A hotly-anticipated biopic of Diana, Princess Of Wales has bombed on both sides of the Atlantic after taking less than $65,000 (£43,600) in the U.S. in its opening weekend (02-03Nov13). Diana, starring Naomi Watts as the tragic British royal, failed to impress U.K. audiences and barely scraped into the top five upon its release there in September (13), netting $934,500 (£623,051) in its first weekend. Now the film has flopped on both sides of the pond after a limited release in the U.S. brought in takings of just $64,914 (£43,276) and a lowly chart position of 38. The film portrays the last years of Diana's life before her death in a car crash in Paris, France in 1997.
