The world premiere of the highly anticipated film about Marilyn Monroe’s life, “Blonde” by Andrew Dominik has happened. The biopic debuted to a massive 14-minute long standing ovation after the screening at Venice Film Festival. It looks like a new record for the festival.
Ana de Armas, who plays Monroe, was in tears after the premiere.
Her co-star Adrien Brody also shed some tears, while Brad Pitt, who is one of the film’s producers was “visibly pleased.” Pitt made a surprise appearance in Venice because he was not present at the film’s press conference earlier in the day.
The biographical drama, based on the novel by Joyce Carol Oates reimagines the life of Monroe, from her volatile childhood as Norma Jeane through her rise to stardom. The creators promise that the Netflix movie might offend the fans of the legendary actress.
We don't have long to wait: "Blonde" is set to premiere on Netflix as early as September 28.
