If you're the type who loves to get previews of upcoming films from the comfort of your own couch, you're in luck. Two trailers from much-awaited films -- "Hitchcock," starring Sir Anthony Hopkins as the famed "Psycho" director, and Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" -- have been released.
"Hitchcock" is based on a nonfiction book about the director, and focuses in on the relationship between Hitchcock and his wife Alma. Helen Mirren, who plays Alma, shines in the trailer, showing her own frustration as her husband takes the spotlight (and works with sexy actresses) while she's all but forgotten. Juicy tidbits from "Psycho," including Hitch himself taking a butcher knife to Scarlett Johansson, who plays shower-doomed Janet Leigh, also abound.
"Hitchcock" comes out Nov. 23. If you can't get enough about the fascinating director, HBO is airing an original movie, "The Girl," about his obsession with "The Birds" star Tippi Hedren, on Oct. 20.
"Django Unchained" is obviously a Tarantino film, with all the drama and violence and rapid-fire dialogue that comes with it. Jamie Foxx plays a slave turned bounty hunter who'll do anything to rescue his sold-off wife from creepy plantation owner Leonardo DiCaprio. Christoph Waltz, who so unnerved audiences in Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds," plays the German dentist-turned-bounty hunter who frees Django and introduces him to his new world.
Oh, and yes, that's Jonah Hill as the comic relief of the early KKK, the Regulators. Of course it is.
"Django Unchained" opens on Dec. 25, for those who like a little blood and guts with their Christmas turkey.
