A Royal Replica! Watch Kristen Stewart Embody Princess Diana In Teaser Trailer For 'Spencer' Biopic
After months of anticipation, a trailer for the Princess Diana biopic Spencer has been released.
Directed by Pablo Larraín, the film depicts the Princess of Wales (played by Twilight's Kristen Stewart) over three stressful days as she decides to end her troubled marriage to Prince Charles (Jack Farthing).
The minute-long video begins by showing that the Sandringham estate is preparing for Christmas. As décor goes up and meals are set on the table, the scene switches to Stewart as Diana, who seems to have isolated herself as she struggles to get a grip on her emotions.
That's followed up by the mother-of-two sitting with her family for a portrait and then being bombarded by photographers the second she steps outside.

A montage of scenes then flash across the screen, which show Diana at her highs and lows: at one point, she's dancing freely in a regal dress, while the next moment she's laying down in bed and being consoled.
The trailer concludes with Diana, clad in a red and black varsity jacket, sitting next to a woman who declares, "They know everything," to which the royal replies, "They don't."

The movie hits theaters on November 5, and NEON pictures has already released an official description.
"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," the synopsis reads. "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."
Stewart revealed that she did plenty of prep work before filming started.
"The accent is intimidating as all hell because people know that voice, and it's so, so distinct and particular," the actress confessed. "I'm working on it now and already have my dialect coach. It's one of the saddest stories to exist ever, and I don't want to just play Diana — I want to know her implicitly."
