Shockingly, the Brad Pitt, Marion Cotillard led war drama has been on the back burner the last weeks. Overshadowed by much bigger names, Allied is out in theaters this weekend, giving audiences a great counter-programming to the more family centric releases.
The film is directed by Robert Zemeckis, who has been on a bit of cold streak the last few years compared to his early work, and Allied looks like a great change of pace for the acclaimed director. With two huge talents like Pitt and Cotillard leading the film, there’s a strong chance Allied is the type of movie Zemeckis needs right now. And from everything I’ve heard, it’s a thriller that isn’t just worth checking out, but leaves you guessing until the very end.
I’ve enjoyed all the footage to this point. I’m a complete sucker for war films, especially WWII, so it’s safe to say that I’m pumped to see what Zemeckis has cooked up this time. I have yet to see his latest The Walk, mainly due to it not really interesting me, but like I said, Allied is right up my alley and I hope it’s as enjoyable and thrilling as I think it can be.
Take a look at the new set of clips to be released, as well as the latest TV spot promos. Are you looking forward to Allied? Have you liked the footage? Why or why not? Robert Zemeckis’ Allied was released today and stars Brad Pitt, Marion Cotillard, Lizzy Caplan, and Mtthew Goode.
