Alfred Hitchcock: Still Hot in Hollywood After 70 Years (VIDEO)

Thanks to two new movies and a deluxe Blu-ray box set, Alfred Hitchcock is as hot as ever, not just 30-plus years after his death, but more than 70 of Hollywood moviemaking.

Rightfully dubbed “The Master of Suspense,” Hitchcock was a top-shelf purveyor of thrills whose works were as influential as they were entertaining.

With the theatrical release of Sacha Gervasi’s Hitchcock, Celebuzz examines the filmmaker’s legacy, and takes a look at the entertainment industry’s tributes to his iconic body of work.

Hitchcock comes on the heels of Universal's Alfred Hitchcock: The Masterpiece Collection, as well as HBO’s The Girl. The former is a 15-film boxed set that collects virtually all of the filmmaker’s major work in the United States, and the latter is a chronicle of the troubled relationship Tippi Hedren (played by Sienna Miller) had with Hitchcock (Toby Jones) during the filming of The Birds.

Although both of the films profiled in these biopics are decidedly horror-oriented – Hitchcock looks at the making of Psycho – the box set provides a broader view of his career as longtime fans and newcomers have the opportunity to watch murder mysteries (Rope), political actioners (North By Northwest) and psychological thrillers (Vertigo) among others.

Watch Celebuzz’ overview of the new Hitchcock-themed projects coming out of Hollywood above. Below, check out the theatrical trailer for Hitchcock, which opens in theaters November 21.
