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.
Though 'The Lone Ranger' is still in theaters, with a less than $50 million five-day opening, the film is already in contention for one of the year's biggest misfires, if not outright failures. That Johnny Depp is currently lining up a new project means one of two things: He's rethinking what roles he should play or he taking big paydays while they're still around. That next project? 'Mortdecai.'
