Blonde has been in development since 2010, and now the Marilyn Monroe biopic is about to premiere. Netflix has released the full trailer for the biopic starring Ana de Armas. You can watch the video below:

Earlier, director Andrew Dominik ( Once More With Feeling ) touched on the sensitive topics that  “Blonde” will touch on, responding that his work might offend some.

The film is based on the novel of the same name by Joyce Carol Oates, inspired by the life of an actress and singer. Directed by Andrew Dominic, best known for The Assassination of Jesse James by the Cowardly Robert Ford and The Casino Heist.

Evidently, a smooth rendition of “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend” carols play over the entirety of the teaser, creating the ideal balance of the unsettling and enchanting atmosphere. In the opening scene of the preview, which takes place during dinner with Marilyn, Bobby Cannavale, who plays the role of “The Ex-Athlete,” asks the straightforward question, “How did you get your start?”

She was never given a chance to begin, Marilyn Monroe claimed:

Marilyn claims that she was never given a chance to begin. She was surprised when fame knocked on her door, and it hasn’t stopped following her ever since.

“I guess I was found,” she says between her sobs. “I was discovered.” “I am aware that you are meant to acclimate to it. But I just can’t. I’ve played Marilyn Monroe, Marilyn Monroe, and Marilyn Monroe. I simply cannot bring myself to act out another scene as Marilyn Monroe. Marilyn doesn’t exist.”

The teaser makes it abundantly clear that the actress is unhappy with her life since it shows her appearing tired and awkward when filming legendary scenes, such as the subway grate scene from The Seven Year Itch and other similar scenes from other movies. As oppressive as the sparkling dresses can be, the cameras are even worse. In a particularly wonderful sequence, Marilyn looks at herself in the mirror and laughs, even though she isn’t actually laughing. The girl in the mirror is the only one who is laughing; her true self is standing perfectly still on the other side.

Ana de Armas seems to be presenting a performance that is truly a tour-de-force, which was to be expected after the success of songs like “Knives Out” and “No Time to Die.” Her celebrity aura goes from dazzling to catastrophic in just this two-minute footage, as she dazzles an audience full of great people in one second and then screams her lungs out in a building that is on fire in the next. I’m sorry, filmmaker Andrew Dominik, but Marilyn Monroe and Ana de Armas now have complete control of this movie.

Opinions on de Armas’ pronunciation of Monroe:

That being said, opinions on de Armas’ pronunciation of Monroe, whose delicate and breathy voice is inextricably linked to her legacy, have already been divided. Others provided strong support for de Armas despite the fact that some individuals referred to the actress’ Cuban-Spanish accent as “distracting.”

“People complaining about Ana de Armas’ Spanish accent in the BLONDE trailer…is one reason why actors whose native language isn’t English can’t make it in Hollywood,” one user of Twitter wrote. “Actors whose native language isn’t English can’t make it in Hollywood.” [Citation needed] “Audiences will be willing to suspend their disbelief for men with superpowers wearing tights, but they will not accept accents.”

As the director himself said, he did not set a goal to tell about the heroine with documentary accuracy – according to him, this is a personal picture of Norma Jean Mortenson and how she lived, playing the role of Monroe in public.

The world premiere of “Blonde” will take place at the Venice International Film Festival, and the tape will be released on Netflix a few weeks later – on September 28.

She is a deeply traumatized person, and her trauma forces her to separate her public and private selves. It happens to everyone, but when it comes to a celebrity, the conflict between them becomes public knowledge – and this hurts even more.

The film is largely dedicated to her relationship with herself and her image of Marilyn, which both serve as her “armor” and threaten to devour her.

If the movie had come out a few years ago, it would have come out just when the #MeToo movement was born. He would be the expression of it all. I think that we are now living in a time where people are really not sure that there are any limits. This is a movie that definitely has a moral. But he swims in very ambiguous waters because I don’t think he’s going to be as formulaic as people want him to be. There is something about him that can offend everyone.

The painting with Anna de Armas in the face of Marilyn tells about the life of the famous actress. The film is based on the 2000 novel of the same name by Joyce Carol Oates, which details Monroe’s troubled history during the 1940s and 50s.

It is worth noting that the film will go down in history as one of the few that received an age rating of NC-17 (exclusively “18+”, tantamount to pornography). According to rumors, Andrew Dominik had to fight with the producers for several months to get the original uncensored version approved.
