A sneak peek of Kristen Stewart‘s Spencer debuted at CinemaCon Wednesday and we can’t believe we weren’t there to see it! Thankfully, EntertainmentWeekly.com has a play-by-play so we can live vicariously through the audience at CinemaCon!
The movie is set over three days in December of 1991. Spencer will explore Princess Diana’s final Christmas holiday with the royal family when she decides her marriage to Prince Charles is irrevocably damaged. The Spencer synopsis reads, “December 1991: The Prince and Princess of Wales’ marriage has long since grown cold. Though rumors of affairs and a divorce abound, peace is ordained for the Christmas festivities at Sandringham Estate. There’s eating and drinking, shooting and hunting. Diana knows the game. But this year, things will be profoundly different.” It ends, “Spencer is an imagining of what might have happened during those few fateful days.”
Ok, so here’s the description of the scene! Princess Diana and the boys are spending the holidays with the royal family at the Sandringham estate. Per EntertainmentWeekly.com, there’s a blow-up between Prince Charles and Diana around a pool table. EW describes Kristen Stewart as Princess Diana as “nearly unrecognizable.”
They say that the argument starts over one of the sons shooting with the family. “At one point, [Princess Diana] barely contains her anger by banging on the pool table in rage,” explains EW. Apparently, the argument snowballs into deeper issues, the REAL issues. “Charles confronts her about everything from wandering the grounds alone, to how she opens curtains, and possible infidelities are implied. But, at the heart of his issues with her, is her apparent lack of desire to conform to royal standards,” reports EntertainmentWeekly.com.
“There’s two of everyone,” Charles tells Diana. “We are given tasks, you have to be able to make your body do things you hate.”
“That you hate?” she mimics. EW says that Kristen NAILS, “Diana’s whispery tone of voice and accent.” We know that she was so focused on getting that right. So cool!
“Yes, for the good of the country,” Charles says. “For the people, because they don’t want us to be people. That’s how it is. I’m sorry I thought you knew.” EW explains that the argument ends with, “Charles flicking the eight ball to [Diana], which she picks up and subsequently drops. The final shot is of the lonely eight ball on the floor.”
NEON also shared a Spencer movie trailer with CinemaCon though Kristen apparently doesn’t say much in it.
Spencer is set to be released on November 5th, only in theaters!
