While we weren’t too jazzed with the movie when we saw it at the New York Film Festival, there’s no denying that Michelle Williams looks positively radiant in the batch of stills, magazine spreads and promo material for the film and this latest poster debuted at Moviefone is yet another in a string of artwork that finds the actress channeling Marilyn Monroe with ease.
The eyes have it in this otherwise black-and-white one sheet that continues to sell a movie that Eddie Redmayne described to us as “a celebration for what filmmaking was in this era.” Directed by Simon Curtis, the plot centers on Marilyn Monroe’s friendship with young Englishman Colin Clark while in the U.K. shooting “The Prince and the Showgirl,” as well as her tempestuous relationship with director/co-star Laurence Olivier. Redmayne plays Clark, with Kenneth Branagh taking on the mantle of Olivier, and Julia Ormond as Olivier’s wife Vivien Leigh. Judi Dench, Dougray Scott, Derek Jacobi, Dominic Cooper and Emma Watson round out the cast for the film that is still a question mark in the awards season race, but will likely see The Weinstein Company going to the hoop hard for Williams.
“My Week With Marilyn” opens on November 23rd. Poster below.
