Actors Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt caused quite a stir at a Queensland, Australia restaurant on a rare date night on Tuesday, briefly greeting droves of fans before retiring for a seafood dinner at the establishment.

Jolie, 38, and Pitt, 50, showed up at the Shipwreck Bar and Grill in Airlie Beach, Queensland in a white car, happily waving and posing for photographs with cheering fans, according to the Daily Mail.

The couple is in Australia as Jolie is filming scenes for her movie "Unbroken," according to The Courier-Mail. Jolie brought 130 cast and crew members to the country for filming. 

"This shoot has resulted in more than 130 extra people in town over the next few days, injecting about $1 million into the local economy," Whitsunday Regional Council Mayor Jenny Whitney said. "It shows that, just three days after a cyclonic event, the Whitsunday region is truly open for business.

"Having the Whitsunday region appear in a Hollywood blockbuster movie will also be a great boost for the region's tourism for years to come, as we have had with previous movies filmed here," Whitney added.

Jolie, Pitt and their six children were rumored to have stayed at the Qualia Resort in Whitsundays over the Christmas holiday. It is the same resort Oprah Winfrey stayed at during her most recent Australian visit.

"Unbroken" is Jolie's second shot at playing director. The movie, scheduled to hit theaters for Christmas, is an adaptation of Laura Hillenbrand's bestseller about the true story of Louis Zamperini.

Zamperini, an Olympic runner, enlisted in the military during World War II, survived a plane crash in the Pacific and went afloat 47 days before being imprisoned by the Japanese for more than two years.

"On set, we started to joke and say, 'Tomorrow will be easier,' knowing full well that on this challenging shoot, there are no easy days," Jolie told Entertainment Weekly back in October while filming. "Anytime it gets tough, we think of the real men who lived through this, and no one complains. In fact, we all just feel honored to be here."
