‘Spencer’ Shows Kristen Stewart as Princess Diana in First Trailer
The first trailer for Spencer was released yesterday, finally giving us a real look at Kristen Stewart as Princess Diana.
Stewart was announced last year to be playing this part, and while there had been official images released before yesterday, we finally got an official first trailer in which we can actually see the performance come to life. Here’s the trailer:
Pablo Larraín, who directed Natalie Portman to an Oscar nomination back in 2016 for Jackie, is helming the project. Steven Knight (Peaky Blinders) wrote the screenplay and is an executive producer on the movie. Spencer narrates three days of the 1991 Christmas holiday, when Diana decided to end her marriage to Prince Charles (Jack Farthing). Diana died in a car crash in August of 1997.
Spencer is poised to be one of the biggest Oscar contenders of the year, and will most likely give Stewart her first Academy Award nomination. It will make the festival circuit, although it will be out of competition in both Venice and Toronto. The official premiere of the movie will happen on September 3 at the Venice Film Festival, almost exactly 24 years after Diana’s passing. On September 15, TIFF assistants will have the pleasure of watching the movie.
The cast also includes Olga Hellsing as Sarah, Duchess of York, Amy Manson as Anne Boleyn, Niklas Kohrt as Prince Andrew, as well as Sally Hawkins in an undisclosed role. NEON is distributing, and they dropped the first official poster earlier this week too:
The movie will officially debut in U.S. and U.K. theaters on November 5. International release dates have not been set yet.
Miguel Fernández is a Spanish student that has movies as his second passion in life. His favorite movie of all time is The Lord of the Rings, but he is also a huge Star Wars fan. However, fantasy movies are not his only cup of tea, as authors like Scorsese, Fincher, Kubrick or Hitchcock have been an obsession for him since he started to understand the language of filmmaking. He is that guy who will watch a black and white movie, just because it is in black and white.
