Video: New Movie Trailers for 'Hyde Park on Hudson' Starring Bill Murray as FDR

Hyde Park on Hudson is yet another film that  screened at TIFF on Friday night. A film you’ll be hearing a lot more about as awards season approaches, it stars Bill Murray as President Franklin D. Roosevelt and Laura Linney as his cousin/companion/possible mistress, Daisy. (It also reunites Murray with his Rushmore costar, Olivia Williams, who plays Eleanor.)

The reviews coming out of TIFF have been stellar. The UK’s Guardian said that it is “tipped as this year's The King's Speech for the main Toronto award {The People’s Choice}, for it shares not just the same classily tub-thumping tone but also a number of characters. The film is based on a summit that Franklin D Roosevelt (Bill Murray) threw for George VI and Queen Elizabeth (Samuel West and Olivia Colman), who were reportedly outraged to find hot dogs on the menu.”

The film also screened at Telluride and will be part of the BFI London Film Festival next month. In celebration of its TIFF premiere, Focus Features has released a new version of the trailer as well as three brand new clips, all of which you can see below. You can see everything we have on the film here.
