New U.K. Trailer for MORTDECAI

Johnny Depp 2015 Comedy

A new Mortdecai international trailer reintroduces Johnny Depp as British spy Charlie Mortdecai, a robustly mustachioed purveyor of fine art aka @PartTimeRogue on Twitter.

Because it’s the new rogue comedy quite fitting for an overly affectionate Depp’s acting. The ensemble cast also includes Gwyneth Paltrow, Ewan McGregor, Paul Bettany, Olivia Munn, Aubrey Plaza, Oliver Platt, and Jeff Goldblum. Directed by David Koepp (Premium Rush), Mortdecai is set for release on January 23rd in the States.

If you missed this kind of humor since Peter SellersPink Panther, Christmas Eve is a time to rejoice with this one, narrated by Stephen Fry even though he’s not in the movie.

Actually, Depp is a Cluseau rip off. I’m rather looking forward to the prospect of his dramatic turn in next year’s Whitey Bulger drama Black Mass.

Juggling some angry Russians, the British Mi5, his impossibly leggy wife and an international terrorist, debonair art dealer and part time rogue Charlie Mortdecai (Johnny Depp) must traverse the globe armed only with his good looks and special charm in a race to recover a stolen painting rumored to contain the code to a lost bank account filled with Nazi gold.
