- Story Text: Angelina Jolie, joined by Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp, arrive for the premiere of "The Tourist" in Madrid.
Hollywood stars Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp drove fans crazy on Thursday (December 16) in Madrid at the premiere of the action thriller "The Tourist".
Jolie, dressed in a black, elegant and shinny dress was joined by Brad Pitt, and they patiently signed autographs for their excited fans on the red carpet before posing for media.
The Oscar-winning actress and Depp had never met before making the film together, but they have led "The Tourist" to three Golden Globe nominations: Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Actress.
The action romance thriller is the first foray into Hollywood for Oscar-winning filmmaker Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, who came to prominence four years ago scooping an Oscar for best foreign film with "The Lives of Others."
Based loosely on French movie "Anthony Zimmer," the German director and screenwriter's Hollywood entry recalls Tinseltown's older traditions with beautiful sets, an elegant wardrobe and quirky dialogue, while keeping a European style.
Depp's character is a nerdy mathematics teacher who gets embroiled while on holiday in a web of deceit spun by Jolie's vulnerable femme fatale and chased by a dogged English detective played by "Da Vinci Code" bad guy Paul Bettany.
Adding to the classy flavor, Timothy Dalton, best known for playing suave secret agent James Bond in the late 1980s, makes a cameo appearance as a sort of secret service chief guiding an increasingly forlorn Bettany.
