A brief interview to promote the upcoming Cannes premiere and French cinema release of ‘De rouille et d’os‘ (Rust & Bone) recorded on Saturday aired yesterday morning on France 2‘s Télématin.
Last Saturday, Marion Cotillard was the guest & co-editor of Marie Drucker’s radio show Le Journal Inattendu and on Sunday she was interviewed about ‘De Rouille et d’os‘ (Rust & Bone) together with Matthias Schoenaerts during the evening news on French TV channel France 2. They showed the adorable clip of 6 year old Marion in ‘La monde des tout petits‘ which already ‘Les enfants de la télé’ showed to Marion back in September 2010. And Will Smith, who was a guest on the news show the day before, had a message for Marion, suggesting they should do a movie together (she replied that she’d love to make a comedy with him).
Marion Cotillard is on the cover of today’s French Elle magazine with a brand new fun photo shoot and interview.

A new trailer for ‘The Dark Knight Rises‘ was released earlier this week. It features an even briefer look at Marion Cotillard as mysterious Miranda Tate than the last trailer.

According to the Orquestra Simfònica de Barcelona (OBC)‘s 2012/2013 Season Programme Marion Cotillard will finally reprise her role as Joan of Arc in Arthur Honegger’s oratorio Jeanne au bûcher (Joana a la foguera) on November 17 and 18 under the directon of Marc Soustrot. She will be accompanied by the choirs Liedercamera, Madrigal and Vivaldi. The concert will be transmitted live on Medici TV on November 17, 2012. The concerts are held in honour of the 600th anniversary of Joan of Arc’s birth.

Mexican media reported that Marion Cotillard will bring the story of Florence Cassez, who’s serving a 60 year sentence in Mexico for kidnapping but is claiming her innocence, to the big screen. Florence Cassez herself confirmed to AFP that Marion Cotillard has indeed visited her at the prison in Tepepan (Mexico) on April 7 for over 3 hours – flying in especially from New York for the day. However, the visit wasn’t about a movie project:
Between Marion and me there has never been any talk of a movie project.
We’ve been in touch over the phone for months. She joined my support committee in France. I then contacted her over the phone for the first time on January 25 to thank her. And then I called her regularly because this great friendship sprang up between us.
It was a very good meeting between friends and we did not want to publicize it. We’re just two women of the same age, we share the same values, the same desires, we have much in common.
[edit:] Florence’s mother, Charlotte Cassez, confirms all of the above in an interview with Le Figaro.
Walter Salles’ On the Road, Lee Daniels’ The Paperboy and Michael Haneke’s Amour will join Rust and Bone by Jacques Audiard and David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis for a trip to the 65th annual Cannes Film Festival.
Also screening in the competition are Holy Motors by Leos Carax, The Angels’ Share by Ken Loach, John Hillcoat’s Lawless, which stars Shia LaBoeuf, Tom Hardy, Guy Pearce and Gary Oldman alongside Jessica Chastain in a Prohibition-era drama, and more U.S. titles such as Jeff Nichols’ Mud and Andrew Dominik’s Killing Them Softly with Brad Pitt and Ray Liotta. All in all, U.S. filmmakers will have a strong presence on the Croisette this year.
President Gilles Jacob and artistic director Thierry Fremaux announced the official selection for the May 16-27 festival at a press conference in Paris late Thursday morning.
While the 2011 competition lineup was light on U.S. directors and star power, the Cannes team certainly made up for it this year. “American cinema has come back relatively en force,” Fremaux said.
Pitt, Robert Pattinson, Nicole Kidman and Marion Cotillard and Matthew McConaughey — who both have multiple projects in Cannes — will add glam to the fest as they make their way down the world’s most famous cinema catwalk.
Ahead of its French theatrical release on May 17 the first stills and a French trailer has been released for ‘De Rouille et d’Os‘ (Rust & Bone). Doesn’t it look very promising? Go here for an English synopsis.
