Ana de Armas Transforms Into Icon Marilyn Monroe In Netflix Film
Netflix just dropped the first look at Blonde, and what an uncanny look it is. In this new teaser trailer for the Andrew Dominik-directed film starring Ana de Armas as Marilyn Monroe, the Hollywood icon is initially depicted as a tearful bundle of nerves, praying that some mysterious “she” won’t abandon her.
As her make-up is applied and Monroe transforms into a smiling, radiant star, we realize exactly who she’s has been waiting for.
Dominik wrote and directed Blonde based on the novel by Joyce Carol Oates, and the film blends fact and fiction to reimagine the life of the great Hollywood star, exploring the split between Monroe’s public and private selves.
Ana de Armas revealed the first photos and video trailer playing Marilyn Monroe in the upcoming Netflix biopic “Blonde,” calling it a “beautiful dream.”
The Cuban actress shared, “Andrew’s ambitions were very clear from the start — to present a version of Marilyn Monroe’s life through her lens. 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.”
The Bond girl, 34, also channels the Hollywood bombshell in her famous hot pink dress from the 1953 film “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes” and her infamous white dress from the 1955 film “The Seven Year Itch.”
In addition to de Armas, the cast includes Adrien Brody, Bobby Cannavale, Caspar Phillipson, Evan Williams, Toby Huss, Julianne Nicholson, Lily Fisher, Sara Paxton, David Warshofsky, Xavier Samuel, Michael Masini, Spencer Garrett, Chris Lemmon, Rebecca Wisocky, Scoot McNairy, Dan Butler, Garret Dillahunt, Lucy Devito, and Ned Bellamy.
Producers are Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner, Tracey Landon, Scott Robertson, with Christina Oh as Executive Producer.
Blonde will be released globally on Netflix September 23.
