Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard. Is there anything more that needs to be said to get someone excited for Robert Zemeckis’ “Allied”? The director may not have gotten the hit he had hoped for last year with “The Walk,” but the new 60-second teaser for his new spy thriller hints that he might have a huge hit on his hands.
Pitt, returning to WWII once again after the success of David Ayer’s “Fury,” stars as Max Vatan, a British intelligence officer who encounters French Resistance fighter Marianne Beausejour (Cotillard) during a mission in Casablanca that forces them into a pretend marriage so their cover isn’t blown. The pair is reunited later in London and fall in love, though the horrors of war threaten to destroy their relationship.
The new teaser sets up a game of espionage between our two leads, and it looks like sparks will fly. “Allied” opens in theaters November 23.
