Last night "Hitchcock" had its grand premiere in New York City at the Ziegfeld Theater. The turnout was impressive, including the fabulously styled stars of the film, with the exception of main man Anthony Hopkins, which elicited some confusion among the densely packed crowds of onlookers and attendees.
The film revolves around the life of the late director Alfred Hitchcock, specifically during the making of "Psycho." Hopkins plays the lead role in this biographical flick.
The stars that were able to attend the event did not disappoint. Helen Mirren, who plays the wife of the legendary director Alma Reville, Scarlett Johansson, who plays the actress Janet Leigh, and Jessica Biel, who plays another actress Vera Miles, were all dressed to the nines on the red carpet.
Other stars of the film to attend the event were Toni Collette, Danny Huston, Taylor Hackford, and John Voight.
Curiously, Anthony Hopkins was absent from the star-studded opening. One of his representatives told Daily Mail Online, "Mr. Hopkins is currently in production on two films, so unfortunately he was unable to attend last night's premiere of Hitchcock in New York due to his schedule."
"Hitchcock" comes out in select American theaters on November 23.
