Marion Cotillard attends ‘The Immigrant’ Premiere in NYC

Marion Cotillard attends ‘The Immigrant’ Premiere in NYC

After doing the press junket round last weekend to promote ‘The Immigrant‘ there was a screening of the movie at the Paley Center for Media in New York yesterday, sponsored by Dior, Cinema Society, Vanity Fair and Moët & Chandon. Surprisingly, Marion Cotillard wasn’t wearing Dior to the event but a knee-length Swiss lace frock from Mary Katrantzou’s much-lauded fall collection. Together with the fun up do she definitely was the epitome of exotic French elegance. Director James Gray and media-shy co-star Joaquin Phoenix also attended.

I didn’t expect to live an American dream, and I’m actually really living it. I just wanted to be an actress and tell great stories, but I didn’t expect to have the opportunity to work in this country.

After the screening, Marion Cotillard changed into a red silk Dior dress and headed to the after party at Beautique – where she was photographed with Isabella Rossellini. Thanks to Sofia there are tons of HQ pictures in the gallery for us to enjoy.

Don’t forget, ‘The Immigrant‘ will be out in the US this month. Check out the links below to various clips that have been released to start the US promotion for the movie.

Apparently, Marion Cotillard is expected later today at the Dior cruise 2015 show at the Brooklyn Navy Yard.

Marion Cotillard joined the Tiger Manifesto

Marion Cotillard joined the Tiger Manifesto

Marion Cotillard signed Greenpeace’s Tiger Manifesto:

“The thought of tigers becoming extinct is simply unbearable. Man has always fought for territories, now we must come together and fight for the tigers. We have the power to influence the way the products we consume are made. We have the power to protect the forests and the tigers. Please use this power now, join me and sign the Tiger Manifesto! ”
– Marion Cotillard

Greenpeace Tiger Manifesto

I’m fearless for forests! I want the products I use to be free from tiger extinction. Clearing their homes to make way for palm oil plantations in Indonesia must stop, especially when there are better solutions.

I look after myself and I want to know what’s in my products. Don’t make me part of the Sumatran tigers’ extinction.

Yes! I want the products I love to be tiger and forest friendly.
• There are solutions that don’t involve forest destruction. We want clean palm oil and we ask that our favourite brands listen to our voices.
• We believe immediate action must be taken to stop habitat destruction finding its way into the products we love.
• We have the right to know if our favourite products are linked to tiger extinction.

I also added the ‘Joan of Arc at the Stakepress release to our press archive. This is a quote from Marion Cotillard about the news (also see video below):

“It is a great joy for me to be part of this tremendous adventure of Jeanne d’Arc au bûcher staged by the inspired Côme de Bellescize. Sharing this experience with the New York Philharmonic and the great actors Éric Génovèse and Christian Gonon will be an amazing journey. I want to warmly thank Alan Gilbert and Matthew VanBesien for offering us such a great opportunity. I feel so lucky and I am looking forward to sharing this work, which is, at this point, one of my greatest experiences as an actress.”

Conductor Alan Gilbert calls her his hero and a brilliant actress and director Côme de Bellescize said that “it’s a great pleasure and honor to have the opportunity to work with Marion, especially for a play that has such meaning for her.”

The two times Marion Cotillard had taken on this role before were concert versions but this time it will be a staged version. Inspired by a gothic cathedral square Joan (Marion Cotillard) and the stake will be positioned on a platform in the middle of the orchestra. Côme de Bellescize has staged this version before, in 2012 in Japan.

Interestingly, in the notes for Côme de Bellescize’s recent play Amédée it says that he will not only recreate the 2012 staging of Jeanne au bûcher in New York but also in March 2015 in Paris – with Marion Cotillard. I can’t wait for more info!

Latest events update

Latest events update

As you have probably noticed we have been gradually adding photos of Marion’s latest public appearances. For the past two months, Marion has been traveling around to promote her two new films, Guillaume Canet’s ‘Blood Ties’ and James Gray’s ‘The Immigrant’. ‘Blood Ties’ is now out in France and Belgium. Promotion has included screenings at The Toronto Film Festival on September 9 and 10, attended by both Marion and Guillaume. Following that, Guillaume traveled along France during October and Marion attended a couple of the screenings in Bordeaux and Paris.

More recently, Marion has begun promotion for ‘The Immigrant’, which opens in France and Belgium on the 27 of November. She was in Lille for the first screening of what I figure will be a few ending with the premiere in Paris. She was accompanied by James Gray. Photos of all these events have been added.

Finally, and as we had reported before, Marion was honoured by Elle in Los Angeles on October 21. The event, Elle magazine’s “Women in Hollywood”, is an annual dinner that recognizes women for their impact on the film industry. Marion was honoured alongside Melissa McCarthy, Nancy Meyers, Reese Witherspoon, Naomie Harris, Eva Marie Saint, Shailene Woodley and Penelope Cruz.

During the show, Forest Whitaker, who worked with Marion in Mary, and also awarded her the Academy Award back in 2008, introduced Marion at the event.

When I first met her, I was in rapture. I am always astonished by the completeness in which she immerses herself in her roles.

During her speech, Marion spoke of her passion for her work and of why she loves to do what she does.

As far back as I can remember, I began questioning the world around me. Then I realized that by exploring different human beings and their stories, I felt the connection I was longing for. I know these women have also found answers in what they do, and share my passion for discovering the human soul.
