Yesterday, ‘Inception‘ was released on DVD and Blu-Ray in parts of Europe a few days ahead of the US and UK. I added high quality screencaptures of Marion Cotillard as Mal. Enjoy!
Marion Cotillard and Guillaume Canet arrived in Morocco on Thursday and attended the vernissage of the exhibition The Chamooo Thoery at the David Bloch gallery (source). And yesterday they attended the opening ceremony of the 10th Marrakech International Film Festival. Marion was wearing her hair all curly and a Christian Dior Spring 2011 gown. She also shook hands with Prince Moulay Rachid.
Today, there will be a Dior gala dinner and the Tribute to French Cinema – ‘La Môme‘ (La Vie en Rose) will be part of the retrospective.
Marion Cotillard was nominated by International Press Academy for a Satellite Award for her performance in ‘Inception‘. Inception garnered 11 nominations, including Motion Picture (Drama), Best Director, and Best Actor for Leonardo diCaprio. Congratulations! The winners will be announced Sunday, December 19, 2010.

And one where Kevin Spacey talks about Leonoardo DiCaprio and Marion Cotillard:
Leonardo DiCaprio. I thought his work in ‘Inception’ was really great. His work in ‘Shutter Island’ was also great. And anytime he’s onscreen with Marion Cotillard is extraordinary. She, also, is incredible. Their relationship is so much the heart of that film — everything he was trying to shift and change so that the ending would be different. It’s remarkable. And it’s such a complex story. If you left that movie to go get popcorn or take a pee, you were screwed.

Lady Grey London – The Finale, the new 7:56-minute Lady Dior short movie directed by John Cameron Mitchell and starring Sir Ian McKellen and Russell Tovey next to Marion Cotillard will go live on LadyDior.com on December 8. It was filmed at various locations in London including Brixton Academy and The Rivington Club and features the 1973 hit single ‘Rock On’ by David Essex. Why London? Says John Galliano: “London is where I began.”
Last Thursday there was a Dior Store opening party in London with a private dinner hosted by Stella Tennant at the Claridge’s Hotel afterwards. There are no pictures of Marion Cotillard but she may have attended the event. The new Dior short movie was then premiered at the Institute of Contemporary Arts the following morning after a breakfast of coffee and croissants (source). Chiara from The Blonde Salad attended all the Dior events and posted pictures (last one) and a video (after 8 minutes) from this event – where you can spot Marion at the screening.

Post-screening, Marion Cotillard was a picture of poise and elegance as she humbly admitted of not knowing much about fashion. She said that working with Galliano and Mitchell wasn’t about just fashion, but the transcendence of their creations into an altogether bigger realm of art, and that is what attracted her to the house of Dior in the first place.

“In this movie, there is something that is different than the others, there’s a very strong, young, childlike part of Lady Grey — the way she plays, the way she’s very genuine, the way she does things and she doesn’t really know all the effects she has on people,” said Cotillard after the screening at London’s Institute of Contemporary Arts.
“Back two years ago when I was watching the fashion shows and people would ask me things about fashion, I would totally freak out, because I didn’t know how to talk about it,” she said. “But meeting John Galliano…has made my mind open to this world and I now really see it like really true art that makes women beautiful.”
