So, do you think this is the movie that’s going to help set Johnny Depp‘s career back on track?
The trailer really wants you to think so. Mortdecai stars Johnny Depp as an art dealer who is searching ”for a stolen painting that’s reportedly linked to a lost bank account filled with Nazi gold.” It’s the movie that he got all blonde for.
Whoever cut the trailer did a pretty good job, but as others have pointed out, it looks like one of those “good trailer, bad movie” deals.
Although it is possible that we’ll all be surprised and the movie will be wonderful and remind us why Johnny Depp is awesome. I usually like it when he does weird characters (see: Edward Scissorhands, Ed Wood, Pirates of the Caribbean).
Plus, Ewan McGregor and Jeff Goldblum are in it. They tend to make everything better. But, Gwyneth Paltrow is also in it, so…there’s that. Check out the trailer above and tell us what you think of it in the comments below. Love? Hate? Meh?
