Sony Pictures confirmed today that The Tourist will be released in the US on December 10, 2010.

Against the breathtaking backdrop of Venice, Frank pursues a potential romance but soon finds himself the pursued as he and Elise are caught in a whirlwind of intrigue and danger.
Hopefully, now that a release date has officially been confirmed, we should be treated to a poster and trailer within the next few weeks, giving us more of an insight into The Tourist.
The news comes on the same day as Sony Pictures moved Underworld 4 to January 20, 2012 and added Anonymous to their slate (due to be released on March 25, 2011).
