Here's the first teaser trailer (+ poster) for Pablo Larraín's Spencer, direct from YouTube:
The marriage of Princess Diana and Prince Charles has long since grown cold. Though rumors of affairs and a divorce abound, peace is ordained for the Christmas festivities at the Queen’s Sandringham Estate. There's eating and drinking, shooting and hunting. Diana knows the game. But this year, things will be profoundly different. Spencer is an imagining of what might have happened during those few fateful days. Spencer is directed by acclaimed Chilean filmmaker Pablo Larraín, director of the films Fuga, Tony Manero, Post Mortem, No, The Club, Neruda, Jackie (with Natalie Portman), and Ema previously, as well as other projects. The screenplay is written by Steven Knight. It's produced by Maren Ade, Jonas Dornbach, Janine Jackowski, Juan de Dios Larraín, Pablo Larraín, and Paul Webster. This is premiering at the 2021 Venice Film Festival this year, and it will play at the Toronto Film Festival as well. Neon will debut Larraín's Spencer in select US theaters starting on November 5th, 2021 this fall. First impression? Want to watch?
