The trailer for Blonde, the film based on Joyce Carol Oates’ novel of the same name, is finally out, and fans can get their first look at Ana de Armas as Marilyn Monroe.
Blondes, starring Bobby Cannavale, Adrien Brody, Julian Nicholson, Xavier Samuel and Evan Williams, will be released worldwide on Netflix on September 28.
De Armas explained to Netflix Q that he read Oates’ novel to prepare for the role, and also studied “hundreds of photographs, films, audio recordings, films.”
Who is Joyce Carol Oates?
Joyce Carol Oates wrote only 60 books, as well as plays, novels, short stories, poetry and non-fiction. He was born in June 1938 and is 84 years old.
He has received several honors for his work, including the Bram Stoker Award in 1996 and the National Book Award in 1970. Oates is also a five-time Pulitzer Prize finalist.
For 47 years, Oates worked with Ontario professor and editor Raymond J. Smith married. In 2008, he tragically died of complications from pneumonia. She later met and married neuroscientist Charlie Gross.
In an interview with The New York Review, Oates explained that writing came very naturally to him.
“I like to work with language and (usually) imagine voices that mediate narratives of complexity and authenticity, which can create wonder in writing and explore some kind of vivid alternate reality,” he says. He may give this opportunity.”
Why did Otes Gora write?
Oates told CNN in 2000 that she was inspired by seeing a photo of Norma Jane, real name Marilyn Monroe, taken in 1944, when the star was just 17 years old.
I saw her in a typical American girl, nothing like the emerging Marilyn Monroe, with her platinum blonde, fake hair and exaggerated glamour. I was particularly fond of Norma Jean with her shoulders on her shoulders. “She had curly brown hair and a very sweet, pretty face that wasn’t pretty, but very attractive,” Oates said.
What does Oates think of Gora?
Oates has seen the film and described Andrew Dominique as a very prolific director during a discussion at the 21st Neuchatel Intl. Big film festival in Switzerland.
I think he was able to show Norma Jean Baker’s experience from her point of view, rather than looking at it from the outside, with a man looking at a woman. She was immersed in his vision.
Oates also talked about De Armas’ physical transformation into Monroe, saying it took “hours”.
“I think it took her four hours of makeup,” she said. So when you see them on the screen, they don’t really exist. It’s like a grand picture, but it takes a lot of trouble to bring it to life. As Marilyn got older, she was still offered roles that a young actress would play, and she felt humiliated. ,
