Highly anticipated and already much discussed to release in a banned version for minors, it will soon arrive on Netflix Blonde, directed by Andrew Dominik, with Ana de Armas and based on Joyce Carol Oates’ beautiful Marilyn Monroe novel. Here is the first trailer.
Blonde, the film Andrew Dominik made from Joyce Carol Oates’ stunning Marilyn Monroe novel of the same name, is coming to Netflix soon and finally, after hearing so much about it, the first (short) and beautiful trailer has arrived! As is well known, Dominik has repeatedly stated that his is not a sweetened version of the story, but contains, like the book, many strong scenes, so the film is, in fact, forbidden to minors. Ana de Armas, who plays Marilyn, already shines in these few scenes.
Blonde, from book to a movie
Published in 2000, Joyce Carol Oates’ “Blonde” is not a biography but a novel that chronicles the inner torments of a woman ruthlessly exploited by the male world, a story that takes cues from the true events of Marilyn Monroe’s life to create an exciting and heartbreaking narrative of the person behind the character. In the trailer we see Ana de Armas on makeup, trying to evoke her charming alter ego, and we also see other scenes, including the premiere of When His Wife Is on Vacation in which she wears the famous dress, while in the background we listen to a slowed and distorted version of “Diamonds are a girls’ best friend”, from the movie How to Marry a Millionaire.
Personally we are already very impressed with this short trailer and can’t wait to see the movie. The cast, in addition to the lead, are Adrien Brody, Bobby Cannavale and Julianne Nicholson.
