Because WWII will never grow old when it comes to awards-season releases, here’s the trailer for Allied, in which Marion Cotillard and Brad Pitt team up to fight Nazis and look glamorous. Cotillard plays Marianne Beausejour, a French Resistance fighter who uses her charm as an asset alongside her excellent shooting skills. Pitt is Max Vatan, an intelligence officer. His first line is about how he heard she was “beautiful,” officially crowning him Captain Obvious. Together, they fire guns in formalwear, make out, and get married. But the latter half of the trailer seems to imply something is awry. Perhaps those suspicious glances imply Marianne is not what she seems?

Robert Zemeckis—fresh off his technically wondrous flop The Walk—directed this film from a screenplay by Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight. Allied slinks into theaters November 27.
