The first teaser trailer has been released for Allied, a World War II romantic spy thriller.

Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard star as spies in love with Pitt playing the role of intelligence officer Max Vatan while Cotillard plays French Resistance fighter Marianne Beausejour.

They meet in Casablanca (the city known for romance in times of war) in 1942. The two are forced to pretend they are married but then fall in love for real.

Allied is directed by Robert Zemeckis, whose impressive credits include Forrest Gump, Cast Away and Flight. This could be an Oscar contender.

It's due to hit cinemas this November.
