Trailer for Allied Starring Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard

“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.

Directed by Robert Zemeckis from a screenplay by Steven Knight, Allied arrives in US theaters November 23, 2016.  Here’s a quote from writer Steven Knight about the motivation behind penning this screenplay courtesy of Collider.

“This is a very odd story. I was in Texas working as a dishwasher and doing all sorts of weird things. I was going out with an English girl at the time and her auntie lived in Texas, and she got talking about her brother who had been in the S.O.E., the British Secret Service if you like, and she told me this story that just stayed with me. I’ve always known it would be a film, and now it’s gonna be the ultimate.”
