Michelle Williams in full “Marilyn” trailer – AWARDS ALLEY

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Audiences will get their first look at Simon Curtis’s “My Week With Marilyn,” with Oscar nominee Michelle Williams as screen legend Marilyn Monroe, when it screens as the Centerpiece at the New York Film Festival on Oct. 9 in the Alice Tully Hall. Given the fact that the awards hopeful opens wider on Nov. 4, I’m a little surprised we’ve yet to see a full trailer for “Marilyn.”

Well, that ends now.

A clip has been posted on Yahoo Movies. I’m waiting in a proper embed, but for now, you can view it here:

It’s pretty great. A series of fleeting snapshots that set up the celebrity (Williams), the lover (Eddie Redmayne) who connected her to a disappearing reality, and the actor (Kenneth Branagh) put out by both of them. The clip kdoes an excellent job teasing Curtis’s work. Now I’m dying to see it.

Williams already scooped up her first trophy for her work as Monroe. She’ll be honored as the Hollywood Actress Award at this year’s Hollywood Film Awards in Beverly Hills. Could that be her first step on the long road to Oscar?
