It's been three years since ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides’ was unleashed upon an unsuspecting populace, convincing even the most die hard fans of Disney's lucrative franchise that Captain Jack Sparrow needed to take a break. Maybe forever. And yet, these past years have been filled with rumors and casting and almost-casting for ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.’ Like it or not, this film is coming and now it has the young up-and-comer Brenton Thwaites in its drunken, slurred, overlong clutches.

So this is why we don't see Johnny Depp on stage very often (ever?) at awards shows. Last night at the Hollywood Film Awards, Depp introduced the documentary ‘Supermensch,’ about legendary talent manager Shep Gordon, and immediately made it pretty clear that he was not sober-minded. “That's the weirdest microphone I've ever seen in my life,” he slurs—except, you know, it's just a regular microphone.

'Mortdecai' Trailer: Johnny Depp, Johnny Depp's Moustache, and Something About an Art Heist

The new 'Mortdecai' trailer has all of the necessary elements to make us write it off completely: Johnny Depp doing a dumb voice, Johnny Depp with a dumb moustache, Johnny Depp wearing at least two stupid hats and well, lets be honest here, the mere presence of Johnny Depp in a 2014 movie. And yet, there's something about this movie that intrigues us and grabs our attention, despite our better judgment.

The first 'Into the Woods' trailer was strangely lacking in singing, which was an odd way to sell a movie based on one of the most beloved of all modern musicals. Thankfully, Disney has course corrected with trailer number two, which actually lets us see and hear the ensemble cast performing Stephen Sondhiem's iconic songs. It's an improvement by default.

When we saw the initial teaser for Disney's 'Into the Woods' movie, the thing that was missing from our first peek at the upcoming musical was the actual, you know, musical part. But thanks to this new featurette on the film, we can hear bits and pieces of the songs from the adaptation of the classic musical, from the mouths of stars like Meryl Streep and Anna Kendrick.

Johnny Depp has worn many hats . Not in the artistic sense -- though he's also written and directed a film, and produced a handful of others, and has even been known to sing on command. No, we mean in the literal sense. The man has literally worn many dumb hats. His fondness for hats (on-screen, at least) can be traced as far back as '21 Jump Street,' and ever since then he's been insistent on making headwear some sort of affectation or statement or "his thing." It's not an exaggeration, either. Just when you think you've found a film in which Johnny Depp does not wear a hat ... boom, he sneaks one in on you. Here, we've collected and ranked Johnny Depp's dumb hats from his on-screen appearances, ranked in order from least dumb to the absolute dumbest. (To include the many dumb hats he wears off-screen would be too exhaustive.)

Following this morning's first look at Johnny Depp's Big Bad Wolf and his Big Dumb Hat from the upcoming musical film 'Into the Woods,' Entertainment Weekly has released even more official photos -- this time featuring more of Anna Kendrick's Cinderella and Chris Pine's Prince Charming, and less Big Bad Wolf. Sorry, silly hat fans.

The first 'Into the Woods' trailer left many people scratching their heads because it featured no singing for what is ostensibly a musical and it kept Johnny Depp, one of the biggest names in the cast, completely offscreen. However, Depp's Big Bad Wolf has made the cover of Entertainment Weekly (along with the rest of the ensemble cast), giving us our first look at Disney's favorite leading man in his latest wacky costume.

Shocker! Javier Bardem is up for another villain role! After recently portraying Bond baddie Silva in 'Skyfall,' another major franchise wants him play its bad guy -- 'Pirates of the Caribbean 5.' He must have the face for it or something.

'Mortdecai' Trailer: Johnny Depp, and This Time He Has a Wacky Mustache!

EDIT

Although the trailer doesn't sell any of the plot of 'Mortdecai,' it does sell Johnny Depp's newest weird character: a snobby art dealer who appears debonair but is actually a bit of a bumbling oaf. Depp doesn't wear any silly hats this time around, but he does have a silly mustache and a wacky accent, so everything balances out in the end.
