    Movie Details & Credits

  • Critics Review

    80
    The Telegraph Robbie Collin

    Allied, swathed in larger-than-life, luxurious imposture, is the real heart-racing deal.
    70
    Village Voice Bilge Ebiri

    Allied doesn’t deliver any particularly shocking twists or turns; the real surprise here is how much a well-told, well-acted tale can still resonate.
    63
    Slant Magazine Jake Cole

    In the film, Robert Zemeckis brings to bear his pop-epic scope in what’s otherwise a claustrophobic story.
    60
    Screen International Tim Grierson

    A World War II romance-thriller that starts off smartly but sputters to an underwhelming finale.
    58
    Indiewire Kate Erbland

    Allied can never settle on a consistent tone, bumping along from smooth spy adventure to stylized war picture to treatise on marriage, all peppered with stilted attempts at humor for an added dash of incomprehensibility.
    50
    The Playlist Oliver Lyttelton

    It’s an engaging film in many respects, but one that exemplifies a lot of the problems that have trailed Zemeckis across his career.
    40
    Empire Phil de Semlyen

    Zemeckis’ old-school romance has its moments and Cotillard gives it her all, but it lacks the zip and chemistry to truly spark.
    40
    TheWrap Robert Abele

    Allied is ultimately a thin love story, with creaky suspense machinery and star turns from Pitt and Cotillard that feel more like matinee idol dress-up than a meeting of the magnetic.
    40
    The Guardian Peter Bradshaw

    Director Robert Zemeckis is usually known for his zestiness and zippiness; but this is arduous. Screenwriter Steven Knight scripted smart movies such as Locke, Dirty Pretty Things and Eastern Promises, and there are some nice touches, but it resembles an unconvincing and sluggish pastiche of a war movie.
    40
    The Hollywood Reporter David Rooney

    Plodding and pedestrian even in the technical magic that is a Zemeckis trademark, this is a case of a director out of his element with a script that fails to generate much heat.

  • Box Office: ‘Moana’ Gobbles Up $9.9 Million to Win Thanksgiving Day

    25 November 2016 | Variety – Film News | See recent Variety – Film News news »

    Disney’s animated Polynesian adventure “Moana” led U.S. moviegoing on Thanksgiving Day with $9.9 million at 3,875 locations as it heads towards the $85 million to $90 million range during the five-day holiday break.

    Warner Bros.’ “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” finished a close second with $9.6 million at 4,144 sites on Thanksgiving, pushing the Harry Potter spinoff to $110 million in its first seven days.

    But three other wide-release openers aimed at adults found only moderate traction on Thanksgiving with Brad Pitt’s “Allied” grossing $2.3 million, Billy Bob Thornton’s “Bad Santa 2” with $1.4 million and Warren Beatty’s “Rules Don’t Apply” nearly invisible with $285,000.

    Film Review: ‘Moana

    Moana” has now taken in $25.6 million in its first two days. It’s on a similar pace to Disney’s “Frozen,” which had hit $26.5 million at the same point in 2013 on its way to a record $93.6 million for the five-day Thanksgiving opening.

    Second Opinion – Allied (2016)

    24 November 2016 8:50 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

    Allied, 2016.

    Directed by Robert Zemeckis.

    Starring Brad Pitt, Marion Cotillard, Jared Harris, Lizzy Caplan, and Matthew Goode.

    Synopsis:

    In 1942, an intelligence officer in North Africa encounters a female French Resistance fighter on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. When they reunite in London, their relationship is tested by the pressures of war.

    Allied is a remarkable film from the always reliable veteran director Robert Zemeckis (the Back to the Future trilogy, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Castaway, last year’s disappointingly overlooked and underappreciated The Walk) that essentially feels like three movies in one, thanks to the filmmaker’s efficiency at switching up the tone throughout each act. Allied is 1/3rd espionage action, 1/3rd World War II era romance, 1/3rd relationship trust thriller, and 100% riveting.

    Each of the tones come and go gracefully as Zemeckis  tells a captivating story regarding a Canadian intelligence officer falling in love with a French Resistance »

    Box Office: Disney’s ‘Moana’ Tops Thanksgiving Eve Ticket Sales With $15.7 Million

    24 November 2016 7:34 AM, PST | Variety – Film News | See recent Variety – Film News news »

    Disney’s “Moana” topped the Thanksgiving eve box office, picking up $15.7 million in its first full day of release, and leaving the competition in its wake.

