Following its release on July 16 beginning with Thursday midnight screenings ‘Inception‘ is currently occupying #1 in the US, having grossed $62,785,337 in 3,792 theaters on its opening weekend (average $16,557 per theater). Up until now the movie has grossed $89,470,702 worldwide. This is quite the achievement for an non-sequel auteur action movie with a mysterious plot in the middle of blockbuster summer season! Congratulations!
Box Office Majoy mentions that it was the second highest-grossing debut ever for a sci-fi movie that wasn’t a sequel, remake or adaptation, behind Avatar’s $77 million. Inception’s initial attendance was also higher than similar titles like The Matrix and Minority Report. Also it was apparently the biggest opening of star Leonardo DiCaprio’s career – let alone Marion Cotillard’s even if she’s seen in a supporting role.
Continue to support ‘Inception‘ by seeing it in theaters – according to most critics as well as people who’ve seen it it will definitely be worth your time!
Thank you for not posting spoilers in the comments or in emails to me – ‘Inception‘ is not coming to theatres where I live until July 29.
Marion Cotillard is on the cover of the August issue of Interview magazine. The photoshoot is very dreamy, sensual and just breathtaking! The interview was conducted over the phone by Nicole Kidman and is definitely one of the most informative Marion interviews in the English language. She talks about her work with Greenpeace in Congo, her love for the environment, searching for answers, dreams and her work with Yodelice. Read it on the magazine’s website
• Marion Cotillard, Interview, August 2010
Tuesday night Marion Cotillard was a guest on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson – for the 2nd time this year and overall her 4th visit. As usual the banter between the two was hilarious and I don’t think Marion’s ever been this relaxed on TV! And we get a new glimpse of a scene with Marion in ‘Inception‘. Enjoy!
Marion was very busy promoting ‘Inception‘. On Thursday, July 8, she attended the world premiere at Odeon Leicester Square in London, England. Her dress is by US-designer Thakoon. She looked absolutely perfect, her look was so her, the wavy hair, the bohemian style of the dress and the make-up gave her a beautiful complexion. It’s definitely one of my favourite outfits of her.
Then after the press junket on Friday, she attended the Paris premiere at the Gaumont Champs Elysées on Saturday evening, July 10, looking absolutely flawless in Dior.
And yesterday, July 13, she attended the Los Angeles premiere at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in a exquisite L’Wren Scott dress, looking – once more – breathtaking. She was spotted at the airport taking a plane back to Paris right after the premiere (she still has the same hairdo) as she’s expected on set for more ‘Midnight in Paris‘ filming.
I added some more pictures of Marion Cotillard on the set of the Woody Allen directed ‘Midnight in Paris‘. There are some from last Tuesday (July 6) where she’s wearing the same costume as on Monday and a whole bunch of her with Owen Wilson from Wednesday (July 7).
