eOne handling U.K., U.S. releases
The trailer starts the words “An Icon” and “Adored by Millions” before following with lightbulbs flashing and red carpets. Watts’ face isn’t seen until she turns around and smiles modestly, much like the late princess.
eOne acquired U.S rights at Cannes from Embankment Films and Ecosse Films. It plans to release “Diana,” — which focuses on the last two years of her life — late this year and is also planning major releases in the U.K., Canada and Spain.
