The King's Speech Trailer

Get ready for your first look at this year's Best Picture frontrunner. The Weinstein Company has debuted the official trailer for Tom Hooper's The King's Speech starring Colin Firth as King George VI as well as Geoffrey Rush, Helena Bonham Carter, Guy Pearce and Timothy Spall as Churchill. I had the chance to see this a week ago and totally loved it, one of my favorite films of the year and I truly believe that Firth will get the Oscar and that it has a very strong chance of winning Best Picture. This is a fantastic trailer to introduce you to the film and also give you a look at some of Danny Cohen's gorgeous cinematography. Watch below!

Really alex? Before you get on me, this looks GOOD. But 10/10, how! It just looks like your typical political british film. A good film, but not great. But ill give it a chance

A period piece with humor,tense dramatic moments, and relatable characters? I haven't seen anything like that in a long time, I'm definitely in...

#3 - You haven't even seen the film! You're criticizing my score based simply on a trailer? That's ridiculous, you need to actually see it first. Trust me, I'm the first that will tell you if something is a bland, boring British drama, but THIS is not one of those films and it goes above and beyond that and will probably win Best Picture. Maybe you should SEE it first before saying something like that!

@alex, sorry I came off like that. It was a wrong choice of words. And I will see the film before really judging

I hate when the movies i want to see are rated R (I'm 14 years old and my parents don't let me watch R movies so that's why)

Alex, I'd like to hear your opinion on our UK film industry. How do you think it's doing at the moment? Are we producing enough talent (Andrew Garfield, Noel Clarke, Jamie Bell etc...) more than just allowing the 'older generation' (Colin Firth, Helen Mirren etc...) to make a name for themselves?...

McQueen on Sep 23, 2010

Where was Guy Pearce? This looks pretty good though.

I have to agre alex. Oscar worthy goodness here. Firth surprised me, and Helen wasn't doing anything that made me think her character might be on something. Also, I love almost any film that gives us a glimpse into the past so...

I've seen the film too and can back up Alex in his praise. Colin Firth and Geoffrey Rush are locks to be nominated and possibly even win. As for #10, Guy Pearce has a small role but it's still surprising he's not in the trailer.

that was so...So...SO!! good, I'm in...for sure. @McQueen will you take an opinion from a lesser being? if so read on! I can sum up the new Era of your cinema in one title...Atonement, a great film, beautifully shot, brillinatly acted, and truly heart breaking. If I must add to it I'd throw in The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, great film Andrew Garfield was fantastic in his role. One line in particular "Whoo! Whoo! Hey, Parny. I'm going to Chicago, baby! I'm driving a stick!" eventough its said by an American...hmm.

Looks bloody brilliant, and I'm not even British.

Alex, is this your movie of the year so far? How about Inception?

eru88 on Sep 23, 2010

16

I forgot Black Swan as well. How about Social Network do you think it will be nominated for best picture?

You guys just opened a nice subject ... How do you vote for a movie ? Do you compare a movie with another while voting ??? ... or it is just a fast decision for how you feel just after watching the movie ? I hope there was a topic of how everyone give a vote to a movie ... Because I really would like to know how you deiced to give a movie 10/10 ... and what is the elements that make you take that decision !!! ------------------------------- As for the movie ..it looks really funny .. and Colin Firth is trying hard to get an Oscar .. but we still have time to see if there is anyone ells coming and trying harder 😉 ... As for British Movies .. I can say that maybe we just need to have a bit change and see something different .. As for me I like British movies ... I am not speaking about drama and the tea time .. but Comedy, Horror and of course Science fiction .. 😉

I can't stand British period pieces and especially movies about the royal family... although I do love the WWII era in general... and Colin Firth has always struck me as dull... however, the supporting cast is amazing and Colin Firth looked wonderful. Aside from the overcooked music in the trailer I agree that this does look Oscar worthy. Oh and a great film. Which is not always the same. Hurt Locker WOW. Just realized. If this DOES win Best Picture, It'll be 2 years in a row for Guy Pearce.

just fromt the trailer, it looks like it could be the best movie of the year. i'm very impressed and will be there opening night.

I didn't know that about King George. Looks good though. I plan on seeing it. Deathly Hallows the week before then this, cool.

radiogorillaz on Sep 24, 2010

Great cast, looks good.

arjones on Sep 24, 2010

It looks ok but it will not win best picture. It will be a nominee for sure but it looks like your average drama with more star power. I remember a year ago you were predicting Precious will win best picture. I do think Colin Firth has a great chance at winning but the movie is simply not epic enough to win.

as tropic thunder would say any actor that plays up any sort of mental condition/disorder is prime oscar bait see rainman/forest gump/ etc etc

@Xerxex, even though I haven't seen Atonement (as much praise as it has), just looking at the damn poster puts me off! It basically looks like something the BBC does year in, year out. I'm just thankful for guys like Edgar Wright, Duncan Jones, Danny Boyle (sometimes!) etc... @shero, I hear what you're saying!

McQueen on Sep 24, 2010

25

@McQueen do yourself a big favor and watch the film, the poster is somewhat off putting, but the film is a wonderful tale, not a romance filled period piece...I assure you!

Xerxex on Sep 24, 2010

26

My thoughts EXACTLY! The trailer looks fine, but I wouldn't bett on it winning Best Picture just yet.

John Doe on Sep 24, 2010

@Xerxex, If they happen to broadcast it on TV, I'll TRY and watch it!

McQueen on Sep 25, 2010

28

The only thing i can say so far is that this was a great trailer! (There should be an Oscar for "Best Trailers" too!)

pipo on Sep 25, 2010
