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
