The Queen Poster, Trailer and Synopsis
The Queen, an intimate revealing and often humorous portrait of the British royal family in crisis immediately following the death of Princess Diana, stars Helen Mirren as Queen Elizabeth II, James Cromwell as Prince Phillip and Michael Sheen as Tony Blair. The film is written by award-winner Peter Morgan and is produced by Andy Harries, Christine Langan and Tracey Seaward, and executive produced by Francois Ivernel, Cameron McCracken and Scott Rudin.

Though the synopsis says the film is often humorous, the trailer makes the film seem all too serious. I didn't even realize that there were that many people watching the actions of the aged royal family anymore. You know, with the two boys creating Paris Hilton-size press.
The Queen opens to a limited release on September 30th.
