‘Hitchcock’, Old And New Versions, Arrive On Blu-ray This March

On March 12, Fox Home Entertainment is releasing both the film, Hitchcock, starring Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren, along with a classic collection of Alfred Hitchcock’s films, which are being released onto Blu-ray in a 3-disc set.  This collection includes Notorious, Rebecca, and Spellbound.  Hitchcock was met with some criticism regarding the film’s plotting and style revolving around the making of Psycho, but I thought it was light, fluffy fun, with some fun work from the ensemble cast involved (review HERE).  The collection of some of Hitch’s classic films, on the other hand, is great because, as stated, they are classic films.  Now with both arriving on Blu-ray on the same day, be sure to continue on to read and learn more about these upcoming releases.


Oscar® winners Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren* are spellbinding in this provocative story about the making of one of cinema’s most iconic films. Plagued by both a reckless ego and nagging self-doubt, Hollywood legend Alfred Hitchcock (Hopkins) becomes obsessed with a grisly murder story that the studios won’t back. Determined, he risks his reputation, his home and even the love of his wife Alma (Mirren), as he sets out to make the film. Ultimately, Hitch wins Alma over, and the two collaborate to create an enduring masterpiece – Psycho. Also starring Scarlett Johansson, Toni Collette and Jessica Biel, Hitchcock is “a knockout from start to finish” (Rex Reed, New York Observer).
*Hopkins: 1991, Actor, The Silence of the Lambs. Mirren: 2006, Actress, The Queen.
