Netflix has shared a trailer for the biopic Blonde, featuring Ana de Armas as the late actress and Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe. In the trailer, Marilyn (de Armas) explains to Joe DiMaggio (Bobby Cannavale), to whom she was married from 1954 to 1955, how she feels a split between her onscreen personality — Marilyn — and her real self, Norma Jeane.
Blonde is based on the Joyce Carol Oates novel of the same name. An official film synopsis reads: “From her volatile childhood as Norma Jeane, through her rise to stardom and romantic entanglements, ‘Blonde’ blurs the lines of fact and fiction to explore the widening split between her public and private selves.”
Blonde is written and directed by Andrew Dominik, and also stars Adrien Brody, Xavier Samuel and Julianne Nicholson. The film is rated NC-17 for sexual content, and will have its world premiere at the Venice International Film Festival ahead of its Sept. 28 debut on Netflix.
