'Hitchcock' trailer: Scarlett Johansson nails 'Psycho' shower scene

Fox Searchlight released its first trailer Wednesday (Oct. 10) for "Hitchcock," the movie about the famous horror director's experience making "Psycho" while dealing with adversity from studios fearing the sexual and violent nature of the film.

Anthony Hopkins looks the part -- with the help of some makeup -- and the casting of Scarlett Johansson as Janet Leigh is spot-on.

"How are you going to shoot the shower scene? It's only because from here up," Johansson as Leigh says, referencing her ample upper half, "I'm not exactly boyish."

Helen Mirren plays Hitchcock's wife, who mostly supports him as he struggles to get the $800,000 to independently produce the movie within a movie.

"Hitchcock" was originally set for a 2013 release but got bumped up to a Nov. 23 opening -- most likely to get in under the Academy Awards deadline.

Check out the trailer below.


Think it looks Oscar-worthy?
