While her pal Nicole Kidman is out of the way as potential competition during this awards season, it’s still far from a slam dunk for Naomi Watts to be in the mix of contenders. Early word on the forthcoming “Diana” has not been good, being described as “car crash cinema,” “terrible and tacky” and “a right royal mess” in early reviews, but the picture will soldier on, hoping that once it goes a bit wider, there will be some champions for the film.
A brand new trailer is here to try and help with that goal. Directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel (“Downfall“), the movie tells the dramatic, romantic tale of the People’s Princess and her relationship with Pakistani heart surgeon, Dr. Hasnat Khan (Naveen Andrews), but things aren’t so easy with the paparazzi on your tail. Also including details of her humanitarian work and dalliance with Dodi Fayed, we’ll have to see if the reach is beyond the grasp in this pic.
“Diana” opens on November 1st. Trailer, poster (via EW) and pics below.
