Spies! Spies! Spies! Yeah.
Who doesn’t love a good spy movie?! That’s what I’d love to know. It would appear director Robert Zemeckis – who is typically known for his grandiose special effects driven pictures – is taking things down a notch or two, focusing on a taut thrilling narrative with ALLIED. Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard star as two star crossed lovers pulled in every direction because of war. It also stars Lizzy Caplan and Matthew Goode.
Take a look at the trailer and start swoonin’!
I mean, can you feel the heat radiating off of these two?! Their chemistry is insane.
Here’s the official synopsis:
“ALLIED” is the story of intelligence officer Max Vatan (Pitt), who in 1942 North Africa encounters French Resistance fighter Marianne Beausejour (Cotillard) on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Reunited in London, their relationship is threatened by the extreme pressures of the war.
ALLIED opens in theaters on November 23.
