Marilyn Gets a Poster!






Behold! It’s the official poster for My Week with Marilyn, the film I’ve been excited about ever since I found out Michelle Williams was on board as the iconic blonde bombshell. Incidentally, the film was recently announced as the centerpiece of the 2011 New York Film Festival and will premiere on October 9th (the fest runs from September 30th through October 16th). The NYFF is also presenting special screenings of the 1959 epic Ben-Hur and Nicholas Ray’s 1973 film We Can’t Go Home Again. Needless to say, I’m itching to get tickets.


Whatcha think of the poster? FYI, it's a recreation of Monroe's arrival in London to begin filming on The Prince and the Showgirl.

I must say I'm not thrilled about the casting of this movie. Although most of the actors are excellent, it bugs me a little when I can't find a resemblence between the actors and the people they portray (when it's about real, famous people). The only one I think looks like his character is Kenneth Branagh, who I hope will be a fine Olivier.

I was actually pleasantly surprised at how Michelle Williams was able to embody the look of Marilyn. I think she'll be able to portray her well. Who would you have cast? I'm always curious about these things :)

I would have cast Christina Hendricks. She's a very good actress (if you've seen her in Mad Men, you know what I'm talking about) and she has a soft voice that reminds me of Marilyn's every time she opens her mouth. And I think her face resembles MM more than Michelle's. The only thing, I think, about Hendricks that might not have worked, is the fact that she has a more voluptuous body and people might have a problem with that, as Marilyn was curvy, but still a petit woman.

Yes, I love Christina Hendricks on Mad Men! And I agree she's very Marilyn-esque. But yea, like you said, she may have been a bit too curvy.
