What a day! Both the new poster and trailer for ‘Inception‘ feature Marion. Not only does the concept as well as the visual style of the movie want me to see the movie right away but also Marion looks gorgeous! I am waiting with adding screencaptures of the trailer until the official HD trailer gets released (reportedly on Monday).
Deadline Hollywood reports that last Monday a screening of ‘Inception‘ was held for cast and their reps:
And even the most cynical people who usually hate everything were knocked out. “It was beautiful.” Lots of gushing about the “incredible work” by Leonardo DiCaprio, Marion Cotillard, and Ellen Page.
Sci-Fi Action. Acclaimed filmmaker Christopher Nolan directs an international cast in an original sci-fi actioner that travels around the globe and into the intimate and infinite world of dreams. Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) is a skilled thief, the absolute best in the dangerous art of extraction, stealing valuable secrets from deep within the subconscious during the dream state, when the mind is at its most vulnerable. Cobb’s rare ability has made him a coveted player in this treacherous new world of corporate espionage, but it has also made him an international fugitive and cost him everything he has ever loved. Now Cobb is being offered a chance at redemption. One last job could give him his life back but only if he can accomplish the impossible–inception. Instead of the perfect heist, Cobb and his team of specialists have to pull off the reverse: their task is not to steal an idea but to plant one. If they succeed, it could be the perfect crime. But no amount of careful planning or expertise can prepare the team for the dangerous enemy that seems to predict their every move. An enemy that only Cobb could have seen coming. This summer, your mind is the scene of the crime.
Marion Cotillard has so far been suspiciously absent from all publicity material. But LA Times author Geoff Boucher said he didn’t mention one character because his/her plot involved a major twist (source: Nolan Fans). Interestingely enough, Marion Cotillard whose name gets top billing wasn’t mentioned in his article. Also director Christopher Nolan debuted some footage at WonderCon early April and said about Marion:
“She plays an extremely complicated individual. She gives a fascinating performance.”

The new trailer will reportedly be shown before ‘Iron Man 2‘ in cinemas later this week. According to rumours on IMDb it will feature Marion.
After last year, Marion Cotillard again attended the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Annual Costume Institute Gala Benefit yesterday – which opened the new exhibition American Women: Fashioning a National Identity. The event was hosted by Patrick Robinson of The Gap, and co-hosted by Vogue editor Anna Wintour and Oprah Winfrey
Marion represented Christian Dior and apparently also was a member of the Benefit Committee (source).
Both her choice of dress (Dior Haute Couture) and style received praise from fashion websites and put her on their lists of “Best Dressed”:
Long metallic dresses were distinctive standouts for Vogue’s Anna Wintour (Chanel Haute Couture), Anne Hathaway (Valentino), and Oscar-winner Marion Cotillard (Christian Dior).
JENNIFER Lopez, Marion Cotillard and Anne Hathaway ruled the red carpet at last night’s Met Costume Institute Gala in glittering, princess prom dresses. Jennifer Lopez, Anne Hathaway, Marion Cotillard wowed at the fashionable bash in glittering, sequin-encrusted gowns, each teaming their look with big jewels, smoky eyes and styled locks.
First up, the flapper girls. Jessica Alba, Marion Cotillard and Kate Bosworth brought some 20′s chic to the ball with their precision waves, even SJP’s side swept hair was Marcel waved and the flower gave a nod to Hawaii.

Marion Cotillard herself said the following about the American style at the event:
There’s a sense of richness that you have here on so many levels. You have a good mix of the high and the low.
Marion also attended the after party and was pictured with January Jones, Gisele Bundchen, Bar Rafaeli and Harvey Weinstein. According to Popsugar she took off her shoes after all the dancing got to be too much.
