Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt may be loved up in real life but they clearly had to act their behinds off for new film By the Sea.
The first trailer for the drama, which is set in the 70s and is written, directed, and produced by Jolie, shows them playing a couple on holiday in France making each other very miserable in a hotel room.
There are fight scenes, some physical, and it looks like it's going to be a tough watch. Jolie previously said Pitt drew on some of their real life arguments to fuel his ire.
Pitt plays American writer Roland who is married to Jolie's Vanessa. Their marriage is in crisis and the trip to France is an effort to salvage what they can.
It's on a smaller scale to her previous directorial offering, the epic Unbroken, focusing as it does on a couple's relationship but it's likely to be no less unflinching.
By the Sea is slated for a December 11 release in Ireland.
