The US trailer and art for Diana were released this week (the film opens stateside November 1st), but Americans aren’t necessarily pre-purchasing tickets to the cinema (when in Rome).

Rotten Tomatoes gave the film a 3% rating after it opened in the UK September 5th, which critics more or less supported in their reviews:

“The Queen of Hearts has been recast as a sad-sack singleton that even Bridget Jones would cross the street to avoid.” – David Edwards, Daily Mirror

“Watts employs a number of iconic head tilts, hairdos and stick-on noses, but fights a losing battle against a film which has neither backbone nor teeth, swerving drearily between hagiography (‘I just want to help people!’) and hapless cod romance, interspersed with hokey landmine photo-ops and scenic cultural detours through Lahore.” -Mark Kermode, The Guardian

“It never succeeds in being moving, or even involving. It’s not even enjoyably bad.” – Christopher Tookey, Daily Mail

“A special class of awul.” -Tim Robey, Telegraph

Ok, then!

Diana Movie Naomi Watts Blue Sapphires

Today, Huffington Post showed a poster for the upcoming biopic, Diana, starring Naomi Watts as the late Princess of Wales (1961-1997).

The international poster (a US one has not yet been released) shows Watts wearing a dress similar to the Jacques Azagury-designed silk Georgette shift Diana wore to the Royal Albert Hall in June 1997. Chopard is the film’s official jeweler.

Diana, opening in the UK this September (no US release date has been announced), follows the princess’s last two years, specifically her romance with heart surgeon Hasnat Khan.
