Angelina Jolie (or Jolie Pitt as she's now officially known) finds herself in the director's chair once again for her latest project By The Sea, but this time she's also writing, producing and starring in the film which sees her star alongside her real-life hubby Brad Pitt as a couple going through some serious marital woes—a tad ironic considering they started filming the movie DAYS after they themselves tied the knot last year.
And while we know that it's a work of fiction, it's hard to remember that these two are just acting in the brand new trailer for the film. Don't worry guys, we're sure it in no way reflects their real relationship.
Still though, the clip and the corresponding photos are pretty raw. In one of the stills 40-year-old Angie is seen looking utterly stunning but very sullen as she sits on the end of the bed while 51-year-old Brad gazes longingly into the distance, as if the pair are just recovering from a full-blown fight. Tense much?
Set in the 1970s, the film depicts the troubled marriage between a writer, Roland [Pitt], and his wife, Vanessa [Jolie], as they journey in a French seaside resort where they get close to fellow travellers and consequently 'begin to come to terms with unresolved issues in their own lives.'
And, from the looks of Angelina sobbing uncontrollably into Brad's arms, it looks like it's going to be a real tear-jerker for the audience too.
Speaking passionately about the film, Angie said: 'This is a story about a relationship derailed by loss, the tenacity of love and the path to recovery and acceptance. It has been a privilege to explore these universal human experiences with such a generous and talented cast and crew.'
With a release date of November 13th 2015, it's clear to see that Angelina is hoping the film will be worthy of Oscar contention, as this is one of the last dates that a film can be released within the time frame to be considered for the nomination process. However, with the stellar acting cred between these two and the obvious raw emotion they have with one another in these photographs and the accompanying trailer, we reckon it could be a shoe in.
By The Sea comes ten years after Brad and Angelina infamously starred alongside each other in Mr & Mrs Smith, where it has been suggested that Brad fell in love with his now-wife while he was still wed to fellow actress Jennifer Aniston, who actually married her long-time partner Justin Theroux just last week.
As far as Angie and Brad's tense on-screen relationship goes, we're hoping that the next film these two embark on together is another stellar comedy—we can't take the tears much longer...
