The King's Speech trailer

The film The King's Speech has been on my radar for a while now thanks to the periodic updates on Enchanted Serenity of Period Films. Charleybrown just posted the new, full trailer for this picture, which according to the IMDB is due to release over Thanksgiving weekend. (That's probably a limited release date, but I'm hopeful that it will go into wide release in the US no later than Christmas, especially since this movie is getting so much Oscar buzz thanks to Colin Firth and Geoffrey Rush's performances.)

@Deborah - HA! I'm not gonna be able to get the Wormtail thing out of my head now. And thanks for reminding me about Jennifer Ehle being in this movie...a mini Pride & Prejudice reunion. Love it!

Wormail as Churchill, not to mention Bellatrix as Queen Elizabeth. That said the trailer looks amazing!

@Michelle - Now that I think about it, Bellatrix as Queen may be the more disturbing of the two, LOL! It's hard to escape a Harry Potter connection any more when you're talking about British film, isn't it?
