The latest clip from the upcoming Monroe biopic features Williams channeling the starlet with song and dance.

The Weinstein Company's Marilyn Monroe biopic, My Week With Marilyn, arrives in theaters Nov. 23.

And before the official release, the promos are clearly playing up star Michelle Williams' obvious knack for stepping into the famous actress' shoes.

The latest clip, first posted by Moviefone, features Williams in full Monroe regalia, singing and dancing to the Irving Berlin standard "Heat Wave."

Monroe most famously performed "Heat Wave" in There's No Business Like Show Business, where she took a vaudevillian stage decked out in a Caribbean motif.

My Week With Marilyn finds Monroe in a slightly different scenario, with Williams darting across a stage in a sheer dress with two polo-clad dancers.

The film, which also stars Kenneth Branagh, Eddie Redmayne and Judi Dench, follows a moment in the starlet's life where she briefly escaped production of The Prince and the Showgirl to spend a week in the English countryside with the film's third assistant director.
