diana trailer

It’s the classic story of boy meets girl, when the girl happens to be the most famous woman in the world. The full-length trailer for Oliver Hirschbiegel’s Diana is giving us a little more to work with than the teaser, showing Naomi Watts step into the role of the beloved Princess of Wales during the tumultuous time after her divorce from Prince Charles.

Rather than focusing on her time in the palace, the film will depict the princess as a single gal, navigating her first post-Charles love affair with heart surgeon Hasnat Khan (Lost’s Naveen Andrews) as the media scrutinizes her every move. And if the soaring, inspirational score is any indication, we are supposed to feel very bad about this happening and quite frankly ashamed that we didn’t let her be a normal (yet still inspirational) woman in love. How dare us?

Melodrama aside, the film looks like it pays close attention to real-life details, even enacting a sequence that morphs into a tabloid shot. How cool is that? And let’s be honest, everyone loves Princess Diana. You have that commemorative Beanie Baby with a tag protector sitting on a shelf somewhere. It will be interesting to see a film that (hopefully) shows a side of her life outside the castle walls.

Diana is in theaters October 10th.
