Just as 1998 brought us two major blockbusters about asteroids colliding with the Earth (Armageddon, Deep Impact), just as 2006 brought us two movies about Truman Capote (Capote, Infamous), and just as 2012 brought us two different takes on Snow White (Mirror Mirror, Snow White and the Huntsman), 2013 will bring us two movies about real life royalty starring acclaimed Australian actresses.

First up will be Diana (in theatres Nov. 1) starring Naomi Watts as the late Princess of Wales, then just a few weeks later we’ll have Grace of Monaco (in theatres Nov. 27) starring Watts’ best friend Nicole Kidman as Grace Kelly.

Although the screenplay for Grace of Monaco made it onto the 2011’s elite “Black List”; of Hollywood’s best un-produced screenplays, Grace Kelly’s children—Prince Albert II, Princess Caroline, and Princess Stephanie—were apparently less than thrilled with what they read. According to the Telegraph, Kelly’s children complained that several scenes were “purely fictional”; and made multiple requests for changes that were ignored.

In an interview with Le Figaro, Nicole Kidman stressed that the movie was “not a biopic or a fictionalized documentary of Grace Kelly, but only a small part of her life where she reveals her great humanity as well as her fears and weaknesses.”;

The movie is directed by French filmmaker Olivier Dahan, who previously directed Marion Cotillard to great acclaim in the Oscar-winning La Vie En Rose.
