One film that is being touted as an award season contender is Roger Michell's "Hyde Park On Hudson," which has also unveiled a new poster. Starring Bill Murray as Franklin Roosevelt and Laura Linney as Margaret Suckley, the film follows a weekend when FDR and his wife Eleanor (Olivia Williams) went to a country retreat on the Hudson with King George VI and Queen Elizabeth (Samuel West and Olivia Colman), as Roosevelt considers whether to enter the war. But there's more; Roosevelt's cousin and rumored mistress Suckley (Linney) is there as well, sure to cause trouble and heartache. 

The film already has a December 7th release date through Focus Features, which seemingly bodes well for its prospects, with Murray's performance sure to be put under the microscope. The much-loved enigmatic actor has one Best Actor nod for "Lost In Translation" and was considered a favorite to win that night, only to be pipped by Sean Penn. Could this role be the one that takes him across the line? [via Hollywood-Elsewhere]
