Every Shocking, Tumultuous Moment From Prince Charles and Princess Diana's Marriage

17 March 2017 10:05 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Image Source: Getty / Anwar Hussein Although season one of Ryan Murphy's Feud is just barely upon us, FX has already renewed the drama for a second season, and it's going to be a doozy. Titled Feud: Charles and Diana, season two will follow the tumultuous marriage of Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana, who were married from 1981 to 1996. Diana - whose legacy still lives on in her sons, Prince William and Prince Harry - died in a tragic car accident in August 1997 with her partner, Dodi Fayed, whom she began dating after the end of her and Charles's 15-year marriage. Before their divorce, however, their troubled relationship was the subject of plenty of tabloid speculation. The Early Years On Feb. 24, 1981, Diana and Charles announced they were engaged after meeting four years earlier while Charles dated Diana's older sister, Lady Sarah McCorquodale. It seemed that their union was »

'Trainspotting' Oral History: Danny Boyle, Ewan McGregor Reflect on Cult '90s Brit Hit

16 March 2017 12:09 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

The United Kingdom, January 1996. Britpop is in full swing. Oasis' seminal sophomore album What's The Story (Morning Glory), released the previous October, has returned to the top of the U.K. charts and is helping cement the band's status in the U.S. Elsewhere, an all-girl group is preparing to launch its debut single, a song that would introduce the world to the concept of "zigazig-ha." While the current British Prime Minister John Major is commonly regarded as a rather drab, grey-suited politician, a wide-eyed 42-year-old whippersnapper by the name of Tony Blair has 10 Downing Street in his sights.

‘Feud’ Season 2 Dream Cast: 12 Actors We Need to Play Charles, Diana, the Queen and More

1 March 2017 6:44 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Princess Diana

As played by Emily Blunt?

We already know that Emily Blunt can totally kill the Princess Di look, thanks to a Halloween costume she wore in “The Five-Year Engagement.” But Blunt is also an incredibly nuanced actress who deserves a meaty lead role like this — and if the film world isn’t going to give it to her, then we happily welcome her to the world of television.

Prince Charles of Wales

As played by Ben Mendelsohn?

Just look at that side-by-side above. Just look at it. Originally from Australia, the Emmy winner is simply perfect. We did briefly consider Tom Hiddleston, but then we looked at Ben Mendelsohn again. Yeah.

Queen Elizabeth II

As played by Jessica Lange?

The grand dame of Murphy-dom may as well have a literal crown at this point. »

T2 Trainspotting Review

27 January 2017 9:05 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s been twenty years since Ewan McGregor’s Mark Renton strolled across Waterloo Bridge, £16,000 stolen from his best friends slung over his shoulder, explaining that he was going to “choose life.” Now, he’s back and it’s time to see if he lived up to his words in the awkwardly named T2 Trainspotting.

Danny Boyle’s 1996 Trainspotting was one of those rare films that perfectly encapsulated its time and place. It arrived just as John Major’s Conservative government was gasping its last fart and Tony Blair was promising us that “things could only get better,” as Britpop exploded into a frantic burst of coke-fuelled creativity and people started excitedly blathering on about ‘cool Britannia.’

Renton returns to a very different Scotland, one reverberating from its failed bid for independence from the UK, paranoid about the impact of Brexit and gradually crumbling under economic austerity. The country isn »
