Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard Fall in Love in New 'Allied' Trailer (But Not in Real Life)
A new promo for Pitt and Cotillard's World War II spy thriller was released one day after Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from the star.


Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard are falling in love (and shooting Nazis) in the new trailer for the World War II action drama, Allied.

The trailer dropped the same day news broke that Angelina Jolie had filed for divorce from the Oscar-winner in what could be considered either very poor or really smart timing -- your call!

Allied tells the story of American spy Max Vatan (Pitt), who sparks a romantic relationship with French Resistance Marianne Beausejour (Cotillard) during a dangerous mission to kill a high-ranking Nazi official.

The film, which looks like a somewhat more serious version of Pitt's earlier WW2 film Inglourious Basterds crossed with Mr. & Mrs. Smith, follows the pair as they get married as part of their cover story, and then begin to fall in love as the mission progresses.

Following the shocking divorce news, a report alleged that Pitt and Cotillard had struck up a real-life relationship while filming Allied earlier this year. However, a source tells ET that the rumors of an on-set affair are "not true."

Pitt, who was previously married to Friends star Jennifer Aniston from 2000 to 2005, found love with Jolie while the two were filming their action comedy Mr. & Mrs. Smith in 2004. Pitt and Jolie began dating after his divorce and the two share six children. They couple only officially tied the knot in August 2014.
