In the first quarter of the year, movie theaters are known to have a large number snore inducing titles. Furthermore, these “dump months” are rife with films that studios have very little faith in. Well, that’s not always the case and to prove it today we have a glimpse of a Johnny Depp vehicle that might not only abate but quell the Winter doldrums. Fingers crossed anyway as this looks hilarious!
In the film, Depp (who looks to have just as much fun as Jack Sparrow only with better looking facial hair), plays debonair art dealer and part time rogue Charlie Mortdecai. Armed with his good looks and special charm, Mortdecai will juggle some angry Russians, the British Mi5, his impossibly leggy wife, an international terrorist and more in this mad cap adventure. Check out the teaser trailer which originally dropped on iTunes today…
