She is a very good actress. Naveen Andrews was my favorite on LOST so I'm looking forward to this film.

I have to admit, I'm curious about this too. Does anyone know when it's going to be released?

I just watched the trailer. Naomi Watts may be a good actress, but the trailer didn't make me feel that it is Diana and her life she is playing. Naomi is too short to play Diana, she gives totally wrong impression. Or at least I got the impression that Naomi is much shorter than Diana, and the height was one striking thing in Diana.

I'm thinking the same thing. It's interesting that Naomi Watt's good friend, fellow Aussie Nicole Kidman, is playing Princess Grace in an upcoming movie. Height-wise, I think they should have swapped roles.

I think it's very interesting that Naomi and Nicole was given the chance to portray these iconic women. Two women that pretty much captivated the world for years and both met their ends so tragically.

I won't go see the film but will wait for the DVD.

I saw the trailer yesterday on the news and I agree; Naomi looked shorter than Diana. Whilst I was watching the trailer on the news; they showed you a clip of the film and a clip of Diana, and their voices did sound similar IMO.

I think this movie is going to be crap. Going by the trailer, it doesn't look promising. More of a tv-movie.

I most likely will wait and watch this one when it does come on TV. I don't think it'll take too long. Its just not a topic I believe that will have people flocking to the theaters to see.

Maybe they will pull good numbers in the opening weekend. Diana, after so many years, is still able to captivate. The movie itself seems to look low-budget though. I can't really put my finger on it.

To me the dresses and jewelry makes it hard to believe it is Diana, Princess of Wales. The height and the actress' thinner hair are the other things that show this was low budget.

BTW, only her relatives know Diana's life those last two years. I just hope it is written in the Princess' favor, because I have had enough of the negative to last my lifetime.

It looks like a low-budget Lifetime movie to me, and those wigs are just awful on Naomi.

Amen to this. Throughout the whole trailer I got a made-for-television feel from it. It looks pretty **** to me, but again, I've always been against the making of this film so I guess I'm biased.

First I will say I am tired of movies about Diana, it is just retelling the same story over again. I personally have not seen a good one since Diana Her True Story.
Second Watts is far to pretty to play Diana. With that being said Nicole isn't pretty enough for Grace; she and Naomi should have traded roles.

I think actress Serena Scott Thomas ( young sister of actress Kristin Scott Thomas) played Diana the best in "Diana: Her True Story" a 1993 film. I agree with XeniaCasarahi. I haven't seen a good movie since that film. Most recently, Serena has played Carole Middleton in the 2011 movie, "William & Kate."

I think it's great that Naomi got a chance to portray an iconic figure but I've grown tired of these movies.

Sigh.

Methinks I must write, direct and produce a movie about Diana. No more of this saccharin drivel.

I'll get Kate Blanchett to play Diana. I need someone with range and ability.

Daniel Day Lewis can play Charles.

If you write an unbiased,factual movie about Diana....lots and lots people will be up in arms and writing you hate mail. They want the drippy, Lifetime version of her life.

Be warned, those actors would not only chew up the scenery but also each other. Much like the Charles/Diana household......

I vote for Betty White to play the part of the Queen Mum.
