Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie fight in the first trailer for ‘By the Sea’

7

btsOne of my most anticipated films of the year is By the Sea, Angelina Jolie‘s next directorial feature, starring her and Brad Pitt and we finally got a glimpse at the film via the newly released trailer. The movie centers on American writer Roland (Pitt) and his wife Vanessa (Jolie), who arrive in a tranquil and picturesque seaside resort in 1970s France, their marriage in apparent crisis. As they spend time with fellow travelers, including young newlyweds Lea (Melanie Laurent) and François (Mevil Poupaud) and village locals Michel (Niels Arestrup) and Patrice (Richard Bohringer), the couple begins to come to terms with unresolved issues in their own lives. There are so many good shots and crazy moments in this trailer. What do you guys think?

    Love the trailer and hope it stays very promising until it’s final finish product….love the soundtrack , the cinematography and very 70’s look of the film…..acting from both leads is something to look forward to…….can’t wait and hope it lands to any upcoming Film Fests.

      Looking at its release date maybe a trip to AFI Fest or NYFF is in the cards

  • Loved it. Just what I needed to get hyped.

    The only thing I admired about that trailer was the way it cut from “starring” to “written and directed by”. Jolie has two flop director films and I’m so sick of everyone trying to hype her up. How many failures does she need? Maybe this will be good but why isn’t anyone hesitant? Everyone’s just willing to forgive her every single time.

      I don’t know if anyone is trying to hype her up. She’s my favorite celebrity/actor and I’m excited to see if this could be a good film. I’ll always be here for Angie.

      And didn’t unbroken make like $160 million? Idk if that’s a flop. Maybe critically…

        In terms of Oscars I’m talking. It got no major Oscar nominations and yet here it is, prominent in Clayton’s predictions. All last year I was saying “WAIT” and no one listened and then click it fizzled and
