I also added the ‘Joan of Arc at the Stakepress release to our press archive. This is a quote from Marion Cotillard about the news (also see video below):

“It is a great joy for me to be part of this tremendous adventure of Jeanne d’Arc au bûcher staged by the inspired Côme de Bellescize. Sharing this experience with the New York Philharmonic and the great actors Éric Génovèse and Christian Gonon will be an amazing journey. I want to warmly thank Alan Gilbert and Matthew VanBesien for offering us such a great opportunity. I feel so lucky and I am looking forward to sharing this work, which is, at this point, one of my greatest experiences as an actress.”

Conductor Alan Gilbert calls her his hero and a brilliant actress and director Côme de Bellescize said that “it’s a great pleasure and honor to have the opportunity to work with Marion, especially for a play that has such meaning for her.”

The two times Marion Cotillard had taken on this role before were concert versions but this time it will be a staged version. Inspired by a gothic cathedral square Joan (Marion Cotillard) and the stake will be positioned on a platform in the middle of the orchestra. Côme de Bellescize has staged this version before, in 2012 in Japan.

Interestingly, in the notes for Côme de Bellescize’s recent play Amédée it says that he will not only recreate the 2012 staging of Jeanne au bûcher in New York but also in March 2015 in Paris – with Marion Cotillard. I can’t wait for more info!

‘Sorties prevues’ – Screencaptures & Video

As previously announced Marion Cotillard was the guest when Laurent Weil presented Trailers for upcoming movies on December 28, 2013. As it turned out the interview was conducted during the Marrakech Film Festival just after Marion Cotillard had presented ‘Public Enemies‘ on Jemaa El Fna square, an experience she’s always dreamed about ever since hearing other people talk about it when she came to the festival before.

Then she talked about ‘Terre des ours‘, she loves documentaries and was at first hesitant to accept being the voice because she usually prefers the visuals in documentaries to speak for themselves. But she really loves how ‘Terre des ours‘ shows a place of this world where nobody goes and these sublime animals that are adversely affected by humans. So if this movie moves just one person to learn more or to help preserve this world she’s happy. Laurent Weil joked that this would be the first movie her son could watch, Marion laughed but said that she sometimes thinks of how Johnny Depp’s career changed when he had kids and she sometimes would like to make a movie just for kids.

After a couple of trailers Marion Cotillard talked about her experience of shooting ‘Deux jours, une nuit‘ (Two Days, One Night) with the Dardenne brothers. The movie is similar to their previous films in tone and genre and it was one of Marion’s greatest experiences as an actress. Their movies have some of the strongest moments she has ever seen in films and so she wanted to ask them about everything. She would have done anything for them. But even though she loves working with great cineasts she wouldn’t say this is an important criteria since it’s just amazing to have the opportunity to go from one cinematic universe to another.

After some more trailers they talked about the upcoming ‘Macbeth‘, for which she was in full preparation even though having taken out time to be part of the jury at the Marrakech Film Festival. She repeated that she had always believed to be one day portraying Lady M after playing her at drama school, however she thought it would take place on stage and in French.

Later, Laurent Weil asked her about the lack of comedies on her CV. She said she loves comedies but doesn’t think she has achieved the level of authenticity necessary for comedies yet or that the little bit of comedy she’s done is any good. (Interestingly, they don’t mention her cameo appearance in ‘Anchorman 2‘ even though later on the trailer was shown. People have praised her cameo by the way.)

Marion Cotillard promotes ‘Land of the Bears’ on Disney Channel

Marion Cotillard promotes ‘Land of the Bears’ on Disney Channel

I don’t think we already hava a news announcement about this but Marion Cotillard is narrating ‘Terre des ours‘ (Land of the Bears), the first documentary to be presented in cinemas in 3D. It’s being released in France on February 26. Visit the official Homepage for more Information and to view some pictures.

Set in the wilderness of the Kamchatka Peninsula, the land of legends and the kingdom of wild brown bears, we follow the daily adventures of five wild brown bears. A mother bear and her two young ones, an adolescent male and an experienced male leader. Each of them have their own concerns and preoccupations. The mother must feed and protect her cubs, whilst all they want is to explore the big wide world out there, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead of them. The adolescent is coming of age and must find his place in the adult world, whereas the experienced male must constantly defend his supremacy and impose his strength.

