The first poster has been released for the film Spencer, which follows three days in the life of Diana, Princess of Wales. Directed by Pablo Larraín, Spencer will see actor Kristen Stewart play the role of Diana. The poster has been unveiled a week before the biopic is scheduled to premiere at the Venice Film Festival.
In the poster, Kristen aka Diana seems to weeping into her elaborate gown. The outfit is reminiscent of the “Diaghilev” gown Diana Spencer wore on occasions such as a visit to the Royal Opera House and The Living Daylights film premiere. It was designed by David and Elizabeth Emanuel, who also created her wedding dress.
Spencer is written by Steven Knight, who has Dirty Pretty Things, Locke and Peaky Blinders to his credit. The plot reportedly revolves around Diana's decision to end her marriage to Prince Charles. Jack Farthing plays Prince Charles in the movie.
