Jonathan Ross – former BBC presenter of Film 2010 – has found a new job. Despite intending to take a year off from television after leaving the BBC this summer, he’ll be back next week. As the new face of Cinemoi- the French specialist channel shown on Sky Channel 443 and Virgin Media channel 445.
The film buff, who has taken shares in the channel, will take up a varied role as a presenter, producer and creative director. His first interview for Cinemoi will be with Marion Cotillard, the Oscar-winning star of La Vie en Rose, which will be screened next month.

Marion Cotillard taped her appearance on the music TV show Taratata back on September 16, 2010. Finally, it will air on TV! On Tuesday, November 2 at 8.35pm on France 4 and again on Friday, November 5 at 00.40pm on France 2. Watch the Trailer on MyTaratata.com. Apparently, Marion Cotillard will be singing ‘Velvet goldmine’ with Yodélice.
Already this week however, she’ll be seen in Mon Taratata à moi where the guests pick artists to perform on the show. According to the Trailer on MyTaratata.com Marion picked Lilly Allen. Not sure if there’ll be more of Marion during the actual show this Friday than what can be seen in this trailer.
There is also a video where ‘M’ sings a message for Guillaume Canet during the taping of Taratata – Marion is part of the large group of people singing along – which was then played for Guillaume when he was guest on Vivement Dimanche (October 10). Watch it on YouTube.
To promote the theatrical release of ‘Les petits mouchoirs‘ in France on Wednesday Marion Cotillard together with Guillaume Canet and François Cluzet appeared on Le grand journal earlier tonight. Watch the videos on Canalplus.fr (La Suite 1 & 2) until I’ve added them to the video archive. Let’s hope they stayed for La boîte aux questions – we’ll find out tomorrow.
Marion Cotillard and Yodélice will be the guests of next Monday’s Le grand journal.
Tonight Marion Cotillard, Guillaume Canet as well as François Cluzet, Gilles Lellouche, Benoît Magimel and Laurent Laffitte – practically the whole Les petits mouchoirs gang – will all be present on TF1 as of 20.45 h on Enfants de la téle. Don’t forget to tune in if you live where you can watch TF1! Here’s the trailer:
Marion Cotillard’s great on the show and I just loved the old clips they showed of her. Some of when she was 8 and appeared in 2 television movies by a friend of her parents and one when she was 16 and took part in the educational ad “Tu t’es vus quand t’as bu?”. They also showed a scene from Extrême Limite which put her at unease but personally, I think she had nothing to worry about from that. Though I understand that when it’s about one’s own past one cannot be as objective.
‘Les petits mouchoirs‘ (Little White Lies) is doing the festival rounds. It’ll be shown at the 6th Festival du Film Français d’Helvetie in Bienne, Switzerland on September 18, 2010, 8pm as well as at the 54th BFI London Film Festival on October 16, 2010, 6pm and on October 18, 2010, 12pm. Thanks Giovanna and Nadine for the heads up!
Guillaume Canet and Marion Cotillard along with fellow ‘Les petits mouchoirs‘ cast members François Cluzet, Gilles Lellouche, Benoît Magimel and Laurent Laffitte will appear on Les Enfants de la télé (TF1) on Saturday, September 25, 2010 at 8.45pm when the show comes back after summer break. Other guests on the same evening include Marion’s former costars Julie Depardieu and Thierry Lhermitte as well as Kad Merad and Pierre Palmade. Source: TVMag.com
The line-up for the upcoming episodes of Taratata, which comes back from summer break on September 28, 2010 has been announced: Louis Chedid, M, Phil Collins, Ben l’Oncle Soul, Eliza Doolittle, Guillaume Grand, Maroon 5, Yodelice, Marion Cotillard, Sara Schiralli, K’naan will be taping their performances on Thursday, September 16, 2010. No air date has yet been announced but if the order of the taping sessions is anything to go by we can expect the episode with Marion on October 5, 2010 8.35pm on France 4. Go here to register to attend the taping session. Source: Actu-Loisirs.com
And a little bit of trivia about the programmes. Les Enfants de la télé shows old and rare – maybe awkward – video clips of its guests. Taratata showcases live and pre-recorded footage of current rock acts and features unique duets as well as brief interviews with the artists. The prerecorded sessions air on France 4 every Tuesday at 8.35pm together with bonus material such as footage of rehearsals. Later, it also airs on France 2 (Fridays after midnight) and France 3 as well as throughout Europe on TV5 Monde on Saturday and on TV5 Québec Canada.
The sidebar has been updated with all of these dates.
To promote the release of ‘Les petits mouchoirs‘ in France Guillaume Canet and Marion Cotillard will appear during Michel Drucker’s talk show Vivement Dimance on October 10, 2010. Thanks Louise & Gina for the heads up!
There will be an advance screening of ‘Les petits mouchoirs‘ at the Cinema Gaumont Pathé in Orléans on September 15. Guillaume Canet will be there as well as some of the cast. Seeing as this is Marion’s hometown, I’m guessing she’ll be there.
The 25th edition of FIFF (Festival International du Film Francophone de Namur, Belgium) is currently in negotiations to feature ‘Les petits mouchoirs‘ in their lineup when the festival takes place October 1-8, 2010. Additionally, they are waiting for confirmation of Guillaume Canet’s attendance and will try to get the rest of the cast, speak Marion Cotillard. Stay tuned!

