While Robert Zemeckis‘ “Allied” had an unusual introduction to the international marketplace — thanks to an alleged cheating scandal that came out of the divorce proceedings between Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie — we finally have a clear idea of what the film is about.
A full trailer for the drama dropped Wednesday, and it’s stunning.
WWII serves as backdrop for an unlikely love story between Pitt and Marion Cotillard, two government operatives who take down some Nazis before settling in a turbulent Britain to get married and raise a family.
As the war churns on, however, their idyllic home is torn when a ranking commander (“Mad Men’s” Jared Harris) informs Pitt that Cotillard may be a German spy. He has 72 hours to prove his beloved’s innocence, or kill her personally to prove his allegiance to the cause.
In real-life, Pitt’s wife of two years filed for divorce last month after more than a decade and six children together. Jolie cited “irreconcilable differences” in court documents, adding that their date of separation was Sept. 15.
