Los Angeles, CA – November 2016: Huahua Media and Paramount Pictures are “allies” once again.
China’s Huahua Media and Paramount Pictures are working together to market a new Paramount film starring Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard entitled Allied.
Huahua and Paramount teamed for the highly successful films Star Trek Beyond and Transformers: Age of Extinction – which was the first film to cross the $300M box office milestone in China in 2014.
Allied, a World War II romantic thriller, opens in U.S theaters on 23 November 2016.
Brad Pitt plays the role of officer Max Vatan, who, in 1942 North Africa encounters French Resistance fighter Marianne Beauséjour, played by Cotillard, on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Reunited in London, their relationship is threatened by the extreme pressures of the war.
Actors Jared Harris, Simon McBurney, Lizzy Caplan, Daniel Betts and Matthew Goode co-star in Allied.
Allied was directed by Robert Zemeckis, known for his work on such popular films as Romancing the Stone, the Back to the Future film trilogy, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, and Forrest Gump, among others.
