Allied, directed by Robert Zemeckis, is about an American spy and assassin (Brad Pitt) who goes on a mission to Morocco in 1942 and meets a French spy and assassin (Marion Cotillard). They fall in love, get married, have a baby and of course, trouble ensues thanks to the fucking Nazis! This is the plot according to IMDB:
The story of intelligence officer Max Vatan (Brad Pitt), who in 1942 North Africa encounters French Resistance fighter Marianne Beausejour (Marion Cotillard) on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Reunited in London, their relationship is threatened by the extreme pressures of the war.
It comes out in November, just in time OSCUH season, and also stars Lizzy Caplan, Matthew Goode and Jared Harris. The teaser trailer was released today and it’s giving me “remake of Mr. & Mrs. Smith using the costumes and sets from Inglourious Basterds” vibes. Brad’s character and Marion’s character obviously get really, really close, so close that they share make-up. I mean, Brad Pitt’s mug is all kinds of Max Factor fresh in this trailer:
I really shouldn’t call it a reboot or remake of “Mr. & Mrs. Smith” until Brad Pitt drops St. Angie Jolie for Marion Cotillard, and years later St. Angie Jolie says in an interview with Vogue, “What Marion did was tres pas cool*.”
