Magnifique Marion Cotillard: New Layout

Magnifique Marion Cotillard: New Layout

Welcome to the new version of Magnifique Marion Cotillard! The banner here on the main site as well as the new gallery layout were created by the talented Laura. Thank you! There are a few new things worth mentioning. Mostly, that the press, video and audio archives are included in the main site. This means that you will always spot new additions by visiting the main site. If you only wish to see the news and updates you can do so by clicking the item in the navigation.

The old video archive will soon be deleted as the script is outdated. We’ve saved all the videos and information and will be including it on the main site here – as the movie trailers and clips and some interviews already have.

Check it out: New press, video and audio archives.

Sofia and I have also worked hard on the projects section. As of now all feature films and music videos from Marion Cotillard’s CV have been added (we will add more information to some of these) and we will be adding the short films and TV projects in the near future. There’s also a new awards page – each award automatically also gets displayed on the corresponding project page.

Finally, the biography has been updated (this was long overdue as the previous version was from 2007). Check it out!

All in all I hope you enjoy this new version as much as I do. Hopefully, it will also make it easier to spot new additions to the site. Thank you for your Feedback!

Marion Cotillard's early TV Appearances

As you may have noticed Sofia came on board just before the Cannes Film Festival to help keep the site stay updated. She’s been doing a great job with adding all the latest info, HQ event pics & magazine scans. Not only that but she also added new HQ pictures of Marion Cotillard’s early TV appearances. Thank you! Be sure to check them out!

On December 28, 2002 Marion Cotillard appeared on the first edition of French TV Show “Défis des stars” (Challenges for stars). Directed by Pascal Duchêne and moderated by Nikos Aliagas and Star Academy finalist Eva 20 brave actors, singers and comedians faced challenges that revolved around the circus such as animal training, juggling, magic and cabaret acts. Marion performed using a magic wand. Judging by the screencaps by Erik she was also an assistant in one of the magic acts. Fellow participants included her co-stars from ‘Taxi‘ (Samy Nacéri performed with 4 tigres from Circus Yann Gruss and Frédéric Diefenthal with bears from Circus Phénix) and ‘Les jolies choses‘ (Ophélie Winter performed on aerial silk and Titoff in another act). Elie Semoun, Véronique Genest, Gérard Jugnot, L5, Sophie Ellis Bextor, Grégori Baquet, Anthony Kavanagh, Patrick Timsit and Pascal Sellem were also part of the show.

Moderator Nikos said in advance: “I don’t know whether it will work for viewers. But I think it’s very nice to see the stars in different roles, to see them in burlesque, funny or dangerous situations. There will be music, entertainment, it will be a party. It’s the end of the year, so we will finish it in a good mood, with completely original and magical images.” And they succeeded for the newspaper Le Parisien later called it an original evening.

Does anybody have videos of any of the shows we’ve added pictures of – or of Marion Cotillard’s other television appearances? Please send them in, we’d be very thankful!

Brand-New Layout

After nearly 2 years (22 months) I was finally starting to get bored with the previous layout – however gorgeous it was. So Mel from Vintage Dreams designed the new look for the main site, the gallery & the video archive with pictures from the recent Grazia feature. Also a big thank you to Laura for her help with the video templates. I hope there aren’t any bugs – otherwise let me know.

I also started working on updating the information pages – while I’m by no means done yet, you can check out the progress over the coming weeks. In the meantime, how do you like the new look?

Finally a new look!

After nearly 1.5 years Magnifique Marion Cotillard has a new look! Not only do we have a fantastic layout for the main site, Mycah from Purple Haze Inc. created also matching looks for our second domain marion-media.org where you can find the extensive Photo Gallery and Video Archive as well as for our Twitter Page. I’m so excited about the results and hope you enjoy it as much as I do! Thank you for leaving your comments.

The pictures for the layout are from the 2009 Madame Figaro shoot and in my opinion showcase the different aspects of Marion’s personality perfectly! The site should look fine in all browsers though the best result will be when using Firefox!

Update about Marion-Media.org

Today I finished what I set out to do over a year ago! I transferred all video clips from the old to the new video archive – bringing the total count in the new archive to 250. There’s nothing really new except 2 videos: Cinema.nl – Interview and CBS News – 2007/06/17.

To simplify the url to the gallery now that the old video archive has become redundant I moved the whole gallery installation to the root of marion-media.org. All links to the gallery here on the main site have been successfully updated! Except those in the old section of the site which are still pointing to the very first gallery installation. In due time, they too, should get updated.
