Ten years after lighting up the big screen in Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are reuniting for the movies once again.

Entertainment Weekly released the first trailer for By The Sea, which offers a grim look at the messy relationship between lovers writer Roland (Pitt) and former dancer Vanessa (Jolie).

Harry Nilsson’s melancholy “Perfect Day” plays over the clip as Roland and Vanessa, yell, kick and scream at each other — very much like Pitt and Jolie’s first foray into on-screen romance!

The clip also features picturesque views of the island of Gozo, but don’t go planning your next vacation around the film’s locales. “It’s this lovely and quiet island and we built the hotel and bar,” Jolie explains. “Everyone who has seen the movie wants to go to that exact place — but it’s just the magic of film.”

Days after secretly tying the knot in France last summer, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Pitt were hard at work on their latest collaboration, By The Sea.

Now, thanks to exclusive access obtained by People magazine, we’re getting a first look at the couple as they reunite on-screen together in the romantic drama.

For 2005’s Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt incorporated their real-life chemistry in playing husband-and-wife assassins. Ten years, five children, and one wedding later, Jolie says that the couple are drawing on another real-life element for their next collaboration—marital frustration.

In an interview with the D.G.A., the Oscar winner discusses By the Sea, the drama she wrote and directed “about a deeply unhappy couple on vacation in France who becomes involved with a pair of newlyweds staying at their seaside inn.” After filming the movie in Malta, Jolie reveals what it was like to be directing herself and her husband, who play the unhappy couple, during the drama’s more intense argument scenes.

“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,” says Jolie. “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 to stand or where to look.”

Patrick Osborne has signed on to direct Paramount Pictures’ Battling Boy movie!. The Tracking Board has the news, reporting that the Academy Award winning director of Walt Disney Animation’s short film “Feast” will helm the big screen adaptation of Paul Pope‘s acclaimed graphic novel.

Published in 2013, Battling Boy was named one of NPR’s best books of that year. It is official described as follows:

Monsters roam through Arcopolis, swallowing children into the horrors of their shadowy underworld. Only one man is a match for them – the genius vigilante Haggard West.

Unfortunately, Haggard West is dead.

Arcopolis is desperate, but when its salvation comes in the form of a twelve-year-old demigod, nobody is more surprised than Battling Boy himself.

It’s time to meet an electrifying new hero.

Set up through Brad Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment, the Battling Boy movie will be produced by Sarah Esberg and Jeremy Kleiner.

LOS ANGELES — Brad Pitt and Bill Maher say Costco contributes to animal cruelty by selling eggs from caged hens.

Pitt sent a letter to the chief executive of the big-box chain Thursday asking the company to stop selling eggs produced this way. Pitt’s letter to Craig Jelinek says caged birds suffer atrophy of their muscles and bones from years of immobility, adding that the cages have been banned in California and much of Europe.

“As you know, these birds producing eggs for your shelves are crammed five or more into cages that are not large enough for even one hen to spread her wings,” Pitt writes.

Maher took aim at the company in an editorial published last week by The New York Times.

“Multiple investigations into battery cages document animals with deteriorated spinal cords, some who have become paralyzed and then mummified in their cages,” Maher wrote. “Imagine cramming five cats or dogs into tiny cages, hundreds of thousands in each shed, for their entire lives. That would warrant cruelty charges, of course. But when the egg industry does it to hens, it’s considered business as usual.”

Both commended Costco for its other animal-welfare efforts and called on the company to make good on its 2007 promise to move toward uncaging its egg-laying hens.

Pitt and Maher each spoke out on behalf of Farm Sanctuary, an organization that advocates against the mistreatment of animals and factory farming.
