Colin Firth and Geoffrey Rush in official “King’s Speech” trailer


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Am I the only one who thought the word “Speech” in the title of Tom Hooper’s “The King’s Speech” referred to Colin Firth’s verbal abilities?

It turns out, instead, that it references an actual speech Firth’s stammering character, King George VI, must give to his devastated nation during wartime. That’s one of a handful of things I learned about Hooper’s crowd-pleaser now that an official trailer has found its way online. Check it out below:

“Speech” has been talking up a good game as it makes its way through the fall film festival circuit. It won the audience award in Toronto, charmed critics in Telluride, and climbed to the top of several Oscar charts compiled by seasoned awards trackers.

Now all that’s left is for most of us to see the actual film!

“The King’s Speech” tells the story of England’s leader receiving speech therapy from an unconventional teacher. It stars Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush, Helena Bonham Carter, Jennifer Ehle and Guy Pearce. It will open in theaters on Nov. 26.
