Whaddup Cinema Reconists! Today, courtesy of People, we get our first look at Anthony Hopkins in the upcoming film Hitchcock!
One of my all time favorite actors playing one of my all time favorite directors? Yes please! The biopic will center around Alfred Hitchcock’s production of the 1960 classic Psycho. While growing up, I became very familiar with and fond of Hitchcock’s work through my mom, a huge fan herself (The Birds is one of our favorite films of all time). She was the original family horror/thriller aficionado. While many of my childhood friends were not allowed to watch such things, my mother was always willing let me watch ANY horror movie I pleased with her (just as long as there was no nudity… because, while monsters, murderers, and mayhem are clearly acceptable, bare breasts apparently send young children into a frenzy of mind melting chaos). Like her, I was immune to the scares and simply became fascinated with the entire genre, which then led to my current state of horror-loving fanaticism.
Maybe I can convince Condog (Connie, my mom, to people who aren’t down with the lingo) to come along with Cinema Recon when Hitchcock hits theaters in 2013…
