'Hitchcock' coming to Blu and DVD. Plus 'The Hitchcock Collection' news

I didn't get the chance to see Sacha Gervasi's Hitchcock when it played theaters, which pissed me off a bit, but we won't have to wait too long to see the film hit Blu-ray and DVD. On March 12th 20th Century Fox will be releasing the film, which focuses on the period of the legend's life whilst he was making Psycho, on Blu-ray/DVD combo pack, and it looks to have a decent amount of extras included (see below). Also set for release on Blu-ray on the same day is the three disc The Hitchcock Collection, which will include Notorious, Rebecca and Spellbound.

Oscar® winners Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren* are spellbinding in this provocative story about the making of one of cinema’s most iconic films. Plagued by both a reckless ego and nagging self-doubt, Hollywood legend Alfred Hitchcock (Hopkins) becomes obsessed with a grisly murder story that the studios won’t back. Determined, he risks his reputation, his home and even the love of his wife Alma (Mirren), as he sets out to make the film. Ultimately, Hitch wins Alma over, and the two collaborate to create an enduring masterpiece – Psycho. Also starring Scarlett Johansson, Toni Collette and Jessica Biel, Hitchcock is “a knockout from start to finish” (Rex Reed, New York Observer).

*Hopkins: 1991, Actor, The Silence of the Lambs. Mirren: 2006, Actress, The Queen.
