Marion started her appearances in the South of France on May 11, by attending the Dior Cruise 2016 show where she wore a Dior piece and posed next to designer Raf Simmons.
Next up, in Cannes, Marion Cotillard attended the Chopard Trophy gala on May 15. The chosen look was by Balmain, an edgy dress with bright colours and a black skirt. Marion designed jewlery for Chopard this year. She wore it all through the festival. The bracelet she wore at the premiere of The Little Prince was one of the designs. You can read more about it here. The next day, Marion attended The French Party wearing a minimal black dress by Dior.
The AmfAR Gala came next on May 21st and we saw Marion in a bright green dress by Gaultier. Marion and Michael Fassbender did a speech at the event and seemed to have a great amount of fun together. Be sure to check those photos in the gallery. If anyone has video footage of this event please send it to me! I will give you full credit for it.
May 22 marked the premiere of The Little Prince, followed by a Dior private dinner. Marion wore Dior for both events.
Macbeth‘s day was May 24 and Marion attended the photocall, press conference and premiere later that night. She wore a colourful design by Ulyana Sergeenko to the first two events during the day and later changed into a sparkly short dress by Dior. She was accompanied on the red carpet by director Justin Kurzel and co-star Michael Fassbender.
I have added hundreds of high quality photos of all these events to the gallery so be sure to check them out!

Shooting for Xavier Dolan’s next feature film, Juste La Fin Du Monde (It’s Only The End of the World) started straight after the Cannes Film Festival ended at the end of May, and work on the film has been underway in Canada since. Marion will play Catherine in the film, against French renowned actors Vincent Cassel, Léa Seydoux and Gaspard Ulliel.
The first still from the film featuring Marion has just been released and I’ve added it to the site. I’m personally really excited about this project as Xavier Dolan is one of my favourite directors working today. I’ll add news of the film as soon as they’re released.

Variety reports that Marion Cotillard is in talks to join Robert Zemeckis’ next projet, a spy thriller set during the Second World War. The plot of the film is being kept under wraps but sources say Marion and Brad would most likely play two assassins who are married. When Marion’s character is revealed to be a supporter of the Third Reich, she becomes her husband’s next target.
Robert Zemeckis is aboard to direct the period film, which will reportedly find Pitt and Cotillard as assassins who fall in love while working a mission to take out a German official. They end up getting hitched, but a spanner is thrown in their happiness when Pitt learns that his missus is actually a double agent for the Nazis and his next job will be to kill her.
The film would shoot early next year, once Marion wraps work on Assassin’s Creed.
If this project gets signed, Marion will have four movies lined up shooting into 2016. Seems like it’ll be a busy year!
The trailer for Macbeth has finally been released! The film opened last month in Cannes to good reviews, including very good ones about Marion’s performance. This is exciting and the film looks beautiful from these images. Take a look:
I’m also working on gather everything I can from Cannes and posting it on the website to write a big post on Marion’s appearance in the festival this year. Still a lot to come.
It had been announced back in February that Marion was to appear in an episode of a new sketch show in Canal Plus. Tonight her episode finally aired and it’s ridiculously funny! Unfortunately it’s all in French and there are no subtitles. Hopefully a version with those will appear soon but I couldn’t wait to share this with you guys so I captured it from my computer until a better version comes along. Basically Marion is wanting to record her first rap album and casting a rapper. It’s hilarious. Get ready to hear Marion rap!
