We’ve been teased and now we are tempted with a new full-length trailer for the HBO film The Girl. Examining legendary director Alfred Hitchcock‘s (Toby Jones) work with his The Birds star actress Tippi Hedren (Sienna Miller), this full trailer is a downright creepish insight into Hitchcock’s brooding fixation with Hedren. The HBO biopic will show plenty of scenes on The Birds set, and appears to be complimented with a strong performance from Miller. As of right now, we can’t yet tell if Jones’ performance as Hitchcock is the appropriate amount of creepy or just plain weird. Nevertheless, this film continues to shape up to be a must see.
Checkout the full trailer below:
