Right now, the entertainment world is buzzing with the news of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s divorce. While any disintegration of a family with children involved is indeed tragic, what’s made it especially dicey are the rumours that Pitt was having an affair with Marion Cotillard. Who happens to be his co-star in their latest film “Allied”. The latest trailer for the Robert Zemeckis romance-thriller has just dropped, and it’s not exactly the kind of attention the film or its stars should have. Because judging it on its own merits — as much as can be judged from this footage — it looks pretty impressive. The stars have chemistry, the period setting is gorgeously realised, and Zemeckis appears to be back on form. Hopefully the film will not be coloured by any controversy upon its release.
Here’s the official synopsis: “Allied is 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.”
“Allied” is written by Steven Knight. It premieres 23rd November.
