Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are appearing on the big screen together again for the first time in 10 years- since they met on the set of ‘Mr. and Mrs. Smith.’ Now they’re starring in ‘By The Sea’; last night they attended a Q&A for the movie in NYC. Brad and Angelina may play a couple that is having problems in ‘By The Sea,’ but I think it’s clear from their coziness for the cameras that they’re doing okay in real life ;).
Angelina has said before that the movie was not a reflection of any real life marital issues between her and Brad; she even pointed out that if they had been like their characters, Vanessa and Roland, then there’s no way they would have been able to successfully shoot the film. That all makes sense!
She said this about ‘By The Sea’:
It focuses on three couples, all at different stages in their lives. And at its center are the questions of what happened to Roland and Vanessa, and why they are in the place they are now.”
Is it just me or does the campaign for this movie seem to be, rather, well, quiet? There haven’t been many trailers or ads. I don’t think this movie will even get a nationwide release, will it? ‘By The Sea’ looks very much like an indie, art-house kind of film, but with two of the biggest movie stars in it, you’d think it would be getting a bit more attention. It’ll be interesting to see how it does at the box office, and if either of them garner any award nominations.
