The first trailer for The Tourist, starring Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp, is now online and ready for your scrutiny.
The film was helmed by German Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, who won many awards for his acclaimed film The Lives of Others. With The Tourist, Donnersmarck looks to be making his big splash in Hollywood, with two of the biggest A-list stars on the planet helping him do it.
If you don't know much about The Tourist, check out a synopsis for the movie below - BE WARNED, the synopsis has certain SPOILERS that aren't necessarily revealed in this first trailer (but they're not exactly secrets either):
The Tourist is a remake of the 2005 French thriller "Anthony Zimmer." The thriller concerns an American tourist (Johnny Depp) who finds his life in danger when a female Interpol agent (Angelina Jolie) uses him as a dupe to flush out an elusive criminal with whom she once had an affair.

OK, so I've got to say this first trailer makes this film seem like a retread of so many other films I've already seen before (and that's ignoring the fact that it's a remake). Jolie seems to be reprising the same role she played this past summer in Salt, while Depp's wide-eyed antics and humor certainly have a hint of Captain Jack Sparrow.
But let's be honest: this film has two of the biggest stars in the world, gorgeous European set pieces, action, mystery, and a hefty dose of sex appeal...it's not exactly going to have a hard time attracting an audience. All I'm saying is that my parents will probably be out to the theater to catch this long before I will.
The Tourist will be in theaters on December 10th. Read more about it and many other movies coming out in the latter half of this year in our 2010 Fall Movie Preview.
