On her way from the US west coast to France, Marion Cotillard attended a screening of ‘Rust and Bone‘ (De rouille et d’os) at the Landmark Sunshine Cinema in New York on Thursday evening. It was hosted by The Cinema Society with Dior & Vanity Fair. She was wearing a transparent Christian Dior Spring 2013 dress with black pointy Dior heels (which reportedly caused some problems). Co-star Matthias Schoenaerts & director Jacques Audiard were delayed due to the snowstorm and only arrived in time for the after party at Indochine – which Marion however had to miss since she had to catch her flight to France.

On the red carpet Vulture asked Marion Cotillard about how she feels when she hears the Katy Perry song ‘Firework’:

After flying in from London and appearing on the Jay Leno Show last week but before attending the US Gala Premiere of ‘Rust & Bone‘ at the AFI Fest on Monday, Marion Cotillard (and co-star Matthias Schoenaerts, director Jacques Audiard and co-writer Thomas Bidegain) spent a weekend promoting the movie at press junkets and during Q&As at industry screenings.

HitFix.com were among those interviewing Marion Cotillard on Saturday morning and will later post their interview.

Later that day, there was a SAG AFTRA screening at the Harmony Gold theater. During the Q&A she praised Chris Nolan and said “When it’s meant to be, love will find a way.” (Sources on Twitter: Serena Orrego, Grégoire Swan, Ana Parsons, Satu Makeda, Logan McPeak, Patricia Gold and Josh the Intern)

Then, on Sunday, there was another Q&A held by the Academy of Motion Pictures and Sciences at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater:

As the US release of ‘Rust and Bone‘ (De rouille et d’os) is approaching – November 23 in New York and December 6 in Los Angeles – Sony Classics updated the official movie site with actual content last week. It looks great, so be sure to visit!

Marion Cotillard taped 2 talk show appearances (Chelsea Lately and Craig Ferguson) this Tuesday. However, they weren’t aired as it was election day in the US. My guess is they made use of a free day to get her on tape while she was still in the States – she’s expected back in France tomorrow and will later head to Barcelona, Spain – but will air the interviews closer to the release of the movie. The Craig Ferguson interview is actually scheduled to air on November 20. I’ll keep my eyes open for the Chelsea Lately air date.

In the mean time some various promotion material from recent days:

Luise and I added some pictures of Marion Cotillard dressed in Dior with Chopard jewellery at last night’s US gala premiere of ‘Rust and Bone‘ (De rouille et d’os) during the AFI Fest. Before the screening there was also a tribute to Marion Cotillard and her career. Watch part of it below. I also added some screencaps from her red carpet interview as well as pictures from the after party.

After a reel of footage highlighting the best films of her career thus far, the radiant Marion Cotillard graced the stage for a quick conversation before the curtain rose for her latest contribution to French Cinema, Rust and Bone. She humbly admitted that it was “super weird” and almost “schizophrenic” to see footage of herself spliced together because the characters are all her, yet they’re all different people. When asked about the path that led to her success in acting, she confided in a time when she considered leaving the profession to pursue something else, but meeting with Tim Burton and getting a role in Big Fish convinced her to stick with it. And it’s a good thing she did. Since then, she’s secured roles she feels passionate about, in both French and American films, leading her to an Oscar win for Best Actress for La vie en rose (2007), and teaming up with the likes of Michael Mann, Woody Allen, Steven Soderburgh, and Christopher Nolan along the way. After the brief sit-down, director Jacques Audiard took the stage to introduce his cast, including Matthias Schoenaerts, who, as if in character, appropriately cued the feature presentation with an exclamation of, “Open the curtain, show the movie.”
