Directed by Oscar winner Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck ( The Lives of Others) the thriller co-stars Paul Bettany ( Iron Man 2) and Timothy Dalton ( Toy Story 3).

The footage follows the couple from a meeting on a train through Venice and Paris featuring a seductive Jolie as a mysterious Interpol agent who intentionally crosses an innocent man's path as a diversion.

Depp portrays an unusually vulnerable character, an American tourist in Europe mending a broken heart.

Scene excerpts reveal an intriguing web of mistaken identity, chases and amusing moments.

The trailer rolls out this weekend in cinemas with The Tourist hitting US theaters December 11.

Depp was recently named Hollywood's highest-paid actor by Forbes magazine, for earning $50 million over the last year for the film as well as Alice in Wonderland and Pirates of the Caribbean.
