Controversies onscreen (“Blonde”) and off (“Don’t Worry Darling”), plus new films in theaters and on demand.

“Blonde” arrives in theaters today and on Netflix next week on wings of hype and outrage. It’s not your typical movie-star biopic; in fact, it seems designed to infuriate those who most love Marilyn Monroe. Perverse, okay — but is it any good?
For Friday, a round-up of new movies in theaters and on demand, including “Don’t Worry Darling,” a thriller that has been more notable for the gossip offscreen than the movie onscreen.
