‘Rust & Bone’ Trailer – Lady Dior Documentary Teaser
There’s an awesome new UK trailer for ‘Rust and Bone‘ (De rouille et d’os). In my opinion it captures perfectly the essence of the movie and gives you a taste of how visceral & powerful it really is.

La Journée des oubliés des vacances
Marion Cotillard was in La Rochelle (France) yesterday. She joined her friend Maud Fontenoy who with her foundation – of which Marion is the godmother – organized a huge event for kids between 9 and 12 from all over France who had never seen the sea and never been on a boat before. For 30 years the Public Aid Association in France is organizing “The Days for the Ones Forgotten by the Holidays” (La Journée des oubliés des vacances). This year La Rochelle hosted the 4 day event and joined forces with Maud Fontenoy Fondation. The activities included visits to the aquarium as well as to the maritime museum and swimming.
On Monday, Marion joined Maud on her boat Tahia – with which she had sailed around the world – and together with about 50 boats from people supporting the action they took the 300 kids out to sea. NewCastWire, BFMTV.com and TF1 reported about it. And here’s an article from SudOuest.

‘Miss Dior’ goes to Hollywood
The new campaign of ‘Miss Dior’ has hit and this time it is Hollywood as the location.
L.A. WOMAN: Marion Cotillard continues to rack up the air miles in her role as a Christian Dior spokesmodel. The Oscar-winning actress — who has already been pictured in Paris, New York, Shanghai and London for the French brand — traveled to Los Angeles recently to pose for photographer Steven Klein at a groovy house by architect John Lautner. She is seen clutching a Lady Dior bag in multicolored crocodile, with a swimming pool and the Hollywood hills in the background. Giovanna Battaglia styled the ad, with Julien d’Ys on hair and Christophe Danchaud doing makeup. The campaign is slated to break in the International Herald Tribune on Nov. 14 and the Financial Times on Nov. 19. French weeklies and December monthlies are to follow.

Mostly ‘Contagion’ Updates
While it is as of yet unclear whether Marion Cotillard will head to Venice for Saturday’s world premiere of ‘Contagion‘ before taping her talk show appearances it seems that the John Cameron Mitchell-directed new Dior commercial is being filmed this week in Los Angeles (source: Ceasar Fernando Barajas). [edit:] According to Terry Mcshane and Alexa Michelle they’re filming today.
If you want to look at a scene from ‘The Dark Knight Rises‘ that Marion shot with Gary Oldman in Pitsburgh before finishing her filming and going to LA a bit over a week ago watch this video on YouTube, courtesy of Nickolay. While it is shaky you still get a good look at Marion.
It’s been announced today that ‘Contagion‘ will open the Zurich Film Festival in Switzerland on September 22, 2011. Unfortunately, I will not be able to go (source: Hollywood Reporter).
I added some screencaptures and clips that were released on the weekend and mentioned in a previous update. Enjoy!
