Teaser trailer for Diana, starring Naomi Watts: watch now

The legend is never the whole story

Diana has released a first teaser trailer online, and you can watch it here.

Starring Naomi Watts in the title role as Diana, Princess of Wales, the film sharpens its focus on the period of her life that followed her divorce from Prince Charles, rather than trying to cram her entire life story into the running time.

The film will also zoom in on her relationships with Dr Hasnat Khan (Naveen Andrews) and Dodi Fayed (Cas Anvar).

Clocking in at a brief one-minute in length, the teaser doesn’t give a particularly revealing idea of what to expect from Watts’ performance (we don’t even hear her deliver a line of dialogue), but it looks like it’ll capture various elements from her public and private affairs.

Watch the Diana trailer online now:

We’re kinda hoping that slightly overbearing score isn’t going to set the syrupy tone for the film, but regardless, all eyes will be on Watts come awards season. Is it finally time for her take home that Oscar?

Directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel (Downfall, The Invasion), Diana will open in the UK on 20 September 2013.
