Tickets will go on sale 6/24/12 @ 10am. If you haven't seen him, you should...cuz..he's good :D See other tour dates here.

This promises to be good! It stars Jeremy Renner, Rachel Weisz and my main man Edward Norton among some other greats. I already have a soft spot for good espionage/action movies, so needless to say- I will definitely be checking this one out! Have a look.
