No big surprise here, the first clip the Weinstein Co. has decided to release from My Week with Marilyn features Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe as she’s singing in the bath just as Eddie Redmayne as Colin Clark peeks in and the two share a glance.
The clip really doesn’t do much in terms of previewing what we should expect from the film, but does show a little skin, which is never a bad thing for raising awareness on the Internet. Then there’s a second clip featuring the actress in a performance of “Heat Wave”, which I understand is how the film opens.
To go along with the clips I have a new poster for the film as well, which you can see there to the right and get a larger look in my gallery which is now up to 20 images from the film. Click here for that larger look.
My Week with Marilyn is set to hit theaters on November 23, and as I’ve said before, the film film depicts one week in the life of Marilyn Monroe (Williams), which she spends with 23 year-old Colin Clark (Redmayne), an assistant to Sir Laurence Olivier (Kenneth Branagh) who is directing Monroe’s latest film, The Prince and the Showgirl. The story focuses on the time Clark spent with Monroe when her new husband, the playwright Arthur Miller, leaves England and Colin is able to introduce Marilyn to some of the pleasures of British life.
