81st Academy Awards – Screencaptures
I finished capping all the Oscar related videos with Marion and added the caps to the gallery. Videos will come soon! As I’ve said before, Marion Cotillard was seated right behind Amy Adams who in turn was sitting next to Meryl Streep. This should help you locate Marion on the audience caps.
During the credits of the show small previews of upcoming movies were shown – among them: Public Enemies. I’ve added the Marion caps to the gallery as well.

Picture update & Césars tomorrow
I added a total of 94 regular quality pictures to almost all of 2009′s event albums.
Also I would like to remind everyone that tomorrow the 34th César Ceremony is taking place in Paris. As last year’s winner of the Best Actress césar it is very likely that Marion will be attending and/or presenting. Canal+ is airing the show as of 8.50pm MET. And apparently as of 9pm MET we will all be able to watch it live on CanalPlus.Fr..
I am not sure whether I will be able to record anything as my computer is acting weird lately whenever I’m dealing with media files. Could anyone watch out for Marion on the red carpet and during the ceremony and provide clips for this site? Thank you very much.
[edit Feb 27:] I couldn’t get that direct link to play but from what I’ve been able to gather on the live blog Marion Cotillard was absent from tonight’s Césars Ceremony despite having reportedly returned to France earlier this week (thanks Gemma for the link). I’m sure she’s taking a well deserved break before filming for her first leading role since La Vie en Rose starts in little over a week from now: Aviator Chubbie Miller searching for her fiancé in the much awaited Sahara-set adventure-romantic drama “Le Dernier vol de Lancaster” by Karim Dridi opposite Guillaume Canet. Filming starts March 9 and will mostly take place in the Moroccan desert.
“Public Enemies” – Test Screening Reviews
Marion Cotillard’s upcoming movie, the Michael Mann directed “Public Enemies” starring Johnny Depp, was test screened last Thursday (Feb 12) in Sherman Oaks, CA. It was a blind screening, which means that they didn’t give the name of the film when soliciting for moviegoers. /Film compiled some reviews that subsequently appeared online. Here the Marion related parts:
Marion Cotillard was excellent as well. She and Depp had believable chemistry but I couldn’t tell what her accent was supposed to be. Some words didn’t have any accents at all while others sounded like her normal speaking voice. I will have to say that by the she surprised me very much. She has the final scene in the movie and it ended well. (I will say that she surprised me even more because I thought she wasn’t *THAT GREAT* in La Vie En Rose–Nom? Yes. Oscar win for that movie? No.)

Loved the paring of him with Cotilliard–she was excellent too and a nice complement to Johnny’s Dillinger. I thought the acting all around excellent!

And he does dance one dance with Billie. But he starts off telling her, “I don’t know how to dance”. … Now that we’re onto Billie, Marion Cotilliard really grew on me. They were good together. I loved the scene where JD went after Billie at her job. Watch for that one! And the love scene was good. But typical Johnny, in clothes. But for most of it we only saw him from the shoulders and up.

Everyone seemed to like the love story, but they wanted a little more character development with Billie. They really liked the scene at the coat check counter a lot and how Dillinger just completely charmed Billie into going back to the hotel with him. (And yeah, I think we ALL would’ve gone with him – he was that charming!) And he gave her a gift – which Billie probably felt she didn’t deserve, but it was symbolic of how he wanted to protect her. And when they capture her, she protects him. Really nice theme going throughout. I have to say that the scene when they do capture Billie and take her away is just gutwrenching. To watch Johnny’s face go through all the emotions he’s feeling is just incredible.

Marion Cotillard. What can I say other that she’s beautiful and talented. There is definitely some chemistry between her and Depp which made their brief love affair believable.

Early review of “Public Enemies”
Ain’t It Cool News have a very early review up – it’s tentatively optimistic. Since the reviewer didn’t get to see the final product yet he advises: “it’s probably just better to wait until next summer and not know anything about it when you go in.” So read at your own peril. Here the Marion related part:
The best part is the love story between Dillinger and actress Marion Cotillard from La Vie en Rose, who plays a bright girl leading a fairly simple life who Dillinger falls in love with (rather quickly – but it’s humorous and it works). Their relationship is well developed and the most effective storyline, interleaved well in to the movie as to not take away from the action for too long… which is important because that is what michael mann does best and there’s plenty of it in this movie.
Thanks patel for the heads up!
