Netflix has finally released the trailer for the highly-anticipated, Marilyn Monroe biopic Blonde, starring Knives Out and The Gray Man's Ana de Armas.

And it has given us a glimpse at Ant-Man's Bobby Cannavale as baseball star Joe DiMaggio and 's Adrien Brody as playwright Arthur Miller, both of whom were married to Marilyn at different points in their lifetime.

Based on the novel by Joyce Carol Oates, Blonde tells the fictionalised story of the ever iconic actress, following her journey from Norma Jeane Baker, which was her real name, to Marilyn Monroe, the most sought-after celebrity in the world. The film is directed by Andrew Dominik.

The trailer opens with chants of Marilyn, as de Armas tries to practice Monroe's signature smile in front of a mirror. We then see her walk out onto the red carpet to greet the throngs of fans and journalists waiting to greet her.

Cannavale's DiMaggio then asks her: "Where did you get your start?"

When Marilyn asks him to elaborate, he says: "In movies."

To which she replies: "I guess I was discovered."

As we see Marilyn's astronomical rise to superstardom, and what was really going on behind the scenes, including the inception of the iconic flying skirt photo, we hear de Armas in a voiceover saying: "I know you're supposed to get used to it, but I just can't. I've played Marilyn Monroe, Marilyn Monroe, Marilyn Monroe. I can't face doing another scene with Marilyn Monroe."

We finally get to see a shot of Adrien Brody as Arthur Miller and more glimpses of Marilyn and her life when she was married to these two men, as she continues: "Marilyn doesn't exist. When I come out of my dressing room, I'm Norma Jeane. I'm still her when the camera is rolling."

The trailer ends with a chilling shot of Marilyn mouthing "help me" as de Armas says: "Marilyn Monroe exists only on the screen."

Blonde is released on Netflix on September 23.
