Kristen Stewart Channels Princess Diana in First Poster For Spencer Film
Presenting Kristen Stewart as Princess Diana! On Wednesday, Neon unveiled the latest look at Pablo Larraín’s upcoming film Spencer with the official movie poster. After previously getting glimpses of Stewart dressed in red and sporting Diana’s iconic engagement ring, the poster shows her wearing a white gown. “SPENCER is a dive inside an emotional imagining of who Diana was at a pivotal turning point in her life,” the actress previously said in a statement.
While this is bound to be the role of a lifetime for Stewart, her initial casting in the film was met with some mixed reactions from fans. However, it seems like Stewart is working hard to prove the naysayers wrong. In an interview with InStyle in October 2020, Stewart admitted she hasn’t “been this excited about playing a part in so long.” In addition to nailing down the accent, she also added that she’s been pouring over biographies to get to know the late royal better. “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,” she said.
The film is set to focus on one pivotal weekend in Princess Diana’s life, when she spent the Christmas holiday with the royal family at the Sandringham estate in Norfolk, England, and decided to leave her husband Prince Charles (who will be played by Jack Farthing). The film is slated to be released on Nov. 5. See the latest pictures.
