A few weeks ago we got the teaser for Allied, Robert Zemeckis’s new WWII spy thriller starring Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard. Then, we got that whole business about #Brangelexit and all the garbage journalists in the world who wanted to throw Cotillard in the middle of a love triangle similar to the events surrounding Mr. and Mrs. Smith over a decade ago.
Well, now we have the first full trailer for Allied, and hopefully this promising new trailer, full of spy action and twists and turns, will be enough to remind everyone this looks like a pretty terrific spy thriller, and not tabloid fodder.
Check it out:
In 1942, an intelligence officer in North Africa encounters a female French Resistance fighter on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. When they reunite in London, their relationship is tested by the pressures of war.
I’m a sucker for WWII films, especially spy films. It’s been a while since we had a classic throwback spy thriller of this ilk. And, yes, I’m a sucker for Robert Zemeckis despite his painfully obvious needle drops and hamfisted direction at times.
Allied will hit theaters November 23.
