Universal Pictures have released the first teaser trailer for Angelina Jolie’s third directorial effort, By the Sea.
Jolie directs and stars in this romantic drama alongside her real-life husband, Brad Pitt. In the film – which was also penned by Jolie – the pair play a troubled American couple, who travel to a tranquil and picturesque seaside resort in 1970’s France, in an attempt to try and remedy their failing marriage.
