Brad Pitt’s latest movie has some critics already talking about a possible Oscar nomination next year. And what’s more, it looks like the Hollywood actor’s co-star Marion Cotillard might be in the running as well as she and Brad Pitt are co-starring in a new World War II-period film called “Allied,” which might leave Angelina Jolie not only jealous, but shut out of any Oscar or award considerations in the coming months.
Both Brad Pitt and Marion Cottilard were photographed on several occasions together. And while many tabloid sites speculated on a possible drama, the two friends and co-stars were actually working together and filming scenes for ‘Allied.’ And now that the official teaser trailer is available for the war period film, many critics are already considering it an early runner for next year’s awards season.
In the film, Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard play American and French spies that work together for the most part, although there’s a twist at the end. Of course, both fans and critics alike are going to compare this film to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s last box office film together, ‘By The Sea.’ Unfortunately for the married couple, the movie bombed at the box office with reviews so bad that it’s considered one of the worst movies of both Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s careers.
Of course, if Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard not only receive praise but recognition for their work in ‘Allied,’ there’s a good chance that it might leave Angelina Jolie completely envious if not regretful that she hasn’t had a well-received film in years. Angelina Jolie’s last few movies, which include ‘By The Sea,’ ‘Maleficent’ and ‘The Tourist,’ were both panned and highly mocked by critics for its lackluster performances.
Angelina Jolie wants to be regarded as a successful A-list actress and director in the entertainment industry, but unfortunately she hasn’t had a hit since her 2005 film, ‘Mr. & Mrs. Smith,’ which of course led to the beginning of her Brad Pitt romance and his Jennifer Aniston divorce.
With Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard’s media and promotional blitz for their film ‘Allied’ scheduled for the next few months, there’s no doubt that Angelina Jolie will feel like she’s once again being left in the shadows by her more successful husband.
