Latest Anthony Hopkins Items
This isn’t a movie for those who crave finely tuned plotting. Like its titular hero, this superhero sequel is big and broad and self-satisfied but not terribly concerned with the details. For those who like special-effects-ridden hero films, which, judging by recent box-office numbers, appears to be just about everyone, it’s also reasonably entertaining as well.
For his first professional acting job, a 22-year-old Anthony Hopkins took a train from South Wales to Manchester. With time to kill on a rainy day, he dropped off his bags and headed to the movies, where a long queue wound outside the cinema. The movie was, of course, Alfred Hitchcock's "Psycho."
