If you think about, aside from "The Iron Lady" starring Meryl Streep and Jason Reitman's "Young Adult," the only other film from the 2011 Oscar season we haven't seen much so far from (i.e. a trailer) is "My Week with Marilyn" starring Michelle Williams. And come Sunday, press at the New York Film Festival (including us) will finally get a chance to feast their eyes on the film.

If you think about, aside from "The Iron Lady" starring Meryl Streep and Jason Reitman's "Young Adult," the only other film from the 2011 Oscar season we haven't seen much so far from (i.e. a trailer) is "My Week with Marilyn" starring Michelle Williams. And come Sunday, press at the New York Film Festival (including us) will finally get a chance to feast their eyes on the film.

And with that screening on the near horizon, the trailer for the film has just arrived. Directed by Simon Curtis (known for TV work "Cranford," the TV movie "David Copperfield"), the drama centers on Colin Clark, an employee of Sir Laurence Olivier's, who documented the tense interaction between Olivier and Marilyn Monroe during production of "The Prince and the Showgirl" during the late 1950s. Co-starring Eddie Redmayne, who plays Colin Clark, and Kenneth Branagh, who plays Olivier, the picture also stars Dougray Scott, Judi Dench, Julia Ormond, Derek Jacobi, Dominic Cooper, Toby Jones and Emma Watson.

Oscar bait? Hmm, that's for debate and this writer isn't so sure. An interesting love story filled with a powerhouse cast? Inarguable. Our gut says Oscars are probably not in the cards by the looks of the trailer (for what that's worth, it's just a trailer), but The Weinstein Company, who is releasing the film on November 4, will surely be pushing Michelle Williams for a Best Actress nomination. It would be her third Oscar nom after "Blue Valentine" and her supporting nod for "Brokeback Mountain," and likely the third of many more nominations to come. Trailer below the jump.
