Well It’s finally here, a teaser trailer for the upcoming Alfred Hitchcock biopic starring Toby Jones and Sienna Miller. It’s only 30 seconds long but it manages to use every bit of those short seconds to their fullest. Jones sounds fantastic as Hitchcock and the old school style of editing works wonders for this teaser. I’ve been excited for this since its announcement and have never doubted Jones as Hitchcock. Now, with a teaser on our hands I can say with out a doubt that the wait was worth it.
In 1962 many people would say that Hitchcock was at the height of his career and creativity. He chose an unknown fashion model to play the main character in his most ambitious film, The Birds. Hitchcock was known for sculpting his actresses into the perfect blondes of his imagination but as he was doing this for Hedren he became obsessed with this impossible dream of winning her real love. Because of his failure to do so, it is said that it arguably destroyed both of their careers. This story about Hitchcock is absolutely fascinating and shows a rare glimpse into the life of one of the greatest filmmakers of all time.
The Girl will premier on HBO on October 20th, just in time for Halloween.
