'The Tourist': Johnny Depp, meet Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp have never appeared in a movie together. That all changes with "The Tourist," the spy thriller/romance in which Jolie seduces Depp, but for reasons that are not based purely on physical attraction. The trailer is now circulating online and provides our first glimpse of what director Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck has described as "incredible chemistry" between the two stars. It's a bit difficult to assess that chemistry in the trailer, though; many of the scenes feature close-ups of an impossibly sultry Jolie, or Depp seeming confused and/or panic-stricken. Still, the notion of Edward Scissorhands and Lara Croft, together at last, is pretty intriguing. Take a look and share your reaction to this cinematic pairing -- to be seen in December on the big screen -- in our comments section....

A look at the 'Hereafter' trailer

A film about a psychic, that focuses on the afterlife and features Bryce Dallas Howard in a supporting role. I must be talking about an M. Night Shyamalan movie, right? Wrong. Actually, "Hereafter" -- whose trailer recently debuted online -- was directed by Clint Eastwood, stars Matt Damon and looks like it has potential, despite at least one special effect that a couple of YouTube commenters rather uncharitably compared to "2012." But take a look and decide for yourself. The films opens Oct. 22 (just in time for Halloween) and I can promise this much: unlike this Friday's "Devil," this one did not spring from the mind of Mr. Shyamalan....
