Making a biopic is never easy. The makers and everyone involved with the project have to take care of all the minor details about someone who has impacted or influenced the world in an impeccable manner. One such personality was Marilyn Monroe and we all know how she took the world by storm with her looks and bold lifestyle. Netflix just released the first teaser trailer for its Marilyn Monroe biopic, entitled 'Blonde’, which sees Ana De Armas recreating some of the most iconic moments given to us by the blonde bombshell.

Based on the bestselling novel by Joyce Carol Oates, ‘Blonde’ will take place during Monroe’s golden decades of the 50s and 60s. It is a fictionalized take on the celebrity’s life and will give viewers a glimpse of her inner life and perspective on the world. The black and white trailer starts with Marilyn Monroe (Ana De Armas) crying in front of a mirror and also shows a snippet of the iconic white dress moment. The teaser, which is just over 1 minute, shows how Monroe lived her life and how much she suffered behind closed doors. Even when she was smiling for the cameras, there was something inside her that was bothering her.
