First Look at Johnny Depp in ‘Mortdecai’ [WATCH VIDEO]

The man who literally becomes the character bestowed upon him, Johnny Depp showcases another different side of his acting prowess in Lionsgate’s recently released teaser of “Mortdecai.” Read on to learn more about Johnny Depp’s new role.

You’ve seen him embody the character of Captain Jack Sparrow in the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise, witnessed him play a traditional vampire in the “Dark Shadows,” adored him when he became the whimsical Mad Hatter in “Alice in the Wonderland” and been bewildered by his eccentric depiction of Tonto in “The Lone Ranger.” Adding into his growing list of character portrayals, you will now take him up as an elegant British man who lacks better judgment – to put it simply, a comical dimwit, in the trailer of Lionsgate’s “Mortdecai.”

A minute and a half long trailer features shots that greatly suggest how powerfully prominent and how “cleverly moronic” Charlie Mortdecai (Depp) is. Basing it on Hollywood Reporter, Depp is going reasonably exaggerated in the way his role is on this film.

Complete with the mustache and the English attitude, you’ll somehow detect how he channels the likes of Leslie Philips or Paul F. Tompkins in his character’s image. On the other hand,  he maintains the classy demeanor despite the many ridiculous circumstances going about in his way, which included paying a visit to “a terribly vulgar place called Los Angeles.”

The film that was based from Kyril Bonfiglioli’s book series, “The Mortdecai” Trilogy.” “Mortdecai” is a story centered on a man named Charlie Mortdecai, a well known English debonair art curator who does some sideline rogue work.

In his efforts of hiding away is another job, he gets caught up in a struggle with angry Russians, the British MI5, his freakishly long – legged wife and worldly known criminal as he tries to find the location of  a unique painting. It was rumored to contain the proper codes to unlock a back ridden place that hid Nazi gold.

Screen Rant, on the other hand, believed it to be an average adventure type that bears the element of freshness into the cinematic podium.

In the film he is accompanied by a number of well-known stars like Olivia Munn (“The Newsroom“), Gwyneth Paltrow (“Iron Man 3“), Ewan McGregor (“Jack the Giant Slayer“), Jeff Goldblum (“The Grand Budapest Hotel“), Paul Bettany (“Transcendence“), Aubrey Plaza (“Parks and Recreation”) and so much more.

The film “Mortdecai” starring Johnny Depp is set to open on February 6, 2015.

That’s how much excitement we’ll have to swallow before we get to witness another well-played character by Johnny Depp in the 2015 movie, “Mortdecai.” Continue to visit Movie News Guide (MNG) for the latest updates in the entertainment world.
