There's an old Hollywood adage that says you should never co-star with animals because they will just cut the legs out from under you. Well, Marion Cotillard apparently didn't get that message, which is why we're now able to offer up to you the new trailer for her critically acclaimed film "Rust and Bone."
And trust us: It's a real whale of a tale.
Here's the story: Cotillard plays a whale trainer at a place not entirely unlike Sea World. One day she meets a dude (Matthias Schoenaerts) who spends his time bum fighting in backyards. Hey, we've all been there. They seem to be as different as humanly possible, but when one of the whales decides to go rogue, the two form an unexpected relationship.
One of the breakout films at this year's Cannes Film Festival, "Rust and Bone" is already generating serious Oscar heat for Cotillard, who previously won an Academy Award for her role in "La vie en rose." So will history repeat itself? Check out the atmospheric new trailer for "Rust and Bone," courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, and see for yourself:
