What a week it's been for Marilyn Monroe. On Thursday, Netflix released the trailer for Blonde, the highly anticipated NC-17-rated Marilyn Monroe flick starring Ana de Armas. 

Based on the novel by Joyce Carol Oates, Blonde reimagines the life and times of Monroe from her origin as Norma Jeane Baker to her ascent to Hollywood stardom. It's directed by The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford's Andrew Dominik and also stars  Bobby Cannavale, Adrien Brody, Julianne Nicholson, Xavier Samuel and Evan Williams.

The black and white trailer finds Marilyn sitting before a vanity in distress. “Please come. Don't abandon me,” she ekes out as a makeup artist, wipes away her tears and attempts to finish her eyeliner.

The Cuban actress shared, “Andrew’s ambitions were very clear from the start — to present a version of Marilyn Monroe’s life through her lens.

The Bond girl, 34, also channels the Hollywood bombshell in her famous hot pink dress from the 1953 film “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes” and her infamous white dress from the 1955 film “The Seven Year Itch.”

In the teaser released on Thursday, the “Knives Out” actress, who had a high-profile romance with Ben Affleck before splitting at the beginning of 2021, stuns as the legendary actress. The much-anticipated movie is based on the 2000 book by Joyce Carol Oates.
