Brad Pitt joins Margot Robbie for an advance Q&A for their new film Babylon in NYC

Their latest film is already receiving polarizing reactions.

But Brad Pitt, 58, and Margot Robbie, 32, were doing their best to promote their epic period dramedy Babylon with an advance screening in New York City on Wednesday.

Brad’s public outing comes just days after he was seen cozying up with actor Paul Wesley’s ex-wife Ines de Ramon, 29, in exclusive photos obtained by DailyMail.com.

Low key: Margot Robbie, 32, joined him while looking relaxed in a blazer and jeans

Showtime: Brad Pitt, 58, looked dapper in a suit as he joined Margot Robbie, 32, for an advance screening of their film Babylon, with a Q&A following the screening. He was seen out after DailyMail.com’s exclusive photos appeared to reveal a new romance 

Brad looked as good in a suit as ever, and he opted for a stylish dark brown item on the evening screening.

The Once Upon A Time In Hollywood star’s look featured a jacket with peaked lapels, though he dressed it down a bit by leaving his white dress shirt tie-free. 

He complemented the suit with a set of modest brown suede boots, and he added a touch of warmth on the chilly day with a dark plaid scarf that was wrapped loosely around his neck.

The A-lister wore his shaggy hair combed back, and he covered up with plastic aviator-style sunglasses while wearing a close-cropped gray goatee. 

Brad seemed to be in high spirits as he walked into the screening, and he stopped to wave at a crowd of adoring fans lined up to get a glimpse of him.

Margot showed that she was a master of the casual-chic look as she arrived at the advance screening, which was being held at an AMC theater.

She wore an oversize black pinstriped double-breasted blazer, which appeared to originally be designed for a man based on the position of its buttons.

She dressed down the rest of her look with a simple white top and a set of high-waisted relaxed-fit jeans that nearly dragged on the ground.

The Wolf Of Wall Street actress added some more color to the muted look with her pointy-toed maroon heels and her eye-catching quilted green handbag.

The blond beauty wore her long locks parted down the middle and cascading over her shoulders, which framed her gold necklace.

The stars’ new film Babylon is set at the height of the Roaring Twenties, as Hollywood begins to make the transition from silent films to the emerging talkies, which would soon become dominant.

Although more specific plot details are few and far between, Brad and Margot appear to be playing industry stars who get wrapped up in the cocaine-fueled debauchery of the movie business.

The film is set to blend fictional characters with real-life figures. The film also stars Diego Calva in a leading role with Pitt and Robbie, alogn with Jovan Adepo, Jean Smart, Tobey Maguire, his longtime friend Lukas Haas, Olivia Wilde, Max Minghella and Eric Roberts, among many more.

Official reviews haven’t yet dropped, but social media reactions to the three-hour epic were decidedly polarized, with some viewers applauding the frontline actors, while others criticized the film as a mess.

It is written and directed by Damien Chazelle, who previously helmed the music drama Whiplash, the Oscar-winning musical La La Land and the acclaimed box office flop First Man, which starred Ryan Gosling as Neil Armstrong. 

Babylon will be released in theaters on December 23, 2022.
