With the Toronto International Film Festival wrapping up, we've officially entered Awards Season. For the rest of 2011, a good chunk of new releases will be vying for Oscar gold, be it for their direction, writing, performances, or all of the above. One film most definitely aiming for Best Actor is the Erik Canuel-directed Barrymore, starring Christopher Plummer. Earlier this week we saw the first clip from the film and today TIFF has released a full trailer. Check it out below:



Based on the play by William Luce, Plummer stars as John Barrymore as he is rehearsing for a revival of his greatest work: Richard III. The movie is largely a one-man show, with Barrymore struggling to remember his part. When Luce's play was being performed on Broadway, Plummer won the Tony Award for Best Actor in a Play. The film premiered this week at TIFF, but doesn't yet have a US distributor or release date.
