The new Marilyn Monroe biopic “Blonde” on Netflix shows the real Marilyn Monroe beneath all the glitz. The movie’s first trailer, which features Ana de Armas as Marilyn and depicts the struggles the celebrity has with her own stardom, appeared on Thursday. On September 28, Netflix will release Blonde.

The biopic setup of Marilyn reliving her life shortly before taking the stage for a significant performance appears to be present in the clip. We see brief glimpses of some of Monroe’s most illustrious and memorable scenes and photographs, along with part of de Armas’ commentary.

One thing that’s particularly notable about Netflix’s movie is that it’s an adaptation of a Joyce Carol Oates novel of the same name, rather than a standard retelling of Monroe’s life. In other words, it’s a frequently fictionalized account of the life of Norma Jean, adding plenty of salacious details that only exist in rumor in the real world — if they exist at all.

This method of scandalous retelling is part of why the movie has earned its NC-17 rating for Netflix. This rating is rarely used by mainstream movies because there are strict laws around how these movies can be advertised, but that’s not really a problem for Netflix.
