Release date: November 23rd
Cast: Brad Pitt, Marion Cotillard, Lizzy Caplan, Matthew Goode
Director: Robert Zemeckis (Forrest Gump)
Reason to be excited: In the year's boldest answer to "they don't make 'em like they used to," Pitt stars as spy Max Vatan, who, in 1942 North Africa, encounters French Resistance fighter Marianne Beausejour (Cotillard) on a mission behind enemy lines. There's love, there's war, there's probably backstabbing, and there are two famous people reminding us why we occasionally fall hard for movie stars. Zemeckis, a born-and-bred Hollywood tailor, should give this one the old-school push it needs to work.
