Angelina Jolie-Brad Pitt Movie “By the Sea” to Open AFI Fest November 5th (Watch Trailer)


At last we get news of the Angelina Jolie-Brad Pitt movie “By the Sea.” Angie directed it, and we’ve been waiting for festival news. Now comes word that “By the Sea” will open the AFI Fest in Los Angeles on November 5th. The Universal Pictures release comes out eight days later, on November 13th.

“By the Sea” is not a sequel to “Mr. and Mrs. Smith,” the last movie the couple appeared in. Or maybe it is– it’s about a married couple going through angst in their relationship at a French seaside resort. It does sound a little like “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” We’ll see. Jolie (now Jolie-Pitt) is a very savvy filmmaker. And Melanie Laurent is in the film, so that’s value added.

Audi is the sponsor of the AFI Fest. And the premiere is at what we used to call Grauman’s– now TCL–  Chinese Theater. Maybe Brad and Angie will put their handprints in the cement outside. (And Lucy and Ethel can steal them!)

Love AFI. They do a lot of good work.
