Yesterday, the cast and crew of “Hitchcock” has attended the film’s Los Angeles premiere. Over 200 pictures have been added to the gallery. Many “Hitchcock” related video clips and interviews will be added with the next update.
Here’s a first promotional interview for “Hitchcock” by Cinema Blend: Though it’s now considered one of Alfred Hitchcock’s masterworks, Psycho was initially deemed a risky prospect by everyone in Hollywood, even Hitch’s most ardent supporters like his wife Alma Reville and his devoted assistant Peggy Robertson. The struggle to get Psycho made is the focus of the new film Hitchcock, but at its throbbing heart are the two women who helped this genius filmmaker make the best out of Hitch’s films and his iconic image. Toni Collette tackled the role of Peggy Robertson, who served as Hitchcock’s personal assistant through four decades and scores of films and television productions. While she is known to have been Hitch’s right hand woman and dedicated defender, little else is certain about her or her role in the makings of his films. This offered a unique challenge to Collette, who had much fewer historical resources on which to base her character than the rest of the cast. But by focusing on what kind of person Peggy must have been to be able to handle 40 years of Hitchcock’s reputed bad behavior and wicked humor, Collette created a portrait of Robertson that shows her to be sharp, collected, and ready for anything. The complete interview can be read here.
Lots of new “Hitchcock” related video clips have been released today and added to the video archive. First, an on-set interview with Toni Collette, talking about her character Peggy Robertson, and working with Anhtony Hopkins and Helen Mirren. Then, the b-roll from the making of the film. And two scenes have been released as well. Enjoy the new clips.
The New York premiere of “Hitchcock” will be held today, November 18, at the Ziegfeld Theater. Chances are good that Toni will attend since she has been announced as a guest on “The Talk” on November 21, means she’ll be on hand in the USA to promote the film. Expect pictures from the premiere and coverage on her talkshow appearance later.
