Mr and Mrs Smith

Writing about web page http://www.apple.com/trailers/fox/mrandmrssmith/

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie play husband and wife who are both assassins, but neither knows it of the other until they get assignments to kill… each other.

This is one of the darker horses of next summer's movies; the trailer has plenty of big guns and explosions, but it's hard to read what the tone of the film's going to be. Some bits play like light comedy, others seem darker; once the lead characters work out what's going on, they seem to be trying to zap each other with relish, which suggests that the tone could be quite black. If it's another War of the Roses or Prizzi's Honour then it could be great. And Doug Liman hasn't made a bad film yet; Go, Swingers and Bourne Identity have all been cool. So… maybe.
