Netflix Releases Trailer For Marilyn Monroe Movie Starring Ana de Armas

Netflix has released a new trailer for its Marilyn Monroe film, Blonde, starring Ana de Armas. Watch it here:


The long-awaited film sees the 34-year-old play the Hollywood icon, and it caused a stir earlier this year after it was revealed to be the streaming site's first original film with an NC-17 rating, meaning it's not suitable for viewers under 17 years of age.

Based on Joyce Carol Oates' bestselling novel of the same name, it chronicles Monroe's private life.


However, the author has insisted that the source material is a work of fiction and should not be regarded as a biography.

Netflix's official synopsis: "The film is a fictional portrait of the model, actress and singer during the ’50s and ’60s, told through the modern lens of celebrity culture."

It's safe to say Oates is already a fan of the big screen adaptation, writing on Twitter back in August 2020: "I have seen the rough cut of Andrew Dominick's adaptation and it is startling, brilliant, very disturbing & [perhaps most surprisingly] an utterly 'feminist' interpretation... not sure that any male director has ever achieved anything this."