Marion Cotillard answered some questions posted on Disney Channel.fr during their program Spot Mag last Wednesday.

What is your favourite animal and why?
Oh, this is difficult because I love lots of animals. So to start, I love elephants. Because I watched many documentaries about elephants and because their ability to show emotion really moves me. They cry and really display emotion in a way that we humans can see.

I want to become an actress. Do you have an advice?
I recommend to take your time, to work, to experiment, I don’t know how old you are but to live your life and to live all the experiences that nourish the actress you will be.

What was your biggest adventure when you were a child?
I was born in Paris, I lived in a city in the suburbs. So when I moved to the countryside with my parents it was really a very big adventure. I moved from the 18th floor of a block of flats to a country house that had a huge garden with a river at the end. This has really enriched my life. It’s true that my life in the city has done that as well, but it really was a shock and a big adventure.

How does it feel to be famous?
It’s quite a peculiar thing, maybe I will never fully get used to it. Additionally, celebrity today sometimes comes from nowhere, from nothing. Someone can be famous for being on television etc. This is dangerous. But my celebrity also comes from the fact that people have seen a part of my life when I was telling a story. So my celebrity allows me to continue to tell stories. Anyway, I can’t complain.

Bonus questions

What was your dream job while growing up?
I wanted to be so many things that I decided acting was the best way to experience many different jobs.

What are your passions?
I love music, I can’t imagine my life without music. It’s my dream to be able to play an instrument very well. This is something I can’t at the Moment and it’s frustrating. I also love forests and nature. It’s one of the reasons I agreed to be the voice of ‘Land of the bears‘.

What made you want to be in cinema?
I come from a family of actors and storytelling and acting has always been part of my life. What made me want to be in cinema is because I really admire this art form and I used to watch a lot of films by Charlie Chaplin or the Marx Brothers. So all of this made me want to be in cinema.

Marion in magazines 2013 – early 2014

Marion in magazines 2013 – early 2014

2013 saw Marion Cotillard grace the cover of several French and international magazines. The release of two of her movies in Europe, ‘Blood Ties’ and ‘The Immigrant’, first in Cannes and then in the whole of France later in the year, earned her some attention from the media. While most of the coverage was in France, Marion was also on the cover of US ELLE in 2013, coinciding with the award she received from the magazine in late October.

We have finished adding all the scans from 2013 which featured brand new shoots and interviews.

With ‘The Immigrant’ having been released in Italy yesterday, the Italian press has been featuring Marion as well, providing us with these early 2014 scans from Gioia magazine and quick appearances in newspapers.

Both of Marion’s films should be released worldwide throughout the first half of this year.

Portraits of the leading ladies of film in Bafta exhibition

Portraits of the leading ladies of film in Bafta exhibition

They are some of the most glamorous and successful leading ladies of film.

Marion Cotillard, Nicole Kidman, and Scarlett Johansson are among stars snapped by London photographer Andy Gotts for a project started by Bafta eight years ago to record all living performers ever nominated for its movie honours.

The portraits are among 100 at an exhibition opening on Monday ahead of the Bafta awards on February 16. It also features Juliette Binoche, Jodie Foster, Al Pacino, Johnny Depp, Robert De Niro, and Clint Eastwood. Gotts told how he was initially given just 12 minutes with Brad Pitt on the set of Troy: “But he said, ‘Take as long as you want.’ One and a half hours later we were arm-wrestling.” Pitt handed Gotts his phone with George Clooney on the line. Clooney invited the photographer to his villa in Italy, where Gotts found him feeding the ducks on Lake Como.

Gotts, 42, has taken pictures of more than half of about 800 candidates.

The exhibition, Behind The Mask, runs from January 20-February 7 at Somerset House, before a smaller display at Bafta HQ in Piccadilly. Limited edition prints are on sale to support Bafta’s charitable work.

BAFTA will project every image from the series onto the façade of its headquarters at 195 Piccadilly, London during the weekend of the EE British Academy Film Awards. Go the Exhibition Homepage.
