'Blonde': What time will Marilyn Monroe's biopic release on Netflix?
Ana de Armas plays the iconic sex symbol of the 1950s and 1960s who received a lot of success in her career, but a lot of tragedies in her personal life
Making a movie about someone’s life is very tough. The makers and everyone involved with the project have to make sure that they get everything else about someone who has influenced the world in an impeccable manner. One such personality was Marilyn Monroe and we all know how she took everyone by storm with her bold lifestyle and her looks. However, if you don’t know much about her, then Netflix’s upcoming movie ‘Blonde’ will give you a glimpse of how enigmatic and bold she was in the 1950s and 1960s.
Based on the bestselling novel written by Joyce Carol Oates, ‘Blonde’ chronicles the journey of one of Hollywood’s biggest icons and shows how she became one of the most popular sex symbols of the 1950s and early 1960s. Even though Monroe became an icon during the aforementioned period, her troubled personal life also received a lot of attention. Throughout her adult life, she struggled with addiction and mood disorders. Despite being one of the most popular actors at the time, Monroe found herself surrounded by far more enemies than friends.
Ana de Armas portrays Marilyn Monroe in the movie, which created a lot of buzz before its release. So, when is the movie coming out? Let’s take a look.
What time will ‘Blonde’ release on Netflix?
Even though ‘Blonder’ is a fictionalized take on Marilyn Monroe’s, there is a lot of excitement in the minds of viewers and they can’t wait to see what kind of tragedies she faced in her personal as well as professional life. Netflix will be releasing the movie on Friday, September 28, 2022, at 3.01 am EST.
The movie has been given an “NC-17” rating which is the highest rating in the MPAA rating system. It means that ‘Blonde’ is not suitable for anyone who has not turned 18. The decision made by MPAA has annoyed the cast and crew of the movie, especially Armas. While speaking in an interview, ‘The Gray Man’ star revealed that they had to “go to uncomfortable places” to show how troubled Monroe’s life was and what she went through in her life.
“I can tell you a number of shows or movies that are way more explicit with a lot more sexual content than ‘Blonde’. But to tell this story it is important to show all these moments in Marilyn's life that made her end up the way that she did. It needed to be explained,” Armas told The Hollywood Reporter.
‘Blue is the Warmest Color’ (2013), ‘Descent’ (2007), and ‘Shame’ (2011) are some of the recent movies that received the NC-17 rating from the Motion Picture Association (MPAA).
‘Blonde’ also stars Adrien Brody (Arthur Miller), Bobby Cannavale (Joe DiMaggio), Julianne Nicholson (Gladys Pearl Baker), and Xavier Samuel (Charles Chaplin Jr.) in pivotal roles.
