Michelle Williams dazzles in new 'My Week With Marilyn' poster

There were always two Marilyn Monroes: the real and the fake, the little-girl lost and the whispery vixen. In the new poster for My Week With Marilyn, the drama set during the making of the 1957 movie, The Prince and Showgirl, Michelle Williams somehow manages to capture both in one snapshot. Her blue eyes are tilted upwards, conveying vulnerability, while a delicate finger traces her lower lip, evoking playful flirtation. The more you look at the photo, though, the more you're not sure about her intentions. It has a Mona Lisa quality to it. Perhaps we're supposed to see what we desire. Monroe, of all women, would understand that. Click below for the large version.

    I need to see this movie. Like, now.

    I am sure Katie Holmes is looking at this poster and thinking “I can’t believe I sold my soul to Tom Cruise & Scientology for private jets, top designers & the A-List” and I could have had some sort of acting career after Dawson Creek.

      Michelle is indeed fabulous and she’s lucky to have such a stellar career after Dawson’s Creek. On the other hand, I’m sure Katie has a sure thing with her “private jets, top designers & the A-List”. She’ll be taken cared of for life — especially after the settlement she’ll get when Tom finally comes out of the closet (same for John Travolta’s wife).

        Michelle has infinitely more talent than Katie, so you can’t blame their career disparity simply on the coo-coo religion.

      My God, get over it.

        I would think James Van Der Beek should be the jealous onem Katie, Michelle and Joshua are all doing better than he is career wise.

    That…is one…unbelievable…poster!!!!

    • Alomgir

      WTF. I haven’t been to Boston since before the shiny bean. I cperpaiate her legacy, but a giant statue?? That movie wasn’t filmed in Chicago. I’d rather see a 30-ft statue of Ferris Bueller. Seriously, you can literally see up her giant ass.

    I can’t wait to see this movie! Probably the closest to Marilyn yet!

  • Yvonne

    This is by far the best promo pic I’ve seen of Michelle Williams as Marilyn. I’m looking forward to this film!

    • LM

      Agree on both.

  • Liz

    Wow, it really conveys the essence of Marilyn, the vulnerability & sensuality… Great job Michelle!

  • Marilyn Fan

    After seeing the trailer of this film, Michelle Williams did not capture the allure, glamour, mannerisms, nor Marilyn’s speaking voice. Williams does not deserve an Oscar nomination for this unconvincing turn ( Sadly, Madonna did a better Marilyn than Michelle ) . Now, Poppy Montgomery’s impression of Monroe is still the best version. Why didn’t Poppy receive an Emmy nomination for that great performance.

    • Sarah

      OMG I totally agree! Even if the movie wasn’t that good Poppy’s performance was OUTSTANDING! She’s so underrated and wasted in cop shows. She could do so much better!

      I like Michelle but she’s way too skiny for the role!

  • calla

    This is absolutely STUNNING. I’m really looking forward to this film. Michelle Williams usually doesn’t disappoint.

  • googie

    I hope it’s great!

  • Geezee

    I’m looking forward to seeing this movie. She really looks like Marilyn. However, she is very thin and does not have Marilyn’s body. I wonder if she gained weight for the role.

    • cal

      Geezee” …..no, they just gave her some padding in necessary areas, from what I have read.

  • Amy

    I personally preferred the other one. I guess I’m not a fan of posters that just show the main actor’s face and pretty much nothing else. It seems too plain.

    • Xubirac
