'Diana' clip: The Princess and the heart surgeon -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Diana-exclusive-clip.jpg

How does an ordinary guy ask out a Princess?

Movies love to posit scenarios where that might happen. Most of the time it’s just a storytelling fantasy (à la Roman Holiday), but in the new Princess Diana biopic (out Nov. 1), we actually get a chance to see an interpretation of how the late Princess of Wales met Dr. Hasnat Khan, the heart surgeon she fell in love with in the final years of her life.

Check out the exclusive clip of their second meeting below, when Khan (played by Lost‘s Naveen Andrews) gets up the nerve to ask out Diana (Naomi Watts).

'Diana' poster recreates an iconic, lonely image -- EXCLUSIVE

DIANA-official-poster.jpg

Diana lived her life in front of the cameras.

The late Princess of Wales was easily one of the most visible figures of the 20th century, so it seems fitting that the first poster for Diana, starring Naomi Watts, accentuates the dichotomy of her strange public/private life in one image. The shot of Diana in the Tiffany blue swimsuit sitting at the edge of that diving board on the yacht is immediately identifiable as her. But, it was also a paparazzi photo. Somehow a moment of repose captured by an uninvited photographer became one of the most iconic images of her short life.

Casting Net: Tom Hiddleston to conquer 'Crimson Peak'; Plus, Jennifer Lopez, Naomi Watts, more

• We might still be lamenting the fact that Tom Hiddleston will not be appearing in The Avengers: Age of Ultron as the tormented Loki, but at least it frees him up to work with some other actors. Hiddleston has signed on to replace his War Horse co-star Benedict Cumberbatch in Guillermo del Toro’s thriller Crimson Peak, alongside Jessica Chastain, Mia Wasikowska, and Charlie Hunnam. [THR]

The full international trailer for Diana, starring Naomi Watts as the late princess, has arrived.

The film will center on the last years of Princess Diana’s life, and showcase her romance with Dr. Hasnat Khan (Naveen Andrews). Fans of the princess will note scenes from the trailer that feature some of her iconic moments in the public eye, including her work to eradicate military landmines juxtaposed against the love affair that captured tabloid attention for months. In real life, Diana moved on from Khan and had begun dating Dodi Fayed, with whom she died in the 1997 car crash. It’s not clear when exactly the timeframe of the picture will end.

The biopic about the “people’s princess” was directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel and will hit theaters in the U.S. Oct. 10. READ FULL STORY

Naomi Watts and Robin Wright play two mothers who 'Adore' their sons -- EXCLUSIVE POSTER

adore

With a title like Adore, this movie with Naomi Watts and Robin Wright might be about anything. But when it premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, it was known by another, much more provocative title, Two Mothers, that boldly announced its raison d’être. Watts and Wright play lifelong best friends who grow up and raise children near each other on an Australian beachfront paradise. Their hunky sons (Xavier Samuel and James Frecheville) are best friends too, spending their idle summer days on surfboards and working on their tans. They’re not your typical momma’s boys… well, until they romantically pair up with each other’s mother.

This is not a Saturday Night Live, Lonely Island sketch; it’s a very sensual, very French drama from director Anne Fontaine (Coco Before Channel) and screenwriter Christopher Hampton (Dangerous Liaisons) that is based on a 2003 novella from an 85-year-old grandmother, British author Doris Lessing. “I thought it was powerful that there was no answer at the end,” Fontaine said in January. “Each one can think what they want to think. No morality.”

Click below for an exclusive new poster for the movie, which will open in theaters and VOD on Sept. 6. READ FULL STORY

Naomi Watts stars as the 'People's Princess' in 'Diana' trailer -- VIDEO

Princess Diana was such a beloved icon that in the new trailer for the eponymous movie, Diana, you don’t even see Naomi Watts’ face until the clip is halfway finished. There’s not even any dialogue. Instead, the video hopes to tap into that deep reservoir of goodwill  — and obsession — that made Diana “the most famous woman in the world.” Cue shaking hands, flashing lightbulbs, and glamorous red carpets… until Watts finally turns around and flashes that soft, demure smile that Diana wore at public events.

