Directed by Robert Zemeckis, Allied tells the true story of assassins who fall in love after meeting on a kill mission in North Africa in 1942. Pitt plays Max Vatan, an intelligence officer, while Cotillard portrays French Resistance fighter Marianne Beausejour.

The WWII love story gets complicated after Pitt’s character learns that his wife may be a German spy. He’s faced with trying to prove her innocence (without arousing suspicion), and potentially disobeying orders to "execute" the love of his life.

There's no denying that Allied gives off some Mr. & Mrs. Smith vibes, but the chemistry between Pitt, 52, and Cotillard, 41, is strictly for the cameras. The French actress refuted rumors that she caused the split between Pitt and Angelina Jolie, on Instagram last month.

"This is going to be my first and only reaction to the whirlwind news that broke 24 hours ago and that I was swept into," Cotillard wrote in a post announcing her pregnancy. "I am not used to commenting on things like this nor taking them seriously but as this situation is spiraling and affecting people I love, I have to speak up."

"Firstly, many years ago, I met the man of my life, father of our son and of the baby we are expecting," she said of longtime love Guillaume Canet, and their 5-year-old son, Marcel. "He is my love, my best friend, the only one that I need."
