NEW CLIP: Michelle Williams Sings Marilyn

Hey there

In this new clip from My Week With Marilyn, the upcoming November 23 film about the tense interaction between Lawrence Olivier and Marilyn Monroe during production of The Prince and the Showgirl, we finally get a taste of Michelle Williams channeling the icon as she performs “Heat Wave.”

While the shaking of her derriere and her on-stage moves are pitch perfect, we can’t help but be drawn away from Williams to the two male backup dancers, one climbing and bouncing on the others back as they presumably swoon over Monroe.

The more we see of this movie, scheduled to open later this month, the more we think Michelle better start making some room on her mantle for an Academy Award.
