‘The Immigrant’ US Release & Tons of HQ Stills

‘The Immigrant’ US Release & Tons of HQ Stills

There’s finally news about an US release for James Gray’s ‘The Immigrant‘ starring Marion Cotillard. It is no longer going to be released by Radius/TWC (which would probably have meant straight-to-VOD) but by The Weinstein Company itself as originally announced. Starting with a limited release in New York and Los Angeles – with plans to expand later on – ‘The Immigrant‘ will be released in US theatres on May 2 16, 2014 (source).

Along with this news I added a ton of gorgeous HQ stills of Marion Cotillard as Ewa Cybulski – bringing the total count up to 143 (!) – as well as two new pictures from the set. Enjoy!

Marion Cotillard’s upcoming movie by the famous Dardenne brothers ‘Deux jours, une nuit‘ (Two Days, One Night) has a release date: it will be released in France on May 21, 2014 (source). This makes it very likely that the movie will indeed have its premiere during the Cannes Film Festival. Along with this news we also get three gorgeous HQ images of Marion Cotillard as Sandra.

She and Jim Carrey are participating in the international news teams battle with their “incredibly polite Canadian news team”. Marion Cotillard’s newsanchor is from French speaking Quebec News – “the real voice of Canada”.

Marion Cotillard joined the Tiger Manifesto

Marion Cotillard joined the Tiger Manifesto

Marion Cotillard signed Greenpeace’s Tiger Manifesto:

“The thought of tigers becoming extinct is simply unbearable. Man has always fought for territories, now we must come together and fight for the tigers. We have the power to influence the way the products we consume are made. We have the power to protect the forests and the tigers. Please use this power now, join me and sign the Tiger Manifesto! ”
– Marion Cotillard

Greenpeace Tiger Manifesto

I’m fearless for forests! I want the products I use to be free from tiger extinction. Clearing their homes to make way for palm oil plantations in Indonesia must stop, especially when there are better solutions.

I look after myself and I want to know what’s in my products. Don’t make me part of the Sumatran tigers’ extinction.

Yes! I want the products I love to be tiger and forest friendly.
• There are solutions that don’t involve forest destruction. We want clean palm oil and we ask that our favourite brands listen to our voices.
• We believe immediate action must be taken to stop habitat destruction finding its way into the products we love.
• We have the right to know if our favourite products are linked to tiger extinction.

‘Macbeth’ started filming

‘Macbeth’ started filming

Studiocanal and Film4 announced yesterday the start of principal photography on See-Saw Films’ production of ‘Macbeth‘. The film will shoot for seven weeks in Scotland and England.

We learn that in addition to Marion Cotillard and Michael Fassbender the film also stars Paddy Considine, David Thewlis, Sean Harris, Jack Reynor and Elizabeth Debicki. Director of photography is Adam Arkapaw (Animal Kingdom, Snowtown), production designer is Fiona Crombie (Snowtown, Top Of The Lake). Costumes are designed by Academy-Award winner Jacqueline Durran (Atonement, Tinker Taylor Soldier Spy), make-up and hair designer is Academy-Award winner Jenny Shircore (The Invisible Woman, My Life With Marilyn). The screenplay was written by Jacob Koskoff and Todd Louiso.

Studiocanal will distribute Macbeth in the UK, France & Germany and is handling International Sales. The Weinstein Company will distribute in the US. Macbeth is a See-Saw Films production in association with DMC Film, Anton Capital Entertainment S.C.A. and Creative Scotland.

And this is the official synopsis:

Macbeth is the story of a fearless warrior and inspiring leader brought low by ambition and desire. A thrilling interpretation of the dramatic realities of the times and a truthful reimagining of what wartime must have really been like for one of Shakespeare’s most famous and compelling characters, a story of all-consuming passion and ambition set in war torn 11th Century Scotland.

Scotsman reports that filming will take place in several spectacular locations in the north of the Isle of Skye in Scotland as well as in Hankley Common in Surrey, Cambridge and Oxford in England. Arts agency Creative Scotland supports the movie with £200,000. It’s chief executive Janet Archer said:

We are delighted to support Justin Kurzel’s film, working in partnership with See-Saw, Film4, StudioCanal and the entire film-making team to produce this adaptation of Shakespeare’s Macbeth with Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard – arguably two of the more most inspiring and daring actors of our time. The Scottish film industry works hard to promote Scotland’s world-class talent, film locations, facilities and services. We encourage the international film industry to come and film in Scotland and it’s great to see productions of this stature making use of everything we have to offer.

According to The Foraging Photographer they’ve been building a film set at Hankley over the past couple of weeks. On exactly the site of Skyfall Lodge they are creating a medieval village with a little church. The Surrey heathland is standing in for Scotland again, and the filmmakers have been working hard to create that authentic foggy look with their smoke machines. There’s also a short video of them filming crowd fight scenes. Apparently, there was lots of smoke, shouting and the clash of swords. Very atmospheric with the sun occasionally sending shafts of light through the hazy fog of smoke. Visit The Foraging Photographer to check out some photos and the video.

UK tabloid Express reports a source as saying: “Marion worked with a voice coach to learn the [Scottish] accent but it drove her crazy and she feared she would ruin the film. The idea of Lady Macbeth speaking with a French accent is entirely legitimate, taking into account the French-Scottish alliance of that time.”
