The Weinstein Company this week released a second, longer trailer for a star-studded movie set and filmed in Green Country, as it premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).

"August: Osage County," boasts an ensemble cast headed by Meryl Streep as the pill-popping, viciously "truth-telling" Violet Weston, and rounded out by the likes of Julia Roberts, Chris Cooper, Margo Martindale, Juliette Lewis, Benedict Cumberbatch and Ewan McGregor.

The film, produced by George Clooney and Grant Heslov and directed by John Wells, of "ER" and "West Wing" fame, was shot in Washington and Osage Counties, with the bulk of the film taking place inside an old home in Boulanger. Oklahoma's Own, Tony award-winning Tracy Letts, adapted the screenplay from his Broadway play of the same name.

At a press conference at TIFF, Roberts said her favorite scene was one filmed in downtown Pawhuska, some of which is seen in the new trailer.

"Even though there were a lot of scenes that we are all in together, my favorite is the bus station scene with Benedict [Cumberbatch] and Chris [Cooper]. It was my favorite scene in the play and it was my favorite scene when I read the screenplay. To watch the way they did that in the film, it was heartbreaking. I have too much makeup on right now to keep talking about that scene," Roberts said.

The film hits theaters on Christmas Day.
