Diana the new film about the “people’s Princess” lands a new international trailer. Naomi Watts plays Princess Diana.
In this new trailer for Oliver Hirschbiegel’s film in which the late royal’s alleged romance with Pakistani heart surgeon Hasnat Khan is examined, we see a bit more of the plot that the images shown on the previous trailer.
Naomi Watts is actually heard speaking this time, unlike the earlier clip, which only had background music to go along with the images included.
The trailer shows how Diana and Hasnat met, when she visited the hospital in which he worked and how as time goes by they keep seeing each other.
Naomi Watts is seen wearing a dark-hair wig to go in public and meet with her lover. In part of the footage, a guilty Princess Diana tells Hasnat Khan that people think she “screwed up”.
The film will premiere at the Zurich Film Festival, with no other announcements from either the Toronto Film Festival or the New York Film Festival.
Diana follows the last two years of the Princess’ life, while she steps away from the shadows of the Palace and becomes her own person. She also starts the romance with Dr. Khan, which lasted between 1995 and 1997.
The Princess was also very involved in several charities, one of which was the Halo Trust, and she visited Angola a few weeks before her death. Her son, Prince Harry, honored Diana with a trip of his own to the African country last week.
As her relationship with Khan deteriorates because of his inability to deal with the attention, Diana starts a relationship with Dodi al-Fayed.
The last part of the clip shows the now famous security camera footage of the couple and their driver getting into an elevator at their Paris hotel before setting out on the trip that would kill them both.
Naomi Watts’ Diana also stars Naveen Andres as Hasnat Khan and Douglas Hodge as Paul Burell, Diana’s butler.
