ALLIED

About The Production
For secret World War II operatives Max Vatan (Brad Pitt) and Marianne Beausejour (Marion Cotillard), the key to survival is never being truly known by anyone. They are experts in deception, play-acting, second-guessing and assassination. When they accidentally fall for each other in the middle of an extraordinarily risky mission, their one hope is to leave all the double-dealing behind - but instead, suspicion and danger become the core of their wartime marriage as husband-and-wife are pitted against each other in an escalating, potentially lethal test of loyalty, identity and love...with global consequences.

From Oscar winner Robert Zemeckis, the innovative director behind Forrest Gump, Cast Away and Flight, comes Allied, at once a mesmerizing espionage thriller, sweeping war drama and passionate romance between two assassins who may be fated soulmates or deadly enemies - or both. In a sumptuous, visually evocative production that roams from Casablanca to London's Blitz days to German-occupied France, Zemeckis creates the kind of grand tale that flourished in Golden Hollywood - full of mystery, thrills and romantic heat - yet told with all the richly immersive power of 21st Century cinema.

The film unites Best Actor Oscar nominee Brad Pitt (Moneyball, The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button, Twelve Monkeys) and Best Actress Oscar winner Marion Cotillard (La Vie En Rose, Two Days, One Night, The Dark Knight Rises) as the two crafty spies caught between their feverish feelings for one another and an act of duplicity that could detonate everything they care about.

The year is 1942, and 26 countries have just aligned into the Allied Forces to fight the Nazi threat overrunning Europe. On an urgent assignment for the British Special Operations Executive (SOE), Canadian airman Max Vatan parachutes into occupied Casablanca to take out Germany's ambassador. There, he encounters ravishing French resistance fighter Marianne - chosen to pose as his spouse. But their growing flame for each other soon becomes more than an act, even as they face devastating odds. Daring to reunite in London, their love only deepens and they start a family. But then comes the day Max is informed his idyllic new family life may be a monumental deception - sparking a desperate chase after the truth through a potentially lethal maze of borders and alliances both international and personal.

Paramount Pictures and GK Films present Allied, a film by Robert Zemeckis from an original script by Steven Knight (Dirty Pretty Things, Eastern Promises, Locke). The producers are Oscar winner Graham King (The Departed, Argo), Zemeckis and Steve Starkey (Forrest Gump, Castaway, Flight,), with Denis O'Sullivan (The 5th Wave, The Young Victoria), Jack Rapke (Flight, Castaway, Beowulf), Jackie Levine (The Walk), Patrick McCormick (Black Mass) and Steven Knight serving as executive producers.

The accomplished behind-the-scenes team who viscerally recreate Allied's distinctive mix of gritty and glamorous WWII realms includes: Oscar-nominated cinematographer Don Burgess (Forrest Gump, Spider Man, Flight), production designer Gary Freeman (Maleficent, Everest), special effects supervisor Kevin Baillie (Flight, The Walk, Star Trek Beyond), Oscar-nominated costume designer Joanna Johnston (Lincoln, Saving Private Ryan, Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, Forrest Gump) and editors Mick Audsley (Everest, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time) and Jeremiah O'Driscoll (The Walk, Flight). Two-time Oscar-nominated composer Alan Silvestri (Forrest Gump, Back to the Future, Castaway) wrote the score.
