‘Le dernier vol’ screening on Saturday
‘Le dernier vol‘ will be shown as the closing gala at the 30th European Film Festival in Belgium this Saturday, November 14. More information
It is highly unlikely that Marion will be able to attend as she’s expected to be at the taping of the Oprah show with the ‘Nine‘ gang. Also she’s due to attend the press junket of the movie on the weekend as well as the Variety screening and Q&A on the 16th. Thanks Nadine for the heads up!
‘Public Enemies’ Official World Premiere
Last week, ‘Public Enemies‘ had its “official” world premiere during the Los Angeles Film Festival. Marion Cotillard together with Johnny Depp, Christian Bale and Michael Mann – along with many of the other stars of the movie – attended the premiere. Finally, I’ve added the pictures. Enjoy!

Dior & Elle Magazine Party
On May 22 Dior and ELLE magazine hosted a dinner in honor of Marion Cotillard at the Hotel du Cap Eden-Roc. The hotel’s furnishings were all covered in red Chinese silk and Marion, who attended together with Guillaume Canet, matched the Asian flare of the event by wearing a crimson bustier dress. Here some of her quotes:
Cannes is every bit as glamorous as the Oscars
Being Lady Dior is fabulous. I meet beautiful people and go to amazing parties. But most of all I love John; he’s so unique and creative. I like people who take risks, and he’s the boldest designer of them all.
I get to wear amazing Dior dresses, but I don’t get to keep them,” she smiled. “They all go into this magical archive!

amfAR Cinema Against AIDS
Last week on May 21 during the Cannes Film Festival Marion Cotillard together with Guillaume Canet attended the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS event at the Hotel du Cap. A journalist from the Black Book Magazine was also there and mentioned Marion favourably:
and any crack at carrying a half-decent conversation with the likes of … Marion Cotillard, who takes the prize for grace, dignity and professionalism, is best forgotten. It’s too loud to have a talk.
I’ve added pictures of the arrivals, dinner and after party. Apart from Guillaume, she was also photographed with Cécile Cassel, Mélanie Laurent and Sharon Stone among others. Enjoy!

Cannes: Moët Lounge + Out & About
I’ve added HQ pictures of Marion Cotillard signing a bottle for charity in the Moët Lounge, probably before or after the ‘Nine‘ promotional event which took place on May 18 – as well as 2 pictures of her in front of her hotel with a friend on May 19.
Further reinforcing its century-long love affair with the international film industry, Moët & Chandon the champagne of cinema, today opens its “Moët Lounge Cannes 2009”, an exclusive VIP hotspot at the private beach venue, Bâoli Beach, in celebration of the 62nd annual Cannes Film Festival.
With prime positioning on the iconic Croisette, “Moët Lounge Cannes 2009” is an invitationonly prestige venue that will host an array of film soirées, cinema-inspired art exhibitions and celebrations from 14-24 May. During the festival, Moët will invite A-list celebrities and filmmakers to autograph 15-liter Nebuchadnezzar bottles for charity, a now legendary cinema tradition that the House began decades ago at iconic film festivals and awards around the globe.

The Chopard Trophy – Party
After handing out the Chopard trophies to the young actors Marion Cotillard together with Guillaume Canet joined many stars for the official Chopard Trophy Evening at the Baoli restaurant – where DJ Stéphane Pompougnac provided the entertainment.
And surprise, she completely changed her outfit: she wore a lovely midnight blue bustier dress (matching with Guillaume’s elegant midnight blue/black suit), a more natural make up, beige high heels and a similar necklace but this time around with a dark jewel instead of a white one. Reportedly, this was because the other dress was torn and it caused her to arrive 3 hours late. But who cares, see the result in the gallery. I also added a few more pictures to the previous Cannes galleries.
Watch a short video summary of the actual Chopard Trophy Ceremony on this year’s co-host Premiere magazine’s website.

I’ve added an article from someone who met Marion Cotillard at the annual Gaumont lunch, where she was promoting Le dernier vol. She revealed her 2008 Halloween costume:

Marion Cotillard celebrated ‘Nine‘ together with the movie’s producer The Weinstein Company earlier today. Her co-star Penélope Cruz was supposed to stand next to her. Unfortunately, she was sidelined by “some sort of food poisoning.” People.com reports:
Harvey Weinstein passed on the bad news to a select group of journalists. He then introduced Academy Award winner Marion Cotillard, another star of the ensemble piece. “It was an amazing adventure, it was my dream to be in an American musical,” Cotillard said. “I really hope you are going to love what you are going to see.”
Weinstein added, “When you see [Cotillard] sing, when you see her dance, we bring back a tradition that we need to do more of.”

Chopard Trophy Ceremony today
The reason why Marion Cotillard will be making an official appearance at the Cannes Film Festival today is because she’s to present at the Chopard Trophy Ceremony at the Martinez Hotel tonight. She herself won the award back in 2004 – after her work in Love Me If You Dare and A Very Long Engagement received much praise.
Remember, between 7.05 and 9.00 pm she’s also scheduled to appear on Le Grand Journal which airs on Canal+. The broadcast will later be available online but I’d still love to have HQ screencaptures for the gallery if anyone’s able to record it for us. Thanks!
