The Weinstein Company Reschedules MY WEEK WITH MARILYN for Thanksgiving Weekend

     October 12, 2011


If you are looking for major release date news, I’ll direct you today’s earlier post on Fox’s schedule for six upcoming projects.  If you just want to find out when you can see My Week With Marilyn, you’re in the right place.  Deadline reports The Weinstein Co. has rescheduled the Marilyn Monroe biopic from November 4 to November 23.  The studio is reportedly encouraged enough by the strong reception at the New York Film Festival to throw it into the Thanksgiving fray with The Muppets, Hugo, Arthur Christmas, and Piranha 3DD, not to mention fellow TWC release The Artist.

Michelle Williams, Kenneth Branagh, Dominic Cooper, Julia Ormond, Judi Dench, Emma Watson, and Eddie Redmayne star in My Week With Marilyn.  Hit the jump for the official synopsis.

In the early summer of 1956, 23 year-old Colin Clark (Eddie Redmayne), just down from Oxford and determined to make his way in the film business, worked as a lowly assistant on the set of ‘The Prince and the Showgirl’. The film that famously united Sir Laurence Olivier (Kenneth Branagh) and Marilyn Monroe (Michelle Williams), who was also on honeymoon with her new husband, the playwright Aurthur Miller (Dougray Scott).

Nearly 40 years on, his diary account The Prince, the Showgirl and Me was published, but one week was missing and this was published some years later as My Week with Marilyn – this is the story of that week.  When Arthur Miller leaves England, the coast is clear for Colin to introduce Marilyn to some of the pleasures of British life; an idyllic week in which he escorted a Monroe desperate to get away from her retinue of Hollywood hangers-on and the pressures of work.
