The first full-length international trailer for “Diana,” the upcoming biopic depicting the princess’ affair with a surgeon, debuted online today, perhaps giving us a preview of the Naomi Watts performance that might bring her back to the Academy Awards.
“Diana” is directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel, and that’s worth noting because most of the internet is familiar with just one scene from any of his movies. (Side note: You should probably watch the entire thing.)
The biopic recounts the affair that captured tabloid headlines for months. As we see in the trailer, Diana meets Dr. Hasnat Khan, a surgeon played by— SAYID?!?!
Sorry. I had to get that out of my system. Check out the trailer after the jump!
The trailer comes to us via The Daily Telegraph, and “Diana” is set for release in Jolly Old England on October 10, but there’s no US release date set yet, so keep an eye out for that.
Thanks to The Film Stage for the heads up!
