I don’t think we already hava a news announcement about this but Marion Cotillard is narrating ‘Terre des ours‘ (Land of the Bears), the first documentary to be presented in cinemas in 3D. It’s being released in France on February 26. Visit the official Homepage for more Information and to view some pictures.

Set in the wilderness of the Kamchatka Peninsula, the land of legends and the kingdom of wild brown bears, we follow the daily adventures of five wild brown bears. A mother bear and her two young ones, an adolescent male and an experienced male leader. Each of them have their own concerns and preoccupations. The mother must feed and protect her cubs, whilst all they want is to explore the big wide world out there, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead of them. The adolescent is coming of age and must find his place in the adult world, whereas the experienced male must constantly defend his supremacy and impose his strength.

Marion Cotillard answered some questions posted on Disney Channel.fr during their program Spot Mag last Wednesday.

What is your favourite animal and why?
Oh, this is difficult because I love lots of animals. So to start, I love elephants. Because I watched many documentaries about elephants and because their ability to show emotion really moves me. They cry and really display emotion in a way that we humans can see.

I want to become an actress. Do you have an advice?
I recommend to take your time, to work, to experiment, I don’t know how old you are but to live your life and to live all the experiences that nourish the actress you will be.

What was your biggest adventure when you were a child?
I was born in Paris, I lived in a city in the suburbs. So when I moved to the countryside with my parents it was really a very big adventure. I moved from the 18th floor of a block of flats to a country house that had a huge garden with a river at the end. This has really enriched my life. It’s true that my life in the city has done that as well, but it really was a shock and a big adventure.

How does it feel to be famous?
It’s quite a peculiar thing, maybe I will never fully get used to it. Additionally, celebrity today sometimes comes from nowhere, from nothing. Someone can be famous for being on television etc. This is dangerous. But my celebrity also comes from the fact that people have seen a part of my life when I was telling a story. So my celebrity allows me to continue to tell stories. Anyway, I can’t complain.

Bonus questions

What was your dream job while growing up?
I wanted to be so many things that I decided acting was the best way to experience many different jobs.

What are your passions?
I love music, I can’t imagine my life without music. It’s my dream to be able to play an instrument very well. This is something I can’t at the Moment and it’s frustrating. I also love forests and nature. It’s one of the reasons I agreed to be the voice of ‘Land of the bears‘.

What made you want to be in cinema?
I come from a family of actors and storytelling and acting has always been part of my life. What made me want to be in cinema is because I really admire this art form and I used to watch a lot of films by Charlie Chaplin or the Marx Brothers. So all of this made me want to be in cinema.

2013 saw Marion Cotillard grace the cover of several French and international magazines. The release of two of her movies in Europe, ‘Blood Ties’ and ‘The Immigrant’, first in Cannes and then in the whole of France later in the year, earned her some attention from the media. While most of the coverage was in France, Marion was also on the cover of US ELLE in 2013, coinciding with the award she received from the magazine in late October.

We have finished adding all the scans from 2013 which featured brand new shoots and interviews.

With ‘The Immigrant’ having been released in Italy yesterday, the Italian press has been featuring Marion as well, providing us with these early 2014 scans from Gioia magazine and quick appearances in newspapers.

Both of Marion’s films should be released worldwide throughout the first half of this year.
