‘Diana’ Trailer: Naomi Watts Becomes the Icon
After much talk of Naomi Watts transforming herself into the late Princess Diana for a new biopic, we now have the first 'Diana' trailer. Though brief, this footage may or may not have placed us in a glass cage of emotion.
Does Watts have another Oscar nomination looming in her future? After her incredible performance in 'The Impossible,' she stars in the title role of this Princess Diana movie, which chronicles the icon's final two years. 'Diana,' centering around her relationship with Dr. Hasnat Khan and her campaign against land mines, has already been released in the UK, though eOne recently announced their pickup of the project with a plan to release it in the US later this year.
"’Diana’ will give audiences worldwide a chance to not only fall in love with the Princess all over again, but also discover a part of her life up until now kept out of the public eye," said Dylan Wiley, eOne US VP of theatrical marketing and distribution. "And only Naomi Watts could bring such a modern icon to life, through a truly beautiful and nuanced performance."
