Netflix has released the official trailer from Andrew Dominik’s, Blonde. A biopic starring Ana de Armas as Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe. Oh boy does this look interesting!
Blonde is based on the bestselling novel by Joyce Carol Oates and has been given an NC-17 rating (that’s an 18 here in the UK). We’ve been told to expect gratuitous violence, obscene sex/nudity, and harsh language.
The movie will world premiere in competition at the Venice Film Festival, so expect the customary standing ovation. To be honest, the thought of de Armas as Marilyn in nude scenes, I’m already giving de Armas a standing ovation… know what I mean lads, know what I mean?!
Blonde details the life of Marilyn Monroe, from her volatile childhood as Norma Jeane through her rise to stardom and romantic entanglements. The supporting cast includes Bobby Cannavale, Adrien Brody, Julianne Nicholson, Xavier Samuel and Evan Williams.
Some new images have also emerged of Ana de Armas as Marilyn and she is an absolute dead ringer for her. As you’ll see below, this is inspired casting and I can’t wait.
Blonde is released 28th September.
