Ana De Armas in Blonde

The official trailer for Andrew Dominik's NC-17 biopic Blonde, featuring Ana de Armas as Marilyn Monroe, has been released on Netflix. The film's international debut will take place in the competition at the Venice Film Festival and is based on Joyce Carol Oates' best-selling book.

Marilyn Monroe is one of Hollywood's most lasting idols, and Blonde bravely reimagines her life. The film blurs the borders between fact and fiction to examine the growing gap between Norma Jeane's public and private personas, beginning with her turbulent infancy as Norma Jeane and continuing through her ascent to fame and sexual relationships.

The movie, written and directed by Andrew Dominik, stars a cast that includes Bobby Cannavale, Adrien Brody, Julianne Nicholson, Xavier Samuel, and Ana de Armas.

One of the most eagerly awaited films competing at the Venice Film Festival is this provocative flick. The director of the Cannes Film Festival, Thierry Fremaux, had claimed that he had been attempting to include it in the 2022 schedule but had been unable to come to an agreement with Netflix. Due to the festival's requirement that all films competing have theatrical distribution in France, the streamer hasn't attended Cannes since 2017.

Blonde, which Oates refers to as a feminist movie, wants to resonate with people today. According to Oates, the way many powerful men, particularly in Washington, DC, treat all women except their wives is not very different from how Kennedy treated Marilyn Monroe and continues to be.

This week saw the publication of brand-new movie stills and the announcement that actor Bobby Cannavale will play baseball legend Joe DiMaggio in the movie.

De Armas said previously in this movie that they worked on this project for hours every single day for about a year. She studied countless images, videos, audio recordings, films, and whatever else she could get her hands on in addition to reading Joyce's book. Every scenario draws inspiration from a previously taken shot. They would analyse each element of the image and discuss what was happening there. What was Norma Jeane feeling in this situation, which was always the first question asked? They wished to portray her experience from a human perspective. Fame made Norma the most invisible person in the world, while making Marilyn the most visible.

Blonde debuts on Netflix in all countries on September 28.
