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 Cotillard's early TV Appearances

As you may have noticed Sofia came on board just before the Cannes Film Festival to help keep the site stay updated. She’s been doing a great job with adding all the latest info, HQ event pics & magazine scans. Not only that but she also added new HQ pictures of Marion Cotillard’s early TV appearances. Thank you! Be sure to check them out!

On December 28, 2002 Marion Cotillard appeared on the first edition of French TV Show “Défis des stars” (Challenges for stars). Directed by Pascal Duchêne and moderated by Nikos Aliagas and Star Academy finalist Eva 20 brave actors, singers and comedians faced challenges that revolved around the circus such as animal training, juggling, magic and cabaret acts. Marion performed using a magic wand. Judging by the screencaps by Erik she was also an assistant in one of the magic acts. Fellow participants included her co-stars from ‘Taxi‘ (Samy Nacéri performed with 4 tigres from Circus Yann Gruss and Frédéric Diefenthal with bears from Circus Phénix) and ‘Les jolies choses‘ (Ophélie Winter performed on aerial silk and Titoff in another act). Elie Semoun, Véronique Genest, Gérard Jugnot, L5, Sophie Ellis Bextor, Grégori Baquet, Anthony Kavanagh, Patrick Timsit and Pascal Sellem were also part of the show.

Moderator Nikos said in advance: “I don’t know whether it will work for viewers. But I think it’s very nice to see the stars in different roles, to see them in burlesque, funny or dangerous situations. There will be music, entertainment, it will be a party. It’s the end of the year, so we will finish it in a good mood, with completely original and magical images.” And they succeeded for the newspaper Le Parisien later called it an original evening.

Does anybody have videos of any of the shows we’ve added pictures of – or of Marion Cotillard’s other television appearances? Please send them in, we’d be very thankful!

‘Blood Ties’ Premieres at Cannes

One down, one to go! Marion shone at Cannes on Monday for the premiere of her first film in the festival, Guillaume Canet’s Blood Ties. Early in the day, wearing a gorgeous Antonio Berardi dress, she attended the photocall for the film alongside Guillaume, Zoe Saldana, Clive Owen and James Caan. She seemed to be having a lot of fun laughing about with Zoe and signing autographs for the fans upon arrival.

The traditional press conference ensued and Marion was complimented on her Italian accent by an Italian journalist. A very fun moment where she said she wanted to kiss him! You can watch the press conference on the Official Festival site with English voice over.

Later in the evening the premiere took place. Marion looked stunning in a strapless Dior gown as she walked the red carpet with her co-stars. After the premiere, they headed out for the After Party and cocktail hosted by Dior. Marion changed into a simpler, black Dior gown for the party.

I have added photos from the entire day to the gallery as well as the poster and trailer for Blood Ties.

Finally, with the premiere of The Immigrant taking place this Friday, here are a couple of articles about the film you might enjoy reading:
