ASSASSIN'S CREED

MARION COTILLARD / Sofia

Academy Award winner Marion Cotillard is internationally renowned for her unbridled commitment to her art, and for challenging herself with each new role.

This fall, Cotillard stars in Robert Zemeckis' Allied, a sweeping romantic thriller in which she co-stars opposite Brad Pitt. The film tells the story of intelligence officer Max Vatan (Pitt), who in 1942 North Africa encounters French Resistance fighter Marianne Beausejour (Cotillard) on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Reunited in London, their relationship is threatened by the extreme pressures of the war. The film is based on an original story by writer Steve Knight. Paramount will release the film Nov. 23, 2016.

Next year, Cotillard will be seen in It's Only the End of the World, written and directed by Xavier Dolan and co-starring alongside Vincent Cassel, Lea Seydoux, Nathalie Baye and Gaspard Ulliel. The film premiered at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival where it won the Grand Prix and will be released by IFC Spring 2017. Following that, Cotillard will be seen in Nicole Garcia's French film From the Land of the Moon, a period romance drama based on adaptation of Milena Agus' bestselling novel set after WWII. The film spans twenty years and follows the destiny of a passionate, free-spirited woman who is in a loveless marriage and falls for another man.

Last December, Cotillard starred as Lady Macbeth in Justin Kurzel's Macbeth opposite Michael Fassbender. Macbeth is the story of a fearless warrior and inspiring leader brought low by ambition and desire. A story of all-consuming passion and ambition set in war torn 11th Century Scotland, the film is a thrilling interpretation of the dramatic realities of the times, and a reimagining of what wartime must have really been like for one of Shakespeare's most famous and compelling characters.

In 2015 Cotillard garnered an Academy Award Best Actress nomination for her performance in Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne's Two Days, One Night, as a mother who discovers that her workmates have opted for a significant pay bonus, in exchange for her dismissal. Prior to this, Cotillard was seen in Jacques Audiard's Rust and Bone, alongside Matthias Schoenaerts, Bouli Lanners and Celine Sallette. Co-written by Jacques Audiard and Thomas Bidegain, and adapted from the acclaimed book of short stories by Craig Davidson, the film follows Cotillard's character, a whale trainer in the south of France who loses both her legs in an accident and must regain her sense of self. Cotillard's lauded performance garnered wide critical acclaim including Best Actress BAFTA, Golden Globe, Cesar Award, Screen Actors Guild and Critics Choice Award nominations.

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. Of her performance, New York Times film critic Stephen Holden wrote, "Cotillard gives the most astonishing immersion of one performer into the body and soul of another I've ever encountered in film." For her role, Cotillard also received a Best Actress BAFTA, Golden Globe and César Award as well as a Screen Actors Guild and Critics Choice Award nomination. In addition, she was named Best Actress by critics' organizations worldwide, including the Los Angeles Film Critics Association and the London Film Critics Circle.

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 also shared in a SAG Award nomination for Outstanding Motion Picture Cast Performance. Additional credits include Christopher Nolan's Inception; Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris, which garnered Oscar, Golden Globe and SAG Award Best Motion Picture Nominations; Steven Soderberg's Contagion; Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises; Guillaume Canet's Little White Lies; James Grey's The Immigrant, which garnered her an Independent Spirit Best Actress nomination; as well as Guillaume Canet's Blood Ties.

Born in Paris, Cotillard studied drama at Conservatoire d'Art Dramatique in Orléans and has been named a Knight of the Order of Arts and Letters, for her contribution to the enrichment of French culture.
