The actor and his wife Amber Heard are accused of not declaring their two Yorkshire terriers to customs officials when they flew into Queensland last month - and Australian quarantine authorities have now ordered Depp to fly the pooches out of the country by Saturday or they will be put down.

With the recent trailer release for 'Black Mass', it's clear to see why the world fell in love with Johnny Depp. A short clip within the trailer perfectly demonstrates the veteran actor's ability to switch at will between fun-loving and friendly, to nightmarishly monstrous, in a great acting showcase. And that creepy make-up job certainly helps.

In recent years, Johnny Depp has received a critical savaging, specifically for films like 'The Lone Ranger' and 'Transcendence', but this triumphant return to form may be just what he needs before launching into an 'Alice in Wonderland' sequel, and a fifth 'Pirates of the Caribbean' film.

Black Mass - First Look Trailer


Sometimes, the greatest hiding place is in plain sight. For twelve years from the mid-1990s, he was the FBI's second most wanted fugitive, behind Osama Bin Laden. Throughout the 1970s, he was an FBI informant, revealing information to bring down an Italian American crime family, and he was the brother of a US senator. But really, his informant years were to stop another family from invading his own turf. Whitey Bulger (Johnny Depp) was one of the most brutal and violent criminals in Boston, being the secret puppet master behind one of the most dangerous crime families in history.

Kim Kardashian's debuts her latest fashion move, sporting a head of significantly shorter but freshly dyed blonde locks as she spends quality time with her husband Kanye West in France during Paris Fashion Week. It's a style that's been dividing opinion this week.

Kim may have shocked us in skin-tight pink Latex back in February, but the reality star hasn't stopped there. Her latest daring venture has been to bleach her much envied brunette hair - as well as chop half of it off. It'll definitely take some getting used to but we think the curvy star has proved she can just about pull off anything; perhaps she was inspired by her famous mermaid Halloween costume (which people are still talking about) from 2012, where her blonde curls drew many eyes on her.

Johnny Depp re-visits his musical roots in Alice Cooper's formation of supergroup The Hollywood Vampires, named after his legendary drinking club of the same name. Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry will also join the line-up. It's no secret that the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' star and Hollywood heartthrob has a foot in the music industry, it being a big part of his childhood and teenage years. But now he's solidifying that part of his personality by joining a new band: The Hollywood Vampires, alongside Alice Cooper and Joe Perry.

The Hollywood Vampires first came about in the 1970s and, while members happened to be some of the biggest rockstars in the world at the time, it was formed as drinking club rather than a band, where members were enlisted on whether or not they could drink the other members under the table. Among them were former Beatles John Lennon and Ringo Starr, as well as Keith Moon, Harry Nilsson and Bernie Taupin.

Johnny Depp's 'Mortdecai' Is Ravaged By Critics


Johnny Depp

Even before the movie started rolling out in press screenings last week, the new Johnny Depp action comedy 'Mortdecai' was already rumoured to be a stinker. This is probably due to fatigue over Depp's continuous choice of quirky characters, something that started back in 2003 with his Oscar nominated turn in the first 'Pirates of the Caribbean' movie. 

Johnny Depp in 'Mortdecai'

But after relentlessly eccentric turns in four more 'Pirates' movies, plus the likes of 'Alice in Wonderland', 'The Lone Ranger' and 'Into the Woods', critics and audiences are getting tired of his increasingly cartoonish shtick. Indeed, 'Mortdecai' has been labelled by critics as a "psychotically unfunny" "vanity project", and "a career low" for Depp.

Mortdecai Review


Bad

Despite a superior cast and terrific-looking production values, this mystery romp is a misfire on every level. The only vaguely entertaining moments come in some snappy wordplay that's presumably all that remains of Kyril Bonfiglioli's beloved novel Don't Point That Thing at Me. Otherwise, the film feels clumsy and outdated, and even Johnny Depp's quirky schtick seems halfhearted. So even though it looks great and elicits a few giggles, it's such a mess that it's hard to imagine why anyone got involved.

