Last week, ‘Public Enemies‘ had its “official” world premiere during the Los Angeles Film Festival. Marion Cotillard together with Johnny Depp, Christian Bale and Michael Mann – along with many of the other stars of the movie – attended the premiere. Finally, I’ve added the pictures. Enjoy!
You may have been as curious as I to listen to the new cover version of Midnight Oil’s Beds are burning – recorded by stars such as Marion Cotillard, Guillaume Canet, Mélanie Laurent and Vincent Pérez – which was supposed to be available for download this past Thursday.
The song is actually part of a campaign launched yesterday by former secretary general of the United Nations Kofi Annan and Live Aid founder Bob Geldof.
The “tck tck tck” campaign, pronounced tick, tick, tick to symbolise time running out, was created by Havas Worldwide and will break online today and appear on TV and press in the coming days.
The campaign has been backed by the Advertising Community Together initiative and Havas Worldwide’s global chief executive, David Jones, is calling on all advertisers to feature the tck tck tck logo on all ad campaigns globally between July and December.
The ad aims to urge people from around the world to become “climate allies” and apply pressure on world leaders to reach a just and binding deal at the UN Climate Change conference in Copenhagen in December 2009.
Additional components of the campaign will include the release of merchandise dog-tags and a cover version featuring several actors and singers of the song Beds are Burning by Australian rock band Midnight Oil, which will be available to download free from September.
So we’ll have to be patient a little while longer – but this campaign sounds interesting and hopefully it’ll achieve its aim.
I added more pictures to some albums of earlier events this month as well as replaced the recent Public Enemies stills with better ones.
I added the screencaptures and a clip of Marion Cotillard’s lovely & funny appearance on The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson last Monday night. Enjoy!
I have been working behind the scenes these past few days getting new material prepared and ready to upload to the site – so stay tuned!
Until then why don’t you read the interviews I added to the press archive:
• Tales from the red carpet, Chicago Now, June 18
• Accent was welcome task for Marion Cotillard, The Associated Press, June 23
• Marion Cotillard On The Complex Secrets Of ‘Inception’, MTV Blog, June 24
• Just a Minute With: French actress Marion Cotillard, Reuters, June 25
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.
Marion Cotillard graced the cover of Daily Telegraph Saturday insert Telegraph Magazine on June 20. Thanks to Lorna I’ve added the scans to the gallery. Please also take time to read the in-depth portrait/interview either on the scans or in our press archive, it’s really well worth your time!

She’s a great and real person who doesn’t fall into the movie stardom cliché. She is an artist first and foremost, and I’ve never seen anyone work so hard in my life. When you went into the rehearsal room, there she would be, working and working. She was just living the role. Daniel Day-Lewis was absolutely blown away by her, as I was, as anybody was.
- Rob Marshall, director of Nine
Kindly do not redistribute these scans at another Marion Cotillard fan site as they were obtained/donated exclusively for ‘Magnifique Marion Cotillard’. Thank you.
Finally, the pictures of Marion at Thursday’s ‘Public Enemies‘ premiere & after party in Chicago. Her ’50s-inspired Christian Dior dress with silver Sergio Rossi slingbacks and a red leather belt and bag were named Look of the Day by InStyle.com.
I also have some videos etc for you. But I’m currently battling a cold and should really stay in bed.
Cotillard spoke of Chicagoans’ enthusiasm for their city and mentioned that she lived near O’Brien’s during the shoot.
Depp and co-star Marion Cotillard briefly greeted the crowd, and seemed to have a pretty good rapport as they kibbitzed with each other before the screening.
The actors all raved about the city of Chicago and the people here. Cotillard said she was a fan of Gibson’s steakhouse.
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.
