New International Trailer for 'Diana' Focuses on the Secret Romance

While the previous trailers for Oliver Hirschbiegel's romantic biopic Diana about the late Princess of Wales mostly focused on the icon of the people's princess, a new international trailer goes full speed for love. Naomi Watts plays the title royal as she attempts to find happiness in a secret love affair with Dr. Hasnat Kahn (Naveen Andrews), who was her secret lover for two years before their relationship was revealed in 2008. From disguising herself so she can go out in public to get a date with the doctor to the struggling relationship because of Diana's fame, this all feels a little artificial in this film package, but it's all based on her real story. Hopefully the film is a little less melodramatic than the trailers indicate. Watch!

Here's the new international trailer for Oliver Hirschbiegel's Diana via Bleeding Cool:

Diana, originally Caught in Flight, is directed by German filmmaker Oliver Hirschbiegel (The Experiment, Downfall, The Invasion) described as the "love story between a princess locked in a tower and an ordinary man." The script from Stephen Jeffreys (The Libertine) is said to focus on Diana's secret two-year love affair in the mid-1990s with heart surgeon Dr. Hasnat Kahn that wasn't revealed until 2008. The cast includes Naveen Andrews as Dr. Khan and the film arrives internationally this October, and Entertainment One will release Diana in the United States, though there's still no official date set here yet. Stay tuned for updates
