Casting Net: Naomi Watts in talks to join Matthew McConaughey in 'Sea of Trees'; Plus, Dave Franco, more

'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).

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).
