The “American dream” looked a whole lot different in 1920s Ellis Island.
The new trailer of James Gray’s “The Immigrant” follows Oscar winner Marion Cotillard, playing a Polish nurse who thinks she’s being saved by Joaquin Phoenix’s character, only to find herself sold into prostitution. Jeremy Renner plays a street magician who falls for her and tries to set her free.
The period piece premiered to rave reviews at last year’s Cannes Film Festival. Variety’s Peter Debruge wrote that the romantic tale “cuts to the very soul of the American experience.”
“The Immigrant” hits theaters on May 16.

For some reason, James Gray‘s The Immigrant didn’t get released last fall as an awards contender. Like Snowpiercer, The Immigrant was far better than pretty much everything else Harvey Weinstein decided to release in 2013. Both movies sat on the shelf for a little bit, but thankfully for not too long. Snowpiercer and The Immigrant will have limited releases this summer, and it’s highly recommended to seek out the theaters that will show Gray and Bong Joon-ho‘s films. Both movies were made for the big screen. Bong Joon-ho’s exceptional control over tension makes for a true theatrical experience, while Gray’s new movie features gorgeous cinematography and another superb performance from Joaquin Phoenix that shouldn’t be first seen on your television set. Following up his best film, Two Lovers, Gray tells the story of an immigrant, played by Marion Cottillard, hoping to make it in America with her sister. It »

After a well-received premiere at the Cannes Film Festival almost a year ago, James Gray’s period drama The Immigrant is finally preparing to hit screens stateside. There was a time where it was presumed that The Weinstein Company would be relegating The Immigrant to a VOD release via its Radius-twc brand, but the company did an about face earlier this spring, opting instead to send the film into a limited theatrical run. Now, The Immigrant, which stars Marion Cotillard, Jeremy Renner and Joaquin Phoenix, has received a U.S. trailer and accompanying poster, along with a slew of images.
The trailer offers a tantalizing look into the stunningly beautiful world of 1921 New York, as immaculately lensed by Darius Khondji. It’s clear that The Immigrant is going to be a delicious visual treat for cinephiles, but the story is also highly promising.

Watch the beautiful new trailer for The Immigrant.
In James Gray’s The Immigrant, Ewa Cybulski (Marion Cotillard) and her sister sail to New York from their native Poland in search of a new start and the American dream. When they reach Ellis Island, doctors discover that Magda (Angela Sarafyan) is ill, and the two women are separated. Ewa is released onto the mean streets of Manhattan while her sister is quarantined.
Alone, with nowhere to turn and desperate to reunite with Magda, Ewa quickly falls prey to Bruno (Joaquin Phoenix), a charming but wicked man who takes her in and forces her into prostitution. The arrival of Orlando (Jeremy Renner) – a dashing stage magician who is also Bruno’s cousin – restores her self-belief and hopes for a brighter future, becoming her only chance to escape the nightmare in which she finds herself.

The film, directed by James Gray, was met with glowing reviews at the 2013 Cannes festival. It follows the story of Cotillard’s Ewa, who struggles to find the American dream while working for a pimp (Joaquin Phoenix) as a magician (Jeremy Renner) tries to help set her free.

After receiving rave reviews at last year's Cannes festival, James Gray's The Immigrant is finally being released Stateside May 16. Here's a new theatrical trailer for the flick, which stars Marion Cotillard as a Polish immigrant forced into prostitution by a slimy pimp (Joaquin Phoenix), and Jeremy Renner as a magician who tries to save her. There are also some new promotional stills and a freshly photoshopped poster, which is similar to the French poster apart from the absence of Cotillard's fancy headband. Because as we all know, there is nothing more un-American than a fancy headband. »

Movies, much like the weather, used to operate on strictly seasonal patterns. It used to be that you would have a separate season for prestige pushes and another season for big ticket tent-poles, with crap shoots scheduled in the off seasons in between. But as the market has gotten more and more crowded, studios have became bolder and bolder with scheduling their ringers for seasons where they normally wouldn't "belong". This counter-programming strategy seems to work to a certain extent, with Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel being an excellent example. The film was released this past March, and managed to clean up. With a trailer that invokes cinema classics before it, and a musical refrain that already sounds like it's ready to be conducted by William Ross, James Gray's The Immigrant looks like it's ready to make a name for itself just as the summer box office »

After her sister becomes ill, Ewa must strike out on her own, when she meets Bruno (Joaquin Phoenix) who forces her into prostitution. Jeremy Renner co-stars as Orlando, a magician and Bruno's cousin who gives her hope for a promising future in this drama, written and directed by James Gray (We Own the Night), which hits theaters May 16.

