Watch: First Trailer for Michelle Williams in 'My Week with Marilyn'
"First love is such sweet despair." Are you ready to finally meet Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe? The Weinstein Company has unveiled the official trailer for My Week with Marilyn, starring Williams as Monroe on her visit to London in the 50s to film The Prince and the Showgirl. This is being positioned as an Oscar heavyweight with some great performances, including from Eddie Redmayne as Colin Clark, Judi Dench as Sybil Thorndike, Kenneth Branagh as Laurence Olivier. For those that though Williams wasn't right, I'm curious to hear a reaction! I'm impressed, this looks beautiful, and I'm not just talking about her.

In addition to Williams as Monroe, the cast includes Eddie Redmayne, Kenneth Branagh as Sir Laurence Olivier, Dougray Scott as Arthur Miller, Dominic Cooper as Milton Greene, Emma Watson, as well as Julia Ormond. My Week with Marilyn chronicles a week in the life of Marilyn where she escapes the shackles of her Hollywood career and embraces British life with Colin Clark, who was assigned by Olivier to keep an eye on her while filming The Prince and the Showgirl. Directed by Simon Curtis (of British TV movies) and produced by David Parfitt, the movie is based on Clark's diaries and was adapted for the screen by Adrian Hodges (BBC's "Primeval"). TWC will be bringing this to limited theaters starting November 4th this fall.
