This is Diana’s story as you’ve never seen it before. The first full trailer for the Naomi Watts-led biopic has been released and it’s packed full of violin strings, covert romantic liaisons and four – yes, four – mobile phones.
Downfall director Oliver Hirschbiegel’s interpretation of Diana’s story chooses to focus on a small portion of her life in the spotlight, eschewing her high profile dalliances with James Hewitt and Dodi Fayed in favour of her secretive relationship with Pakistani heart surgeon Hasnat Khan (played by Lost’s Naveen Andrews).
Hirschbiegel appears to have largely avoided Diana’s final days, with Fayed making only a brief appearance as the late princess grapples with the aftermath of the exposure of her relationship with Khan.
Diana also stars Douglas Hodge, Geraldine James and Juliet Stephenson and opens in UK cinemas on 20 September. Watch the trailer below:
