WATCH: Brad Pitt is WWII-Era Assassin in ‘Allied’ Trailer

Paramount Pictures released the first teaser trailer for its upcoming World War II spy thriller Allied on Friday.

Brad Pitt is intelligence officer Max Vatan, who meets and falls for French resistance fighter Marianne Beausejour (Marion Cotillard) in 1942 Casablanca while working undercover to assassinate a German officer.

“Being good at this kind of work is not very beautiful,” Cotillard’s character tells Pitt’s Vatan.

Allied is directed by Robert Zemeckis (Forrest Gump, Flight) and written by Steven Knight (Eastern Promises, Peaky Blinders). In addition to Pitt and Cotillard, the film also stars Lizzy Caplan, Jared Harris, Matthew Goode, Charlotte Hope and August Diehl.

Allied is in theaters November 23.
