Now here's something into which to sink your teeth! Paramount could hardly have begged for a box office coup like Allied promises to be, what with all the Brangelina divorce drama and the rumours of his affair with Marion Cotillard, albeit quickly quashed by all parties. It gives Robert Zemeckis' wartime thriller the mainstream appeal it might otherwise have lacked; that appeal, however, is supplied to me by this new trailer, far stronger than the teaser, and hinting at the central intrigue to this enticing spy mystery story. Written by Steven Knight, it suddenly seems such an attractive proposition! Released in the US on the 23rd of November and in the UK on the 25th.
