More about ‘Contagion’ filming in Geneva
Remember the filming for ‘Contagion‘ that took place on January 14 in Geneva? John was there and has more information on the scenes that were being filmed. Thank you for sharing this with us!
There were two scenes: (1) Marion walking from the bus stop into the building and (2) Marion entering the building, showing her ID and walking to the elevator bank. Both scenes were very short (15 – 20 seconds) and there was no dialogue.
Maya Lucchitta managed to take some lovely shots of Marion Cotillard on the set. Many thanks for your permission to put them in our gallery. Please visit her blog to read her full report about the filming.

Picture & Details about ‘Contagion’ Filming
Since yesterday’s filming of the few exterior scenes at WHO in Geneva for ‘Contagion‘ has wrapped details about the shoot have surfaced. Veronica Riemer, of the World Health Organization’s communications department, said that about 80 people, actors, technicians and extras were at WHO from 5 am to 10.30 am. And contrary to some reports Marion Cotillard was the only star involved in the filming. Veronica Riemer added “She left for the airport immediately after the shoot. Everything went very well.”

Seeing as Marion’s character Dr. Leonora Orantes also has a scene at the Geneva airport they might have filmed this on location as well yesterday – like they did with her scene at the Hong Kong airport.
Janet managed to get a quick shot of Marion which she published on her blog. Many thanks for giving me permission to include it in our gallery!

Marion finished filming ‘Midnight in Paris’
New pictures of Marion Cotillard and Owen Wilson on the set of ‘Midnight in Paris from Wednesday night (August 4) have surfaced. Apparently, that was Marion’s last day of filming, as the last 2 pictures show where she’s holding flowers and wiping away tears.
Additionally, I’ve added more pictures from July 7 & 30. This means we now have 299 photos of Marion on the set of the Woody Allen pic. The filenames indicate which day the photographs are from.

Filming ‘Midnight in Paris’ on Monday
I added a few more pictures of Marion Cotillard on the set of the Woody Allen movie ‘Midnight in Paris‘ – mostly taken last Monday, July 26, but also 3 additional ones from July 5.
Woody Allen’s period movie just went into flashback mode. The director took over famed Paris eaterie Maxim’s on Monday night to shoot scenes for “Midnight in Paris” with Marion Cotillard and Owen Wilson.
Images taken on the set of the movie so far indicate the action is set in the Twenties, but the scenes filmed at Maxim’s, owned by Pierre Cardin, take place in the late 19th century, in what an insider described as a flashback within the film.
Cotillard donned a yellow dress for the ball scene, which featured some 40 extras, including musicians. Filming stretched into the wee hours, with exterior scenes featuring a coach and horses.

On the set of ‘Midnight in Paris’
Today, in a small quiet street in a popular quarter of Paris, filming for Woody Allen’s new movie ‘Midnight in Paris‘ started in a Haussmannian-style building of which the windows were blocked with black curtains. Everything about the set was very discreet yet we now know that the film is set in the Twenties (Source: AFP). How exciting! And as those pictures of Marion Cotillard – taken earlier today (Monday) – prove the time period is definitely flattering her!

Teaser Poster & Synopsis for ‘Les Petits Mouchoirs’
Thanks to Nadine for the heads up. In time for Cannes EuropaCorp released Teaser Posters of Guillaume Canet’s new movie ‘Les Petits Mouchoirs‘ starring among others Marion Cotillard. See a photo of it at Cannes here. This reminded me about the long overdue plot synopsis and description of Marion’s character:
Every year, Max, a successful restaurant owner, and Véro, his eco-friendly wife invite a merry group of friends to their beautiful beach house to celebrate Antoine’s birthday and kick-start the vacation. But, this year, before they all leave Paris, their buddy Ludo is hurt in a serious accident, which sets off a dramatic chain of reactions and emotional responses. The eagerly anticipated vacation leads each of the protagonists to raise the little veils that for years they have draped over what bothers and upsets them. Pretences become increasingly hard to keep up. Until the moment when the truth finally catches up with them all…
In an extended French synopsis Marion’s character Marie is described as a “liberated single”, who fiercely proclaims her independency and her thirst for new experiences. Guillaume Canet said in an interview with Le Figaro that Marion plays an ethnologist who spends the larger part of the year in Amazonia where she studies the Kayapo Indians. A way of running away, actually. It’s difficult for her to be involved in her own life. To take the plunge.

Additional Pictures of Lady Dior in Paris
Ahead of Saturday’s release of the new Lady Dior short movie set in Shanghai (and related publicity for that) some additional pictures of the campaign’s first chapter – set in Paris. At the time there was an article about the Print Ads shot by Peter Lindbergh in Madame Figaro. And a bit later some photographers spotted Marion Cotillard and Olivier Dahan in the streets of Paris on the set of the short movie Lady Noire Affair.

New picture from the ‘Inception’ set
Thanks for the heads up Nadine. The Daily Mail has new pictures from the set of ‘Inception‘, including one with Marion.
But looking at these shots from the set in downtown Los Angeles, it seems a rather complicated romantic interest could also be on the cards.
During the scene, Di Caprio calls frantically to Miss Cottilard as she leans rather coolly out of her own window.
The Titanic star must have a head for heights because he looked completely at ease in between takes.
