I’m back from my travels for a few days so I’ll be doing my best to catch up on what’s going on in Marion Cotillard’s world. To begin, some additional HQ pictures of her during the Los Angeles ‘Inception‘ Press Conference in Los Angeles last month. To know what was being said during the Press Conference you can listen to a recording at HollywoodNews.com or read the transcript at Moviesonline.ca.
Due to filming ‘Midnight in Paris‘ Marion didn’t attend the London Press Conference (although she did make it to the world premiere Thursday evening – more on that later). However, she was present during the Press Conference in Paris on Friday ahead of its premiere there on Saturday. You can watch the entire conference with English/French audio on FilmoSphere France’s YouTube Channel. There’s also another cute video from a different angle of Marion & Leonardo singing each other’s praises, edited by and courtesy of Le Parisien.

A few hours ago, the press embargo on ‘Inception‘ was lifted and the reviews have been pouring in! And they’re absolutely raving! To get an overview – without getting spoilers – please visit Nolan Fans’ Review Post. Here some Marion quotes I found:
Marion Cotillard, who keeps surprising us with her versatility. She explodes off the screen here – like a vivid flame, flickering in and out.
– Awards Daily
And although she has less screen time than the rest of the cast, Cotillard shines as the film’s cloest thing to a femme fatale. She’s certainly better served here than she was in Public Enemies.
The actors certainly give it their all: Cotillard is a presence both sultry and menacing.
A terrific Marion Cotillard
– Box Office Magazine
In Inception that loss of control – the scariest thing Nolan can imagine, it seems – is represented in the haunting beauty of Marion Cotillard.
There’s another very good comment about Marion from HitFix.com – but it’s a bit spoiler-ish so I’m putting it below the cut.
Earlier tonight on Friday, Marion Cotillard along with 7 other actors from the movie together with director Chris Nolan and score composer Hans Zimmer attended a press conference and photo call for ‘Inception‘ at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles.

More ‘Inception‘ promotion material is appearing online. In the new ‘Meet the Characters’ featurette Marion Cotillard as Mal is featured with a line for the first time. I’ve added high quality screencaps of that moment. And those new stills just look gorgeous!
