Olivier Dahan’s award-winning biopic about French chanteuse Édith Piaf was lauded for Marion Cotillard’s astonishing performance. The director has set Nicole Kidman center stage for his next biographical work featuring a riveting woman in Grace of Monaco, and a full trailer for the film has finally arrived. Kidman is no stranger to real-life inspired stories, having played photographer of “freaks" Diane Arbus in Steven Shainberg’s Fur. Now, Kidman dons a tiara and ball gown to star as the early thirtysomething actress turned princess who captured the heart of a nation. Dahan’s movie takes place during the early 1960s when Grace Kelly married Monaco’s Prince Rainier III, played by a devilish Tim Roth...

This new trailer for Olivier Dahan's Grace of Monaco highlights the fact that not every princess who finds her prince lives happily ever after. The U.K. cut goes fairly deep into the complications that plague the life of Princess Grace Kelly (Nicole Kidman). Set six years after her wedding and departure from the Hollywood lights, Grace must reconcile a desire to return to the big screen while navigating a political minefield. The trailer gives rather more time to her own internal conflicts than the government-level threats, but it's a solid introduction to the film at any rate. Also starring Paz Vega, Tim Roth, Frank Langella, Parker Posey, Milo Ventimiglia, and Derek Jacobi, Grace of Monaco will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival this May. Hit the jump to watch the new U.K. trailer. Check out the new U.K. trailer for Grace of Monaco below: Synopsis: Set »

Nicole Kidman is pure royalty in the upcoming film Grace of Monaco. The 46-year-old effortlessly portrays Grace Kelly in the drama biopic, which also stars Tim Roth as Prince Rainier III and Frank Langella. This U.K. trailer features an emotional Kidman, who looks just like the iconic Alfred Hitchcock muse in her beautiful fashions, expressing her sadness for abandoning her booming Hollywood career to become a princess. "Some of you ask why did I leave Hollywood," Kidman declares with sadness in her voice. "Well, I left because, because I fell in love with a charming prince." The Olivier Dahan-directed film is set against the picturesque backdrop of 1962 and depicts Kelly's »
Nicole Kidman embodies silver screen icon Grace Kelly as she leaves her life as an actress behind in the new international trailer for Grace of Monaco. The Weinstein Company still hasn't set a domestic release date yet, after pushing the film from its November 2013 release date last year. Director Olivier Dahan's drama explores Grace Kelly's marriage to Monaco's Prince Ranier III, and how she helped solve a dispute over French tax laws in the 1960s, but as we can see in this trailer, the actress still pines for her former profession, with a reference to Alfred Hitchcock offering her the lead role in Marnie in 1962. In addition, we have the new poster for this drama, co-starring Milo Ventimiglia, Tim Roth, Parker Posey, Paz Vega and Frank Langella.

Grace of Monaco was originally going to be one of the Weinsteins’ year-end releases in 2013 (potentially snagging lead Nicole Kidman some awards season love in the process), but the prestigious biopic ended up being delayed until 2014; it’s currently without an official U.S. release date, but is set to serve as the opening night feature at the Cannes Film Festival this May.
Arash Amel’s (Erased) Grace of Monaco screenplay zeroes in on Lady Kelly’s life during the 1960s, when her marriage to Prince Rainier III (Tim Roth) came under heavy pressure, between her pondering a return to acting in Hollywood fare and – on the bigger playing field of global politics – the looming threat of a potential Monaco invasion, as the result of a dispute between Kelly’s husband and France’s president at the time, Charles De ...

Some of previous trailers for the upcoming film Grace of Monaco have focused more on how luminous Nicole Kidman can look in her title role than little things like plot and characterization. Thankfully, we now have a more complete picture of the film with the arrival of the latest piece of promotional footage.
The trailer showcases Kidman’s performance as Grace Kelly, the Hollywood star who became a Princess when she married Prince Rainier III of Monaco (Tim Roth). The film will focus primarily on the period when the principality of Monaco was involved in a political dispute with France, and the expectations that Grace has some problems living up to. We get to see Princess Grace’s less than fairy tale existence, as she fights with her Prince over a possible return to Hollywood and grapples with the difficulties of being royalty.

"Grace of Monaco" was tipped to be a strong Oscar contender in 2013 but the Weinstein Company delayed its release till this spring. Watch the first trailer for the film below. The biopic stars Oscar winner Nicole Kidman as Grace Kelly, who left Hollywood behind in 1956 at the height of her career to marry Prince Rainier of Monaco. The film follows the pair during a crisis in their marriage in the early 1960s when the prince (played by Oscar nominee Tim Roth, "Rob Roy") could lose his land to France. This certainly looks like the perfect vehicle for Kidman to nab her second Best Actress trophy -- it’s a biopic that combines Old Hollywood lore with European royalty. -Break- She would be the second person in history to win for portraying a real-life Oscar winner; Cate Blanchett prevailed in the supporting race in 2004 for playing four-time Best Actress champ Katharine Hepburn in “The Aviator. »

Roald Dahl has often been referred to as one of the greatest storytellers for children in the 20th century. His books have delighted children for generations, with their dark and inventive sense of humour and their eccentric, dastardly adult characters.
Likewise, his written work for adults has just as much wit and creativity, and over the years, he also worked as a screenwriter on a number of projects, including TV work on Alfred Hitchcock Presents and his own anthology series, Roald Dahl's Tales Of The Unexpected.
Given how it doesn't even take the likes of J.K. Rowling and Stephanie Meyer five years to have their popular works adapted by Hollywood, there has inevitably been an extensive crossover between Dahl's written work and the big screen. »
