For the first time, hear Kristen Stewart’s voice as Princess Diana in the Spencer film.
PRINCESS DIANA is a film about a princess. Spencer has received its debut teaser, which has a magnificent first look at Kristen Stewart, as well as her performance as the Princess of Wales.
The first poster for the Princess Diana biopic Spencer, featuring Kristen Stewart sobbing in the Royal’s famed wedding gown, was released yesterday. Now, a teaser clip has been released, featuring some gorgeous vistas as well as the Twilight actress’s first words as Diana. According to Spencer’s summary, “Princess Diana and Prince Charles’ marriage has long since grown frigid.”
“Though rumors of affairs and a divorce swirl, peace is ordained for the Christmas festivities at the Queen’s Sandringham Estate,” the narrative reads.
“There’s shooting and hunting, as well as eating and drinking. Diana is well-versed in the game. This year, however, things will be very different.
“SPENCER is a speculative account of what may have occurred during those fateful days.”
Princess Diana’s film takes place in 1991, ten years after her marriage to Prince Charles on July 29, 1981.
Spencer’s US release date has been planned on November 5 in American movie theaters, with no date established for a UK release.
The film will have its world premiere on September 3 at the Venice International Film Festival.
Stewart co-stars with Sarah Ferguson’s Olga Hellsing and Jack Farthing’s Prince Charles.
Thomas Douglas also portrays Princess Diana’s father, Earl Spencer, who passed away in 1992.
Amy Manson plays Anne Boleyn, maybe implying a dream sequence and parallels with her role as a Royal wife.
Timothy Spall, Sean Harris, and Sally Hawkins are all cast in parts that have yet to be disclosed.
Spencer was directed by Pablo Larran, who also helmed the 2016 biopic Jackie starring Natalie Portman, and was shot in Germany earlier this year.
The Oscar-nominated film chronicled Jackie Kennedy’s time as First Lady of the United States and the days following her husband President John F. Kennedy’s assassination.
Steven Knight, one of the three creators of Who Wants To Be a Millionaire?, wrote Spencer’s screenplay.
Among his other credits are the films Dirty Pretty Things, Amazing Grace, Eastern Promises, and, most recently, Locked Down.
Given Spencer’s late-year release, it’s possible that the film, like Natalie Portman’s Jackie, could generate Oscar hype.
Spencer will be released in US theaters on November 5th, with a UK release date to be announced later.
