Early review of “Public Enemies”
Ain’t It Cool News have a very early review up – it’s tentatively optimistic. Since the reviewer didn’t get to see the final product yet he advises: “it’s probably just better to wait until next summer and not know anything about it when you go in.” So read at your own peril. Here the Marion related part:
The best part is the love story between Dillinger and actress Marion Cotillard from La Vie en Rose, who plays a bright girl leading a fairly simple life who Dillinger falls in love with (rather quickly – but it’s humorous and it works). Their relationship is well developed and the most effective storyline, interleaved well in to the movie as to not take away from the action for too long… which is important because that is what michael mann does best and there’s plenty of it in this movie.
Thanks patel for the heads up!
‘Public Enemies’ Wrap Party
As reported by 312 Shining Diva – a blog about Chicago’s nightlife – yesterday the official wrap party of ‘Public Enemies‘ took place. No media was allowed so most likely we won’t get any pictures.
An hour later, Oscar winner Marion Cotillard (“La Vie en Rose”) sashayed in wearing a floral tee and jeans.
The film is slated for a theatrical release in the US on July 1, 2009. With filming for ‘Public Enemies‘ now being over Marion Cotillard can hopefully take some much deserved vacation before rehearsals for ‘Nine‘ start (reportedly) July 28.
More pictures from the set of ‘Public Enemies’
Thank you everyone who emailed me about this and posted links in the forum. I’ve now added some additional pictures of Marion Cotillard as Billie Frechette taken on the set of ‘Public Enemies’ to the gallery. Some of those date back to the end of April and the newer batch is from last week. Doesn’t she look sublime? I can’t wait for this movie. The gallery now contains a total of 24,000 (!) pictures.

To see further details on how to prepare before going to the casting call be sure to read through the information on the afore-mentioned page carefully.
