Blonde stars Ana de Armas ( Deep Water), who is the pinup model and iconic actress. The film will be available on Netflix this year. Andrew Dominik, the director/writer, previously predicted that the film would receive an NC-17 rating.
He told “It’s a challenging movie. It’s up to the audience to decide if they don’t like it. It is not running for public office. It’s an NC-17 film about Marilyn Monroe. You can do what you want.

Blonde Release Date
The movie list that Netflix will stream in 2022 shows that Blonde will release this year. On June 16, the streamer announced its release date as September 23, 2022. asked Andrew Dominik director if Netflix was concerned about the film. He replied, “They’re spending $400 million for movies. It’s a $22 million movie and it won’t break the bank for Netflix.
They want to make sure they have a marketing plan before they roll it out. Next, we need to decide how it should be distributed. It won’t be released until September. It’s not something we should be discussing. [Laughs] Everyone will be tired of hearing about it by the time blonde is out. Blonde will be a biopic about the late American celebrity Marilyn Monroe. The movie is based upon Joyce Carol Oates’ 2000 novel. It is a fictionalized 700-page account of Monroe’s life The New Yorker once called “the definitive analysis of American celebrity.”
Director Andrew Dominik said to in May 2022 that he believed he was playing in R-rated territory while making Blonde. “I was shocked. Yeah. Dominik stated that he thought the film was within the NC-17 ratings. But I believe that if there are a lot of women and men in a boardroom discussing sexual behavior, then maybe the men will be concerned about the opinions of the women.
It’s a strange time. It is not a depiction of happy homosexuality. These are depictions of situations that can be confusing. You’d be surprised at how strange Americans can be when it comes sexual behavior. I don’t understand why. They produce more porn than any other person in the world.”
