Brad Pitt is having a bad day, you guys. His beloved wife Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce, as well as for custody of their six children. What makes this story controversial is that, eleven years after Pitt left wife Jennifer Aniston for co-star Jolie, it appears that history has repeated itself, as Pitt has been supposedly having an affair with actress Marion Cotillard. I’m not one for spreading gossip, and I have always wanted to make sure this site avoids becoming a tabloid rag, but this information is pertinent to this article, as Pitt and Cotillard carried on this affair while filming Robert Zemeckis’ Allied, which has a new trailer today.
Allied follows two World War II-era spies in North Africa, American intelligence officer Max Vatan (Pitt) and French Resistance Fighter Marianne Beausejour (Cotillard), who fall in love on a dangerous mission behind enemy lines and watch as their relationship is threatened by the pressures of war.
Regardless of any media drama, the film continuously proves itself as an interesting and compelling war romance. It’s been a long time since Zemeckis made a great film, but I’m interested to see if he can succeed with this tense and romantic period piece. The film also stars Lizzy Caplan, Matthew Goode, and Jared Harris, and will be released November 23rd.
