As America waits to see Steven Spielberg’s Abraham Lincoln film, starring Daniel Day-Lewis in what some are treating as an automatic Oscar-winning performance, here comes another “Hail to the Chief!” kind of movie, starring Bill “He’s Overdue” Murray as FDR.
Here’s the trailer for Hyde Park on the Hudson.
It looks a little bit too tailored for the Masterpiece Theatre crowd — made from the same stuff as The King’s Speech. And this trailer, let’s face it, launches Murray’s Oscar campaign early. But I don’t care about such perceived rivalries. This cast — Laura Linney, Olivia Williams, Olivia Colman — will put me in a theatre seat this December.
