Marion Cotillard to be nominated for “Best Actress” for her performance in “Rust and Bone”

Our friend and one of our favorite actresses, Marion Cotillard, is on her way to be nominated for “Best Actress” for her performance in “Rust and Bone.” This coming January 10th the Academy Awards will announce the nominees for the Oscars. We strongly believe that Marion will be one of them.
Oscar® winner Marion Cotillard is internationally renowned for her unbridled commitment to her art, challenging herself with each new role.
Cotillard is starring in Jacques Audiard’s “Rust and Bone,” alongside Matthias Schoenaerts, Bouli Lanners and Céline Sallette. The film was co-written by Jacques Audiard and Thomas Bidegain and adapted from the acclaimed book of short stories by Craig Davidson.
Cotillard recently wrapped production on director and co-writer James Gray’s “Untitled James Gray Project,” starring opposite Joaquin Phoenix and Jeremy Renner. The film focuses on ‘Ewa Cybulska,’ (Cotillard) and her sister, ‘Magda,’ who sail to Ellis Island in the early twentieth century, only to be separated when Magda falls ill. With nowhere to go, ‘Ewa’ quickly falls prey to ‘Bruno’ (Phoenix), a charming but wicked man who forces her to perform in his nightly burlesque show. There she encounters the dazzling ‘Orlando the Magician’ (Renner), who sweeps her off her feet and may be her only chance to reunite with her sister and escape the nightmare. Additionally, she also completed production on Guillaume Canet’s “Blood Ties” opposite Clive Owen, Billy Crudup, Mila Kunis, and Zoe Saldana. Set in 1970s Brooklyn, the film explores organized crime and the relationship between two brothers on either side of the law who face off against each other.
In 2008, Cotillard became the second French actress to ever win an Oscar®, and the first to win an acting award for a performance in the French language. The worldwide critical acclaim came for her riveting portrayal of legendary French chanteuse, Edith Piaf, in the film “La Vie En Rose.”
Cotillard’s credits include the successful French “Taxi” film series, written by Luc Besson, Yann Samuell’s “Love Me If You Dare,” and Tim Burton’s “Big Fish.” She garnered her first Cesar Award for Best Supporting Actress, for her performance in Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s “A Very Long Engagement.” Following that, she went on to star in Ridley Scott’s “A Good Year;” Michael Mann’s “Public Enemies,” and Rob Marshall’s “Nine,” the screen adaptation of the hit musical. Her performance in the film brought her Golden Globe and Critics’ Choice Award nominations, and she [...]

“Amour” amazes at Toronto International Film Fest – AWARDS

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Day One of the Toronto International Film Festival is almost in the books. Three movies down, one more to go. (And that one has Kristen Stewart in it … do you think it will draw a crowd?)
The festival officially “opens” Thursday evening with a screening of Rian Johnson’s “Looper” (which we reviewed earlier today). But here are some snapshot reactions to the rest of the films I’ve managed to see so far.
“Amour”
The Who’s lyrics resonate deeply following a screening of Michael Haneke’s “Amour” – I hope I die before I get old.
Perhaps, then, I’ll be spared the grief and heartache associated with dying – feelings and experiences that are personified with gut-wrenching precision by Haneke’s two spectacular actors, Jean-Louis Trintignant and Emmanuelle Riva, in the powerful “Amour.” She plays Anne, a doting Parisian wife and former piano teacher who’s stricken with a debilitating illness. He plays Georges, the dedicated spouse who does what he can to help his beloved endure the hardships of mortality with the same dignity she brought to life.
The unflinching “Amour” captures a loving couple’s last days with documentary-worthy realism, nailing the frustrations, struggles and small joys that often come with the caretaking of a loved one. We have yet to see anyone challenge death and win, so the ending of “Amour” is written in stone (so much so that Haneke opens his film with the revelation that Anne has died). The rest of the film allows the couple to reflect on how they lived, and to demonstrate how an illness in the family extends beyond the afflicted to affect everyone.
It’s difficult not to project your own personal experiences onto the screen while watching “Amour.” The situations presented by Haneke are far too realistic not to see ourselves (and our loved ones) as moving parts in this difficult story. During one emotional scene, as Georges fights to feed a stubborn Anne just so that she’ll live a few days longer, I started thinking of all the people I’d do that for, and the ones I hope might do it for me. That’s love.
One cannot say enough about the performances delivered by Riva and Trintignant in service of Haneke’s grim study. They’re mesmerizing in these complicated roles. Riva, particularly, embraces the fear and loathing one can feel when their mind and body begin to fail. If the awards system [...]

Analyzing Oscar’s Potential Leading and Supporting Ladies

Trying to sand down the rough slate that is the Actress categories is an intimidating task.  The past few years, the category has produced the likes of Natalie Portman in her career-topping performance in Darren Aronofsky’s “Black Swan” and Marion Cotillard’s transformation like no other in the Foreign Language film, La Vie en Rose.

Which Stars will be in Cannes? – Marion Cotillard, David Cronenberg, Robert Pattinson…

By Roger Friedman
HollywoodNews.com: We’re getting closer to the announcement of what’s going to happen in the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. We already know two things: Wes Anderson is opening the festival with “Moonrise Kingdom” and Woody Allen is not going with the newly named “To Rome with Love.” But here are some thoughts from various sources. They do say “Rust & Bone” with Marion Cotillard is in. So, too, is David Cronenberg’s “Cosmopolis” with Robert Pattinson of “Twilight” fame. High on everyone’s list is Walter Salles’s film of Jack Kerouac’s “On the Road.”
Another name mentioned is popular Cannes filmmaker Michael Haneke, with “Amour” starring Isabelle Huppert. Then there’s the matter of Terrence Malick. He has two movies in post-production, one with Ben Affleck and Jessica Chastain (among others) which was thought to have been finished before “Tree of Life” was released. Any more ideas? Let me know at roger@showbiz411.com

“The Dark Knight Rises” trailer is here!

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Batman fans flocked to the theater this weekend to see the first official footage from the anticipated “The Dark Knight Rises,” which played before Paramount’s “Mission: Impossible” sequel in select IMAX formats. A trailer for “Rises” accompanied the prologue, and bootlegged copies made their way around the Internet all weekend long.
Warner wisely counters with an official trailer for the film. We’ve posted it below.
What will you see?
- Anne Hathaway’s Catwoman essentially telling Christian Bale’s Bruce Wayne that he’s part of the 1% (and will pay the price for his playboy ways)
- A crumbling football field (and what looks like Burt Ward – aka Robin from the 1960s TV show – playing running back for Gotham’s home team)
- Bane, and his bone mask.
- Marion Cotillard, and what looks like a Catwoman mask (deception!)
- A flying Bat-Wing …
… and so much more. But look for yourself. It’s the most anticipated trailer, and we have it below:
