Of course Marion Cotillard also attended the press conference for ‘De rouille et d’os‘ (Rust & Bone) ahead of its premiere last Thursday. Also present were co-star Matthias Schoenaerts, director Jacques Audiard and co-writer Thomas Bidegain. It’s really an interesting watch (again, with simultaneous translation into English) on the official Festival website. Or watch the edited version above to only see Marion’s bits.

Filming for ‘Low Life‘ (Untitled James Gray Project) wrapped earlier this month and a wrap party was held at The Electric Room on March 18. NY Post Page Six reports:
Marion Cotillard handed out gifts to fellow cast and crew at a wrap party Sunday night for the untitled, 1920s James Gray-directed project she filmed with Joaquin Phoenix and Jeremy Renner. Cotillard, who came with partner Guillaume Canet, fashioned giant clothespins for each cast and crew member with his or her name and unique decorations, and passed them out all night during the party at Nur Khan’s Electric Room in the Dream Downtown.
The movie is currently in post-production for 15 weeks and director James Gray hopes to have it ready for the Toronto International Film Festival when he spoke to The Playlist:
I think it’s going to be my best work. What I shot was not just my best work, but the actors doing their best and I’m very excited about it for that reason. I’m extremely excited, like I said it’s the best thing I’ve done.
The French theatrical release date for ‘Un goût de rouille et d’os ‘ (Rust & Bone) has been pushed forward from October to May 17, 2012 – the day after the Cannes Film Festival opens. This is most likely confirmation of the rumours that the movie will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival.
Earlier this month new casting for Guillaume Canet’s upcoming movie ‘Blood Ties‘ was announced via The Hollywood Reporter. Mark Wahlberg is no longer attached to the project but Clive Owen came on board the adaptation of the French novel Les liens du sang. Additionally to Zoe Saldana and Marion Cotillard her ‘Big Fish‘ co-star Billy Crudup and fellow Dior muse Mila Kunis were cast. And Marion’s ‘Rust & Bone‘ co-star Matthias Schoenaerts has an offer for a role while ‘Low Life‘ director James Gray helped Guillaume Canet write the screenplay.
The story centers on a younger brother (Crudup) who has to ask his convict older brother (Owen) to go back into the underworld to help out the family. Kunis and Cotillard play love interests. If the finanacing comes together, the movie will head for an April start in New York.
On January 16, Marion attended the 2012 Chaumet’s Cocktail Party and Dinner for Cesar’s Revelations in Paris.
I added a lot more pictures of Marion Cotillard attending the New York premiere of ‘Contagion‘ last Wednesday. I also found videos of her being interviewed by Associated Press, Access Hollywood and MTV News.
The latter can’t be viewed from outside the US so many thanks to Iria from Damian Lewis Web for sending it in for our video archive. It’s especially interesting because she says her character in ‘The Dark Knight Rises‘ is not based on the comic books – which means that the speculation that her character Miranda Tate might be an alias for her real character Talia al Ghul might prove to be just that, specualation only. Read more about this on ScreenRant.com.
Marion was also interviewed by Extra TV, E! and Entertainment Tonight. I haven’t been able to find any interview footage yet so if you do please let me know. Thanks!

Wearing black floor length Christian Dior dress from the Fall 2011 collection – with an embroidered lace skirt, embellishment details on the chest and a sexy open back – together with a cute braided updo Marion Cotillard looked perfect on Wednesday’s New York premiere of ‘Contagion‘. I started adding pictures, expect more soon.
