Normally, we don’t put up a post just to feature a poster. But today, we got our hands on something that was too good not to share. Lionsgate certainly knows what kind of movie Mortdecai is, and they are having some real fun with the marketing that’s for sure. The film has an amazing cast, but if you ever found yourself asking, “what would those fine thespians look like were they to sport Johnny Depp’s mustache?, then today is the day you get your answer.
Aside from the joke, there’s something genuinely funny about the film (well from the trailer at least). Mordecai (starring Johnny Depp) seems like the best Rowan Atkinson movie not starring Rowan Atkinson, but it looks like Depp can really make this his own. So, until we get another hilarious looking trailer, have a look at the four character posters that are, ahem, quite well groomed…
Juggling some angry Russians, the British Mi5, his impossibly leggy wife and an international terrorist, debonair art dealer and part time rogue Charlie Mortdecai (Johnny Depp) must traverse the globe armed only with his good looks and special charm in a race to recover a stolen painting rumored to contain the code 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 early next year on February 6th, 2015.
