Trailer Debut: My Week With Marilyn

See the first moving images of Michelle Williams as screen starlet Marilyn Monroe in the newly released trailer for My Week With Marilyn.

The Simon Curtis film is based on Colin Clark’s memoirs The Prince, the Showgirl, and Me: Six Months on Set with Marilyn and Olivier. Clark was employed by Sir Laurence Olivier on the British set of 1965’s The Prince and the Showgirl, and spent a week with Olivier’s co-star Monroe, showing her the sights and helping her escape from the pressures of her high-profile existence.

No doubt The Weinstein Company will make a big push for two-time Oscar nominee Williams to take home the Best Actress prize with this performance.

Check out the trailer and share your thoughts below!


The cast includes Kenneth Branagh as Laurence Olivier, Eddie Redmayneas Colin Clark, Julia Ormond as Vivien Leigh, Judi Dench as Dame Sybil Thorndike, Dominic Cooper as famed Monroe photographer Milton Greene, Dougray Scott as playwright (and Monroe’s husband) Arthur Miller, and Emma Watson.

My Week With Marilyn opens in the U.S. on November 4, 2011, with an Australian release to follow.

Discuss: Does Williams make a convincing Monroe?

  1. No,Iam huge Fan of Marylin And James,This is another bad look,I wish they could of got a better look a Like,There are so many modeling Agents around the World,Most of them,yes have extra Talent,Marylin Doesn”t have to be a great Actress,just a bit of Singing and slow talking.
    Sure Michelle Williams is Australian,Iam all for the Aussies,But this character an Icon of the 20 century
    please ,please , I ask next time ,you need better ,Casting!!!!!!!

  2. Naturally no human could ever portray the fragile beauty of Marilyn Monroe but Michelle Williams does a magnificent job. While the story is fantasy it is good the public interest is maintained in the most beutiful and wonderful Icon of the film industry.

    • Yes,I have to Restate myself as saying yes I Now Agree with the Casting of Michelle Williams,As I see Now,She Does pull it of!
