Still currently in filming, here’s a first look at Optimum Releasing’s The Tourist, starring two of Hollywood’s hottest stars, Mr Depp and Mrs Jolie. Whilst I’m not entirely sure the synopsis sells it in as a ‘climb over a dead badger to see’ title, these two could sit in a darkened room and chat about inflation for 2 hours and I’d probably still give it a go. It’s also directed by Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck who clearly has the finest name in the history of names. Sold!
The Tourist revolves around Frank (Depp), an American tourist 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.
