As part of Variety‘s SAG Preview: Actors on Actors Feature Marion Cotillard said the above about Kate Winslet as Adele in ‘Labour Day‘
As you have probably noticed we have been gradually adding photos of Marion’s latest public appearances. For the past two months, Marion has been traveling around to promote her two new films, Guillaume Canet’s ‘Blood Ties’ and James Gray’s ‘The Immigrant’. ‘Blood Ties’ is now out in France and Belgium. Promotion has included screenings at The Toronto Film Festival on September 9 and 10, attended by both Marion and Guillaume. Following that, Guillaume traveled along France during October and Marion attended a couple of the screenings in Bordeaux and Paris.
More recently, Marion has begun promotion for ‘The Immigrant’, which opens in France and Belgium on the 27 of November. She was in Lille for the first screening of what I figure will be a few ending with the premiere in Paris. She was accompanied by James Gray. Photos of all these events have been added.
Finally, and as we had reported before, Marion was honoured by Elle in Los Angeles on October 21. The event, Elle magazine’s “Women in Hollywood”, is an annual dinner that recognizes women for their impact on the film industry. Marion was honoured alongside Melissa McCarthy, Nancy Meyers, Reese Witherspoon, Naomie Harris, Eva Marie Saint, Shailene Woodley and Penelope Cruz.
During the show, Forest Whitaker, who worked with Marion in Mary, and also awarded her the Academy Award back in 2008, introduced Marion at the event.
When I first met her, I was in rapture. I am always astonished by the completeness in which she immerses herself in her roles.
During her speech, Marion spoke of her passion for her work and of why she loves to do what she does.
As far back as I can remember, I began questioning the world around me. Then I realized that by exploring different human beings and their stories, I felt the connection I was longing for. I know these women have also found answers in what they do, and share my passion for discovering the human soul.

Marion Cotillard is once again the face of a Lady Dior campaign. Photographed by Steven Klein and Jean-Baptiste Mondino for past Dior campaigns, it was photographer Tim Walker’s turn to capture the actress posing alongside Dior bags. Marion wore two designs from the French fashion house’s Resort 2014 collection by designer Raf Simons. The ads were featured two days ago in the Japanese edition of Vogue and are featured today in US’ Vanity Fair.
I have added the print ads from the campaign as well as the making of and its screen captures.
In other exciting news, the International trailer for ‘The Immigrant’ has finally been released! The movie opens in Belgium and France on November 27. A worldwide release has been pushed back with rumours claiming the film won’t be in US theatres before next spring. I have added new stills from the movies, the trailer itself and screen captures of the video. The entire production looks stunning, take a look!
