One down, one to go! Marion shone at Cannes on Monday for the premiere of her first film in the festival, Guillaume Canet’s Blood Ties. Early in the day, wearing a gorgeous Antonio Berardi dress, she attended the photocall for the film alongside Guillaume, Zoe Saldana, Clive Owen and James Caan. She seemed to be having a lot of fun laughing about with Zoe and signing autographs for the fans upon arrival.
The traditional press conference ensued and Marion was complimented on her Italian accent by an Italian journalist. A very fun moment where she said she wanted to kiss him! You can watch the press conference on the Official Festival site with English voice over.
Later in the evening the premiere took place. Marion looked stunning in a strapless Dior gown as she walked the red carpet with her co-stars. After the premiere, they headed out for the After Party and cocktail hosted by Dior. Marion changed into a simpler, black Dior gown for the party.
I have added photos from the entire day to the gallery as well as the poster and trailer for Blood Ties.
Finally, with the premiere of The Immigrant taking place this Friday, here are a couple of articles about the film you might enjoy reading:

As the Cannes Film Festival unfolds, Marion Cotillard has made her first appearance at the event. On Friday she attended the Chopard Lunch and posed alongside Fan Bingbing, Livia Firth, Colin Firth, and Laura Baily. The lunch promoted a partnership between Chopard and the Alliance for Responsible Mining for a closer relationship between luxury and sustainability. Marion looked cool and summery in a Vivienne Westwood dress and Jimmy Choo tan sandals. She completed the look with a Chopard ring.
The next day, Marion was spotted at the Dior Cruise Collection 2014 show held in Monaco, wearing a Raff Simons design.
Marion’s movies Blood Ties (Guillaume Canet) and The Immigrant (James Gray) will be screened at Cannes on the 20th and 25th of May, respectively, so we should expect to see her throughout this week!

Cannes: Bradley Cooper Commits To ‘Chef’ As Cease And Desist Goes To Jon Favreau’s Rival Chef Pic
Bradley Cooper has now formally confirmed to star in the John Wells-directed Chef, making this one of the early projects stirring action from foreign buyers who can now visualize the Silver Linings Playbook star back in meltdown mode in this Shampoo-like drama. He plays a Paris chef named Adam Jones, who destroys his wunderkind status in a blaze of decadence and out of control behavior. He cleans up and returns to Paris sober, determined to redeem himself by spearheading a top restaurant that can gain three Michelin stars. This has been in the works a bit, and recently Cooper saw Wells’ upcoming TWC Oscar-bait movie August: Osage County and then TWC set Wells to direct Chef. They are now looking to round out that cast, and I’m hearing Michelle Williams and Marion Cotillard as potential female leads, and Omar Sy for co-starring role. The film’s produced by Stacey Sher, Erwin Stoff and Michael Shamberg.
Over the past few weeks I updated the gallery with all the recent pictures of Marion Cotillard at various events. Notably, she visited Japan to promote ‘Rust & Bone‘ (De rouille et d’os) at the end of March and around the movie’s theatrical release there in April many additional stills and promotional pictures were released. If you live in Japan and have additional pictures and/or videos, please don’t hesitate to send them in!
I know, the Cannes Film Festival is around the corner and I’m beyond excited for Marion Cotillard’s new movies but I will not – or only sparingly – be updating this site with new things. There’s never a good time to quit but I still feel the way I posted back in December 2011 and will thus focus on updating this site with all the missing pictures, scans and videos from the past before leaving the site as an open archive.

Marion Cotillard and her ‘The Dark Knight Rises‘ co-star Gary Oldman star in David Bowie’s new music video ‘The Next Day‘, the title track of his latest album. The clip was written and conceived by David Bowie himself and directed by Floria Sigismondi.
The video shows Gary Oldman in priest’s garb punching a beggar on his way into a brothel-looking club. Inside, in one corner, a man whips his bloody back. In another scene, a cardinal passes out cash to scantily clad dancers. A woman with a veil drawn over her face has a platter with two eyeballs staring up from it. There’s also a praying nun. Gary Oldman’s priest joins other priests dirty dancing with prostitutes. Marion Cotillard and her scantily clad colleagues go along with the priests’ requests with looks of complete disinterest. All the while David Bowie sings in a monk’s robe – or some say he’s dressed up as Jesus – from the corner of the room and seems to condemn Oldman’s actions. Cotillard swivels seductively, only to collapse with blood pouring from her stigmata wounds before rising again like a saint.
YouTube temporarily pulled the clip hours after its release yesterday because it violated the site’s Terms of Service (probably due to graphic religious imagery and gore) but re-instated it 2 hours later with an adult-only rating for its graphic content. A spokesperson told Billboard via email that it was taken down by mistake. “With the massive volume of videos on our site, sometimes we make the wrong call. When it’s brought to our attention that a video has been removed mistakenly, we act quickly to reinstate it.”
Marion Cotillard is a fan of David Bowie. She previously performed the David Bowie song ‘Velvet Goldmine’ as a duo with Yodelice on the French TV Show Taratata back in November 2010. On the same show she chose David Bowie for her personal Taratata show – “because he’s a real genius and there’s really no need to say more about him.”
