Angelina Jolie Slaps Brad Pitt in the Face in ‘By the Sea’ Trailer

We all knew Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's new film "By the Sea" was about an unhappy couple, but man, they weren't kidding.

Fans got a first glimpse at the highly anticipated movie Thursday once the trailer was released, and it is a minute and 15 seconds of feeling sorry for these two people who clearly hate each other.

The pair's characters are ridiculously disconnected, with Roland (Pitt) going about his business after the couple arrives at a seaside resort in 1970s France. Vanessa (Jolie) sits and sulks in a room as crocodile tears roll down from those big baby blues 

And then, when they finally have to interact, it's not pretty.

"Are we ever going to talk about it?" Roland is heard asking. "Do you hate me?" Vanessa replies, "You know my reason."

And then she gives him a solid slap in the face! Ooooooh.

"By the Sea" marks the first film the pair are starring in together since their famous 2005 flick "Mr. & Mrs. Smith," and Jolie, who also wrote and directed this project, explained that the duo had to pull from their personal lives to accomplish the tension felt between these characters.

"I'd be directing myself and him in a scene where we're having a fight, and I'd be pulling out the parts [of him] that have an aggression toward me or when you're frustrated with each other–it was very heavy," Jolie recently said in an interview with the DGA.

"We kept joking that all of the crew felt like they were living in a house where the parents were fighting and you don't know where to stand or where to look."

Watch the trailer above to see for yourself. "By the Sea" hits theaters Nov. 13.
