Thanks Kit for directing me to an article at WWD.com which talks about Marion arriving for a fitting ahead of the upcoming Costume Institute ball. Read the article in the press archive. There are two things we learn:
1) There’s a new 7-minute film in support of the Lady Dior handbag that will debut on the Internet next month
2) Up next for Marion after Inception “a French film by her boyfriend – and “Lancaster” co-star – Guillaume Canet”
about aviator look in Le dernier vol:
I love that look: the helmet, the goggles, the jacket, everything. It’s very masculine. You feel confident
Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Michael Caine have joined the cast of Inception. In all the news of their casting Marion Cotillard’s participation was confirmed. Fabulous news!
Thank you Jess for making Magnifique Marion Cotillard site of the month at Nicole’s Magic – your best resource for everything about Marion’s Nine costar Nicole Kidman. Be sure to visit Jess’s lovely site.
Universal Pictures recently released a second, an international trailer for ‘Public Enemies‘ starring Johnny Depp, Christian Bale and of course Marion Cotillard. I’ve added the trailer as well as screencaptures to the media parts of the site.
If anyone comes across a better version of the trailer for bigger screencaptures please don’t hesitate to tell me, thanks!
Great news, I hope this is really happening! Variety reports that Warner Bros. is in talks with Marion Cotillard, Cillian Murphy and Ellen Page to join the cast of “Inception,” which Christopher Nolan wrote and will direct as his next film. Leonardo DiCaprio has already been set to star. Filming is set to begin this summer for a 2010 release.
What is it about? Apparently, “the subject matter has been kept under tight wraps, with the studio describing the film as a contemporary sci-fi actioner set within the architecture of the mind.” But The Hollywood Reporter has a bit more information:
However, as the casting process progresses, details are beginning to leak out. DiCaprio’s character is mentioned as a CEO-type, while Cotillard would play his wife. Page is a young college grad student and DiCaprio’s sidekick.”
I’ve been trying to find confirmation of the start of shooting for Marion Cotillard’s new movie Le dernier vol (The Last Flight). While I haven’t exactly been able to find it everything I did find seemed to confirm the previously reported date of March 9. Also the movie’s main producer Gaumont mentioned the movie in their March 5 newsletter and said it was set for a release in November 2009! Wow! [edit:] And apparently the shooting will last for 8 weeks – till the end of April 2009.
I added a photoshopped poster (with the “international” title The Last Flight) that someone took a picture of during the 2008 Cannes Film Festival, where the producers tried to secure finances. Also, I need to point out that despite something I read online somewhen last year everything points to this film not only being French in terms of producers (additionally, France 3 and Canal + are co-producing) but also in terms of language – which makes sense actually.
On another note I came across a new synopsis of the film’s story here. Does that mean the film will only be loosely inspired by real-life couple Chubbie Miller and Bill Lancaster?! I’m confused. Here my attempt of its translation:
Young aviator and stubborn adventurer Marie leaves to search for her lover in the Sahara desert where he went missing while attempting a record flight from London to Cape (South Africa). Her sudden arrival disrupts the routine at an outpost of the Meharists (French Foreign Legion) who are facing a Touareg rebellion.
A captain with a hierarchy conflict, Antoine, decides to help Marie in her quest – in the midst of an ocean of magnificent and hostile sand.
Under the overpowering heat their desire to survive unites them and leads to a disturbing and unexpected love story…
Original French text:
Jeune aviatrice, aventurière obstinée, Marie part à la recherche de son amant disparu dans le désert saharien lors d’une tentative de record de traversée Londres-Le cap. Cette arrivée impromptue vient bouleverser le quotidien d’un poste avancé de méharistes français aux prises avec la montée de la rébellion touareg.
Antoine, capitaine en conflit avec sa hiérarchie, décide d’aider Marie dans cette quête, au coeur d’un océan de sable grandiose et hostile.
