This week in theaters, the sexy-Italian espionage film The Tourist, based off the 2005 French thriller Anthony Zimmer hits theaters with the ultimate A-list duo Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp. What more do you need to get you into theaters other than Depp in a number of great suits, smoking cigarettes and looking cool all around Venice? Yes, plot helps but at least we know he’s got the acting chops to make just about anything interesting to watch. Sony sent us over some clips about him talking about making the film, working with Oscar winning writer/director Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck (watch interview) and why him and Jolie weren’t even allowed to talk on set without getting a ridiculous headline. It’s hard being amazing…
The story of the film centers on an American Tourist (Depp) visiting Italy to mend a broken heart. Elise (Jolie) is an extraordinary woman who deliberately crosses his path. Against the breathtaking backdrop of Venice, Frank pursues a potential romance but soon finds himself the pursued as he and Elise are caught in a whirlwind of intrigue and danger.
The Tourist hits theaters on December 10th.