Depp plays Lord Charlie Mortdecai, an art expert whose immaculately kept manor house is at risk of foreclosure due to unpaid taxes. So he leaps at the finder's fee when his old pal MI5 Inspector Martland (Ewan McGregor) asks him to investigate a murder linked to a missing Goya painting. The problem is that Martland still holds a torch for Charlie's wife Joanna (Gwyneth Paltrow), a brainy bombshell who launches her own investigation into the case. With his trusty manservant Jock (Paul Bettany) by his side, Charlie is taken to Moscow and Los Angeles in search of the Goya. And it all boils over in a chaotic encounter with a smirking art collector (Jeff Goldblum), his man-crazy daughter (Olivia Munn) and a sneaky killer (Jonny Pasvolsky).

Despite quite a lot of adult-aimed innuendo and violence, director David Koepp (Premium Rush) shoots the movie as if it's a hyperactive kiddie flick, all bright colours and shameless over-acting, with whooshing digitally animated transitions and a series of awkwardly staged car chases. None of this is remotely amusing. Even the constant double entendres are painfully overplayed, while the cartoonish Received Pronunciation accents put on by Depp, Paltrow and McGregor are more distracting than humorous. All of this leaves the characters impossible to engage with on any level; they aren't funny, endearing or even interesting.

'Mortdecai': Has Johnny Depp Already Made The Worst Film Of 2015?


Johnny Depp

We've been expecting these Mortdecai reviews for the past couple of days - but ultimately, we knew what was coming. It was the calm before the storm. And now we're in the grip of a full blown twister.

Into The Woods Review


Excellent

It's taken a long time for this stage musical to make it to the big screen, and while director Rob Marshall once again fails to give the story a sharp focus (see also Chicago and Nine), he at least lets the music and characters shine. Originally staged on Broadway in 1987, this musical by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine is a gleeful mash-up of fairy tales that continues on past the "happily ever after", eventually turning rather dark and emotional.

Once upon a time, there was a Baker and his Wife (James Corden and Emily Blunt) who learn that they can't have children because the Witch (Meryl Streep) next door has cursed them. She offers to break the spell if they collect a cow, a cape, a slipper and a lock of hair. Meanwhile, Jack (Daniel Huttlestone) annoys his mother (Tracey Ullman) by selling the family cow for a handful of "magic" beans; Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford) dodges a leery Wolf (Johnny Depp) following her through the woods; Cinderella (Anna Kendrick) sneaks to the festival to meet the Prince (Chris Pine) against the wishes of her nasty stepmum (Christine Baranski); and Rapunzel (Mackenzie Mauzy) defies her mother by letting her hair down for a Prince (Billy Magnussen). After knotting together, each plot strand resolves happily. Until the next day.

This is very much a story of two halves, with the sharp, snappy, hilarious first act contrasting strongly against the rather disturbingly grim and grisly second act, as everyone's story unravels to reveal each character's deep neediness. What makes this show so clever is the way it undermines the usual fairy-tale happiness of most stories, cautioning that this artifice is actually a problem for children. While the songs are all clever and thoroughly engaging, none of them is particularly hummable on first listen, but each is packed with witty wordplay and serious subtext that gets under the skin.

Mortdecai Trailer


When a priceless painting is stolen with the presumable intention of being sold to fund terrorist activities, England needs a hero. Enter, Mortdecai. Lord Charles Mortdecai (Johnny Depp) is a well-known and barely liked art dealer. He is also on the verge of bankruptcy. Well, 'on the verge' may be a little too generous. Mortdecai's extravagant lifestyle ensures that he is in desperate need of money - so much so, that he is willing to take on the job of tracking down and returning the painting. Or, perhaps, he'll steal it himself when he gets the chance. Either way, he'll have to get his hands on it first, and that is going to be far from easy. Or safe.

Is 'Into The Woods' Johnny Depp's Best Movie In 10 Years?


Johnny Depp

Ok, so Johnny Depp doesn't have a huge part in Into the Woods but it's worth mentioning that this enchanting musical drama effectively stops the rot for a man still considered the world's most in-demand actor. A modern twist on several of the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, the movie is garnering critical acclaim and should perform strongly at the box-office.

Anna KendrickAnna Kendrick stars in Into the Woods

Depp has a strong cast around him. The talented Anna Kendrick plays Cinderella, Lilla Crawford plays Little Red Riding Hood, Daniel Huttlestone plays Jack (and the Beanstalk), while James Corden and Emily Blunt form the basis of the original storyline, as a baker and his wife. Oh, and the world's greatest actress Meryl Streep plays the witch who puts a curse on the helpless couple.

Johnny Depp Rob Marshall Stephen Sondheim Meryl Streep Emily Blunt Anna Kendrick

There's an enormous buzz surrounding Rob Marshall and Stephen Sondheim's stage to film musical 'Into The Woods' with it's spectacular ensemble cast and vibrant setting, but even a super A lister like Johnny Depp couldn't help but feel a little nervous.

Johnny Depp is the wiley Wolf in 'Into The Woods'

Being surrounded by award-winning movie stars like Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt and Anna Kendrick is scary enough without the prospect of singing in front of them. While you'd think Johnny Depp would be used to it, having starred in Stephen Sondheim's Oscar winning film adaptation of 'Sweeney Todd' back in 2007 and appeared in a number of Hollywood blockbusters with the likes of Morgan Freeman, Helena Bonham Carter, Angelina Jolie, Christian Bale and John Malkovich. However, he admits he found his role as the Wolf 'daunting' even if it was a 'joy' to be involved. 'It's one of those moments that you realise you will never in your life have an opportunity like that again, as an actor or as a musician', he confesses, in the run-up to the film's release.

Along the way, they become intertwined in the stories of 'Jack and the Beanstalk', 'Little Red Riding Hood', 'Rapunzel', and 'Cinderella', in this original story based upon Grimm's classic fairy tales.

Johnny Depp Crashes And Blunders Through Hollywood Awards Speech - Real Or Fake?

Johnny Depp’s slow, but steady descent into irrelevance continues with his most recent appearance – a speech during the Hollywood awards on Saturday. Depp was there to present the Hollywood Documentary award. And present it he did - so much so that today everyone is talking about it.

Johnny Depp's latest stunt - real or just PR?

Taking the stage mid-show, Depp looked intoxicated and spaced out. He slurred his speech and generally didn’t seem to be in top form. Several parts of the speech were bleeped out, presumably because Depp forgot about broadcast regulations and swore on a few occasions.

Oh dear Johnny Depp. The actor came off a little too much like Jack Sparrow on Friday, when he took to the stage at the Hollywood Film Awards.

Everything You Need To Know About Kevin Smith's And Johnny Depp's Film Yoga Hosers


Johnny Depp Kevin Smith Michael Parks Haley Joel Osment Tony Hale Jason Mewes

After a run of poorly received films that have dented Johnny Depp’s reputation as a box-office magnet, the Hollywood superstar must be keen to move onto pastures anew. For his newest venture, Depp has teamed up with cult filmmaker Kevin Smith in a high-concept action movie based around the exploits of a pair of teen yoga fanatics and their fight against evil spirits. Depp’s daughter Lily-Rose and Smith’s daughter Harley Quinn will take the lead roles whilst Depp will co-star in the curiously entitled project, Yoga Hosers. 

Johnny DeppIn recent years, Depp's box-office status has tailed off after some poor performances.

Set in rural Canada, Smith has written the film and will direct it when it begins production. The story will follow the two girls as they battle a mysterious and ancient evil that threatens a planned party by rising from the underground, penetrating through a spiritual netherworld to usurp the two girl’s weekend plans to attend the coolest party in town. It will mark the second venture by Smith in a trilogy of films, nicknamed the “True North Trilogy” set in the vast and spacious Canadian countryside. The first, Tusk, is currently scheduled to do the rounds in the Autumnal film festival circuit and features largely the same cast as Yoga Hosers. Harley Quinn and Lily Rose also appear in Tusk in roles that are synonymous with Smith’s directorial oeuvre: convenience store clerks. For Yoga Hosers, however, the girl will take on much more pro-active roles.

Mia Wasikowska Lindsay Duncan Johnny Depp

Pictures have emerged of Mia Wasikowska, Lindsay Duncan and Ed Speleers filming scenes for 'Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass' on location in Gloucester. 

The on-set photos give a fascinating insight into the sequel to Tim Burton’s 2010 film. Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Mia Wasikowska and Helena Bonham Carter are this time joined by Sacha Baron Cohen, in a film that is said to revisit Lewis Carroll’s stories with an “all-new new tale that travels back to Underland —and back in Time.”

Depp stars once again as The Mad Hatter in yet another chance for him to reinvigorate his career, which has plummeted since the critics panned movies like The Tourist, Lone Ranger and Transcendence. However, for Wasikowska, working with Depp was exactly what she thought it would be: like working with a legendary actor

The new trailer for next year's Mortdecai appears promising, although it seems far more focused on character than plot. The plot, such as it is, takes inspiration from the Mortdecai series of books by author Kyril Bonfiglioli.

Anna Kendrick Johnny Depp Meryl Streep

Have you ever wondered what happened to Cinderella, Rapunzel and Little Red Riding Hood after they got their ‘happy ending’? Well Disney’s latest musical, Into the Woods might make you wish you’d never asked. In the movie, starring Anna Kendrick and Johnny Deep we sadly learn that some of our favourite fairytale characters actually didn't end up living so ‘happily ever after’ once their stories ended. 

Anna Kendrick Into the WoodsAnna Kendrick stars as Cinderella

Fairytales have certainly been enjoying a bit of a renaissance as of late with movies such as Snow White and the Huntsman and Maleficent presenting the alternative side to some classic stories. But Disney’s Into the Woods it’s not just another fairytale retelling, instead it explores what happens after the fairytale ended, calling into question everything we ever believed about ‘happily ever after.’

It's a voyage of education and cultural vibrancy - though it rarely occurs to this adventurous wanderer that it could be a little dangerous. He decides to travel to an isolated area of Manitoba in Canada to meet a man with many stories of his own adventures at sea, including being rescued from a sinking boat by a walrus. However, Wallace finds himself drugged at the man's house within hours and spends the next few terrifying days being tortured into behaving like a walrus while this mysterious Mr. Howe (Michael Parks) prepares to perform a gruesome and disfiguring operation involving a carefully prepared pair of ivory tusks.

Johnny Depp Jerry Bruckheimer Disney

Disney has confirmed that Pirates of Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales will be released on July 7, 2017 – a six-year gap between franchise entries. The tentpole, which stars Johnny Depp in the now-iconic lead role of Captain Jack Sparrow, was supposed to hit cinemas in the summer of 2015, but scripting issues have lead to major delays.

Disney will be looking forward to getting Dead Men off the ground; the last Pirates movie - On Stranger Tides - grossed $1.04 billion in 2011. So far, the franchise as a whole has accumulated something like  $3.7 billion in ticket sales alone, and merchandise for the movies sells well, too.

Benedict Cumberbatch will star alongside Johnny Depp in an upcoming film biopic of notorious US gangster and murderer, Whitey Bulger. Guy Pearce had initially landed the role of Billy Bulger, the brother of crime lord Whitey. Unfortunately, as the producers told Variety, "We were not able to make it work with Guy." Hence, Cumberbatch is replacing Pearce who was forced to drop out of the movie due to scheduling issues.

Is Johnny Depp Still Johnny Depp?


Johnny Depp Amber Heard

Johnny, Johnny, Johnny. What’s been going on? Don’t get us wrong, we’re big fans and always will be, but something’s gone a little awry of late. Well, for quite a while actually. Depp’s latest film Transcendence is inarguably a total box office flop. Taking just $11.5 million in its opening week was hugely disappointing, but from the sound of things it never even stood a chance. The critics have been pretty scathing, particularly of Depp. Antonia Quirke of the Financial Times remarked, “The only part of [Depp] still genuinely dynamic is his hair. I’m worried.” Yikes.

Johnny Depp Transcendence Depp fans feel that he has 'lost it' - whatever 'it' was

If it was just one flop it would have been easier to ignore, but sadly Depp has suffered from several over the past few years. His 2013 Disney film The Lone Ranger absolutely bombed at the box office, while Dark Shadows, The Rum Diary, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and The Tourist have all failed to win over critics and audiences. In fact, since 2010 Depp’s only real success was computer animated comedy Rango. Although, Rango is pretty fantastic, so that’s got to count for something.

