Jolie, Pitt square off on Star Movies' 'Opening Night'

MUMBAI: A bored married couple is surprised to learn that they are assassins hired to kill each other! On 5 June 2005 at 8:30 pm Star Movies' programme Opening Night will showcase two Hollywood hotties Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie in Mr. And Mrs. Smith.

What is unique about the concept of Opening Night is that it brings footage of big blockbusters prior to the theatrical release in India.

Mr. And Mrs. Smith is being billed as a smart, witty thriller that keeps up the action and fun by showcasing the gripping conflict between a blistering husband and his pretty wife. It is all about danger, sex and misunderstanding.

Opening Night will not only showcase clippings of the unreleased movie, but will also take viewers behind the scenes for an exclusive snapshot on the making of this exhilarating thriller. In fact, to bring the necessary attitude to their portrayals of top assassins proficient in a number of firearms and deadly martial arts; Pitt and Jolie actually attended what the filmmakers describe as "spy school."

Inspired by the ballet-like grace of Hong Kong action films, the ideas for the script were more akin to those of a traditional musical than the conventional action movie. Opening Night will showcase the real story behind this dangerous cat and mouse game, which culminates into an explosive fight between a husband and wife.

Presented by rising star Terence Yin Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle Of Life Opening Night gives viewers an up-close and intimate view of the most anticipated films before their general release. Previous episodes of this hit show has featured Hollywood blockbusters like Robots, Ocean's Twelve, I- Robot and Kingdom of Heaven.
