While the release of the US ‘Midnight in Paris‘ Blu-ray is still more than a week away the French one has been available since October. Finally, I added some gorgeous Blu-ray screencaptures to the gallery. Enjoy!
A while ago, on October 23, Marion Cotillard attended a premiere screening and photocall in Paris for ‘Contagion‘. Here are some pictures:
Over the last few weeks as well as today I added some scans and interview transcripts with Marion Cotillard from recent 2011 publications. I also added proper scans of the feature in last May’s L’Express Styles – many thanks melfan from Jemima West Fan for sending me the magazine! Here’s an overview:
• Beautiful Muse, Delta Sky Magazine, June
• La fille en Rose, Eurostar Metropolitan Magazine, June
• Shooting ‘Contagion’ while pregnant ‘affected me’, USA Today, September 9
• Portrait : Marion Cotillard, the directors’ muse, French Cinema London, October 6
• L.A. Confidentiel, Madame Figaro, November 5
Kindly do not redistribute the magazine scans at another Marion Cotillard fan site as they were scanned exclusively for ‘Magnifique Marion Cotillard’. Thank you.
Dior have also uploaded the actual Making Of both the print campaign by Steven Klein and the short film by John Cameron Mitchell. We learn that it is the first comedy in the series of Dior short films and that it is inspired by this 1973 short film by Richard Avedon and starring Lauren Hutton. I can’t wait to see the full L.A.dy Dior short film on December 13!
Sony Pictures Classics have revealed that they will release on Blu-ray Woody Allen’s love letter to the French capital Midnight in Paris (2011), starring Owen Wilson (The Darjeeling Limited), Rachel McAdams (Sherlock Holmes), and Kurt Fuller (The Pursuit of Happyness). Earlier this year, the film had its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival.
Midnight in Paris is a romantic comedy set in Paris about a family that goes there because of business, and two young people who are engaged to be married in the Fall have experiences there that change their lives. It’s about a young man’s great love for a city, Paris, and the illusion people have that a life different from theirs would be much better.
