Naomi Watts in Diana

In August of 1996, Her Royal Highness became Diana, Princess of Wales when her divorce from Prince Charles stripped her of the style. This was after years of media interest into the marriage, its various problems and adulteries threatened to strip her of just about everything else. Regardless, she remained an immensely beloved figure, and her life (and death in 1997) still resonate greatly today.

One echo is Downfall director Oliver Hirschbiegel‘s new film, Diana, which sees Naomi Watts playing the princess in the final two years of her life. While it chronicles her crusade against landmines, it’ll most likely be her relationship with Dr. Hasnat Khan (Naveen Andrews) and conspiracy-theory-laden demise that will cause the biggest explosions.

It’ll see theaters on August 29th (almost exactly 16 years after her death), and the new teaser trailer gives us a moving glimpse of Watts in the lead role:
