Director: Robert Zemeckis

Starring: Brad Pitt, Marion Cotillard

Release: November 2rd, 2016

This trailer makes the movie seem very over-dramatic and over-stylized, I just have to assume that’s what Zemeckis is going for and that it will all work out in the end.  If he sticks to this style throughout, this color-saturated melodrama of WWII, I do think it can work, the film has the actors to carry it through after all.  Pitt & Cotillard as a pair are enough to get me in a seat, and then there’s Zemeckis, a director with a shockingly packed filmography: Romancing the Stone, the Back to the Future trilogy, Death Becomes Her, Forrest Gump, What Lies Beneath, Cast Away, The Polar Express, Beowulf, A Christmas Carol, Flight, The Walk.  Not all perfect films, but the guy knows what he’s doing, and I think I’ll trust him to pull this one off.
