Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s marriage takes a turn for the worst in the first teaser for the upcoming film By the Sea.

The real-life couple star as married pair Vanessa and Roland, who decide to take a trip to a small seaside town in France to save their rocky relationship.

But the sojourn in coastal France does not help the married couple judging from the trailer.

Instead, Jolie’s character Vanessa is seen crying, kicking her husband and being forced against a wall by him.

The film is written and directed by Jolie, following her directional debut with prisoner of war film Unbroken last year.

Pitt has taken time away from producing Oscar-winning movies including 12 Years A Slave and Selma to step back into the limelight for the film.


He also served as a producer on By the Sea, which sees him directed by his wife.

The film is due to be released in the UK on 11 December, after hitting US cinemas on 13 November.
