One Weekend In The Life Of Diana, Princess Of Wales


American film production and distribution company Neon, on Wednesday, tweeted the first look of Kristen Stewart as Princess Diana for the film, Spencer. 

The movie, directed by Chilean filmmaker Pablo Larrain is set for release in big screens in the United States by August, 2021, ahead of Princess Diana's 25th death anniversary in August, 2022.

The filming will be done in Germany and the United Kingdom. 

Larrain is a decorated filmmaker, having directed two Academy Awards-nominated films, No in 2012 and Jackie in 2017. He also co-produced Chilean movie A Fantastic Woman with his brother, Juan de Dios Larrain, that won the Academy Award for the Best Foreign Language film.

The first look meant principal photography of the movie has begun with other cast including Bafta nominee Timothy Spall, Oscar nominee Sally Hawkins and Sean Harris (Mission: Impossible).

Princess Diana decided to divorce Prince Charles in 1991. The pair formally divorced on August 28, 1996.

According to Hollywood Reporter, Spencer, scripted by Steven Knight is set over the weekend when Diana decides she needs to end her marriage.

"The drama takes place over three days in one of her last Christmas holidays as a member of the House of Windsor and at their Sandringham estate. The weekend in question, and the gradual implosion of the royal marriage, recently featured in the latest season of Netflix The Crown, with Diana played by Emma Corrin alongside Josh O'Connor as Prince Charles," said the report by Hollywood Reporter.

ET Online said, Stewart is channeling Diana. "Wearing a red blazer, as well a black hat with a short veil and matching shirt, Stewart looks just like the Princess of Wales, complete with her signature short, blonde hair. The outfit greatly resembles a style Diana wore in 1986 when she visited a spinal injuries unit in Sheffield, England," ET Online reported.

"Kristen Stewart has made her debut as Princess Diana," announced Variety, while EW said, "There's a new Princess Diana on the scene."

The Film Stage quoted Stewart saying: "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; Spencer. It is a harrowing effort for her to return to herself, as Diana strives to hold onto what the name Spencer means to her."

Vulture published a synopsis from a press release that said: "December 1991: The Prince and Princess of Wales’ marriage has long since grown cold. Though rumors of affairs and a divorce abound, peace is ordained for the Christmas festivities at Sandringham Estate. There’s eating and drinking, shooting and hunting. Diana knows the game. This year, things will be a whole lot different.”

#INDvENG: 5 Reasons Why India Failed Their One Square Root And Sibley Amazing Tests On Day 1

INDIA V ENGLAND - PAYTM TEST SERIES  REVIEW DAY ONE Cricket fans in India were expecting a Friday Blockbuster that'll see their Australia-triumph heroes, bowling or batting, put England on the back foot. Instead, the first day of the 4-Test series began with returning skipper Virat Kohli and his men failing to solve the square root of Joe test assigned to them. They failed even bigger when they allowed opener Dom Sibley to negotiate his way into form after struggling in Sri Lanka. Here are 5 reasons why Team India failed their test on Day 1:  1. Whose pitch is it anyway? It's a given that the host team prefers the curator of the pitch to prepare a deck that'll offer benefits to the home team from the start.

Bumrah's Cricket Rise With New RISE Worldwide Limited

  CRICKET CAPER  In Australia, much has been written about Will Pucovski and his penchant for big scores. The 22 year old, whose roots are from Czechoslovakia (his father migrated to Australia from Serbia), is a celebrity since his 62 on debut against India in the third Test match at the SCG on January 7, 2021. Team India's net bowler and aspiring senior team prospect, Kartik Tyagi continues to be apologetic after his delivery hit Pucovski's helmet during a tour match early December 2020. Tyagi's worry is genuine considering all pace bowlers are aware of Phil Hughes' fate. Pucovski recovered successfully from his concussion to hit that 62. A few days ago, he told The Grade Cricketer that facing India's ace pace star Japsrit Bumrah first ball on debut reminded him of playing a PlayStation game   during his   school days . "I actually genuinely felt like I was playing a PlayStation game , it was like International Cricket 2011 or something on PlayStation .
