First Still from ‘Macbeth’

First Still from ‘Macbeth’

Macbeth‘ recently finished shooting and Baz Bamigboye visited the set while they were filming at Ely Cathedral (March 20-24) which was standing in for Dunsinane Castle. He now published a report which includes mostly an interview with Michael Fassbender who plays Macbeth – and two new stills, one featuring Marion Cotillard as Lady Macbeth. Here some quotes:

Fassbender refers to his screen wife as ‘Lady M’, and together, they make as powerful a screen couple as I’ve observed in many years.

‘He’s suffering from post traumatic stress disorder,’ Fassbender told me later. It makes total sense, when you think about it. Justin set the seed of the idea in my head. This trauma is something we know about. In World War I they called it battle fatigue, and it was probably more horrific in Macbeth’s days, when they were killing with their bare hands, and driving a blade through bodies. He’s having these hallucinations, and he needs to return to the violence to find some sort of clarity, or peace. He’d been away fighting and when he returns, we see it’s a relationship that’s broken down. They lost a child, and there wasn’t time for them to grieve because he’s been away campaigning.’

However, the couple do reconnect. ‘Lady M is desperate for that reconnection, and briefly they do. And, of course, the doorway has been opened to darkness and to violence,’ Fassbender said. After Duncan is murdered, Lady M hopes that this ‘fantastical deed, this terrible deed, this extraordinary deed of killing a king will be something that will bond them together’. But once the blood is spilled, it leads to more and more killings. ‘He’s wary of doing it,’ Fassbender said, ‘but Lady M bolsters him, and tells him to garner his strength.’

He explained that the cast speak with Scottish accents — all apart from Lady M, the Oscar-winning French actress Ms Cotillard. ‘We felt it would be unreasonable for her to put on a Scottish accent. It would not be unreasonable to presume that her character spent time in the French court.’

Madame Figaro, Deux Jours Une Nuit, Updates

001.jpg 001.jpg 001.jpg 002.jpg

In July, Marion Cotillard was once again on the cover of Madame Figaro in France. Known for her passion for the environment, the magazine interviewed her for their “Green” edition and the interview was focused on Marion’s views and every day contributions to the environment. At the end of the article, they did a list of Marion’s six commandments for the environment in which she says she never takes long baths (to save water) and that she cleans her house with white vinegar. The photoshoot for the article is brand new and shot by photographer Jan Welters who had worked with her in 2010 for ELLE

Other than that, Marion has been busy shooting the new movie by the Dardenne brothers. They began rehearsals in June and have been shooting in Belgium for the past few weeks. I added a photo of Marion holding the one month old that was chosen to participate in the movie. You can read the article (in French) here.

During rehearsals, a bakery was chosen in a small town for the shooting of one scene Marion was in. The owners of the bakery, who were present for filming and who played themselves in the movie described Marion as very professional, focused and somewhat shy.

‘Blood Ties’ French Release Date & On Set pics

Luise recently added more pics of Marion Cotillard and Clive Owen on the set of ‘Blood Ties‘ on June 20.

The movie will be distributed in France by Mars Distribution and they tweeted last week that ‘Blood Ties‘ will be released in French theatres on October 30, 2013.

I also added digital scans of the December/January edition of French Premiere magazine. Apart from a small preview of the James Gray movie ‘Lowlife‘ it features a lengthy interview with Guillaume Canet about the process of writing, casting and directing ‘Blood Ties‘, his first movie in English and shot in New York, US. There’s only one picture of Marion and little information but we learn that Guillaume is a fan of hers beyond what connects them in real life.

Filming for 'Rust & Bone' Continues

As on Tuesday, Marion Cotillard and Matthias Schoenarts continued to film for ‘Un goût de rouille et d’os‘ (Rust & Bone) on a private beach called Goéland in Cannes yesterday (source). Their characters Stéphanie and Ali were taking a dip in the ocean. Marion was seen sitting in a wheelchair and it was made to look as if she was wearing prosthetics from the knees downwards. Although the production was trying hard to cut off the view to the set to ensure privacy many of the pictures taken seem very intrusive (those are not included in this update) so I hope production moves to a more secluded area soon.
