One of our 15 most anticipated comedies of 2015 arrives next week (January 23) and stars Johnny Depp as the title character, Mortdecai.
What we love about the promise of this flick is that it features Depp playing oddball for laughs and that is where he can be at his best.
We’ve got a look at the making of Mortdecai in a new behind-the-scenes featurette released from Lionsgate that features Depp, Gwyneth Paltrow and Paul Bettany all talking about what makes Mortdecai so special.
Mortdecai is an international art dealer who becomes an international spy at the request of the UK government to retrieve a stolen priceless piece of art that if it fell into the wrong hands, could fund some serious nefarious activities.
Easy enough, right?
Yeah, except Mortdecai has to avoid Russian gangsters, international terrorists and an American beauty (Olivia Munn) who might just derail his entire mission.
