Welcome to Magnifique Marion Cotillard! Marion's best known for her award winning performance in La Vie en Rose, but you might also recognise her from movies such as Inception, Midnight in Paris, The Dark Knight Rises and The French Rust and Bone. Collecting nominations for her latest film Two Days, One Night and starring in the upcoming adaptation of Shakespeare's Macbeth, Marion Cotillard is finally making a comeback to leading roles. Not stopping at movies, Marion Cotillard is also exploring her musical talents, having toured with French rock band Yodelice and recorded a song and video with British band Metronomy. She's also taken over the fashion industry as the face of Lady Dior. All the while, she is never too busy for her family and to lend her time and name to causes she believes in. Enjoy your time here and keep checking back for all the latest news!

As on Tuesday, Marion Cotillard and Matthias Schoenarts continued to film for ‘Un goût de rouille et d’os‘ (Rust & Bone) on a private beach called Goéland in Cannes yesterday (source). Their characters Stéphanie and Ali were taking a dip in the ocean. Marion was seen sitting in a wheelchair and it was made to look as if she was wearing prosthetics from the knees downwards. Although the production was trying hard to cut off the view to the set to ensure privacy many of the pictures taken seem very intrusive (those are not included in this update) so I hope production moves to a more secluded area soon.

I added a few additional pictures from October 5 when Marion Cotillard was rehearsing with the orca whales in Marineland at Antibes, France. Then you can also enjoy new pictures from last Saturday at the same place. It is currently unclear whether those were more rehearsals or actual filming took place. And then you can also see pictures taken in Cannes yesterday, where Marion Cotillard was seen filming scenes while being in character and walking on a crutch.

You can see pictures of Marion and co-star Matthias Schoenarts from today’s filming on the beach in Cannes on EyePrime.

While filming for ‘Un gouût de rouille et d’os‘ (Rust and Bone) caused a closure of the sea front road between Fort Carré and la Siesta from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. today (source), Marion Cotillard continued her training with the orcas at Antibes’ Marineland. I added a bunch of pics taken today to the gallery.

NiceMatin.com reports that filming for Jacques Audiard’s new movie ‘Un goût de rouille et d’os‘ (Rust and Bone) starring Marion Cotillard started yesterday in Antibes. Marion herself wasn’t on the set but she arrived on the Côte d’Azur on Monday and spent Tuesday afternoon at the Antibes Marineland in rehearsals to be able to portray an orca trainer. She will return in November to film her scenes.

AlloCiné also has an official synopsis and it shows how some of the short stories of Craig Davidson‘s book have been converted into one storyline for the movie:

Ali is actually called Alain. Alain van Versch. He is 25 years old and lives in the North. He has no money and has never had any. When you’re young and alone, money is not a problem. It becomes one when the girl with whom you have had a child places it in your hands. Now, obviously, Ali has a problem: his name is Sam, and he’s five years old.

Running on and running out of ideas Ali calls his sister who lives in Antibes in the south. This is where the father and the child who don’t know each other will find shelter for the winter, in the basement of a house.

Ali agrees with the song: misery is less painful in the sun. He does odd jobs: night watchman, bouncer … And it is in a nightclub, le Fever, that he meets Stéphanie. She is 28 years old, she is blonde, she’s beautiful. It is a princess with an incredible occupation: orca trainer at the Aquatic Park in Antibes.

Ali accompanies her home and leaves her his number, but nothing is possible between them. A princess does not go out with a guy like Ali.

It takes the orca presentation show to turn into drama and Stéphanie to lose both her legs before a phone call in the middle of the night connects them again.

When Ali finds Stéphanie, packed in a wheelchair, alone in her new special needs apartment, he understands what a princess is who has lost her legs. A Princess fallen from above.

Between them will grow a relationship that is special, carnal and codified. And when Ali participates in illegal fights to save her life, she will become his manager.

UK’s The Guardian quoted great photographers on how they found new ways to shoot some of the world’s most photographed stars.

“We shot Marion ­Cotillard in Montauk, New York. She was up for an Oscar for La Vie En Rose. An assistant was holding my legs – I was hanging off a cliff. Looking at the ­photograph, you feel like you’re there. You can taste the wind and smell the ocean. You can see in her eyes how windy it was. All the elements of nature are in this, plus her sincerity and beauty.” – Ryan McGinley

This picture together with over 250 other photographs is featured in the book (448 pages) The New York Times ­Magazine Photographs, released last Friday.
