Netflix has just released the first look of Blonde and Ana de Armas new look as Marilyn Monroe in uncanny.

In this new teaser trailer for the Andrew Dominik-directed drama, Marilyn Monroe is originally presented as a sobbing bundle of anxieties, begging that some unknown “she” will not abandon her.

The official synopsis for the movie reads.

[The film] boldly reimagines the life of one of Hollywood’s most enduring icons, Marilyn Monroe. From her volatile childhood as Norma Jeane, through her rise to stardom and romantic entanglements, ‘Blonde’ blurs the lines of fact and fiction to explore the widening split between her public and private selves.

Blonde, based on the novel by Joyce Carol Oates, was written and directed by Dominik, and it combines reality and fiction to reinvent the life of the famous Hollywood actress, probing the divide between Marilyn Monroe’s public and private personas.

Ana de Armas in an interview regarding the movie stated.

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.
