"All people ever see is Marilyn Monroe," says Michelle Williams as the titular Hollywood icon in the first trailer for 'My Week With Marilyn.' For Williams's Oscar chances, this is a good thing. A tricky role if there ever was one, the two-time Oscar nominee seems more than up to the task of embodying Ms. Monroe in the first trailer for the new film. Those eyes! That come-hither look! The little-girl-lost attitude! Toss in bonus points for not overly breathing-out Monroe's signature voice, and presumed Best Actress frontrunners Meryl Streep and Glenn Close should have some stiff competition. Watch ahead.

Based on the memoir by Colin Clark (played onscreen by newcomer Eddie Redmayne) about the making of 'The Princess and The Frog' with Monroe and Laurence Olivier (Kenneth Branagh), 'My Week With Marilyn' debuts at the New York Film Festival before opening in November. Check back to Moviefone for more on the film in the coming week.
