Johnny Depp

The latest trailer from love him or hate him director Kevin Smith has arrived. Smith has always been rather polarizing to audiences but his latest movie Yoga Hosers looks to stretch even the staunchest fans. It stars Smith’s daughter Harley Quinn, along with Lily Rose Depp, Johnny Depp’s daughter, as two convenience store clerks. Before you get excited about a throwback to the days of Dante and Randall, be advised – there’s a foot tall Nazi bratwurst (played by Smith himself) involved. Clerks 2.0 this is not. Still with a PG-13 rating subversive adult commentary on the world is not what Smith was intending. Yoga Hosers seems to be him having fun, the question remains do the rest of want to join in the fun? (more…)

Hey, remember when Alice in Wonderland made a billion dollars at the box office? The year 2010 were simpler days as Alice, riding on the 3-D coattails of Avatar just needed to be in that third dimension to make money, and that’s all the movie seemed to have going for it. It’s interesting considering the recent discussion of Avatar’s culture relevance, or lack thereof, that the movie that followed in its footsteps so closely seems all but forgotten in the conversation. A billion dollars doesn’t mean what you used to, but it’s siren song is hard shake. Thus we now have Alice Through the Looking Glass, a logical follow-up to Wonderland if anything that happened here could be called logical.  (more…)

Alice Through the Looking Glass opens later this month, so it would make sense that if you were to find yourself wandering around Disneyland in Anaheim, CA, you might see some promotion for the film. You know, like a poster display. Now imagine if the poster started looking back. And talking to you. That’s what some lucky people encountered in their recent visit to Disneyland, as what looked like a poster of Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter turned out to actually be Johnny Depp dressed in full Mad Hatter garb, ready and willing to interact with fans to their mutual delight. And yes, the whole thing was captured on video. (more…)

One of Kevin Smith‘s recent slew of bizarre projects, Yoga Hosers is the second in Smith’s True North horror comedy trilogy. It appears betweern 2014’s Tusk and the bluntly titled Moose Jaws, which is due to begin shooting in the summer time of this year. The movie has already premiered at the Sundance Film Festival of January 2016 and now has an official release date for broader distribution, as the debut piece of new production company Invincible Pictures.

The latest trailer for Johnny Depp‘s return to the land of wonder in Alice Through the Looking Glass took a Guardians of the Galaxy musical cue and set the whole thing to Pink‘s incredible take on Airplane‘s classically trippy song, Go Ask Alice. The new trailer first made its debut during a Facebook Live chat with director James Bobin and Johnny Depp. Check it out after the jump. (more…)

It’s a well-known fact of movie lore that when Johnny Depp first portrayed Captain Jack Sparrow in 2003’s Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, he modeled his performance on Rolling Stone guitarist Keith Richards. Richards himself would repay the compliment a few years later appearing as Sparrow’s father Captain Teague, the Keeper of the Code, in At World’s End and On Stranger Tides, the third and fourth Pirates movie. So with that tangential connection between a major Disney franchise and the British Invasion of the 1960s, we’ve learned today that one of the surviving Beatles will be making his way to the Caribbean to play pirate with the cast of Dead Men Tell No Tales.

Johnny Depp will soon not be seen on screen as The Invisible Man, a new version of the classic H.G. Wells story that was first filmed way back in 1933. Forming part of a planned Universal Monsters Cinematic Universe (UMCU?) along with the already announced Tom Cruise starrer The Mummy, due June 2017, and a future Bride of Frankenstein for which Angelina Jolie is being courted, it marks a big gamble by the Hollywood studio.

Johnny Depp is Hatter in ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS.

O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay! Fans of Tim Burton‘s 2010 film Alice in Wonderland should be chortling in their joy at all the news coming about the sequel, Alice Through the Looking Glass. Based off of Lewis Carroll‘s Through the Looking-Glass, which was itself a sequel to his earlier Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Alice Through the Looking Glass promises to deliver even more madcap antics and zany characters than its predecessor. Returning for more adventures in Wonderland are Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, Stephen Fry, Michael Sheen, and Alan Rickman, in what would prove to be his final role. Watch now below as Walt Disney Pictures has just released a new TV spot for the film!

AliceThroughTheLookingGlass2

The star-studded sequel to Tim Burton‘s Alice in Wonderland, Alice Through The Looking Glass has released its first full trailer and it is as visually beautiful as one would expect from a Tim Burton production. Director James Bobin certainly has maintained that Burton style of madness in set design.  Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, and Helena Bonham Carter are back to reprise their roles with the addition of Sacha Baron Cohen as the movie’s more sinister character of Underland.

It’s not due in theaters for two more years, but we’re already being shown that life for Jack Sparrow Captain Jack Sparrow hasn’t changed much in the upcoming fifth edition of the Pirates of the Caribbean series, Dead Men Tell No Tales. The previous film, On Stranger Tides, made serious bank at the box office, so Disney pushed on with a chapter five even though I doubt you can find anyone who can recount with any reliability the plot of Jack Sparrow’s last adventure. Of course, it’s not like it matters because money talks and Pirates 5 is currently in production, which brings us to the below photo of Johnny Depp back in Captain Jack form, and getting into trouble with fellow pirates (as always).
