Back in September, a teaser for Grace of Monaco gave a stunning first look at Kidman in the role of Grace Kelly.

Acclaimed actor Frank Langella narrates the short clip as scenes show the actress baring a strong resemblance to the former Hollywood star who went on to become royalty. The film follows Kelly's crisis of marriage and identity, during a political dispute between Monaco's Prince Rainier III and France's Charles De Gaulle, as well as a looming French invasion of Monaco in the early 1960s.

Kidman also stars alongside Tim Roth, who co-stars as Prince Rainer III.
