Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp play 'Tourist': Preview review trailer

September 15, 2010 | 11:17 am

Johnny-depp-angelina-jolie-the-tourist-600x250-wdIt was only a few months ago that "The Tourist" began filming in Europe, when fans of Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp became so rabid that production was forced to temporarily shut down while autograph-seekers were warded off. 

We can only imagine how excited those admirers are now that an intriguing trailer for the movie -- out in December -- has been released. In the film, Depp plays an American tourist who becomes interested in an Interpol agent (Jolie). She's on a search to track down a criminal with whom she was once romantically involved.

The film looks beautiful -- and not only because of its attractive stars. Set in Paris and Venice, Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck's film shows off Europe's picturesque canals and countryside to good effect.

You can tell from the moment Jolie's spy gives Depp's character the eye that her bravado will work well in a part in which she's both seductress and secret agent. But we're more drawn to Depp here -- the aloof-yet-charming shtick is right up his alley.

"You look ravenous," he tells Jolie's character at one point.

"Do you mean ravishing?" she responds, cunningly.

The two are a great match -- so we're optimistic that their performances can elevate the movie above the sea of other crime thrillers with guy-falls-for-spy plot lines we've seen in recent years.

For me the movie will do very good,it's a comedy,and it's great for johnny,he likes the humour,I wish the best ,we all the fans love him

I love Johnny in everything he does. I just don't see him pairing with Angelina well. Ofcourse she's GORGEOUS to look at but that's about it. I wish they had chosen a female lead that's beautiful but also has more range and acting ability........

I'm interested in seeing this film, but for Depp, not Jolie.
Jolie looks like one of those souvineer bells from Knotts Berry Farm from the 1970s that were shaped like elegant ladies of the early 1900s. I don't buy her as a Spy...Spys blend in...her makeup and clothing are way too orchestrated to be taken seriously. She has become a parody of "class and sophistication."

I love angelina jolie, she is very beautiful women for me and im her number 1 fan Ilove this movie

Hardcore movie!!!... From start to finish, it's really worth watching! super intense and action filled!! great? stunts! great movie!!
