Dailies | A First Look at Oscar Favorite ‘The King's Speech’

Period drama stars Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush, and Helena Bonham Carter

Finally, the masses get a look at the film that critics have in the pole position for Oscar.

The Weinstein Company just released its trailer for "The King's Speech" on Yahoo! movies (though we found it via Incontention.com).

Believing the hype for a movie about a stuttering problem has been a stretch, but the trailer helps to define the stakes — King George VI has to overcome it if he's going to deliver an address at a time of immense national crisis, cue the dramatic swell of strings, etc. etc.
