Michelle Williams: 'My Week With Marilyn' Trailer!

Check out Michelle Williams in the trailer for her new movie, My Week With Marilyn!

Here’s the film’s official synopsis: In the early summer of 1956, 23-year-old Colin Clark (Eddie Redmayne), just down from Oxford and determined to make his way in the film business, worked as a lowly assistant on the set of The Prince and the Showgirl. The film that famously united Sir Laurence Olivier (Kenneth Branagh) and Marilyn Monroe (Williams), who was also on honeymoon with her new husband, the playwright Arthur Miller (Dougray Scott).

Nearly 40 years on, his diary account “The Prince, the Showgirl and Me” was published, but one week was missing and this was published some years later as “My Week with Marilyn” – this is the story of that week. When Arthur Miller leaves England, the coast is clear for Colin to introduce Marilyn to some of the pleasures of British life; an idyllic week in which he escorted a Monroe desperate to get away from her retinue of Hollywood hangers-on and the pressures of work.

    Marilyn Monroe was the most Beautiful Woman in the World, Michelle Williams not even comes close, i like her but don’t works to me.

  • Sonia0404

    She’s an amazing actress! So very professional, capable of transforming into very different genres!

    Michelle may be on her way to get another Oscar nomination!

    BTW, I am saddened but also very happy missing seeing Matilda.

  • SnOOKIE

    not bad

    I’ve been waiting for the trailer for this movie for months. I think Michelle is not only a wonderful choice for the role, but perfect infact. She is one of the best actresses around now, and she is able to bring a realistic element to all her roles. She will nail the raw emotion of Marylin, and from the trailer, she has nailed the look & voice. Maybe the Oscar will finally be hers.

  • blah

    seems just like any other Lifetime tv movie…

  • [~Fug Face Man!ston~]

    …Seriously, she does Marilyn NO justice! …She’s really not pretty enough. It’s just boring ole Michelle Williams in a Marilyn wig.

  • Ana

    I can’t wait to see Eddie in this. He’s such great actor and so underrated.

  • Marina

    Wow, she has no sex appeal at all as Marilyn Monroe!
    They wasted a great opportunity to cast an unknown actress as Marilyn, and bring a new face to the big screen. There is a shortage of beautiful, young, and talented actressess in Hollywood nowadays.

  • Mimi

    This movie looks really stupid. Not that I’m a fan of Marilyn’s, because I think she was a slutty dumb blonde, neither qualities that I can stand. Having said that though, no one, including Michelle Williams can play her. There are certain people in this world who should not be portrayed in movies – Marilyn, Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn and Jackie O. I think Sherilyn Fenn did a good job playing Elizabeth Taylor though in a TV movie back in the 90′s.

  • ab

    @onyx: Marilyn has plastic surgery, Michelle did not.

  • Mimi

    @why??: That’s funny! Meryl is awesome, but I don’t think even she could do Marilyn. She could probably do the voice though.

  • Ismail

    @Rachael:

    I don’t know about that mate!

    Meryl Streep and Keira Knightley are strong contenders too this year!

  • Emma

    LoOks good. i cant wait to see it.

  • sb

    not believable, she cannot convey the sex appeal part no matter how well she recite her script. You look and wonder what those paps are doing scrambling to take pics of this girl. She just cannot play Marilyn. Having say that I still think she is a great actress and I think she is cute, just completely miscast in this tole.

  • cronwall

    Why is it that there is such an OBSESSION with marilyn monroe? we just can’t let that lady rest in peace! michelle williams doesn’t look like or act like Marilyn.

  • Joe

    Marilyn was HOT… Michelle is NOT.

  • Alice

    Her voice just doesn’t fit Marilyn’s well…She looks gorgeous though and the trailer makes the movie look stellar. A little concerned about the lack of sex appeal from Michelle though. Definitely going to see it no matter what.

  • jess

    I think that Scarlett Johansson would be perfect for this role, as I think Mila Kunis or Olivia Wilde would be perfect for the role of Catwoman. Nothing against Michelle or Anne, but both are not sexy, which is crucial in these roles. :/

  • Lauren

    Can’t wait to see it!!! It looks really good!

  • Misha

    Movie looks good, but as a life long Marilyn fan, Michelle is way off the mark here, doesnt convince as Marilyn at all, shame as I do like her

  • Rachael

    @ismail I’m also a very big fan or Meryl & Keira, they are among some of my favourite actresses. But not matter what we all say, Michelle got the part, and she obviously got it for a reason. In my opinion she will do the role justice. We have all only seen bits of her performance in the trailer, so its hand to grasp what the story will be & which side of Marilyn will be strongest portrayed in the story. Either way, I think she will show an above average performance in this movie as she has in many others.

    Also to all the people calling her ugly, you should be ashamed of yourselves. She is blatantly not. How shallow can you be! She is obviously not going to look the exact spitting image of Marilyn, but I think they’ve pulled off the look very well.

  • Rat Appeal

    @Rachael:
    The only reason she got the part is because of her having had a very famous actor’s child. That’s it.
    This moron director named Simon Curtis believed this choice would be a slam dunk for him bringing in a Heath Ledger audience.
    I hope this Simon fails for picking this untalented lowly woman to represent a legend.
    Michelle is making a complete jackass out of herself in this movie.
    It’s so obvious that she is trying so hard to act like Marilyn.
    That is not what will make this a movie people care about.
    Michelle is not attractive and picking her for this part is an insult to Marilyn.

  • dcedf

    @Rat Appeal:
    quit bringing up heath you rat hes been dead forever now,balding and all
    he was not attractive himsself

  • Rat Appeal

    @dcedf:
    You sound very educated with your jackass comment.
    Why don’t you just put Steve Jobs down while your at it?
    Heath Ledger is now living in a better world than you and I are and he was not balding you scumbag. He just stopped getting dressed up for the public after Michelle the loser drained all the life out of him because he couldn’t stand living with her. She is the one who is not attractive.
    I should assume that you are gorgeous like Heath Ledger was in Casanova?

    Please.

    What this person said is exactly why Michelle got this acting role to play Marilyn Monroe.

  • jenni

    It’s weird she’s playing someone who died under the same way Heath did. They both died nude and in bed due to an accident trying to get sleep.

  • dcedf

    @Rat Appeal:
    Youre dumb then if you dont know he was balding.Look
    at his hairline in those im not there pics and how he always
    shaved his head in the past.Guess you arent a big fan if you
    didnt know that.
    Youre the scumbag always coming to michelle articles just to bring her down, so im doing the same to you for heath who you worship.

  • Joanna

    Sorry people but Michelle Williams is truly awful in the trailer, embarrassing so. Not once did I think that was Marilyn, just the same 3 expression Michelle Williams.

    Rat Appeal, you are right on the money.

  • Princess Actress

    @dcedf:
    Try listening to Fame Ticket and then you will finally realize that many people never like Michelle Williams.

  • Crap Actress

    This trailer clip video still of Michelle as Marilyn Monroe is
    THE MOST ASININE PHOTO OF MICHELLE WILLIAMS EVER.
    This is the Marilyn Movie we have all been waiting for?
    Michelle dressed up as Marilyn Monroe is best for some college freshman
    orientation program at their theatre department and that’s it.
