Blonde, based on the life of iconic actress and Hollywood star Marilyn Monroe, is due to launch on Netflix later this month.

According to Netflix’s regular release schedule, the film might premiere at midnight PT/3 a.m. ET.

Blonde’s highly stylized trailer introduces Ana De Armas as Marilyn Monroe from the start. In front of a mirror, the skilled actress recreates Monroe’s iconic portrait.

“A look at the meteoric ascent and dramatic end of actress Marilyn Monroe, one of the world’s greatest stars.”

Another plot summary for the film is as follows:

“Blonde, based on Joyce Carol Oates’ famous book, reimagines the life of one of Hollywood’s most lasting legends, Marilyn Monroe. Blonde blurs the borders between truth and fiction to examine the growing divide between her public and private personalities, beginning with her tumultuous youth as Norma Jeane and continuing through her rise to celebrity and sexual entanglements.”

Ana De Armas has previously highlighted how tough it was for her to put herself in the shoes of Marilyn Monroe, a disturbed lady. Armas talked with Entertainment Weekly about the film’s sexual sequences and her experience shooting it.


She said,

“I knew what I was doing, and I felt quite comfortable and protected. Because I was in charge, I didn’t feel exploited. That was my choice. I knew exactly what I was doing with the film. I had faith in my director. I had the impression that I was in a secure place.”
