Brad Pitt World War II drama, “Allied”, hit the box office last week only to secure $18 million in ticket sales. The film has been speculated to be a failure financially and people believe it has something to with Angelina Jolie.
Rumors have it that the nasty smear campaign Jolie raised against Brad Pitt led to the movie’s downfall.
In fact, critics seem to believe that the Brangelina divorce could bring an end to Pitt’s career.
Did the Brad Pitt Angelina Jolie Divorce ruin “Allied” movie?
Over the last couple of months the names of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have flooded the headlines since the announcement of their divorce.
Celebrity Dirty laundry reported that people were surprised to witness Pitt walking the red carpet for the film’s promotion. The surprise of the fans and critics were justified because Pitt has had to deal with a lot lately.
Unlike Marion Cotillard, Pitt had not attended TV shows or magazine interviews for the film’s promotion. Although he did take part in a few premieres at Hong Kong and Madrid but critics believe was not enough for “Allied” at the box office. The weekend opening of “Allied” has been claimed to be Pitt’s worst in his entire career.
Hence, it seems like Pitt’s personal drama had an impact in his professional career as it insinuates the beginning of an end. The spy story set in World War II has been reported by Daily Mail to have failed to find an audience.
Angelina Jolie Ruining Brad Pitt, Marion Cotillard careers?
Critics point the finger at Jolie for the lukewarm reviews which “Allied” received. Jolie had announced the news about the divorce after rumors surrounding Pitt and Cotillard hit the air.
It was rumored that Pitt and Cotillard apart from their on screen chemistry were having an affair too. Although these rumors were slammed by Cotillard, Pitt still had to face a nasty smear campaign.
The essential reason behind Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s divorce is yet unknown. But Jolie’s smear campaign left many to term Pitt as a bad parent. He was allegedly accused for child abuse and also for his drug and alcohol issues. Although the FBI has put an end to the investigation, but it seems like the damage has been done and the ticket sales record of ‘Allied’ is the proof.
