Kristen Stewart Breaks Down in New Trailer for Princess Diana Movie ‘Spencer’

Spencer is even more explosive than expected, at least it seems that way in this brand-new trailer.

The studio just released the first official teaser for the upcoming movie, which stars Kristen Stewart as Princess Diana.

The trailer is barely over a minute, and since it features a slow montage of scenes, it doesn’t give too much away. Still, the clip offers a never-before-seen glimpse at what’s to come in the highly anticipated movie.

At one point, the teaser cuts to Princess Diana in the bathroom. Outside, someone says, “Ma’am? They’re waiting for you.”

It goes on to show a compilation of Princess Diana gasping for air, dancing in the palace and running through a grassy field. “They know everything,” someone says. To which Princess Di responds, “They don’t.”

Spencer takes place in the ’90s, right when Princess Diana realizes that her marriage to Prince Charles is headed for divorce. Although the story spans only three days, it highlights her heartbreaking decision to walk away from a future as queen consort.

The movie is a fictionalized account of what could have taken place during that time. “Spencer is an imagining of what might have happened during those few fateful days,” the official synopsis reads.

The trailer comes just one day after the Spencer movie poster was released to the public. The photo shows Princess Diana crouched down in a stunning white gown. Although she’s facing away from the camera, her defeated body language speaks volumes.

Spencer will hit theaters on November 5. (And yes, we’re already counting down the days.)