    The animated adventure is tracking closely to “Frozen,” which picked up $15.2 million over the same holiday period in 2013, ultimately making $93.4 million over the five day festivities. “Moana,” which follows a girl in the Pacific islands who embarks on an oceanic journey to save her people, is on pace to debut to more than $80 million over the five-day Thanksgiving corridor. Disney didn’t release a budget for “Moana,” but most animated films from the studio run between $150 million to $200 million.

    Disney is on a hot streak at the box office. The company has fielded a number of hits this year — a collection of blockbusters that includes “The Jungle Book,” “Zootopia,” and “Finding Dory.” It still has “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” left to open next month. »

    Allied Assembles One Final Media Blowout Before Release

    See Full Gallery Here

    At its core, Allied may be a WWII thriller revolving around themes of espionage, subterfuge and flat-out mutiny, but to trumpet the movie’s release, Paramount Pictures has blown the lid off Robert Zemeckis’ starry thriller with a hoard of clips, TV spots and high-res stills showcasing the film’s leading cast.

    At the forefront of that ensemble are Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard, who headline Allied as Max Vatan and Marianne Beausejour, a French Resistance fighter, respectively. Assigned to a top-secret mission in North Africa – Casablanca, to be exact – during the throes of World War II, Pitt and Cotillard’s duelling spies strike up an intense romance behind enemy lines.

    Their seemingly perfect relationship is put to the sword, however, upon reuniting in London, where accusations are levelled against Cotillard’s Marianne for double-crossing. There are many more story details scattered throughout the deluge of TV spots and clips below, »

    Watch a Pair of Early Short Films From Robert Zemeckis

    23 November 2016 1:35 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

    It’s strange to use the word “under-appreciated” when it comes to the director behind such hits as Back to the Future, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Contact, Cast Away, and Forrest Gump, but in today’s Hollywood it feels like Robert Zemeckis‘ talents are often overlooked. His eye for composition and structure scene-by-scene is remarkable in his recent return to live-action and certainly the case when it comes to his Allied, which is more entertaining than most of its awards-fare brethren.

    With the release of his World War II thriller, it’s time to take a look back at his early directorial eye when he was at USC with two short films. The first is 1972’s The Lift, featuring black-and-white photography and a jazzy score as we follow a man’s bout with machinery. Playing with shadows and close-ups in tight quarters, it shows off a 20-year-old Zemeckis’ control of the camera, »

    Box Office: ‘Moana’ Heads for Heroic $88 Million Thanksgiving Weekend Opening

    23 November 2016 12:54 PM, PST | Variety – Film News | See recent Variety – Film News news »

    Disney’s animated adventure “Moana” is dominating North American moviegoing with as much as $88 million for the five-day Thanksgiving holiday period, early estimates showed Wednesday.

    Brad Pitt’s “Allied” appears to be performing respectably with around $19 million for the five days while Billy Bob Thornton’s “Bad Santa 2” is heading for a decent return in the $12 million range. Meanwhile, Warren Beatty’s “Rules Don’t Apply” is generating only modest interest with about $5 million for the holiday period.

    Moana” opened with plenty of box office power by taking in $2.6 million at Tuesday night preview showings starting at 7 p.m. in North America. That doubled the $1.3 million Tuesday preview record set last year by Disney’s “The Good Dinosaur.” These latest estimates blow past earlier predictions that had the film opening in the $75 million range.

    The Thanksgiving holiday is often a big one for Hollywood, with studios rolling out some of its most highly-anticipated movies to take advantage of the long holiday weekend. This year is no different, with Disney debuting its new princess Moana in theaters, with many projecting it to take the Thanksgiving box office crown this weekend. The animated adventure is already off to a good start, breaking a Tuesday box office record with $2.6 million.

    The Wrap reports that Moana doubled the previous Tuesday record set by another Disney animated movie, The Good Dinosaur, which pulled in a then-record $1.3 million in the same frame last year. Moana also earned more than the Thursday night preview screenings for recent animated hits such as Zootopia ($1.7 million) and Frozen ($1.2 million). Box office analysts are predicting that Moana could earn between $70 million and $80 million for the five-day holiday weekend.

