Universal Pictures is having a banner year. They set some pretty big industry records, wrecking the box office with their franchise sequels and one very sly biopic that no one saw coming. Now, they are ready to unleash their fall and holiday slate, which runs from September to November. They're going to tap out early, with nothing set for release in December. That's okay. They've already done better than any other studio in 2015. They could take the rest of the year off, and it still wouldn't matter.
But they're not going to do that. Traditionally, fall movies are all about Oscar. It's the awards season, and most studios are ready to flaunt their drama-heavy fare. Universal is taking a slightly different approach. While they have a few Academy Award contenders coming our way over the course of the next three months, they seem more interested in keeping the big blockbuster train moving. »
Looks like ABC is still going forward with their "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." spin-off.
First reported about last year, the concept has reportedly been retooled from its original "Mr. and Mrs. Smith"-style concept to something different. It will however still focus on the former couple and their continuing adventures.
It's reportedly still too early to tell if the new series will be launched as a backdoor pilot in the upcoming third season of "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.". Jeffrey Bell and Paul Zbyszewski would executive produce.

Mark Wahlberg has signed on to star in New Line Cinema's buddy cop comedy Partners. The actor is no stranger to the genre, having starred in 2010's unconventional cop movie, The Other Guys, but this project is said to turn the genre on its ear. There will be no "bromance" between these cops in Partners, but quite the opposite.
The story centers on an Lapd detective (Mark Wahlberg) who has a one-night stand with a beautiful woman. He soon discovers that this woman is actually a high-ranking FBI agent, who is his new boss on a high-profile case. The project has been compared to the 2005 action thriller blockbuster Mr. and Mrs. Smith, which starred Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Partners is set to feature a number of huge action set pieces.

This is the debut trailer for By the Sea, a drama written and directed by Angelina Jolie that reunites the Hollywood couple on the big screen for the first time since their 2005 hit Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Suffice to say By the Sea is a very different movie. “Set in France during the mid-1970s, […]

They haven’t appeared on-screen since their 2005 effort Mr. and Mrs. Smith, but now a married couple in real-life, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have squared off in the upcoming drama By The Sea. We’ve just received the first By The Sea trailer, which you can see below.
This is a very different effort to their previous movie, and revolves around a couple kicking about France as their marriage is on the verge of collapse.
Here’s the proper, official plot:
Set in France during the mid-1970s, Vanessa, a former dancer, and her husband Roland, an American writer, travel the country together. They seem to be growing apart, but when they linger in one quiet, seaside town they begin to draw close to some of its more vibrant inhabitants, such »

The last time Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Pitt sparred on screen, it was as married assassins in Mr. And Mrs. Smith. Don’t expect many explosions in their latest joint venture, unless you mean of the emotional kind. Here’s the teaser trailer for By The Sea.Written and directed by Jolie Pitt, this is much more of an intimate drama, a throwback to 1970s films set in the era itself, and finds Vanessa (Jolie Pitt), a former dancer, and her husband Roland, an American writer, travelling the French countryside together. They seem to be growing apart, but when they linger in one quiet, seaside town they begin to draw close to some of its more vibrant inhabitants, such as a local bar/café-keeper and a hotel owner. Obviously there are issues to be worked out here, and from the looks of this, there will be tears, if not blood. »
Here’s our first look at By The Sea, which Angelina Jolie wrote, directed and produced. Oh, she also stars in it with husband Brad Pitt; it’s their first onscreen pairing in a decade. This one’s a tad different from the 2005 assassin actioner Mr. And Mrs. Smith. In the film inspired by European cinema and theater of the 1960s and '70s, we find the couple in obvious crisis. They’re ensconced at a scenic resort in 1970s France, but the pair really needs to work some stuff… »
There’s no doubt that Angelina Jolie is one of the most talented female directors currently working. She also happens to be a gifted actress married to a gifted actor. Her relationship with Brad Pitt has been very public, and they’ve taken on the arguable title of First Family of Hollywood.
These modern-day Hollywood royals will appear on-screen again for the first time since 2005’s Mr. and Mrs. Smith in By the Sea, written and directed by Jolie. The real-life couple star as two people caught in an unhappy marriage who try and resolve their differences in the south of France.
Set in the mid-1970s, By the Sea also stars Melanie Laurent (Inglourious Basterds) and Melvil Poupaud (Laurence Anyways). The trailer is suitably gorgeous, and we’re expecting lots of 70s-era French references.
Catch By the Sea in Cineplex theatres November 13th, and watch the first trailer below. »

Since their first appearance onscreen together in the 2005 Doug Liman action film Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Brad Pitt and Angeline Jolie have gone on to earn critical acclaim for a number of performances. Pitt’s filmography has since added Inglourious Basterds, The Assassination of Jesse James by the coward Robert Ford, The Tree of Life, and Burn After Reading, while Jolie has appeared in A Mighty Heart and Changeling while also stepping behind the camera for In The Land of Blood and Honey and Unbroken. The duo’s next project, however, is poised to see them reunite onscreen, this time in a dramatic turn. The film, titled By The Sea, has the following plot synopsis.

You may recall By the Sea as the film Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were working when they got secret-married (!) last summer. Jolie's directing the couple's first film together since Mr. and Mrs. Smith, the movie where they allegedly fell in love — so if the tradition holds, expect both of them to become sexually obsessed with some French villagers in real life, too. »

Ten years on from their work on "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" which saw them come together in real life, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are reuniting on screen together in the Jolie-directed period relationship drama "By the Sea".

As they spend time with fellow travelers, the couple begins to come to terms with unresolved issues in their lives. The first trailer for the film has arrived and shows more of a thriller vibe in the last few moments than you might expect. The film opens in cinemas on November 13th.

If you take Mr. and Mrs. Smith, make them super depressed, and whisk them off to a gorgeous vacation in the south of France, you've got "By the Sea."
The movie marks the first on-screen collaboration for Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt since "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" 10 years ago. Since then, of course, they had a bunch of kids and got married and basically became the most famous celebrity couple in the world. They've acted in many movies, separately, and Jolie has directed a couple (including last year's "Unbroken"). Now, finally, they reunite for "By the Sea," which Jolie also helmed.
The first trailer is a mood-setting, meditative bit - there are tears from Jolie, anger from Pitt, some face-slapping, and walks along stunning shorelines.
Watch the trailer.
It does not explain the characters or why they are so melancholy. Here is what we know: Jolie and Pitt play Vanessa and Roland, »

Angelina Jolie recently wrapped up filming for her much-anticipated directorial feature, By the Sea. The movie stars Angelina and her husband, Brad Pitt, and is about "a deeply unhappy couple on vacation in France who becomes involved with a pair of newlyweds staying at their seaside inn." In an interview with the Directors Guild of America, Angelina got candid and revealed what it was like directing herself and Brad, saying, "I'd be directing myself and him in a scene where we're having a fight, and I'd be pulling out the parts [of him] that have an aggression toward me or when you're frustrated with each other - it was very heavy." She then added that she and Brad were able to make light of the situation: "We kept joking that all of the crew felt like they were living in a house where the parents were fighting and you don't know where »
The story of a military officer who is brought into an alien war with the power to reset the day was a cool concept, and when you threw director Doug Liman (Mr. And Mrs. Smith), writer Christopher McQuarrie (The Usual Suspects) and Tom Cruise into the mix, it seemed like a no-brainer. As we all know, the film didn't exactly sweep up at the box office (domestically), but it is widely considered to be one... Read More »