The movie, directed by Olivier Hirschbiegel (Downfall) focuses on the last two years of Diana’s life, when she was deeply involved in the effort to eradicate military landmines and involved in a romantic relationship with Dr. Hasnat Khan (Naveen Andrews).

'The Impossible' Blu-ray: Tom Holland talks about tsunamis, Shakespeare, and Ben Kenobi -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Naomi Watts was nominated for an Academy Award for her role in The Impossible, and Ewan McGregor starred as the husband and father who refused to quit looking for his missing family in the devastating aftermath of the 2004 tsunami. But the emotional core of the heartrending disaster film was Tom Holland, the 13-year old English actor who played their oldest son Lucas. Nearly swept away by the wave, Lucas clings to life among the dangerous flotsam and survives to help his injured mother to safety. Never striking a false note as his character veers between terror, hopelessness, and bravery, Holland delivers a performance reminiscent of Christian Bale in Empire of the Sun. The first-time movie actor, who’d starred in the London stage production of Billy Elliot, won several newcomer acting awards for his role in The Impossible, including a Breakthrough Award from the National Board of Review.

Now 16, Holland is poised to star in three upcoming high-profile movies in the next year. But speaking to EW just after coming home from school in London, it’s clear he’s in no rush to hurry matters.

Click below for a Q&A with the precocious actor, plus an exclusive video clip from The Impossible Blu-ray, which is available today. READ FULL STORY

Casting Net: James Franco, Omar Sy are 'Good People'; Plus Anna Kendrick, Tom Hiddleston, more

• James Franco, Omar Sy (the breakout star of The Intouchables), and Kate Hudson are set to star in the thriller Good People. Franco has been circling the project since late November 2012. Based on Marcus Sakey’s 2009 novel, the story is about a young couple burdened with crippling debt. They think they’ve found an out when their downstairs neighbor dies and leaves $370,000 in cash just sitting around. Suddenly they begin to encounter all sorts of unsavory characters. Danish director Henrik Genz will be making his English-language debut with the film. The Millennium Films project is expected to begin production in London at the end of May. The original story, like most of Sakey’s novels, was set in Chicago. [Deadline]

Casting Net: Emma Stone, Michael Keaton, and Zach Galifianakis to star in comedy; Plus Christina Hendricks, Vin Diesel

21 Grams director Alejandro González Iñárritu is trying his hand at comedy, and he’s enlisted the help of a stellar cast, including Emma Stone, Zach Galifianakis, Michael Keaton, and Naomi Watts (don’t forget I Heart Huckabees!) to star in his upcoming feature Birdman. The film will follow a once-great actor best known for portraying a superhero (a little close to home for Keaton), who is trying to relaunch his career with a Broadway play. It will apparently take place over three days in one location. Stone will play Keaton’s troubled daughter, Galifianakis will be the play’s producer, and Watts will portray an actress. [THR]

Mad Men’s Christina Hendricks is set to star as Charlotte Douglas in the film adaptation of Joan Didion’s A Book of Common Prayer, directed by Campbell Scott (Off the Map). We’re excited to see Hendricks taking on a complex, serious leading film role, and hope the adaptation does justice to Didion’s book. In addition to Mad Men, returning April 7 on AMC, Hendricks can also be seen in Sally Potter’s Ginger & Rosa (in limited release March 15). [Variety]

Vin Diesel is in talks to star in The Last Witch Hunter – a 2010 Black List script about a witch hunter who partners with a witch to help save New York from evil. Breck Eisner (The Crazies, and also, Michael Eisner’s son) will direct. It sounds silly, but it was a Black List script, and Hansel and Gretel aren’t mentioned, so maybe there’s potential. Diesel’s next movie is Fast & Furious 6, out May 24. [Deadline]
