'Hyde Park on Hudson'

Release Date: Dec. 7

The Plot: On the eve of WWII, the King (Samuel West) and Queen (Olivia Coleman) of England head to upstate New York for a weekend to stay with President Franklin Delano Roosevelt (Bill Murray), his wife Eleanor (Olivia Williams, Murray’s costar in "Rushmore"), and his cousin-mistress Daisy (Laura Linney).

The Buzz: According to early reviews, Oscar-nominated Murray ("Lost in Translation") may very well be headed to the ceremony again for this biopic that compliments the actor’s real-life eccentricity. "It’s much harder to play beloved than to play a rotten guy," Murray said before the film's screening last month, "that really sets a high bar for your behavior and your acting and what you project." Also fine-tuning his performance: Roger Michell, the director behind "Notting Hill and Venus," which won legendary actor Peter O’Toole an Oscar nomination in 2007.
