We saw the sparkling new stills from the film yesterday, but today Entertainment Weekly has debuted the awesome new retro throwback poster for HITCHCOCK. Cue the collective cinephile swoons! We couldn’t be happier about this as it would seem a trailer debut should be just around the corner.
“I think Alma accepts Hitch for exactly who he is and knows his idiosyncrasies and his crazy predilections,” director Sacha Gervasi tells EW. “She allows him to have his obsessions and I think our movie is about a point where they sort of escalate. Their marriage is absolutely touched off by his increasing obsessions with these women, but they were ultimately fantasy relationships. Hitch lived in this world of fantasy; to him it was more real than real life. And I think Alma was able to kind of, in this film at least, smash it down a little bit.”
HITCHCOCK opens the AFI Film Festival on November 1st and hits theaters in limited release on November 23rd.
