Ana de Armas stuns as Marilyn Monroe in 'Blonde' trailer
The Knives Out actor left everyone surprised with her astonishing resemblance to Marilyn Monroe in Blonde’s trailer
Netflix has debuted the first evocative footage from Andrew Dominik's Blonde. The official Blonde synopsis from Netflix reads: "(The film) boldly reimagines the life of one of Hollywood's most enduring icons, Marilyn Monroe. From her volatile childhood as Norma Jeane, through her rise to stardom and romantic entanglements, 'Blonde' blurs the lines of fact and fiction to explore the widening split between her public and private selves (sic)."
The movie, based on the bestselling novel by Joyce Carol Oates of the same name, is notable for its NC-17 rating, reported Variety. The supporting cast includes Bobby Cannavale, Adrien Brody, Julianne Nicholson, Xavier Samuel and Evan Williams.
"Andrew's ambitions were very clear from the start – to present a version of Marilyn Monroe's life through her lens (sic)." de Armas recently told Netflix Queue.
"He wanted the world to experience what it actually felt like to not only be Marilyn, but also Norma Jeane. I found that to be the most daring, unapologetic, and feminist take on her story that I had ever seen (sic)."
"We worked on this film for hours, every single day for almost a year (sic)." de Armas added.
"I read Joyce's novel, studied hundreds of photographs, videos, audio recordings, films -- anything I could get my hands on. Every scene is inspired by an existing photograph. We'd pore over every detail in the photo and debate what was happening in it (sic)." the actor said.
"The first question was always, 'What was Norma Jeane feeling here?' We wanted to tell the human side of her story. Fame is what made Marilyn the most visible person in the world, but it also made Norma the most invisible."
Blonde releases globally on Netflix on September 23, 2022.
