After teasing us with some stunning images and one terrific poster, Neon has dropped the first teaser trailer for “Spencer”, their much-anticipated Diana Princess of Wales biography. Directed by Pablo Larraín (“Jackie”) from a script by Steven Knight, “Spencer” is set to have its big premiere next week at the Venice Film Festival. The rest of us will have to wait a while longer, but Neon has given us a captivating first look to tide us over.
“Spencer” sees Kristen Stewart playing Diana and up until now all we have seen were the eerily similar appearance she shared with the late Princess. Now we get to see bites from the actual movie and it looks like Larraín is really going for it. The production design and costumes really stand out, but it all comes back to Stewart. Many are predicting a possible Oscar nomination which doesn’t seem out of the question. Hopefully “Spencer” delivers on the enormous promise it has shown so far.
“Spencer” lands in theaters November 5th. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
