So far, I spotted New York Lady Dior ads (the first version) in the UK September issues of Elle and Harper’s Bazaar.
The release of Marion’s latest international movie project ‘Inception‘ is still almost a year away (July 16, 2010) but the official website has already gone online (even though there’s next to no content) and a teaser has also been released (no Marion, though).
I replaced two of the ‘Le dernier vol‘ (The Last Flight) stills we recently got from the Figaro magazine with beautiful HQ pictures. Enjoy!
The release date for the film in France and French speaking Switzerland is now November 18, 2009. Unfortunately, I leave for a 3 week holiday the same day so I really really hope it will still be playing in a city nearby when I get back.
Marion Cotillard narrated the forthcoming ‘Voyage sous les mers 3d‘ by the brothers Jean-Jacques & François Mantello. The film opens in French theatres next week, August 26. According to the movie’s official site as of today there will be 4 advanced screenings with the presence of the directors. Not sure, if that’ll include Marion on at least one of the screenings? Maybe she’s too busy shooting ‘Inception‘ (although I think they were only shooting in Paris for 3 days) or she went back to the set of ‘Les Petits Mouchoirs‘ again already.
Anyway, I added the French interview with Marion from the production notes, the video interview from MenStyle.fr, the trailer, the poster as well as a picture of Marion behind the microphone to the media sections.
Maybe someone could provide English translations soon? That’d be awesome. In the meantime a short summary. We learn that Marion was intrigued by the project as soon as she heard about it. She was approached while filming ‘Le dernier vol‘ in the Sahara. She’s done some diving herself and was amazed by the wonders of the ocean. According to her watching ‘Voyage sous les mers 3d‘ will feel like a real dive.

002 Voyage sous les mers 3D (Trailer & interview)
As previously announced Marion Cotillard attended a screening of ‘Public Enemies‘ in Lyon on July 3, 2009. Bakasphere.com kindly gave me permission to post his pictures from the event. [edit:] Actually, these (and 2 new) pictures were taken at the Hôtel de Ville, where Marion participated in the radio show ‘La tête dans les étoiles‘ for RTL just before the actual screening.[/edit]. ToxicGirls.org added a video of the 5-min interview with Marion, which took place before the screening, to DailyMotion. Find screencaptures & the clip in the media sections.
Note that some guy went up to the stage to ask for an autograph. Marion graciously signed for him but the interviewer made clear that this was to be an exception and that everyone else please remain seated. LOL
001 Other Public Appearances – 2009 Public Enemies Lyon Premiere
Wow! Yesterday, August 17, Marion Cotillard along with Leonardo DiCaprio and Ellen Page were busy shooting scenes for ‘Inception‘ in Paris, France. According to ComingSoon.net this took place around the Pont de Bir-Hakeim, a bridge that crosses the Seine River. They also put up a ton of pictures and it seems that Marion did 2 different scenes. One getting involved in a fight with Leonardo & Ellen’s characters and one kissing Leonardo. Marion Cotillard plays Lisa Hastley, the wife of Leonardo’s character.
I organized the pictures of Marion as the face of Lady Dior in a way that they are hopefully easier to find. Additionally, I replaced all the previous Behind the scenes pictures from The Lady Noire Affair video with HQ ones plus added many new ones!
Also the first behind the scenes pictures for the New York campaign – starring Marion as Lady Rouge – have surfaced! Enjoy!

This is a project that apart from the IMDb has also been widely reported in the Portuguese media. ‘Mistérios de Lisboa‘, the novel by famous author Camilo Castelo Branco, is being made into a film and a television mini-series by Chile’s leading director Raoul Ruiz. Marion Cotillard is reportedly in negotiations to be part of the project while Laetitia Casta, Melvil Poupaud, Adriano Luz and José Afonso Pimentel among many others have already been confirmed.
One of the biggest names in worldwide cinema, Raoul Ruiz, returns to Portugal to film Mysteries of Lisbon. Ruiz’s ninth project shot in our country (Portugal), is an adaptation of the novel of the same name by one of the greatest authors of Portuguese literature: Camilo Castelo Branco. This ambitious project, shot mainly in Lisbon during the fall of 2009, anticipates a recreation of the city at the end of the 18th century, and beginning of the 19th century, an adaptation by Carlos Saboga that will result in a film and a television series.

Filming is also supposed to take place in France and Brazil. The book is one of Camilo Castelo Branco’s early novels and was origininally written for a local paper in the style of a novella, with each chapter enticing the reader to continue unravelling the mysteries. It has been described as a “romance of the imagination” in the style of Victor Hugo.
Synopsis (of the novel):
This narrative account of two stories that mingle and fuse,because the story of Peter can only be counted if not to forget Father Dinis. Peter is an orphan of father and mother and be educated by a priest. The biggest regret of Peter is the condition of orphans and that is so poor. But Peter is not an orphan, much less poor, is the fruit of a forbidden love and reason of a great tragedy. You son of a major Portuguese families.

This timeless novel is a tragedy that crosses generations, which reveals deep secrets such as the decline of humanity. Illegitimate children have to die, duels of honor, sick persecution, fortune

Probability: This is a project which seems to really be happening in the near future. Everything’s set for a November start of filming. In the first update (July 30) about the project on the production company’s website they said they were still in negotiations with Marion Cotillard, however in another, more recent update (August 5), her name’s simply listed among the rest of the cast. Let’s hope that this means those negotiations went well and that her filming schedule for ‘Mistérios de Lisboa‘ was arranged in a way as not to interfere with the shooting of ‘Inception‘. Marion has always said she’d love to work anywhere in the world, so to have a part in a Portuguese production would clearly be thrilling for her.
Another film rumour originating from the IMDb. It’s a movie called ‘Second Coming‘, wich would be writer/director Nenad Cicin-Sain’s movie debut. Marion Cotillard would star as Galia and Mark Ruffalo as John Zener. Marion Cotillard is also listed as Executive Producer for this film.
Actor John Zener becomes an even bigger media obsession after releasing a controversial film on the Second Coming of Christ. This obsession results in the death of his wife and daughter in a paparazzi-caused accident forcing John to question for the first time the choices he has made. Teetering between delusion and sanity, John embarks on a journey through NYC, France and Spain to free himself of everything that symbolized his former life. It is through his journey that John finds transcendence and embraces the empathy that was missing in his life.
Probability: Again, I’ve found no outside sources to confirm this but the fact that Marion’s also listed as executive producer gives it more credibility.
According to the IMDb Marion Cotillard and Javier Bardem are attached to star a new project called ‘Picasso‘ about the extraordinary life story of legendary artist, Pablo Picasso, written & directed by Bandar Albuliwi.
Probability: No other sources confirm this. The movie’s production company Bandar Productions lists the movie as being In Development on their website. Which means that nothing about the project has been finalized yet, incl. casting.
