The Motion Picture Association officially assigned the upcoming Marilyn Monroe biography on Netflix an official NC-17 rating for “sexual material,” making it the first Netflix Original to get the uncommon adults-only classification.
This year, Netflix will release Blonde, starring Ana de Armas (Deep Water) as the legendary actress and pinup model. Director/writer Andrew Dominik earlier predicted that the movie would receive an NC-17 rating, telling Screen Rant, “It’s a difficult movie.
If the audience dislikes it, then that is entirely their fault. It’s not a campaign for office. It’s kind of what you want—an NC-17 movie about Marilyn Monroe. I want to witness the Marilyn Monroe story in its NC-17 adaptation.
Blonde’s development began in 2010, and the film’s production started in August 2019. It appears that primary photography is finished, and it is currently in post-production now that we know the release year. Here is everything we currently know about Blonde on Netflix.
Blonde, a film adaptation of Joyce Carol Oates’s 2000 book of the same name, follows Norma Jeane Mortenson on her path to become Marilyn Monroe, a Hollywood icon.
Fans of the diva are aware that despite her life appearing to be picture-perfect, Marilyn struggled with abuse, relationships, drug usage, and other troubles. When Marilyn was only 36 years old in 1962, she was discovered dead from a barbiturate overdose.
The film, which was partly shot in black-and-white and partly in colour, will analyse Marilyn’s life in front of the camera while also showcasing her private day-to-day with ex-husbands Joe DiMaggio, an American baseball player, and Arthur Miller, a well-known playwright. This is evident in the recently released trailer.

According to its description, Blonde is a biopic of the late American icon Marilyn Monroe. The 2000 novel by Joyce Carol Oates, a 700-page dramatised account of Monroe’s life that The New Yorker once named “the ultimate study of American stardom,” served as the inspiration for the film.
Blonde’s Netflix summary reads as follows:
In Andrew Dominik’s film adaptation of the same-titled book by Joyce Carol Oates, Ana de Armas plays the golden bombshell. The film “boldly reimagines the personal history of Marilyn Monroe, the most well-known sex icon in the world.
Through the contemporary prism of celebrity culture, the movie tells a fictional portrayal of a model, actress, and singer in the 1950s and 1960s. Adrien Brody, Julianne Nicholson, and Bobby Cannavale all appear.
Director on getting R-Rated for Blonde
When making Blonde, director Andrew Dominik believed he was entering R-rated territory, as he admitted to Vulture in May 2022.
“I was taken aback. Yeah. Regarding the movie’s NC-17 rating, Dominik commented, “I thought we’d stayed within the lines. “However, I believe that if a group of men and women are discussing sexual conduct in a boardroom, the males may be concerned about what the ladies may think. Just a strange period, really.
It’s not like how blissful sexuality is portrayed. It’s representations of uncertain circumstances. And don’t you believe that American sexual behaviour is particularly peculiar? I have no idea why. More porn is produced by them than by anyone else in the world.

The Blonde Cast
Given that this is a made-up biopic, the casting must be precise. And it appears that the filmmakers succeeded in achieving that goal. Ana de Armas is a Cuban/Spanish actress, making her the last person you would imagine being cast as Monroe.
However, based on the web photos and videos, it appears the casting director got it just right. The movie’s characters are a mix of genuine people and made-up people.
The following actors play the genuine characters:
- Ana De Armas as Marilyn Monroe
- Caspar Phillipson as John F. Kennedy
- Xavier Samuel as Charlie Chaplin
- Adrien Brody as Arthur Miller
- Toby Huss as Allan Snyder
- David Warshovsky as Darryl Zanuck
- Evan Williams as Edward G. Robinson Jr.
- Bobby Cannavale as Joe DiMaggio
- Julianne Nicholson as Gladys Pearl Baker
- Michael Masini as Tony Curtis
- Luke Whoriskey as James Dean
When does Blonde coming on Netflix?
Blonde will be released this year, according to the list of movies that Netflix will be carrying in 2022. On June 16, the streamer announced its precise U.S. release date: September 23, although it has been moved up a few days to September 28, 2022.
The Blonde Premiere
The film will be screened at many film festivals, including Cannes. We anticipate the general release to occur a few months after the festival circuit is through, as it is typically a sign that the studio wants the film to be submitted for Oscar consideration.
After September, a late-year release would not be unexpected because the studio would have evaluated the critical reception and would feel more secure in making it available to the general public.

How and where to watch Blonde?
On September 28, Netflix will release the complete first season of Blonde.
However, the movie will first screen at the 2022 Venice Film Festival, which is scheduled to take place this year from August 31 to September 10.
Interestingly, in order to be taken into consideration for a potential nomination for the upcoming Oscars, which will screen in March 2023, Blonde will need to provide moviegoers with a brief run in theatres. There is yet no formal statement on how that will operate.
