The New Trailer For Kristen Stewart’s Princess Diana Movie Is More Intense Than ‘The Crown’


The first full trailer for Spencer just dropped—and the Princess Diana biopic starring Kristen Stewart looks every bit as intense as we imagined it would.

For a bit of context before going into the new video, Spencer focuses on one weekend in December 1991 as Princess Diana (Stewart) grapples with her decision to leave her husband, Prince Charles (Jack Farthing) over a three-day Christmas holiday with the entire royal family. As the film’s official description reads, “The Prince and Princess of Wales’s marriage has long since grown cold. Though rumors of affairs and a divorce abound, peace is ordained for the Christmas festivities at Sandringham estate. There’s eating and drinking, shooting, and hunting. Diana knows the game. This year, things will be a whole lot different.”

While we got a glimpse at Stewart’s Diana—and her impeccable wardrobe—in a few promotional photos, as well as the brief teaser trailer that dropped in late August, this new footage introduces young Prince William (Jack Nielen) and Prince Harry (Freddie Spry) and puts the tensions between Princess Diana and her in-laws on full display.

“You have to be able to do things you hate,” Charles tells Diana as they stand on opposite sides of a pool table. “There has to be two of you: the real one and the one they take pictures of.” While we don’t hear Diana’s direct response, we do see a small inkling of rage bubble to the surface. At the end of the trailer, she asks, “Will they kill me, do you think?”

If the small amount of footage we’ve seen, coupled with the film’s glowing early reviews, Kristen Stewart could be looking at her first Academy Award. As one critic wrote for The Hollywood Reporter, “For those of us who have admired the talents of Kristen Stewart since she was not yet even a teenager, it is a joy to be able to share that the 31-year-old’s portrayal of Princess Diana in Pablo Larrain’s Spencer is truly the fulfillment of her tremendous promise and will almost certainly bring her the first Oscar nomination of her career.”

If you don’t want to miss it, Spencer hits theaters on November 5.
