Allied tells the story of intelligence officer Max Vatan (Brad Pitt, right), who, in 1942 North Africa, encounters French Resistance fighter Marianne Beausejour (Marion Cotillard) on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Later, reunited in London, their relationship is threatened by the extreme pressures of the war.
Directed by Robert Zemeckis (The Walk, Back To The Future Trilogy), from a script by Steven Knight (Pawn Sacrifice, Peaky Blinders), the cast also includes Lizzy Caplan, Matthew Goode, Raffey Cassidy, Charlotte Hope and Jared Harris, and at one minute long, it gives enough of a flavour of the movie without giving away too much, like so many trailers these days. Based on what I’ve seen, it looks pretty good, and Zemeckis rarely puts a foot wrong., so I’ll certainly check this out.
Allied is released in the UK on November 25th.
