Last week we gave you the first images from My Week With Marilyn starring Michelle Williams looking fantastic as well as sexy as the iconic Marilyn Monroe and during the small hours of this morning the official trailer has now arrived!
My Week With Marilyn is based on the memoirs of Sir Lawrence Oliver’s (Kenneth Branagh) assistant Colin Clark(Eddie Redmayne) who was given the mammoth task of looking after the iconic actress whilst she lived in the UK whilst she was filming The Prince And Showgirl with Oliver (who was the director too) whom she had a temptress relationship with. Michelle William’s looks fantastic and she’s going all out to be Monroe or is she Norma Jean or Both? Interesting to see how deep into Monroe’s private life as well public persona the film will go. A fantastic cast in this movie which frankly we haven’t heard much about Judi Dench as actress Sybil Thorndike, Julia Ormond as Olivier’s wife Vivien Leigh, Dougray Scott as Monroe’s husband Arthur Miller, with Derek Jacobi, Dominic Cooper and Emma Watson.
Can you remember when the tragic actress was at the boom of her career? What are your thoughts on the actress if your not old enough to remember her? Love to hear your comments on Marilyn Monroe as well as this film by leaving your comments below. The movie will arrive on November 18th in UK&Ireland and November 4th in USA.
My Week With Marilyn’ chronicles a week in the life of Marilyn Monroe (Michelle Williams) in which she escapes the shackles of her Hollywood career and embraces British life with Colin Clark. In the early summer of 1956, 23 year-old Colin Clark, just down from Oxford and determined to make his way in the film business, worked as a lowly assistant on the set of ‘The Prince and the Showgirl’, the film that famously united Sir Laurence Olivier and Marilyn Monroe, who was also on honeymoon with her new husband, the playwright Arthur Miller.
Nearly 40 years on, his diary account ‘The Prince, the Showgirl and Me’ was published, but one week was missing and this was published some years later as ‘My Week with Marilyn’ – this is the story of that week. When Arthur Miller leaves England, the coast is clear for Colin to introduce Marilyn to some of the pleasures of British life; an idyllic week in which he escorted a Monroe desperate to get away from her retinue of Hollywood hangers-on and the pressures of work.
