Up and Coming Movies...
What they say..
Johnny Depp stars as an American tourist whose playful dalliance with a stranger leads to a web of intrigue, romance and danger in The Tourist. During an impromptu trip to Europe to mend a broken heart, Frank (Depp) unexpectedly finds himself in a flirtatious encounter with Elise (Angelina Jolie), an extraordinary woman who deliberately crosses his path. Against the breathtaking backdrop of Paris and Venice, their whirlwind romance quickly evolves as they find themselves unwittingly thrust into a deadly game of cat and mouse.
Directed by Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, and written by Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck and Christopher McQuarrie and Julian Fellowes, The Tourist is a GK Films presentation in association with Spyglass. The film is produced by Graham King, Tim Headington, Roger Birnbaum, Gary Barber and Jonathan Glickman. Studio Canal is also a partner on the production.
What i say..
It's nice to still see the studios bringing out movies that are relying on its stars rather than a gimmick *cough*3D*cough* or it being some kind of franchise/reboot etc etc.. The trailer has some smart dialogue to go with the steaming lead couple, so should be a stand out European thriller, who knows?
The Tourist is released in cinemas on 10th December 2010
