Marion Cotillard graced the cover of the 100th issue of French Glamour in July as well as of the Spanish August issue. I didn’t manage to make original scans of the French issue but did so of the Spanish one. Also check out our recent Magazine Wrap-Up post as I posted all the scans and articles etc from the recent Vogue, Elle and Grazia covers.

It’s been confirmed. Earlier today, the Telluride Film Festival unveiled (most of) their line-up and The Film Stage has the list as well as the press release. ‘Rust & Bone‘ will screen ahead of its screening in Toronto next week and Marion Cotillard is one of the festival’s honorees for her performance in it. She more than deserves it, congratulations!

The 2012 Silver Medallion Awards, given to recognize an artist’s significant contribution to the world of cinema, go to director and producer ROGER CORMAN who will present CORMAN’S WORLD: EXPLOITS OF A HOLLYWOOD REBEL (U.S., 2011), THE MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH (U.S.-U.K., 1964) and (THE INTRUDER (U.S., 1961); Academy Award-winning actress MARION COTILLARD (LA VIE EN ROSE) who stars in TFF selection RUST & BONE; and Danish actor MADS MIKKELSEN who stars in two TFF selections: THE HUNT and A ROYAL AFFAIR.

“At the core of each year’s Festival are the Tributes that allow our audiences a chance to gain insight into the creative process of the filmmakers and actors being celebrated,” said Co-Director Tom Luddy. “We are especially pleased with the balance this year, beginning with director/producer, Roger Corman, who has helped launch so many important careers. Then actress Marion Cotillard, whose early career in French films brought her to the attention of the world’s filmmakers and now stars in both European and American movies. Finally there is Mads Mikkelsen, the Danish actor whose powerful performances have brought him much international attention and increasing audience awareness in America.”

I recently fixed one of the videos of Marion Cotillard joining Maud Fontenoy & 300 kids on high sea as godmother of the Maud Fontenoy Fondation. Also La Chaîne de Cœur released a more extensive video about the successful collaboration between the Public Aid Association, the municipality of La Rochelle and the Maud Fontenoy Fondation – in fact they will repeat the experience next summer. I added screencaptures from the video as well as more photos from the event.

On another note, there are rumours that ‘Rust & Bone‘ will screen during the notoriously secretive Telluride Film Festival this weekend (August 31 – September 3) ever since Hollywood Elsewhere reported that there will be festival tributes for Mads Mikkelsen and Marion Cotillard. How exciting would that be?!

Marion Cotillard has said in recent interviews that she needs a break and that she had to say no to some very good projects. It seems Iranian director’s Ashgar Farhadi upcoming first French movie is one of them. The Playlist reports via Allocine that Bérénice Bejo replaces Marion Cotillard in the social thriller which starts filming in October and is scheduled for release next spring.

And Marion Cotillard together with director Jacques Audiard and costar Matthias Schoenaerts are expected to attend as they’re on the released guest list.

If you enjoyed NY Mag’s short summary of Marion’s latest interview you’ll no doubt enjoy Vulture‘s more extensive notes from the full transcript, which I added a while ago:
