Upcoming Spy DVDs: The Tourist

DVD Active reports that Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will release The Tourist on DVD, Blu-ray and Blu-ray/DVD Comboon March 22nd. Extras on the DVD will include a commentary with director Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, the featurettes "A Gala Affair" and "Bringing Glamour Back" and an outtake reel. The really interesting sounding featurettes, unfortunately, are reserved exclusively for the Blu-ray releases, which will include all that other stuff as well as the additional featurettes "Canal Chats," "Action in Venice" and "Tourist Destination - Travel the Canals of Venice." Venice was the real star of the movie (well, excepting Timothy Dalton, that is, who's the real star of anything he's in), so it's a pity you have to own a Blu-ray player to learn more about it. Retail is $28.95 for the DVD, $34.95 for the BDand $38.96 for the combo, but of course they're all available to pre-order much cheaper than that on Amazon and other sites.

"Bringing Glamour Back". Unfortunately, that is all they brought back. Pretty, but empty.

A shame with the cast and with Venice!
