Scarlett Johansson stars in new Hitchcock clip: watch now

A new clip has been released online from Sacha Gervasi’s biopic, Hitchcock , in which the great director (Anthony Hopkins) tells Janet Leigh (Scarlett Johansson) how he plans to film the famous shower scene.

The clip shows Leigh expressing her concerns over the nudity and violent content of the sequence, only for Hitch to assure her that it will all be done in the best possible taste.

That said, he does admit that there will be a certain amount of titillation inherent in such a scene, much to the knowing consternation of his wife, Alma Reville (Helen Mirren).

Take a look, below…

Johansson certainly makes for a convincing Leigh, and as noticed in the previous clip released, Hopkins and Mirren share some great chemistry. Mirren in particular expresses plenty with just the slightest curl of her mouth.

Co-starring Jessica Biel, James D’Arcy and Toni Collette, Hitchcock will open in the UK on 8 February 2013.