I also added more pictures to the ‘Les petits mouchoirs‘ (Little White Lies) gallery. I will be attending the Mulhouse advance screening tomorrow evening and post my thoughts as well as some film-related scans soon afterwards.
At the beginning of June 2010 Marion Cotillard travelled together with Greenpeace to the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Congo: Forests on probation is an impressive 7-part video diary of Marion’s stay there and documents the plundering of the Congolese forests. I am leaving on a short holiday so I don’t have the time to upload pictures but I encourage you to watch these videos.
I will catch up on all the ‘Inception‘ promotion and other Marion news once I’m back next week. And here’s a TV alert: She will be the guest on the Late Late Night Show with Craig Ferguson on the day of ‘Inception‘s LA premiere: July 13.
The 63rd edition of the Cannes Film Festival starts tomorrow, May 12 and will run until May 23. While none of Marion’s upcoming movies are part of the line-up she is sure to be busy behind the scenes promoting them. Also the David Lynch directed Lady Dior short film is scheduled to be unveiled on Saturday, May 15. Will there be a special event at Cannes for this? I don’t know.
What is sure is that she’s the invited guest for Le Grand Journal next week on Wednesday, May
19 18 (source: Toutlatele.com Ozap.com, thanks Nadine for the heads up!). Additionally, AFP is reporting that Marion will be attending the amfAR benefit gala at the Eden Roc Hotel on May 21.
While we’re awaiting more news and especially pictures I added all the additional pictures from last year’s Cannes festival I still had sitting in some folders on my computer. Enjoy!

Marion Cotillard is on the cover of the upcoming issue of Another Magazine, out tomorrow. This is a preview of the (limited) cover as well as the interview:
Inspired by the instruction-based art of the Fluxus movement, AnOther Magazine gave cover star Marion Cotillard three instructions before her interview: bring an object you love; a photograph that makes you smile; and a piece of writing that has taught you something. The first object that tumbled from her bag was a vintage, folding Polaroid SX70, small enough to slide into her jacket pocket, a constant accompaniment across time zones and film sets. Her photographic heroes are Sarah Moon and Peter Beard. As for the photograph, she told us, “I couldn’t choose one. So I brought three. There’s a wood in Corsica where I went on holiday, a beach near Bordeaux I always go to, and a beautiful wood outside Paris, where I often stay with a friend.” The photographs – otherworldly, mysterious, peaceful havens – seemed to be a kind of quiet, talismanic antidote to the lively chaos that has surrounded Cotillard since 2007. The last object Cotillard brought along seemed to bring us full circle to her childhood quest for answers. She picked up a lovingly battered paperback, a collection of speeches, Freedom from the Known, given by the philosopher Jiddu Krishnamurti. “It’s hard to choose one book that has changed things in your life,” she smiled. “But the way he talks about fears, happiness, violence, time, life, death, us. How to find your own vision, and understand human beings, is so inspiring. As an actress, I feel like an anthropologist of human emotions. I don’t observe people because I’m an actress and I want to steal things from them. It’s the other way around – I’m an actress because I find human beings so very interesting.”
Marion Cotillard starts her ‘Nine‘ promotion in France already tonight: she’s scheduled to appear during the evening news on TF1 at 8pm. There’s no way I can record this since I’m not home but they put the video up on their website afterwards.
Sadly, Oscarcast executive producers Adam Shankman and Bill Mechanic have dropped a bombshell, telling artists nominated for Best Original Song that they won’t be invited to perform the usual big production number (source). Thus our hopes of seeing Marion Cotillard perform the Oscar nominated song ‘Taking it All‘ during the show have been shattered.
