While celebrities may always bemoan the lack of privacy, none of them have lived with the kind of scrutiny that faced Diana, Princess Of Wales. A marriage into the royal family turned into a lifetime in the tabloids, with a tragic ending that set the world mourning, and paparazzi on pause... for a few days anyway. And now the story of her last great love is hitting the big screen in what could be an awards season contender.

While celebrities may always bemoan the lack of privacy, none of them have lived with the kind of scrutiny that faced Diana, Princess Of Wales. A marriage into the royal family turned into a lifetime in the tabloids, with a tragic ending that set the world mourning, and paparazzi on pause... for a few days anyway. And now the story of her last great love is hitting the big screen in what could be an awards season contender.

A new, full international trailer has dropped for the movie, showing much, much more of the movie that will be arriving later this year. Naomi Watts leads the pic as the Princess, who suddenly finds her falling Dr. Hasnat Khan (Naveen Andrews), a Pakistani heart surgeon, who seems nonplussed by who she is. Instead, he simply loves her regardless of her title, and it's a union that eventually becomes frayed by the clicking cameras at their door. Directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel ("Downfall"), it looks like fairly standard biopic territory, though the performances seem to be the key here.

Still no official U.S. release date for this one, but we presume it's coming later this year via eOne (though maybe they'll wait to see how it does with critics on the fall festival circuit first). [Vlicious!]
