A new, very Colin Firth-centric international trailer has been unveiled for Tom Hooper's much loved, highly touted "The King's Speech."

Playing almost like a Firth For Your Consideration montage, the trailer colors in the storyline in greater detail, following the Duke of York as he is thrust onto the throne after the abdication of his elder brother, Edward VIII (whose story will be one half of Madonna's upcoming "W.E."), but must overcome a stammer. Enter George's wife Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon (Helena Bonham Carter), eccentric speech therapist Lionel Logue (Geoffrey Rush) and a looming Second World War; we've got ourselves a seemingly charming Oscar baiting period drama. An obvious favorite with audiences, the film has already taken out viewer-voted awards as the Toronto, Hamptons and Aspen Film Festivals.

Our most recent review of the pic from LFF described the film as "(mostly) well-execued middlebrow crowd-pleasing fare," but criticized the script which can't decide whether it's "a personal, low key story or one on which the fate of the free world rests.""The King's Speech" also co-stars the likes of Guy Pearce, Michael Gambon, Timothy Spall and Jennifer Ehle and hits theaters November 26th.
