If you prefer to keep your Brad Pitt news confined to the screen, here’s one for you: a new trailer for “Allied,” Robert Zemeckis’ World War II thriller co-starring Marion Cotillard. Said to be based on a true story, it stars the two as a pair of assassins who fall in love while plotting to assassinate a Nazi official in 1942. Watch the newly released trailer below.
“Being good at this kind of work is not very beautiful,” Cotillard laments in the opening moments, which give way to touches of romance and shootouts over the next 60 seconds. Lizzy Caplan, Matthew Goode, Jared Harris and Camille Cottin all co-star; Steven Knight (“Eastern Promises,” “Locke,” “Peaky Blinders”) wrote the screenplay.
The film is one of two upcoming WWII dramas starring Pitt, the other being David Michôd’s “War Machine.” Paramount Pictures is set to release “Allied” on November 23.
