Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie taking “Tourist” to December

By Sean O’Connell Could “The Tourist” be planning a last-minute trip to the Academy Awards?

That’s the first thing I thought of when I learned the Johnny Depp-Angelina Jolie had circled Dec. 10 as its release date. Directed by Florian Henckel Von Donnersmarck (“The Lives of Others”), “Tourist” is a romantic spy drama about an American (Depp) who enters into an affair with an international spy (Jolie). What sounds like a classic Hitchcock scenario is actually lifted from a 2005 French film titled “Anthony Zimmer.”

Though the release date certainly suggests an Oscar hopeful – late dates mean pictures stay fresh in Academy voters’ minds – The Playlist writes that those who believe this “haven’t read the script,” which they describe as “enjoyable” but “fluffy” and “escapist entertainment” that compares to Robert Downey Jr. in “Sherlock Holmes.”

Perhaps that means the Golden Globes will bite on Depp and Jolie for nods so that they can add glamour to the HFPA’s annual celebration.

    Not an Oscar contender. They moved it because Depp has too many movies coming out together. Rango in March, Pirates in May. Originally Rum Diary was early in the year also but that is being pushed out and Tourist pulled in.
