By this time in the year, swallowed by the deluge of festival season, and with December blockbusters rolling out their campaigns, it can be easy to forget there is still more to come. One more is set to drop featuring Hollywood’s biggest power couple: Angelina Jolie Pitt and Brad Pitt. And a new look at their new movie, “By The Sea,” has arrived.
Jolie Pitt penned, directed, and stars in the movie alongside Brad, with the film telling an arty, sad, beautiful story about a married couple who basically wander about in 1970s France being depressed and consumed by their problems. It doesn’t promise to be a fun movie necessarily, though it is the kind of drama that major studios almost never release, and this new featurette highlights the creative freedom the Pitts had in making their picture.
“By The Sea” opens on November 13th, but will hit AFI Festival first for its World Premiere. And oh, the version of “Gimme Shelter” you’ll hear in the promo is by Merry Clayton, who sang backup on The Rolling Stones original.
