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!

The French trailer for ‘Les Petits Mouchoirs‘ debuted today exclusively on MSN.fr. However, the same footage was already shown on Sunday during the Rencontres de cinéma avec Guillaume Canet on Canal+. During that interview also more scenes from the movie were shown for the first time! And recently a second Making Of video was released. The movie will be released in France on October 20.

Very big news for the movie came also in today! The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) announced their lineup of Galas and Special Presentations! So, ‘Little White Lies‘ (the movie’s English title) will celebrate its world premiere with a gala screening at the Canadian Film Festival!

Marion Cotillard is on the cover of French Elle this week. The pictures definitely have a retro as well as summer feeling to it, and of course Marion looks divine! It’s just a pity that they included ‘only’ 3 pictures.

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.
