In the first trailer for “Blonde,” out on Netflix and released on Thursday, Ana de Armas transforms into Marilyn Monroe. The Netflix biopic, which is based on the best-selling book by Joyce Carol Oates, will make its world premiere at the 2022 Venice Film Festival and go on sale on September 28.
Ana de Armas presents the legendary Hollywood beauty in some of her most famous fashion looks throughout the two-minute animation, from her pink “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes” gown to her windblown white bridle dress from the movie The Seven Year Itch.
Along with other iconic looks, costume designer Jennifer Johnson, who has primarily worked on “I, Tonya” and “Beginners,” skilfully reproduced Monroe’s tie-front “Niagara” dress and her sheer, sequined hot gown.
What Can We Expect From Marilyn Monroe’s Debut?
Ana de Armas has finally made her major acting debut as Norma Jean after months, years, or many rumours, chitchat, and much delay. The actress is finally playing Marilyn Monroe in the first full-length teaser for Andrew Dominik’s eagerly anticipated Blonde.
She is having panic over what see herself in the persona of Marilyn Monroe, despite the fact that she is succeeding in Hollywood. The Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend song sings over the entire trailer, creates ideal balance of scary and lovely.
In the primary scene of the trailer, Bobby Cannavale plays an ex-athlete role, saying Marilyn, at a dinner scene. Marilyn claims she was never established as fame barged through her door and hasn’t stopped following her ever since.
She says I have performed as Marilyn Monroe several times, but I can’t bear to perform as Marilyn Monroe in another scene. Ana de Armas appears to be putting on a true tour de force performance, which is to be expected after singles like Knives Out but No Time to Die.
What Distinguishes It From The Other Monroe Biopics?
The American Film Institute ranked Marilyn Monroe as the sixth greatest female screen icon in American film history, and innumerable novels, plays, songs, and even operas have been created about her.
She was one of the top-earning actresses of her day for more than a decade, and on August 4, 1962, she passed away at home in Los Angeles from a barbiturate overdose at the age of 36. Her demise was determined to be likely due to suicide.
However, Ana De Armas’s accent as Marilyn Monroe, whose breathy voice is inimitable to her legacy, has already flashed controversy. Some people criticised the actress’ Cuban-Spanish accent as “distracting,” but others shielded de Armas well.
The actress’s unnatural and awkward poses during prime moments on the sets of movies make it clear that she is uneasy with her life. But those poses are only half of the story, later she goes through a roller coaster of emotions.
The dress suffocated the glittering costumes, according to the photographers. In one outstanding scene, Marilyn looks in the mirror and seems to be laughing, but she isn’t. Only the lady in the mirror laughs; the other side remains still and doesn’t change.
What To Expect From The “Blonde”
It might be a challenging film. If the audience dislikes it, then that is entirely her fault. It’s a Marilyn Monroe movie rated NC-17, which is kind of what you want, right? I’m interested in viewing the NC-17 version of the Marilyn Monroe story.
Dominik, the filmmaker has turned out to be a debate for a while as the movie gets ready for a late 2022 release. The film’s uninterested audiences have already given the film the middle finger without watching it.
On the other hand, he has boasted quite a bit about Blonde getting the rare NC-17 rating. However, it will be available on Netflix on September 23. How can the streamer prevent any teenagers from watching it?
It makes a difference when her famous aura changes dramatically in just one two-minute clip, going from captivating an audience full of notable people to screaming her lungs out in a burning building. To Andrew Dominik, we apologise; this is now only a Marilyn Monroe and Ana de Armas production.
