Le Monde featured an article about James Gray’s upcoming movie starring Marion Cotillard and Joaquin Phoenix in their magazine M this past weekend. I added digital scans (sorry for the somewhat poor quality). It featured new stills from the movie. It looks so exciting and I can’t wait to see the it. Apparently, the audience at a masterclass during the Zurich Film Festival last month – held by the movie’s producer Greg Shapiro – were also treated to some footage from the movie (Screendaily.com). However, it will probably be released next spring (Bluewin), so we have to be patient.

I added scans from this year’s features in both the UK & France edition of Marie Claire. The article is identical.

Also I found this article about Marion Cotillard & her little world featuring pictures from her childhood & her apartment at the time published during promotion for ‘Ma vie en l’air‘ in the 2005 September issue of France’s Marie Claire. We already had bits from the interview in the press archive, but now you can read the full version. Enjoy!

The second episode of the new Lady Dior Documentary is online! Apart from continuing to show the process of creating Marion’s dream robe and some history of the house Dior we see Marion jumping around & dancing at a photoshoot. I wonder when we’ll see the pictures taken that day. And at the end we even hear her sing.

From the workshops at 30, avenue Montaigne to the markets of the Palais des Festivals in Cannes, Marion Cotillard invites us into her fairytale life and continues to write the story of a passion-filled union between fashion and cinema.

Visit LadyDior.com to see 3 bonus videos showing work being done close-up & another Dior history clip.
