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.”

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.
