Netflix has released a new trailer for the NC-17 Marilyn Monroe movie Blonde, which stars No Time To Die and Knives Out actress Ana de Armas in the lead role. The dramatic trailer shows de Armas as Monroe speaking to Bobby Cannavale’s Joe DiMaggio at dinner, telling him about the struggles of her life.
“Marilyn doesn’t exist. When I come out of my dressing room, I’m Norma Jean. Marilyn Monroe only exists on the screen,” she says.
Blonde, which is Netflix’s first NC-17 original movie, invites viewers to witness “a life both known and unknown” about the famous singer and actress of the ’50s and ’60s. The movie is based on the novel of the same name from Joyce Carol Oates, and it is not a traditional biopic. It blurs the lines between fact and fiction and is described by Netflix as “boldly imaginative.”
