According to Universal France, Marion Cotillard and Guillaume Canet will lend their voices to the villains Scarlett and Herb Overkill in the upcoming animation film Minions. Sandra Bullock and Jon Hamm give those characters their voices in the English spoken version. The film will release July 10 in the United States and July 8 in France.
I found a trailer for the French version with Marion’s character in it. She has disguised her voice a bit but you can hear it here and then when she speaks… I think?
Marion Cotillard has spent the past two days in Manila, in the Philippines accompanying French President François Hollande in a visit to the country to support actions against climate change. Marion has since long been an activist for climate change and has worked with Greenpeace for a few years now. She joined the efforts of Greenpeace in Philippines and spoke in support of better measures against climate change and for environment protection.
We want to share our thoughts on the issues of climate change. It’s not just the climate change but the survival of the millions of people on this planet. [The] Philippines of course, is one of the first countries which are aware that something should be done.
I have added photos of the event to the gallery:
There’s also a video of Marion’s speech on Thursday night. The video is unfortunately in French, I will try to translate it as soon as possible:
I just found out that Marion’s performance in Barcelona of Jeanne au Bûcher (Joan at the Stake) is going to be released on DVD on March 10. Although the video was released at the time, this is a great opportunity to watch and rewatch Marion’s outstanding performance as Joan of Arc.
Pre order the DVD on Amazon France.
Marion has several performances scheduled as Joan of Arc this year. She performed in Monaco and Toulouse on the 8th and 14th of February, respectively. She will resume her performances in Paris on the 4th and 5th of March and then go on to perform in New York City in June. If you can, don’t miss it. It’s a brilliant performance. I’ll be attending the one on the 4th in Paris and will report back!
Marion Cotillard has reportedly signed up to a role in the new Justin Kurzel production. The film, Assassin’s Creed is an adaptation of the Ubisoft video game released in November last year, and which has sold 91 million units so far.
They’re keeping under wraps the role that Cotillard plays, but she’s a versatile actress who won the Oscar for La Vie En Rose, and also played an action role inThe Dark Knight Rises. Like Fassbender, her role is meant to span multiple films if this one scores and becomes a franchise.
Marion will team up with Michael Fassbender for the second time, as the two have worked in Kurzel’s previous production, Macbeth. Production will start in the fall and the release is scheduled December 2016.
The Academy Award nominations were just announced live and Marion Cotillard was nominated in the Best Actress category for her portrail of Sandra in Two Days, One Night. This is Marion’s second Academy Award nomination after her nomination and win in 2008 for La Môme! Congratulations, Marion!
