight has pushed their biopic on Alfred Hitchcock into the awards race. Starring Anthony Hopkins as the master filmmaker, Sacha Gervasi’s film follows him during the making of Psycho and now we finally know when we’ll be able to see it.
Also starring Scarlett Johansson, James D’Arcy, Helen Mirren, Toni Collette, Michael Stuhlbarg, Jessica Biel and Danny Huston, the studio tweeted the below poster and announced a November 23rd, 2012 release date, which places it the same weekend as their head studio’s Life of Pi, as well as Red Dawn, Rise of the Guardians and another other major Oscar contender, Silver Linings Playbook. Check out the poster below as we wait for more news and likely a trailer soon.
