Entertainment One announced today that director Oliver Hirschbiegel’s (Downfall) Princess Diana biopic Diana will be given a limited release in the U.S. on November 1st, followed by a nationwide expansion.  Naomi Watts stars as the titular figure, and the story focuses on the final two years of the late princess’ life, specifically centering on her secret affair with heart surgeon Dr. Hasnat Kahn, played by Naveen Andrews (Lost).  The film’s trailer looks to paint a rather idolatrous portrait of Diana rather than humanizing her with a warts-and-all glimpse into her life, but this could just be a product of poor marketing.  Entertainment One no doubt hopes to drum up some awards buzz for the feature, so it’ll be interesting to see how the film is received by critics.

When Diana opens on November 1st, it will be playing opposite the sci-fi pic Ender’s Game, Relativity’s animated feature Free Birds, and the ensemble comedy Last Vegas.
