Actress Ana de Armas took everyone by surprise as she looked every-inch as Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe in the latest 'Blonde' trailer.
The movie is based on the bestselling novel by Joyce Carol Oates which chronicles the life of the actress.
The film is written and directed by Andrew Dominik and the the supporting cast in the movie includes Bobby Cannavale, Adrien Brody, Julianne Nicholson, Xavier Samuel and Evan Williams.
"Andrew's ambitions were very clear from the start -- to present a version of Marilyn Monroe's life through her lens," de Armas recently told Netflix Queue. "He wanted the world to experience what it actually felt like to not only be Marilyn, but also her off-screen self Norma Jeane. I found that to be the most daring, unapologetic, and feminist take on her story that I had ever seen."
"We worked on this film for hours, every single day for almost a year," de Armas added. "I read Joyce's novel, studied hundreds of photographs, videos, audio recordings, films -- anything I could get my hands on. Every scene is inspired by an existing photograph. We'd pore over every detail in the photo and debate what was happening in it." "The first question was always, 'What was Norma Jeane feeling here?' We wanted to tell the human side of her story. Fame is what made Marilyn the most visible person in the world, but it also made Norma the most invisible."
'Blonde' releases globally on Netflix September 23 after premiering at the Venice FIlm Festival.
