‘Midnight in Paris’ gets wide Re-Release
The success story of ‘Midnight in Paris‘ is continuing. It has now taken $50 million at the U.S. box office – and is now Woody Allen’s top-grossing film of all time at the US box office. It had overtaken both Vicky Cristina Barcelona and Match Point‘s gross of $23.2 million in late June and has since beaten the $40.1 million earned 25 years ago by Hannah and Her Sisters.
Sony Pictures Classics have now announced their plans for a wide US re-release of ‘Midnight in Paris‘ as of August 26 (likely to expand to 900-1000 theatres as opposed to the current 400). The re-release will be accompanied by new TV ads. It seems like the studio to get the best out of the movie – both in terms of profit and Oscar buzz.

Also ‘Midnight in Paris‘ was released in theatres in German speaking territory (Germany, Austria & Switzerland) yesterday.

Rumour: Role in Jacques Audiard’s next movie? (Update)
Back in June we posted about how there was a rumour that Marion might be in Jacques Audiard’s next movie ’Un goût de rouille et d’os‘ (English title: Rust and Bone). The rumour was again raised earlier in the week, this time via a mention on UniFrance’s Facebook page.
We’ll have to wait and see if it gets confirmed, but until then some more information has popped up about the movie.

Marion Cotillard is coming to town.
She is going to be in my area/town October 3rd and this for 10 weeks. She will be shooting the new Jacques Audiard’s movie called “Un goût de rouille et d’os”. (A taste of rust and bones).
Multiple casting sites are looking for a woman between 18-40 who is thin, bilateral femoral or tibial amputee to cover for the main actress (the role that Marion is rumoured to be playing in the movie).
Meanwhile, Alexandre Desplat will be composing the music for the movie.
According to the casting notices the movie will start filming as early as September.
New ‘Contagion’ Poster & Stills
Yahoo! Movies has released individual character posters for ‘Contagion’ as Warner Bros steps up the promotion for the movie’s launch next month. I have also added some new stills that have been released (basically these have already been seen before in the trailer), credit to Cine Marcado for one of them.

On the cover of Elle France
Marion Cotillard graces the cover of the French Elle magazine on newsstands today. In the interview, she reportedly confides about love, motherhood and cinema. I can’t wait for the interview. Most exciting is the gorgeous vacation-themed 17-page photospread.

On the set of ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Yesterday
More pictures from the ‘The Dark Knight Rises‘ set in Pittsburgh – this time from yesterday, August 3rd. I have to say there is a lot more media coverage from this set than from London where Marion Cotillard also was filming for a couple of weeks, starting mid-June.

More from the set of ‘The Dark Knight Rises’
Yesterday, Marion Cotillard was spotted filming a scene for ‘The Dark Knight Rises‘ in Pittsburgh walking out of Gotham City Hall, surrounded by some men with machine guns. She is then escorted to the Batmobile, also known as The Tumbler (source: Metro.co.uk).
By the way, an official teaser for the movie was released a couple of weeks ago as well as a poster.
