Watch: Teaser Trailer for Robert Zemeckis' 'Allied' Featuring Brad Pitt
"Is this a game? A test?" Paramount has debuted the first teaser trailer for the new Robert Zemeckis film, a passionate love story set during World War II called Allied. Brad Pitt stars as an intelligence officer stationed in North Africa in 1942, who encounters a French Resistance fighter named Marianne Beausejour on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. They later reunite in London but the war still stands in the way. Marion Cotillard also stars, with Lizzy Caplan, Matthew Goode, Raffey Cassidy, Charlotte Hope and Jared Harris. This looks like it's much more about the romance than it is about war, but I'm intrigued to see what Zemeckis has been up to with Pitt and if his latest feature film is any good. Take a look below.
Here's the first teaser trailer for Robert Zemeckis' Allied, direct from Paramount's YouTube:
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 is directed by veteran filmmaker Robert Zemeckis, of many films including Back to the Future, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Contact, Cast Away, Forrest Gump, The Polar Express, Beowulf, Flight, and The Walk most recently. The screenplay is written by Oscar nominated writer Steven Knight. Paramount Pictures will release Zemeckis' Allied in theaters everywhere starting November 23rd, Thanksgiving week, this fall. How does that look?
