New Release: The Tourist DVD and Blu-ray

The Tourist movie sceneAngelina Jolie’s second action movie from 2010 (after her Russian spy turn in Salt), The Tourist bowed on DVD and Blu-ray on March 22, 2011, from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

Co-starring Johnny Depp (Alice in Wonderland), The Tourist follows Depp’s Frank, an American tourist visiting Italy who meets Elise (Jolie) on a train unknowing that she has chosen him to throw off the authorities. After pretending he’s her lover, Elise and Frank get into hot water as they must evade the police (Paul Bettany of Creation and Timothy Dalton of TV’s Chuck) and the mobster (Steven Berkoff, 44 Inch Chest) who thinks her lover stole his money.

Despite headlined by Jolie and Depp, the big-budget thriller grossed only $65.9 million, not a bad take, but smaller than, say, Jolie’s most recent action films Salt ($118 million) and Wanted ($134 million). Still, the PG-13 The Tourist should find a decent audience in the home market.

The movie was priced at $28.95 on DVD, at $34.95 for a single Blu-ray and $38.96 for a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack.

The DVD includes these special features:

  • director’s commentary
  • featurette “A Gala Affair”
  • featurette “Bringing Glamour Back”
  • and outtakes.

Both Blu-ray versions contain those plus:

  • featurette “Canal Chats”
  • featurette “Action in Venice”
  • and featurette “Tourist Destination–Travel the Canals of Venice.”
