No offense no one can be / play Marilyn Monroe well I’ve seen all what’s out there but #AnaDeArmas brought her role as #MarilynMonroe in #Blonde to another level idk what is it but the movie is gonna be iconic like it should be I’ll cherish it , Ana girl you made it
@netflix Whoa. This looks incredible *goosebumps* #BlondeOnNetflix #blonde #MarilynMonroe
#Blonde-I'm calling it now, this is going to be the movie that cements Ana de Armas as a transformative actor and one of the best working today! This looks absolutely phenomenal…
I'm firmly in the "Leave Marilyn Monroe alone" camp but Ana De Armas pretty and Blonde trailer pretty. #Blonde #BlondeOnNetflix
I cannot wait to see this film! I know it's controversial and people are foaming at the mouth over the rating, subject matter and the apparent audacity of a Latina actress portraying #MarilynMonroe but I for one will give this film a chance. It looks absolutely beautiful. #Blonde…
There’s so much more to look for in De Armas' performance other than the accent, especially given the source material of #Blonde. This is the natural reaction given the public's expectations from biopics tho (which this isn’t), in that they’d rather imitation over exploration.
Obsessed. Will watch immediately. #blonde #Netflix…

Fans are excited about the film. While some users mentioned that they do not believe a biopic on Marilyn Monroe should be made, they admitted that the trailer and Ana de Armas' look in the film are pretty impressive.
