OK, so we set up the Battle of the Hitchcocks* on Monday. Here's the latest salvo – the trailer for Fox Searchlight's "Hitchcock."

(*Note: not really a battle)

Helen Mirren serves as a lively principal co-star to Anthony Hopkins, in contrast to HBO's "The Girl," in which Imelda Staunton is significant but more straightlaced while necessarily taking a backseat to Sienna Miller's Tippi Hedren – aka, the title character.

The whole thing looks like it might be a good deal of fun.
