My Week With Marilyn Trailer: Michelle Williams Channels a Hollywood Legend

Ready to see how well Michelle Williams fills the iconic shoes of Marilyn Monroe? In the My Week With Marilyn trailer, Williams portrays the star during a trip overseas to London while filming of The Prince and the Showgirl in 1956. A production assistant, Colin Clark (Eddie Redmayne), is assigned to guide her around Britain for a week, and she wins him over with her trademark charm.

The film is based on the accounts of the real Clark, and though the flirtation between him and Marilyn seems interesting enough, I'm not sure if I'm completely accepting Williams as Monroe. Perhaps both actresses are just too familiar for me, because when I watched the trailer, I still see Williams in a costume. Still, I believe in her as an actress, so I'll wait until I see the full film to judge. Plus, I'm also excited to see Emma Watson in a smaller part as a wardrobe assistant, and Kenneth Branagh as Sir Laurence Olivier. Check out the trailer and let me know what you think after the jump.

I was totally against the casting of Michelle Williams as Marilyn, but I'm rather impressed by the glimpses of her we see in the trailer.

I think I've gotta see past Marilyn being such an icon, and just believe in Michelle Williams as an actress, playing her as a character, and not just trying to be a lookalike! Looks interesting enough.

I just don't find Michelle convincing as Marilyn...maybe I'd need to see the whole film to be convinced! Nice to see Dame Judi Dench though, i love her!

wow. This movie could either be very bad or very good but judging by the trailer the acting is on point. From Dawson's Creek to this. Amazing.
