This is just a small update to let you know that Marion Cotillard (and Leonardo DiCaprio) are on the cover of the July issue of Studio Ciné Live. I will add scans as soon as I have the magazine. Also added another ‘Inception‘ still to the gallery.

Ahead of the ‘Inception‘ Premiere in Los Angeles on July 13, the movie will have its world premiere in London on July 8. If you’re in the UK you can win tickets on Facebook. According to Associated Press the press junket will be held this week. Thanks Nadine for all the heads up.
Already now the first production still with Marion Cotillard has popped up online and the official Inception Website has been updated with Wallpapers and Production Notes with interesting details about the international filming and technical aspects of creating a movie about dreams.
“His mind is so rich,” Marion Cotillard says, “and that’s one reason Chris is such an extraordinary director and writer. On a movie as imaginative as this, you need a director you can trust—someone to take your hand and share his vision—and I trusted him 100 percent. He really inspired me and gave me the keys I needed.”
MAL – THE SHADE
Mal, played by Marion Cotillard, is the love of Cobb’s life. “Mal is a tricky one to describe because she is a mix of so many things,” the actress says cryptically. “But maybe it’s the kind of thing you don’t describe because different people can have different interpretations.”
“Mal is the essence of the femme fatale,” states Nolan. “Marion brought an exceptionally haunting quality to her performance. What she was able to do with just her eyes and her emotional openness is quite beautiful. And she and Leo together portray an incredibly moving couple. Underneath all of the action, I think ‘Inception’ is very much founded on a love story, and these two actors found the truth of that in a most remarkable way.”
“Leo is such a gifted actor. I have always been a great fan of his work, so it was amazing to work with him,” Cotillard says. “His commitment is total and his intensity is unlimited. You can see it in his eyes. When you share a scene with him, you can trust everything he does because he’s so authentic.”
DiCaprio has equal praise for his co-star. “It was wonderful to act alongside Marion. She can be strong and vulnerable and hopeful and heartbreaking all in the same moment, which was perfect for all the contradictions of her character.”
Emma Thomas: “I especially loved what Jeffrey did with Mal’s costumes, like the gorgeous, flowing gown we first see her in. She is the femme fatale and her wardrobe reflects that.”

Over the past few days I was busy preparing for this huge post. I added clips and screencaptures of all the promotional interviews Marion Cotillard did for ‘Nine‘ – except talk shows. I also replaced some stills as well as the screencaptures of the 3rd trailer with better ones and added screencaptures of Marion rehearsing her dance routine.

To promote ‘Nine‘ The Weinstein Company have made a huge promotion deal with Disney. According to Variety we can expect the following:
• A new 2-minute trailer will debut on ABC on November 22 during the “American Music Awards”. It’ll also be shown on Lifetime, ABC Family, SoapNet, A&E and Bio.
• Tomorrow’s episode of ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” will feature a dance number set to the ‘Nine‘ song “Be Italian”. Dancers will also wear outfits from the movie.
• Throughout December ‘Nine‘ will be written into episodes of “All My Children,” “One Life to Live” and “General Hospital.”
• ABC.com will feature a micro-site dedicated to ‘Nine‘, including a sweepstakes, streaming of the movie trailer and – how exciting – a half-hour “Making of ‘Nine‘” special.
• Late night programmes and ABC’s owned stations will also be involved as well as ABC’s Times Square supersign.
Wow! This sounds like great news! In the meantime I added 3 new ‘Nine‘ stills to the gallery, 2 of which in HQ thanks to Red Rose.
Lots of ‘Le dernier vol‘ goodies: I added more gorgeous posters and stills to the gallery as well as totally adorable behind the scenes pictures. They’re quite small but lovely nonetheless. Additionally, I added some interviews and background information about the movie to the press archive. This is all in French, so if someone would like to provide translations, you’re very welcome to do so! All of this comes from the French Production Notes, many thanks Nadine for sharing!
Thanks to gossipcom I replaced the existing ‘Le dernier vol‘ (‘The Last Flight‘) stills except one with HQ versions and added many new ones. Additionally, she also shared the poster of the movie with us. Many thanks! This movie just looks so pretty and I can’t wait to see it! Probably, we’ll get a trailer soon.
Thanks to jannaclaire who uploaded the clip to YouTube we can all enjoy the brief sneak preview at ‘Nine‘s Behind the Scenes that ET aired yesterday. There are some new shots of Marion. Edit: Caps have since been replaced by HQ ones from official Rehearsal Montage.
There were some rumours that ‘Nine‘ would be pushed back. However, The Weinstein Company has officially issued the following statement to HitFix.com:
“The rumors are untrue. ‘Nine‘ is opening limted on November 25 and will continue to expand through Christmas.”
I added some additional HQ stills of a number of Marion’s movies that we didn’t have in our gallery before. Enjoy!

The release date for Rob Marshall’s star studded musical ‘Nine‘ is fast approaching – November 25 – and finally we get to see some more Marion stills. Though middle to low quality they’re definitely exciting, so enjoy!
TheProjectNine has kindly scanned the ‘Nine‘ feature in this week’s Entertainment Weekly. There is a lovely picture (with Marion) from group rehearsals.
Also some background information from Variety:
“Take It All,” originally written as a trio for Kidman, Cruz and Cotillard but, just before shooting, rearranged as a solo for Cotillard, according to music supervisor Matt Sullivan. “Heart-wrenching” is how Yeston describes the performance by Cotillard (who won an Oscar playing Edith Piaf).
Music director Paul Bogaev’s biggest job was working with the actors and preparing them to record the songs before shooting. Cotillard auditioned for the producer but was cast as the wife.
