Diana won’t go quietly in The Crown season 5 trailer

The real Queen Elizabeth II died earlier this year, but the fictionalized retelling of her life continues in Netflix‘s breakout hit, The Crown. The upcoming fifth season jumps ahead to the ’90s, which was a very pivotal time for the British royal family. It also throws the spotlight on Diana, Princess of Wales (Elizabeth Debicki), the woman who usurped Queen Elizabeth’s place in the hearts and minds of her subjects. The marriage of Diana and Prince Charles (Dominic West) was a storybook moment in the ’80s. But as you can see in the trailer below, the time for fairy tale endings is over. And Diana won’t go quietly.

This season, Imelda Staunton is taking over the role of Queen Elizabeth, with Jonathan Pryce as her husband, Prince Philip. And for perhaps the first time in her long reign, Elizabeth seems to be at a loss when it comes to dealing with her incredibly popular daughter-in-law. The dissolution of Charles and Diana’s marriage is further complicated by his mistress, Camilla Parker Bowles (Olivia Williams), and by Diana’s media savvy. Diana is, or was, the people’s princess. And the queen simply can’t wrap her head around that.

Jonny Lee Miller also stars this season as Prime Minister John Major, with Flora Montgomery as Norma Major, Lesley Manville as Princess Margaret, Claudia Harrison as Princess Anne, James Murray as Prince Andrew, Emma Laird Craig as Sarah, Duchess of York, Sam Woolf as Prince Edward, Senan West as Prince William, Andrew Havill as Robert Fellowes, Natascha McElhone as Penelope Knatchbull, and Khalid Abdalla as Dodi Fayed.

The Crown was created by Peter Morgan, and the fifth season will premiere on Netflix on November 9.

One place you won’t find the Steve Jobs trailer: Apple’s site
one place you wont find the steve jobs trailer apples site fassbender as

You can usually rely on the iTunes Movie Trailers site to showcase the very best upcoming releases, but there's one promotional reel you won't find on there: The first teaser for the new Steve Jobs film. The Universal Pictures flick is notably absent, so maybe Apple isn't so keen on it — or maybe it's just waiting until there's a full trailer to work with.

The debut teaser/trailer/call-it-what-you-will appeared during the finale of Mad Men last week. We got our first look at Michael Fassbender channelling the late Steve Jobs and Seth Rogen in full Steve Wozniak mode. What we didn't get was much in the way of plot details, which makes a refreshing change in an era when most trailers are happy to give away far too much.

The best live-action Disney remakes, ranked

Disney is the king of recycling its own property, with remakes of everything from Beauty and the Beast to Lady and the Tramp. Disney live-action remakes have almost become a genre unto themselves, with each one of them varying in their respective effectiveness.

The newest Disney remake, The Little Mermaid, just hit theaters on Friday, bringing yet another installment to Disney's growing library of remakes. Director Rob Marshall's The Little Mermaid will make it the third live-action remake in the past two years, joining the ranks of Robert Zemeckis' poorly-reviewed Pinocchio and David Lowery's straight-to-streaming Peter Pan & Wendy. Whether you like it or not, Disney remakes are here to stay. Even Moana, which hit theaters in 2016, is already getting a live-action remake with star Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson returning.
