I suppose I knew that Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard were working with Oscar-winning director Robert Zemeckis – I just didn’t exactly realize in what capacity.
But now I do.
The celebrated thesps are starring in Zemeckis’ Allied, the story of a handsome intelligence officer who in 1942 meets and begins a love affair with a beautiful French Resistance fighter. Alas, their secrets and the ongoing second world war conspire to keep them on edge and, ultimately, team ’em asunder.
Here is the first teaser for the film – which features a quick bit of a scene at the halfway mark that will make you seriously wonder why Angelina Jolie didn’t think to sign up for this instead of reuniting with Pitt in By the Sea:
Allied, co-starring Lizzy Caplan and Matthew Goode, among others, is scheduled to be released on Nov. 23.
