A glamorous ‘Tourist’ camp

Angelina Jolie, Johnny Depp hit premiere for thriller

Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp brought their movie-star glamour to the Ziegfeld and then the vaulted Gotham Hall for the preem of Sony’s “The Tourist” on Monday.

That glam appeal is what attracted helmer Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck to the pic: “I saw in this the possibility to make the kind of film that originally charged up the word ‘Hollywood’ with so much magic.”

On the first two days of the shoot in Venice, producer Graham King watched a “fleet of paparazzi” tail the stars’ boats along the Grand Canal. “That was the moment when I said, ‘Oh my God, we have the two biggest stars in the world.'”

Depp earned high praise from von Donnersmarck, who called the thesp a “brilliant improviser. Unfortunately, if I left even one of his improvisations in, we would have ended up with an NC-17 rating.”

Sounds like DVD bonus material to us.
