Trailer Watch:Hyde Park on Hudson

Bill Murray is a great actor, there’s no denying that. And in the years that he’s stopped doing all but the quirkiest of comedies (see: Moonrise Kingdom or anything else by Wes Anderson), he’s had a lot of great roles. However, he’s only been nominated for only one Academy Award. But his new film has Oscar-bait written all over it. And it’s such great looking Oscar-bait that you likely won’t mind it’s Oscar-bait.

Here’s the trailer for Bill Murray playing FDR in Hyde Park on Hudson.

Sadly, Colin Firth and Helena Bonham Carter aren’t reprising their roles, but it looks like Samuel West and Olivia Colman will do a fine job. (I know it’s not a sequel…I’m being facetious) Laura Linney as FDR’s distant cousin and Olivia Williams as Eleanor round out the cast.

Hyde Park on Hudson is directed by Roger Michell (Notting Hill, Morning Glory) and hits theaters on December 7, 2012.
