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.”

I added some pictures and screencaptures of Marion Cotillard at last Wednesday’s Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year Awards. Part of her acceptance speech and an interview backstage was released in a video on the magazine’s website.

Sorry for the delay (I had some technical difficulties) but already on Saturday Luise added stills of Marion Cotillard on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno from the previous night and I added HD screencaptures of both her interview and the rest of the show. Now, the video is also in our archive & ready for you to watch. It’s one of Marion’s best TV appearances in my opinion. The questions were good and she had perfect timing with being both serious and funny. Highlights include miming, telling a joke and relating the jellyfish incident which happened on the set of ‘Rust & Bone‘. There’s also a new clip from the movie.
The Spanish newspaper El Periódico published an interview with Marion Cotillard about her upcoming performances in Arthur Honegger’s iconic 1938 oratorio Jeanne au Bûcher (“Joan of Arc at the Stake”) at the Barcelona Auditori on November 17 & 18. Marc Soustrot is conducting the Orquestra Simfònica de Barcelona i Nacional de Catalunya along with the Vivaldi, Liedercamera and Madrigal choirs. As previously announced the November 17 performance will be presented by medici.tv in a Live Webcast (2pm EST). Check out our past updates as well as their press release in English for more information.
Anyway, back to the interview. In it she talks about why this project means so much to her that she is reprising the role after performing the oratorio already in her hometown Orléans back in 2005, how her parents performed it when she was a child, what the challenges of the performances will be as well as wardrobe choices! I translated the article with help of Google Translator and a dictionary. I hope I got it right. Enjoy!
