The film is based on a true story about two assassins who fall in love during a mission to kill a German official. Set in 1940s, North African intelligence officer, Max Vatan (Brad Pitt), meets French Resistance fighter, Marianne Beausejour (Marion Cotillard), on a mission in the land of the enemy. They unite in London, get married and have a child. But things come to a shocking juncture when Max Vatan’s wife is doubted to be a German spy and if proved, he is ordered to kill her with his own hands, failing to do which he is threatened to be hanged.
Directed by Academy Award winner, Robert Zemeckis, ‘Allied’ is set for a November release.
Laced with intense steamy scenes between Brad and Marion, the film’s trailer also runs high on World War II era action, drama and suspense.
