As previously announced, Marion Cotillard & Matthias Schoenaerts were interviewed on Le Grand Journal in Cannes right after the opening ceremony. Tomorrow will be a big day for them as it’s the day of the premiere!
Canal+ asked different people about their experiences at the Cannes Film Festival. Marion’s interview was put online yesterday. And today, TF1 News aired an interview with Marion about ‘De rouille et d’os‘ (Rust & Bone) and her co-star Matthias Schoenaerts.
Earlier this afternoon she arrived at Cannes and will be interviewed during Rencontres de cinéma at 6.15pm just before tonight’s opening ceremony and then also during Le grand journal with Matthias Schoenaerts, both on Canal+. Tomorrow at 9am she and director Jacques Audiard will be interviewed on the radio RTL during Laissez-vous tenter.
Walter Salles’ On the Road, Lee Daniels’ The Paperboy and Michael Haneke’s Amour will join Rust and Bone by Jacques Audiard and David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis for a trip to the 65th annual Cannes Film Festival.
Also screening in the competition are Holy Motors by Leos Carax, The Angels’ Share by Ken Loach, John Hillcoat’s Lawless, which stars Shia LaBoeuf, Tom Hardy, Guy Pearce and Gary Oldman alongside Jessica Chastain in a Prohibition-era drama, and more U.S. titles such as Jeff Nichols’ Mud and Andrew Dominik’s Killing Them Softly with Brad Pitt and Ray Liotta. All in all, U.S. filmmakers will have a strong presence on the Croisette this year.
President Gilles Jacob and artistic director Thierry Fremaux announced the official selection for the May 16-27 festival at a press conference in Paris late Thursday morning.
While the 2011 competition lineup was light on U.S. directors and star power, the Cannes team certainly made up for it this year. “American cinema has come back relatively en force,” Fremaux said.
Pitt, Robert Pattinson, Nicole Kidman and Marion Cotillard and Matthew McConaughey — who both have multiple projects in Cannes — will add glam to the fest as they make their way down the world’s most famous cinema catwalk.
