Michelle Williams as Marilyn in “My Week” poster – AWARDS ALLEY

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Everything we are hearing regarding Michelle Williams’ performance as iconic blonde bombshell Marilyn Monroe in Simon Curtis’s “My Week with Marilyn” confirms that the young actress has yet another awards-worthy turn under her belt. Williams continues to charm the Academy, which has nominated her for “Brokeback Mountain” and last year’s “Blue Valentine.” Will they recognize her again for playing a tragic starlet with a checkered past?

We’ll soon see, as “Marilyn” prepares a fall film festival run that will take it through the New York Film Festival (but not Toronto, sadly, where I was hoping to catch it) as it leads up to its Nov. 4 release.

The film takes place on the set of “The Prince and the Showgirl,” where Monroe reportedly locked horns with Sir Laurence Olivier (Kenneth Branagh). Curtis has recruited Emma Watson, Dominic Cooper, Toby Jones and Julia Ormond for his drama, which angles to show the behind-the-scenes machinations of Old Hollywood.

This morning, we have a new-but-vintage poster for “Marilyn,” which gives us a peek at Williams in cover girl mode. “Marilyn” could be special. We’re eager to see what Curtis and crew have in store.