    Moana was produced under a whopping $150 million budget, »

    Allied Review: Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard Are a Dynamic Duo

    23 November 2016 8:12 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

    Scripted by the brilliant Steven Knight and directed by Robert Zemeckis, Allied is a throwback to Hollywood’s golden age. Glamourous stars sizzle onscreen in a big budget period piece. The film is equal parts romance and thriller. It succeeds much more often than it fails. A few tweaks could have made Allied a classic. It doesn’t quite get there, but is definitely captivating. Marion Cotillard absolutely towers over this film. Brad Pitt is able, but his sensual co-star smolders.

    In 1942, a Canadian soldier, Max Vatan (Brad Pitt), clandestinely parachutes into Nazi held Morocco. He’s on a secret mission to rendezvous with a French resistance agent, Marianne Beausejour (Marion Cotillard). The pair must play a married couple, reunited after months apart. The heightened danger leads to a titillating romance between the spies. They fall madly in love. But is it real? Seduction and deception are the keys to espionage. All may »

    How Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard Became the Most Glamorous WWII Spies Ever: All the Scoop from Allied’s Costume Designer

    With lead actors as attractive as Marion Cotillard and Brad Pitt, Allied costume designer Joanna Johnston says “you could put them in a brown paper bag and they would look amazing.”

    But when it came time to design their costumes for the new WWII spy thriller Allied, Johnston tells People she was inspired by the classics. “The inspiration really was old-fashioned Hollywood — films were slightly lifted during that time. There was quite a glamour aspect to it, rather than it being sort of war-torn.”

    Box Office: Disney’s ‘Moana’ Sets Sail With Record-Breaking $2.6 Million on Tuesday

    23 November 2016 7:18 AM, PST | Variety – Film News | See recent Variety – Film News news »

    Kicking off the Thanksgiving holiday break with gusto, Disney’s animated adventure “Moana” opened with plenty of box office power and took in $2.6 million at Tuesday night preview showings starting at 7 p.m. in North America.

    The “Moana” gross doubled the $1.3 million Tuesday preview record set last year by Disney’s “The Good Dinosaur.” It’s also far above the $1.2 million preview gross from “Frozen,” the $1.4 million Thursday preview total for “Big Hero 6” and the $1.7 million Thursday preview for “Zootopia” in March.

    Moana” is expected to easily top the holdover numbers for “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” during the five-day Thanksgiving holiday along with the openings for Brad Pitt’s thriller “Allied,” Billy Bob Thornton’s raucous comedy “Bad Santa 2” and Warren Beatty’s Howard Hughes comedy-drama “Rules Don’t Apply.”

    Allied Review

    23 November 2016 7:08 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

    Allied is somewhat of a rare thing these days – a Robert Zemeckis film that functions almost entirely without the aid of crucial CGI. Indeed, in the years since 2000’s Cast Away, only the director’s 2012 airline drama Flight veered away from computer generated actors and green screen-heavy environments (despite the odd blockbuster effects sequence). This World War II suspense drama, then, is about as old-fashioned Hollywood as Zemeckis has ever been, drawing on classics like Casablanca and running the gamut of Hitchcock-inspired suspense. Alliedcertainly looks the part. The impeccable wartime costume design, breathtaking Moroccan vistas and explosive skies of Blitzkrieg-era London add up to a fabulous period aesthetic; throughout, Allied is a sumptuous feast for the eyes and should prove a visual thrill for any WWII fanatic. However, despite conducting affairs at a fairly thrilling pace, Zemeckis fails to produce a genuinely compelling story. Allied gets by on pure aesthetic, »

    “It’s still the same old story…”, but told it a new way. That old story being one of a couple that finds romance during wartime. In the case of this new film, that time is the early 1940’s, soon after the Us entered World War II. There have been lots of great romances set in that period, such as The English Patient and, of course, Casablanca. As a matter of fact, this new film begins in that exact locale. But while other movies would do the final fade-out with its stars driving off into the desert (usually toward the setting sun), this tale’s drama is just starting. That drama is when two people from different worlds are united by a global threat, then soon become more than a couple Allied by war.
