I added loads of additional stills of Marion Cotillard in ‘Rust & Bone‘ (De rouille et d’os). Some of those are spoilery which is probably why they were only released after the movie came out on DVD & Blu-ray in France. The movie is currently screening in the US in New York & Los Angeles and will get a wider release tomorrow. On January 10 it will open in Germany. I also added 6 more subtitled video clips to the archive. There are now 10 clips. Enjoy – but if you haven’t seen the movie yet, I fear watching them all will spoil things too much.

Additionally, USA Today has some quotes from Marion Cotillard about her Golden Globe nomination and plans for the holidays – “My family. Home” – and about award season:

“I’m very happy. I’m very proud of this one. But above all, it’s the encounter with two amazing people and the crew we worked with to make this happen. I’m very happy for all of us. I want to celebrate the present time. I don’t want to think ahead. I want to enjoy what’s now and what’s here. I don’t get nervous at all. I’m just very happy about this movie’s journey so far.”

Cotillard: ‘Very happy about this movie’s journey’, USA Today

The Hollywood Reporter says Marion Cotillard was in Paris, staying at a friend’s house, when she heard that she received a Golden Globe nomination for best actress in a motion picture, drama, for Rust and Bone.

“I’m very happy for the movie, I’m very happy for French cinema. I’m very happy for French-language films,” says the actress, who mentions the nominations of Amour and The Intouchables for best foreign film as especially exciting. As for Jacques Audiard’s Rust and Bone, in which she plays a killer whale trainer who suffers a horrible accident, Cotillard says, “it’s really amazing to share a French movie with a U.S. audience. It’s a beautiful and very unconventional love story. It’s a movie that shows you can turn violence into power, and it’s a very beautiful and positive story.”

And here’s ‘Rust and Bone‘ director Jacques Audiard’s statement:

“We have been blessed with an impressive reception of the film in the US but this nomination comes as an unexpected honor. I am particularly happy for Marion. When you have shared a moment of pleasure with someone, it is always great to have the opportunity to extend it. This confirms the interest paid in recent years by the members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for French cinema. I am very happy to be part of this trend.”
