Dame Helen Mirren travels to Shanghai

Tuesday June 11, 2013

Dame Helen Mirren is on her way to Shanghai to attend the city's film festival and support her new film Hitchcock.

The actress will attend the June film alongside her festival with her director husband Taylor Hackford who will introduce his own film, Parker, said The Hollywood Reporter.

Dame Helen, who played Alfred Hitchcock's wife Alma Reville opposite Anthony Hopkins in the Sacha Gervasi film Hitchcock, will meet the audience at a screening of the film on 19 June.

The film follows the couple during the time that Hitchcock was making his classic horror film Psycho and the screening will be part of a showcase of Hitchcock's silent films from the 1920s.

Shanghai is mainland China's biggest film festival and directors Oliver Stone and Tom Hooper will also be in attendance.

Dame Helen voices scary educator Dean Hardscrabble in the soon to be released Pixar animation Monsters University.
