More ‘Public Enemies’ stills
I added 6 more ‘Public Enemies‘ stills. As you must have noticed, Marion Cotillard is very busy at the moment and I could almost constantly update the site with news etc. My own life however, is pretty busy too right now, so I don’t know how soon I will catch up with everything. Thank you for your patience!
Don’t forget, Marion will appear on Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson tonight at 12:35am ET/PT on CBS.
New release date for ‘Le dernier vol‘ in France is November 11, 2009.
Marion Cotillard’s character in ‘Inception‘ is reportedly called Lisa Hastley.

‘Inception’ started shooting in Japan
According to ScreenCave, Marion’s costars Leonardo DiCaprio and Ken Watanabe together with director Christopher Nolan have already started filming ‘Inception‘ earlier this month in Japan.
As the movie reportedly will be shot in 5 different countries until at least November we’re not sure when and where Marion Cotillard will join the team, but according to reports we had from Cannes it will be after she finishes filming ‘Les petits mouchoirs‘ in August.
Tonight: Red Carpet event
This is quite a surprise. While the official ‘Public Enemies‘ is scheduled for next Tuesday, there will be a red carpet event at 6pm tonight prior to a screening of the film at AMC River East, 322 E. Illinois. Director Michael Mann and stars Johnny Depp, Christian Bale and Marion Cotillard are among the principals scheduled to walk the red carpet and talk to the press about the film.
Illinois Street will be blocked off in front of the multiplex, but there will be a few sidewalk and bleacher seats for fans eager to see Depp and the other actors.
Also, the 12 minute featurette PUBLIC ENEMIES: HBO FIRST LOOK starts airing on HBO this afternoon. Check out the complete schedule here.
‘Inception’ has a $200 Million Budget
According to the Calgary Sun filming for Marion’s next Hollywood production, the Christopher Nolan directed ‘Inception‘ – also starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Michael Caine and Ellen Page among others – will start November 2009 in Kananaskis (Alberta, Canada). The article also reveals that the mysterious sci-fi movie has a budget of $200-million (!) and will be filming in 5 different countries.
‘Public Enemies’ Premieres
While we know that ‘Public Enemies‘ will have its world premiere at the LA Film Festival June 23 it has now been announced that the movie’s European Premiere will take place in London, Leicester Square, on June 29 ahead of its UK theatrical release on July 3. Marion Cotillard together with Johnny Depp and Michael Mann are scheduled to attend. (source)
Then, thanks to Stéphanie for directing me to a thread in the Allociné forums. Apparently the official French premiere will take place July 2 at the UGC Normandie cinema in Paris. All the actors – incl. Marion – and the director are scheduled to attend. Here’s your chance to win 2 tickets to that exclusive event. Probably only if you’re a resident of France, though.
[Edit:] Apparently, this Paris screening of ‘Public Enemies‘ will open the Paris Film Festival, which runs July 2-14.

Narrating ‘OceanWorld 3D’
As reported by Le Film Français last Thursday, Marion Cotillard will be narrating the documentary ‘Voyage sous les mers 3D‘, directed by Jean-Jacques Mantello and produced by his brother François. Thanks to her involvement the project will receive more attention from the media and thus help bring the importance of the environment’s protection more to people’s attention.
The film will be released in cinemas across France August 26, 2009. Titled ‘OceanWorld 3D‘ the documentary is also set for a US release in 2009, no specific date is yet available. However, my guess is that someone else will be providing the English narration (IMDb listing).
A tribute to the ocean, “Oceans 3D” takes viewers on a voyage through, among others, Californian kelp forests, the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, and Roca Partida Island off the coast of Mexico, which is home to thousands of sharks. Audiences will witness some of the most spectacular and unforgettable scenes of life beneath the waves ever captured in 3D: the manta ray’s enchanting ballet; the noble procession of hammerhead sharks; the lion fish’s relentless hunt; a group of young dolphins playing algae-football; the astonishing beauty of the Spanish dancer sea slug; and a unique encounter with the largest cetaceans on the planet.
More information about ‘Les Petits Mouchoirs’
Apart from the fact that Marion’s multiple former co-star (Love Me If You Dare and The Last Flight) and boyfriend Guillaume Canet is the script author and director of her new movie Les Petits Mouchoirs there are more connections. She will be re-united with former co-stars Gilles Lelouche (Love Me If You Dare and Ma vie en l’air) and Benoit Magimel (Lisa and Fair Play). Other cast members include Francois Cluzet, Anne Marivin and Jean Dujardin.
Here’s the synopsis for the $25 million tragicomedy which is scheduled to shoot for 12 weeks starting August 3 (4 in Paris, 8 in Cap Ferret):
A generational tragicomedy, “Mouchoirs” follows a group of friends from Paris to the coast at Cap Ferret near Bordeaux for their traditional summer holiday together. But the mood sobers as characters confess their innermost concerns.
“In the vein of ‘The Big Chill’ and ‘Peter’s Friends,’ ‘Mouchoirs’ mixes moments of high comedy and large emotions,” Attal said at Cannes, where he’s shopping Canet’s script to sales agents, distributors and Gallic TV operators.
