“Allied” – Movie Trailer

Brad Pitt has another new movie coming out near the end of November. Allied stars Pitt and Marion Cotillard during World War II.

From IMDB:

The story of intelligence officer Max Vatan (Brad Pitt), who in 1942 North Africa encounters French Resistance fighter Marianne Beausejour (Marion Cotillard) on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Reunited in London, their relationship is threatened by the extreme pressures of the war.

From the looks of the trailer, their relationship starts as a cover or deception, but becomes, as stories of this type always do in Hollywood, muddy and dangerous.

I’m going to need to see more on this film before I decide what I really think of it. Brad Pitt in World War II seems to now be becoming a thing, and, despite the film being directed by Robert Zemekis, I can’t help but think that this will wind up as simply another “make-Brad-Pitt-a-serious-Oscar-contender” film, with more style than substance.

But I could be wrong. It happens.

Time will tell.
