Soon, a movie will be released that is based on the career of one of the most famous actresses in Hollywood. A fictitious account of the life of Marilyn Monroe is told in the film Blonde. The psychological and biographical drama was adapted by Joyce Carol Oates from her novel of the same name, which was published in 2000.
Netflix debuted the film’s trailer back in July; however, it has only come to light that the movie itself will first make its debut in theaters before it is made available on the streaming service. Continue reading to find out when the movie will be in theaters.
Blonde Release Date
On September 8, 2022, the movie will make its debut before the world at the 79th Venice International Film Festival. After that, it will have a limited theatrical release in New York on September 16, and on September 23, it will have a limited release in other states. Beginning on Wednesday, September 28, Blonde will at long last be available to view on Netflix.
Because of the film’s explicit sexual material, it has been given the NC-17 rating, making it the first movie to ever receive that rating and be made available on a streaming service. Andrew Dominik, who is both a writer and director, commented on this new turn of events by saying, “It’s a tough movie. If the audience does not enjoy it, then that is the audience’s damn fault to begin with. That’s not the same thing as running for public office.”
The actress who plays Marilyn Monroe in the film, Ana de Armas, also voiced her disappointment and said, “I don’t understand why that happened. I can think of a few other shows or movies that are both more sexually explicit and have a greater overall quantity of sexual content than Blonde does. However, in order to tell this narrative accurately, it is necessary to show all of the events in Marilyn’s life that led up to the conclusion that was reached. It is necessary to provide an explanation.”
The Film is a Reimagining of the Events That Transpired in Monroe’s Life
It is almost certain that the biopic Blonde will delve into the detailed details of both Monroe’s personal and professional lives. The visions of Joyce Carol Oates and Andrew Dominik will be interwoven into the narrative in the form of fictional components, respectively.
“Discover a life both known and unknown in this daringly inventive film from Director Andrew Dominik that investigates the tumultuous life of Hollywood legend Marilyn Monroe,” reads the official synopsis of the movie. “Discover a life both known and unknown in this film.”

In an interview, Armas discussed how she prepared for the role by stating, “We worked on this film for hours, every single day for practically a whole year.” I read the novel by Joyce and researched a large number of images, videos, audio recordings, and films along with whatever else I could get my hands on. Each scene was conceived with a pre-existing photograph in mind.
She went on to say, “We’d examine the photograph in great detail and argue about what was taking place in it.” The very first thing anybody wanted to know was, “What was Norma Jeane feeling at this very moment?” We wanted to focus on the more personal aspects of her life.”
