Despite everything, The Tourist grosses over $200 million dollars overseas

Pin it

Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie

The Tourist was a bad movie. I know it, you know it, your great-aunt who still uses AOL for Windows ME knows it. But, apparently the rest of the world does not. While only grossing sixty-seven million here, it grossed over $200 million internationally. Which seems absurd.

Now, those numbers are neither record-breaking nor very impressive. By comparison, some of Depp's recent work pulls in two or three times that amount. But we're talking about The Tourist. Could it really be that Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie are that famous? I know Depp is popular overseas and Angelina's hotness translates everywhere, but aren't Europeans supposed to be renowned for their taste?

My only desperate hope is that the international box-office cash this movie is making isn't enough for a sequel. I doubt it, but I've been wrong thousands of times. They keep making Saw, Fast & Furious, and Scream movies, after all. So, when The Tourist 4 drops, remember that I warned you.
