‘Black Mass’ Trailer: Johnny Depp Reminds You He’s a Great Actor

EDIT

It wasn't long ago that Johnny Depp, a highly respected actor, starred in the first Pirates of the Caribbean and became a huge A-list star. But, instead of taking his newfound fame (and wealth) and using that to star in some more challenging roles, he’s starred in a bunch of Pirates sequels, Tim Burton movies and Mortdecai. Had Johnny Depp lost his touch?, people asked. If this new Black Mass trailer is to be believed, no. Absolutely not.

Last night at CinemaCon, attendees got a sneak peek at Black Mass, the highly-anticipated new film from director Scott Cooper, which tells the story of notorious criminal Whitey Bulger. Johnny Depp plays the role of Bulger, trading in his silly hats for a bald cap in the new crime drama, which certainly looks like a step in the right direction for the actor.

Between Johnny Depp suffering an injury and forcing production on Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales to shut down for a month and then later supposedly skipping his flight back to the set after his injury healed, all of the recent chatter surrounding the latest Captain Jack Sparrow adventure has been weird and negative. In a reveal that surely has absolutely nothing to do with all of the recent rumor-mongering, producer Jerry Bruckheimer has revealed our first look at Depp in the film.

‘Mortdecai’ Is Being Cut Down to a PG-13 Rating For VOD

In year already filled with high-profile box-office flops, Mortdecai is definitely in the running for the most spectacular of the bunch, challenged only by Jupiter Ascending. If we were to count every reason this Johnny Depp comedy bombed with critics and audiences, we’d need a few hands, but we can boil it down to one key factor: It looked about as obnoxious as movies can get. But Lionsgate seems to think that the film’s R-rating may have been to blame, hence their unusual decision to recut the film into a family-friendly PG-13 version for its VOD release.

After years of false starts and delays, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales finally began filming in Australia yesterday. And that’s not a moment too soon for the franchise’s star, Johnny Depp, who hasn’t headlined a hit since 2011’s Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. So, this brings up two important questions. First, will a fifth Captain Jack Sparrow adventure resuscitate Depp in a post-Mortdecai world? Secondly, can new directors Espen Sandberg and Joachim Rønning inject new life into a series that ran out of steam two movies ago?

The ‘Birdman’ Alternate Ending Featured Johnny Depp and Was Way More Strange

The ending of Alejandro González Iñárritu’s ‘Birdman’ is already pretty dark and a bit surreal—the entire film, including and especially the ending, have a righteously pessimistic view of Hollywood and stardom as Michael Keaton’s character completes his arc in exceedingly cynical fashion…well, maybe. It depends on how you interpret the ending. But apparently that wild ending could have been even more strange, and it would have included Johnny Depp.

Actors! They're weird! Johnny Depp may be one of Hollywood's brightest stars, but that doesn't mean he's immune to the weirdness of artistry -- in fact, Depp has kind of gone whole hog on this being "out there" thing, and it's very much a part of his process as an actor. Considering his box office cache and personal success, yeah, it's worked for him.

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

EDIT

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.

One might argue all movie stars are overpaid in comparison to essential professions like teachers or first responders, but in the grand scheme of things they earn their keep; their work generates absurd amounts of money, and for that work they are in turn paid slightly less absurd amounts of money.
