Trailer for Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard’s romance Allied released – on the same day Angelina Jolie filed for divorce

Well, this is awkward...


Paramount Pictures has released a new trailer for Robert Zemeckis’s upcoming Second World War spy romance Allied, starring Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard.


Yep, that’s right, on exactly the same day that the news was full of reports of Pitt’s wife Angelina Jolie filing for divorce, amid rumours that an affair with Cotillard is behind the split – something the French actress vehemently denies – this landed…

The film concerns an American intelligence officer (Pitt) who encounters a French resistance fighter (Cotillard) in North Africa in 1942 and falls in love with her.

Reaction on Twitter to the probably coincidental timing (trailer release dates are usually planned months in advance) has been mostly amused.

Although whether Cotillard or the couple formerly known as Brangelina can see the funny side is another matter…


Allied will be in UK cinemas from 25th November
