Watch 'The Insider' tonight

No idea what they will be airing but the official ‘NineTwitter account just said that we should tune in to ‘The Insider’ on CBS tonight at 7:00 PM EST / 7:30 PM. Maybe a second trailer?!

Also, if anyone could record it for me as I (and many other Marion fans) don’t live in the US that be wonderful! Thanks.

'The Last Flight' World Premiere

This year’s American Film Market will take place November 4 – 11, 2009 in Santa Monica, California, US. During that time a total of 445 films will be screened, many of which world premieres. Among those is Marion’s much awaited first leading role and her first French film since ‘La Vie en Rose‘ in ‘The Last Flight‘ (‘Le dernier vol’). It will be screened at the AMC Loews Broadway #3 cinema on the following days:

Thursday, November 5 – 11:00 AM
Sunday, November 8th – 11:00 AM

The American Film Market (AFM) is a marketplace where producers and sales companies license films to distributors. The AFM is not a festival. As far as I was able to see from their website the event is not open to the general public. As Marion will likely be stationed in that part of the world at the time to film ‘Inception‘ I’m wondering if she’ll attend?

In any case, the info page for ‘The Last Flight‘ tells us that the movie has a runtime of 98 minutes and provides us (finally) with an official English synopsis:

Marie, an obstinate, adventuresome, young pilot, sets out to track down her lover, who has vanished in the Sahara during a record flight attempt from London to Cape Town. Her unexpected arrival turns life upside down for a remote French Camel Corps troop that is already preoccupied with the stirrings of a Tuareg uprising.

Antoine, a captain in conflict with his superior officers, decides to help Marie with her desperate quest across a grandiose and hostile sea of sand.

In the oppressive heat, their desire to survive slowly binds them in a disturbing and unexpected love story.

Let’s hope all goes well for ‘The Last Flight‘ and some US distributor picks it up so that it will find its way to US theatres soon!

Marion not involved with 'Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque'

As we previously reported Marion was supposed to provide a design for the benefit of Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque – the organisation helping children from all backgrounds getting much needed heart surgery. However, she was very sad to cancel her involvement as her contract to Dior doesn’t allow her to lend her name to another label (the project also involves fashion house Maje). In her place, Guillaume Canet will sign a piece that will be auctioned off at the end of the planned exhibition.
