Take a Trip With The Tourist on Blu-ray

I remember seeing this film theatrically and for some strange reason I had a burning desire to take a spur of the moment trip to Italy.  The film’s scenery really sold me on the fascination.  But anyway, what I am really here to tell you all about is the arrival of The Tourist on Blu-ray this March.  The $205 million worldwide box office hit starring Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp debuts on Blu-ray March 22nd.  Check out the full press release from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and pre-order your Blu-ray today!

ONE HECK OF A PROMOTER!!! Also a Dreamer, Producer, Agent of Love, Film Lover, Writer of Screenplays and a Devoted Apostle to all things Ford Mustangs (the real ones with V8's!). Some of my favorite films include FIGHT CLUB, MOULIN ROUGE, THE DARK KNIGHT, STAR WARS alongside television shows such as SEINFELD, 24, SANFORD & SON and even the often loathed in the geek community BIG BANG THEORY. Outside of my three lives I live I also enjoy spending time with my girlfriend and our three girls (of the furry kind).
