"It’s the kind of thing that’s funny until it’s not, and then it’s not funny at all," 'Foxcatcher' director Bennett Miller told reporters at New York Film Festival of his latest film. The man behind 'Capote' and 'Moneyball' tackled the story of John du Pont, the disturbed successor of the du Pont family fortune who became obsessed with two Olympic wrestling brothers and tragically shot one to death on the grounds of his estate. 'Foxcatcher' was pegged early on as a prospective Oscar contender, and the director and cast members Channing Tatum, Steve Carell, Mark Ruffalo, Sienna Miller, Anthony Michael Hall and Vanessa Redgrave went a bit more in-depth on its creation.
We're only a few weeks away from the premiere of 'The Girl,' the new HBO feature based on the relationship between Alfred Hitchcock and Tippi Hedren -- which, if you'll recall, was rather intense as ol' Hitchy became a bit obsessed with the starlet. In this new featurette, HBO takes us behind the scenes for a closer look.
Who would think that there would be competing Alfred Hitchcock bio-pictures? HBO's 'The Girl' focuses on the filming of 'The Birds,' Hitchcock (here played by Toby Jones) and his interesting relationship with Tippi Hedren (Sienna Miller) -- the star he tried to create. HBO's got this one, and it hits the small screen October 20. And now there's a teaser.
