As well as the new still photos from the movie there has also been a 1 minute trailer released showing snippets from the upcoming film including scenes showing her battles with press photographers and also her relationship with Dr Hasnat Khan, who is played in the movie by Naveen Andrews.
The photos released show Naomi as Princess Di on the infamous Panorama programme where she talked about her marriage to Prince Charles. However the most striking photo is from a recreation of her photo session with Mario Testino for Vanity Fair. These photos were published just a few weeks before her death in a car crash in Paris in 1997.
Although Naomi strikes the same look as Diana in her photo she is actually wearing a completely different colour dress. In the original Vanity Fair photos Princess Di was wearing a creamy white coloured dress but Naomi is shown wearing a black sequinned dress in the movie stills.
As you would expect the photos are all very classy and stylish and not at all revealing. This is a change from some of Naomi’s earlier movies as she has been known to be either topless or completely nude in many of her earlier film roles. These have included movies such as Mother and Child, 21 Grams, Ellie Parker and her role in the classic 2001 David Lynch movie Mulholland Drive.
The main theme of the new biopic deals with Princess Di’s relationship with Dr Hasnat Khan, the highly respected heart and lung surgeon. During her lifetime Diana managed to keep the relationship out of the press but Khan was always frightened that the press intrusion would make his life hell.
Diana was said to have revealed to her friends that the Dr was the real love of her life.
The new Diana movie, directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel (Downfall), is due to hit UK cinemas 20 September this year although there is still no date given yet for a US release.
