Spencer is directed by Pablo Larraín of Jackie fame and is slated to release on November 5, 2021.
The first teaser trailer for Spencer is out and it deserves the undivided attention of everyone. The biopic features Kristen Stewart in the titular role of Princess Diana of Wales. The teaser video shows the later years of Diana when her marriage with Prince Charles hits the rock bottom. The movie shows an imagining of what might have happened during those few fateful days of Christmas festivities that have gone profoundly different.
The plot reveals that the marriage of Princess Diana and Prince Charles has grown cold for a long time. Although the rumours of affairs and a divorce abound, Queen has ordained peace at the Sandringham Estate for the Christmas festivities. Thus, there's eating and drinking, shooting and hunting but Diana knows the game.
Spencer also stars Jack Farthing as Prince Charles of Wales and the film is directed by Pablo Larraín of Jackie fame. The screenplay of the biopic is penned by Steven Knight while Juan de Dios Larraín, Jonas Dornbach, Paul Webster, Pablo Larraín, Janine Jackowski and Maren Ade are the producers.
Spencer will have its world premiere at the Venice International Film Festival and later at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Earlier while talking about the film, Kristen had told Deadline, "Spencer is a dive inside an emotional imagining of who Diana was at a pivotal turning point in her life. It is a physical assertion of the sum of her parts, which starts with her given name."
Stewart added that the film shows a harrowing effort for her to return to herself, as Diana strives to hold onto what the name Spencer means to her.
The film is set to have a theatrical release in the US on November 5, 2021.