Johnny Depp Wasn't In Relationship With Nancy Lekon, Won't Testify At Murder Trial


Johnny Depp Amber Heard

Johnny Depp will no longer have to testify in the murder case of Nancy Lekon. Lekon, a limo driver, ran over a woman with her vehicle after claiming that she was in a relationship with the Pirates of the Caribbean actor.  It has now been officially established that the actor was not in a relationship with the accused at the time of the murder (or, for that matter, at any other time) and therefore will not have to appear in court. 

Johnny Depp Nancy Lekon Depp is no longer required to testify at the murder case of Nancy Lekon

Depp was served a subpoena at the Los Angeles premiere of his latest film Transcendence, which called him to testify at the trial. It was initially believed that his testimony would be used to support Lekon’s plea of insanity. Now that it is clear to both prosecution and defence that Depp has no connection to the defendent and has nothing to do with the trial, he will no longer have to testify.

Christopher Nolan's Fingerprints Are All Over 'Transcendence'


Christopher Nolan Johnny Depp

Even though he's only listed as an executive producer, filmmaker Christopher Nolan's fingerprints are all over the new sci-fi thriller Transcendence, the directing debut of Oscar-winning cinematographer Wally Pfister, who has shot all of Nolan's films since 2000's break-out hit Memento.

Transcendence Review


Good

Far too slow-paced to work as a thriller and too shallow to properly challenge us as science fiction, this film is unlikely to please many audience members. That isn't to say that it's unwatchable: it looks terrific, and features a strong cast who are solid in thinly written roles. But the material promises far more than the film delivers.

At the centre is Will (Johnny Depp), an artificial intelligence expert who is attacked by an anti-technology terrorist group. With only weeks to live, his wife Evelyn (Rebecca Hall) and his colleague Max (Paul Bettany) upload his consciousness into his computer system, so after he dies he is able to transcend his humanity to solve far-advanced problems. He directs Evelyn to create a vast secret hideout to further develop the work, which progresses for two years until the terrorists, led by Bree (Kate Mara), find them. And now Will's old colleague Joseph (Morgan Freeman) and an FBI agent (Cillian Murphy) have to choose which side they're on.

This is precisely where the script fails: the sides are far too clear from the start. What should be a story packed with moral ambiguity is instead shaped into a straightforward good versus evil drama that betrays screenwriter Jack Paglen's mistrust of technology. And since everything is slanted so sharply, there's nowhere for the story or characters to go. First-time director Wally Pfister (the Oscar-winning Dark Knight cinematographer) makes sure everything look terrific, but everything moves so hesitantly that we feel like we're watching the movie in slow motion. It's as if the film is always on the verge of saying something important, but can never quite get the words out.

Weekend Box Office Update: "Rio 2" Soars, "Transcendence" Flops


Johnny Depp Chris Evans

The weekend box office continues to offer no surprised this week, with the Johnny Depp starrer Transcendence looking like a flop and likely to take fourth place behind previous chart toppers. The real fight is once again between Marvel’s latest blockbuster, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and the animated hit Rio 2. The jungle adventure (that’s Rio, in case you’re one of the few out there, who haven’t seen either) is looking likely to take the top spot this week, by the minimal margin of $2 million over Cap.

Johnny Depp
Despite Johnny Depp's star power, Transcendence is barely making a ripple at the box office.

Rio 2 is predicted to make roughly $27 million over the three day period, while Captain America is predicted similar earnings to last weekend - $25 million, according to Variety. Winter Soldier has grossed almost $510 million worldwide ($175 million domestically), while Rio 2 has tallied $177.2 million ($53 million domestically) through Thursday.

Any Regrets Johnny Depp? Here Are 10 Roles The Actor Could Have Had


Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp’s latest movie 'Transcendence' has just been released and, well, critics aren’t exactly bowled over by his latest offering. Come to think of it, they weren't too keen on his previous endeavour, 'The Lone Ranger', either. Whilst it might be too early to say that Depp has lost his midas touch on the box office, we’ve got to wonder if he sometimes regrets the choices he’s made in his career. Take for example these 10 movies, whose posters could have read: 'starring Johnny Depp'.
