Check out the first full trailer for Diana. This brand new international trailer shows us much more of the film about the people’s princes. The film seems to really focus on Princess Diana’s relationship with Dr. Hasnat Khan, played by Naveen Andrews (from TV’s Lost). It certainly looks as though Naomi Watts has Diana down-pat, but will the film be a little too reverential for its own good? Hopefully not. Expect this one to be a tear-jerker.

Check out an official synopsis for the film:
DIANA takes audiences into the private realm of one the world’s most iconic and inescapably public women — the Princess of Wales, Diana (two-time Oscar nominee NAOMI WATTS) — in the last two years of her meteoric life. On the occasion of the 16th anniversary of her sudden death, acclaimed director Oliver Hirschbiegel (the Oscar®-nominated Downfall) explores Diana’s final rite of passage: a secret love affair with Pakistani heart surgeon Hasnat Khan (NAVEEN ANDREWS, “Lost,” The English Patient), the human complications of which reveal the Princess’s climactic days in a compelling new light.
Hirschbiegel directs from a screenplay by award-winning playwright Stephen Jeffreys, inspired by the book Diana: Her Last Love by Kate Snell, which was in turn drawn from extensive interviews with close friends and confidantes. The result is a window into the tumultuous, change-filled period from 1995-1997, in the wake of Diana’s shattering divorce from Prince Charles, and at the moment when she stood on the cusp of adifferent life, evolving into a global humanitarian, a master of maneuvering fame and becoming her own woman.
Starring Naomi Watts, Naveen Andrews, Douglas Hodge and Juliet Stevenson.
Directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel, the German director behind Das Experiment and Downfall.
ETA: USA and AUS – 10 October, 2013.
