The trailer for Michelle William’s My Week With Marilyn has arrived, and the Blue Valentine actress winks, dances and femme fatales it up with the best of them as America’s most iconic blonde. At least we can all agree, they got the wig right. They got the wig perfect. The film, due out November 4, follows the late great actress as she films The Prince and the Showgirl in England, feuds with co-star Sir Laurence Olivier and asks a production assistant to get her more than just coffee, if you get our drift. You … get our drift, right?
In case you weren’t feeling like watching Michelle Williams most likely kill it as Marilyn, the studio covered their bases by throwing in some skinny dipping, Emma Watson and of course Dame Judi Dench, the human equivalent of a skinny-dipping scene, talent-wise. Based solely on the trailer, do you think Michelle is looking at an Oscar nom, or is the only good part of the movie going to be those (admittedly excellent) wigs? The line “Excuse my horrible face” makes us think Michelle stands a good chance of getting a statuette.
