Upcoming Cannes Festival & Pictures From Last Year

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!

On the cover of Another Magazine etc

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.

Marion to appear on Le Grand Journal and 'Nine' Gala

Marion Cotillard together with Penéloe Cruz and Daniel Day-Lewis will appear on the French Talk Show “Le Grand Journal” on Thursday, February 18, 2010.

As reported earlier, ‘Nine‘ will be shown at the 60th Berlin International Film Festival as the Birthday Special Gala. This will be on Friday, February 19, 2010 at 9pm the Friedrichstadtpalast. Reportedly, Marion Cotllard together with Penéloe Cruz and Daniel Day-Lewis will be present. They will stay at the Hotel Adlon. edit Feb 18 Penélope Cruz & Daniel Day-Lewis have cancelled their appearance. It is as of yet unconfirmed whether Marion will still be there.

Pictures, Event & TV Alerts and more

First some additional pictures of Marion Cotillard at the Nine‘ screening in Rome.

Upcoming Events:
Today, Marion Cotillard will (probably) attend the 15th annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards ceremony as she’s nominated for Best Supporting Actress. Red carpet arrivials will begin at 4PM (PT). The Critics’ Choice Awards ceremony will begin promptly at 6PM (PT) and will be broadcast live on VH1 Television Network at 9PM ET/PT. Details at Locate TV. Then, don’t forget the Golde Globe Awards on Sunday. More on that later.

Upcoming Talk Shows:
The recently announced talk show appearance on Live with Regis and Kelly was quietly cancelled. It seems that it was impossible for Marion to go on the show since she was in Los Angeles at business meetings. Don’t forget to watch the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson this coming Monday evening. And a new talk show appearance to note down in your diaries: Marion Cotillard is scheduled to appear on the Tavis Smiley show, Tuesday, January 19 Thursday, January 21 on PBS. Check your local listings because not all PBS stations carry Tavis’ show and if they do, the times and sometimes dates vary. Many thanks Pushpak for the info.

For both the upcoming event and talk show appearances, I’d appreciate any help with getting good quality screencaptures and video clips for the site. Thank you!

This & that:
Some background information of what went on at last Saturday’s Dior Cocktail party:

“Nine” producer Marc Platt unveiled a video she shot for her “Nine” number “Take It All.” “You may all know Marion is an Oscar-winning actress, but what you may not know is that she’s a talented music video artist,” he deadpanned. The clip showed bits from the film, rehearsal footage and outtakes of Cotillard in the recording studio. “Aaagh, this is so embarrassing,” she laughed as the small crowd, including directors Jim Sheridan, David Lynch and Michael Mann, and Tobey and Jennifer Maguire, broke into applause. Although tout Hollywood seems to want to work with her, Cotillard says she’s next turning her attention to a personal documentary on conserving the forestlands, which she was inspired to do after some friends raised her awareness about deforestation.

Then the upcoming rumoured Marion project ‘Second Coming‘ was recently mentioned by The Arizona Republic in an article about women’s rising power in Hollywood:

But if you do, and your stock is rising, it can happen. Bullock is one example. Marion Cotillard, an Oscar winner currently starring in “Nine,” is another. She’s a producer for the upcoming “The Second Coming.”

“What’s interesting is that time has changed, and now you, as an actor, can find a good story by yourself and make it happen,” Cotillard said, “like Charlize Theron with ‘Monster.’ . . . There are many ways to find roles if it doesn’t come to you from a director or producer. More and more actors are producing their movies. Maybe it’s because of that – they aren’t happy enough with the offers they get, or they want to do something else that directors will not think that they’re able to do.”

Many thanks Aurore for the following heads-up. Hugh Grant visited Le Grand Journal to promote his new movie ‘Did You Hear About the Morgans?‘ in France. During the comedy re-cap of recent news and gossip called Le Petit Journal there was a funny skit featuring Marion Cotillard. Did you think it funny how so many famous Hollywood men posed with Marion for photographs at the recent Dior Cocktail Party in her honour? Well, that’s what they thought as well, and they found a way for everyday citizens (and Hugh Grant) to do the same.

Live with Regis and Kelly

Marion Cotillard will be a guest on Live with Regis and Kelly on Friday, January 8, 2010, 9am. Visit Locate TV to get exact listings.

Tomorrow, Marion will be presented with the Desert Palm Achievement Actress Award by ‘Nine‘ director Rob Marshall at the Black Tie Awards Gala at the beginning of the 21st Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival – as previously announced. Apparently, the event will be covered by Entertainment Tonight’s Mary Hart as of 6pm PT.

In both cases I appreciate any help with video clips and good quality screencaptures. Thank you!

Thanks Nadine for the heads up: Marion will make a 3rd appearance on the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on January 18, 2009 – the day after the Golden Globes. I know I’m looking forward to this, should be entertaining!
