Netflix Drops Teaser Trailer for “Blonde” Starring Ana de Armas

Andrew Dominik shares the life of Hollywood icon Marylin Monroe through his lens.


Netflix gives audiences a glimpse into Ana de Armas’s transformation into Marylin Monroe for Blonde. Directed by Andrew Dominik, the new film follows the life of the Hollywood icon from her days as Norma Jeane to her rise to fame.

The film takes inspiration from Joyce Carol Oates’ novel, Blonde. Dominik takes facts and fiction and merges them for his new take on Monroe’s story. When speaking with Netflix Queue, de Armas said “Andrew’s ambitions were very clear from the start — to present a version of Marilyn Monroe’s life through her lens.” For one of the first times, audiences will see the true version of the actress.