We got our first look at the Cannes 2014 slate this morning, but there are still a few Cannes 2013 films making their way to theaters. One is James Gray‘s The Immigrant, starring Marion Cotillard, Joaquin Phoenix, and Jeremy Renner. Cotillard stars as Ewa, a Polish woman who emigrates to New York in 1920 with her […]

James Gray has operated in classic Hollywood territory before, both with his Coppola-esque crime dramas "The Yards" and "We Own the Night" and his excellent 2008 film "Two Lovers," which wouldn't seem out of place next to the character-driven New Hollywood likes of "Five Easy Pieces" or "Scarecrow." Read More: 'The Immigrant' Director James Gray to his Cannes Critics: 'They Can Go Fuck Themselves' But Gray's much-awaited new film "The Immigrant" looks like a throwback to the great melodramas of the past, with comparisons from the film's supporters ranging from Roberto Rossellini's Ingrid Bergman collaborations to Elia Kazan. The film stars Marion Cotillard as a Polish immigrant who starts working as a prostitute for Joaquin Phoenix as a way to bring her quarantined sister into the country. The stirring new trailer showcases Darius Khondji's stunning photography, not to mention impressive-looking work from Cotillard, Phoenix and Jeremy Renner as Phoenix's magician cousin. »

Joaquin Phoenix is a charming but slimy sex trafficker preying on desperate foreigner Marion Cotillard in 1920s New York City in a new trailer for James Gray's “The Immigrant.” The period drama tells the story of a Polish woman (Cotillard) trying to make it in America after being separated from her sister when they arrive at Ellis Island. Phoenix's character promises her shelter in exchange for sex with strangers, but his magician cousin, played by Jeremy Renner, may come to the rescue when he falls for the titular character.

Despite a filmography consisting of only four features to date, filmmaker James Gray has garnered a number of fans in the film community for movies such as We Own the Night and Two Lovers. With a collaboration on the screenplay of Blood Ties marking Gray’s first new film credit since 2008, many were curious to see his next directorial feature. Titled The Immigrant, Gray co-wrote the screenplay with Ric Menello, directing a cast that includes frequent collaborator Joaquin Phoenix, along with Marion Cotillard, Jicky Schnee, and Jeremy Renner. A new trailer for the film has now been released, and can be seen below. Sound on Sight was able to see the film at Nyff 2013, and our review can be read here.

With the 2014 Cannes Film Festival coming up, it's been nearly a year since The Immigrant debuted at last year's French film festival, and now the film is poised for release in limited theaters next month. The film follows two sisters (Marion Cotillard and Angela Sarafyan) in 1921 who head to America in search of a new life, but their immigration turns into a nightmare when one is quarantined for a lung disease, and the other is forced into prostitution in order to try and get her out, all while dealing with a dastardly man named Bruno (Joaquin Phoenix) who may have ruined her chance at a happy ending with his cousin Emil (Jeremy Renner). The movie hasn't garnered much buzz, but it looks like it could be worth checking out. Here's the first trailer for James Gray's The Immigrant, originally from Yahoo: In 1921 Ewa Cybulski (Marion Cotillard) and her sister »

Look, we know not all Photoshop artists were created equally, and perhaps poster art is not the domain for real art these days (folks like Neil Kellerhouse and Drafthouse artisans aside), but this recent poster for James Gray's upcoming indie drama "The Immigrant" is… let’s say politely, something else. Sure, even the original French poster had the three stars Marion Cotillard, Joaquin Phoenix and Jeremy Renner photoshopped together like they were members of the European 'Avengers,' but this North American poster for the film butchers Cotillard's beautiful face. Worse, Harvey Weinstein, or someone at TWC decided her headband was too French so it had to be photoshopped out, making her look even weirder (see the side by side comparison here). Hey, we get it. Photoshop poster art is often not very good, see Professor X blowing flame farts out of his wheelchair in the last X-Men poster for random example, »

The Weinstein Company has released a new trailer for James Gray's period drama The Immigrant. The story centers on a woman (Marion Cotillard) immigrating to New York City in the 1920s who, when her sister is rejected and sent back to Poland, finds herself lured into the world of prostitution in the hopes of eventually being reunited with her kin. This trailer focuses on the striking cinematography and throws out several ecstatic blurbs from critics. I wish I had seen the movie they saw. When I caught the film at the New York Film Festival last year, I saw a misguided effort that took a softball approach to a harsh narrative. Hit the jump to check out The Immigrant trailer. The film also stars Joaquin Phoenix and Jeremy Renner. Via Yahoo! Movies. Here's the official synopsis for The Immigrant: 1920. In search of a new start and the American dream, »

There were few surprises to be had at this morning’s announcement of the Competition, Un Certain Regard and Special Screenings sections for the 2014 Cannes Film Festival — perhaps barring Fremaux’s proud, misleading assurance that a whopping 15 female directors were included in the lineup, which is evidently French for eight. Familiar faces returning to the Croisette include Assayas, Cronenberg, Zvyaginstev, Bilge Ceylan, Hazanavicius, Egoyan, Loach, Leigh and the Dardennes, whose Two Days, One Night may prove to be Marion Cotillard’s successful shot at the Best Actress title, after snubs for Rust and Bone and The Immigrant. The two American titles in Competition […] »

The Immigrant made its debut at Cannes last year and has reunited director James Gray with Joaquin Phoenix for the fourth time, after they previously worked together on We Own The Night, Two Lovers and The Yards.
We already previously heard that Gray wrote this role specifically for Cotillard, who here plays Ewa Cybulski, a woman who sails to New York with her sister from their native Poland in search of a new start. However, when they reach Ellis Island, the doctors discover that Magda is ill, and they are separated.
Out on her own, Ewa quickly falls prey to Bruno (Phoenix), a charming but wicked man who takes her in and forces her into prostitution. The arrival of Orlando (Jeremy Renner) – a dashing stage magician - restores her self-belief and hopes for a brighter future, becoming her only chance to escape the nightmare in which she finds herself.
