January and February get a bad rap for being the two months when movie studios quietly release films they have little faith in. Well, as you’ll see with Kevin Macdonald’s upcoming Black Sea, the top of the year is not an all out schlockfest. There are some quality gems to be found and, from the looks of the trailers, we’re really hoping that Mortdecai is one of those diamonds in the rough.
The film opens next week (moved from the previously announced February date) and we have a new featurette to help celebrate its release. Check out the behind-the-scenes video with the all-star cast, and see what Johnny Depp and company have to say about the larger-than-life Charlie Mortdecai.
Art dealer Charles Mortdecai searches for a stolen painting that’s reportedly linked to a lost bank account filled with Nazi gold.
Starring Johnny Depp, Gwyneth Paltrow, Ewan McGregor, Olivia Munn, Jeff Goldblum, and Paul Bettany, director David Koepp and Lionsgate have set Mortdecai for release everywhere on January 23rd, 2015.
