On the cover of Femina & L’Express Styles
Marion Cotillard is also on the cover of two more French magazines promoting ‘Midnight in Paris‘. Femina and L’Express Styles – the latter has a brand new photoshoot with Marion. While I’m obtaining the magazines to provide scans here the covers.
[Edit] I added the scans from Femina – huge thank you goes to melfan from Jemima West Fan for sending me the magazine this quickly – and digital scans of L’Express Styles as a preview (sorry for the bad quality).

On the Cover of Madame Figaro – Cannes Issue
Just ahead of the opening of the Cannes Film Festival – and the world premiere of ‘Midnight in Paris‘ – next Wednesday French magazine Madame Figaro‘s special Cannes issue is hitting newsstands this Saturday. Guess who’s gracing the cover: Marion Cotillard! The beautiful photoshoot is none other than the one we’ve been anticipating to see more of.
According to a preview of the article – courtesy of PurePeople (view via Google Translator) – the birth of her child is expected before the opening of the festival and she is not for a second contemplating marching the steps for the opening of her new movie – even if it’s the first time she’d have had the opportunity of doing so for one of her own movies en sélection and directed by Woody Allen no less. During the interview she opens up about life in recent months: apparently, being pregnant as well as being home in Paris and seeing more of her friends and family has left her being really Zen – even about being photographed by paparazzi (despite still not liking it). And she calls her part in ‘The Dark Knight Rises‘ a small one.
I can’t wait for the full interview!

Marion speaks about ‘The Dark Knight Rises’
Marion Cotillard recently spoke to 24 Frames – the Movies section on the LA Times Website – and they asked her about her role in ‘The Dark Knight Rises‘ and why she joined the project. Could her character Miranda Tate be a cover for a more intriguing character as fans are speculating?
“My role is a secret, as is the whole project.” Cotillard did offer some thoughts on why she joined the film — namely, a chance to reunite with Nolan. And she said she has a specific regard for Batman among pretty much all the superheroes out there.
Just what is it about Batman that makes him so appealing to the actress? It’s that brooding thing. “I think it’s that he’s human,” Cotillard said. “He can’t really fly, and he doesn’t have superpowers. And he has that darkness inside.”
It sounds like this was part of an interview conducted for ‘Midnight in Paris‘ so I can’t wait for the whole interview.

Marion confirmed for ‘The Dark Knight Rises’
ComingSoon.net just reported Warner Bros. Pictures’ announcement from earlier today that Marion Cotillard and Joseph Gordon-Levitt have – after much speculation – officially joined the cast of ‘The Dark Knight Rises, the epic conclusion to the Dark Knight legend helmed by Christopher Nolan. This will be quite the ‘Inception‘ re-union since both Marion and Joseph as well as already confirmed cast members Michael Caine and Tom Hardy were directed by Christopher Nolan in that movie.
Cotillard will appear as Miranda Tate, a Wayne Enterprises board member eager to help a still-grieving Bruce Wayne resume his father’s philanthropic endeavors for Gotham.
Gordon-Levitt will play John Blake, a Gotham City beat cop assigned to special duty under the command of Commissioner Gordon.
The Hollywood Reporter has this quote from Christopher Nolan:
When you collaborate with people as talented as Marion and Joe, it comes as no surprise that you would want to repeat the experience. I immediately thought of them for the roles of Miranda and Blake, and I am looking forward to working with both of them again.