Sous une chaleur accablante, leur désir de survivre les unira dans une histoire d’amour troublante et inattendue…
If this turns out to be the real story of the film it could mean Guillaume Canet would play Antoine instead of Marion’s character’s missing lover – which would give the two actors a lot of scenes together. I’m definitely excited to hear more about this film!
Here a list of pictures I’ve recently added to the Movies & Public Appearances sections of the gallery:
001 La Guerre dans le Haut Pays – Stills
015 Du Bleu Jusqu’en Amérique – Screencaptures > Trailer
001 Jeux d’enfants – Stills
003 Fair Play – Stills I also replaced a few stills with HQ versions
005 A Good Year – Official Wallpaper
009 ‘La Môme’ Premiere – Plan de Campagne, January 25, 2007
004 ‘La Môme’ – Festival International du 1er film February 13, 2007
030 ‘La Môme’ Press Conference – Los Angeles, April 17, 2007
001 Pre-Oscar Parties, February 21, 2009
The last picture is actually from Variety‘s 7th Annual Night Before Party at the Beverly Hills Hotel which helped raise funds for the Motion Picture & Television Fund. It seems like this was Marion’s first stop of an evening full of party hopping – from one Pre-Oscar party to the next.
Wow! The first official ‘Public Enemies‘ trailer is out! Follow this link to watch it on apple.com. The trailer opens right with Marion’s voice when she asks John Dillinger “What is it exactly you do for a living?” and I’m now officially excited for the film! The film will be released in the US July 1 – and sadly only on August 13 in Switzerland, I can’t wait!
I’ve added HQ screencaptures to the gallery:

[Edit March 7:] Added the trailer also the the Video Archive
My good friend Mycah watched the ET ‘Public Enemies‘ preview for us yesterday. Sadly in the exclusive featurette there was no Marion footage, but she sent me captures of the preview of the trailer, which will be shown on ET tonight and should also debut on apple.com very soon. Apparently, as of Friday the trailer will be shown in cinemas before the movie ‘Watchmen‘. Thanks Andrea for the info!
MSN debuted the first ‘Public Enemies‘ poster today, as well as some new stills. But none feature a new Marion still. Still, very exciting! Especially to see that out of the all star cast it’s Marion and Christian Bale who, in addition to Johnny Depp of course, get to have their names on the poster – it seems the two have equal billing positions. And it’s certainly nice to read Academy Award winner Marion Cotillard on a poster!
Also word is out that ET will debut some exclusive footage as well as a preview of the trailer tonight! Watch the preview for the preview and don’t forget to tune in to spot Marion as Johnny Depp’s Dillinger’s girlfriend Billie.
The actual trailer should be online either tomorrow or Thursday and it can be admired on the big screen as of Friday. Don’t know which movies will show the ‘Public Enemies‘ trailer, though, sorry.
Also, it was reported last Friday by highly reliable Daily Mail correspondant Baz Bamigboye that ‘Public Enemies‘ might be chosen for the Cannes Festival movie line-up:
Cannes Film Festival selectors are due to look at a rough cut of Public Enemies, the movie about 1930s Public Enemy No1 John Dillinger. A delegation of Cannes Film Festival officials will travel to Los Angeles soon to view footage.
The picture, directed by Michael Mann, also stars Christian Bale, Channing Tatum and Carey Mulligan. It’s not certain yet whether it would have an opening night slot or a special premiere during the festival in May.
One factor that has to be sorted is whether or not Depp has the time (or the inclination) to attend Cannes. He’s busy doing additional filming on Alice In Wonderland and has two other projects to film back to back.
Also, Depp and Mann clashed on the set – but they’re both professionals and are most likely over it now.
Festival organisers are already holding talks with Pedro Almodovar about his noir movie Broken Embraces, which stars the best supporting actress Oscar winner Penelope Cruz.
Terminator Salvation, which stars Bale, is set to close the festival.
