Paramount Pictures has released an action-packed new trailer for their film “Allied” starring Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard as an intelligence officer and a French resistance fighter who fall in love while fighting the Nazis during World War II. But there may be more to the story: is Cotillard really an ally or a German spy? Watch it above.
“Allied” opens November 23 and is directed by Robert Zemeckis, who won the Best Director Oscar for “Forrest Gump” (1994) and also made “Back to the Future,” “Who Framed Roger Rabbit?,” “Cast Away,” “Flight” and more. Zemeckis produces the film along with Oscar champs Steve Starkey (“Forrest Gump”) and Graham King (“The Departed,” 2006). And the screenplay is by Steven Knight, who earned an Oscar bid for his original script for “Dirty Pretty Things” (2002).
Pitt has one Oscar win out of six nominations: As a producer of Best Picture champ “12 Years a Slave” (2013). He also has noms for producing “Moneyball” (2011) and “The Big Short” (2015), and for acting in “12 Monkeys” (1995), “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” (2008) and “Moneyball,” but has yet to prevail for his work on-screen.
Cotillard, meanwhile, won Best Actress on her first try for her breakthrough performance as singer Edith Piaf in the French-language biopic “La Vie en Rose” (2008). She then earned another nomination for her leading role in another foreign-language film, “Two Days, One Night” (2014).
