Netflix releases first trailer for Marilyn Monroe movie starring Ana de Armas
Streaming service Netflix has released the first teaser for the film “Blonde”, dedicated to Marilyn Monroe. The studio showed footage of a new project about the most famous actress of the last century on its YouTube channel.
The main role in the film was played by Cuban-Spanish actress Ana de Armas. The film itself, based on the novel of the same name by writer Joyce Carol Oates, will tell about the events of the 1950s and 1960s. According to the creators, they sought to pay as much attention as possible to the internal state of Monroe, as well as her outlook on life.
In the teaser, Ana de Armas appears as Marilyn in front of a mirror. First, the heroine cries, after which she demonstrates her signature smile.
The Collider edition notes that this is how the creators of the project sought to show the duality in the life and behavior of Monroe: the impeccable appearance of the film star in public bordered on suffering in loneliness and the mental problems of the star.
The video also features a slow-motion version of one of Monroe’s most famous songs, Diamonds are a girl’s best friend.
The film was directed by Andrew Dominik, who has previously filmed such projects as “Once Again with Feeling”, “Casino Robbery” and others. Blonde will premiere at the 2022 Venice Film Festival and will hit Netflix this fall on September 23.
Lionsgate has released the first trailer for The Hunger Games prequel.
