It’s not uncommon for R-rated movies to put out an “unrated” (and therefore sexier and/or bloodier) cut for the home video market. But Mortdecai, unconventional rogue that he is, is going the other direction.
Lionsgate is releasing a PG-13 version of the Johnny Depp flop through Digital HD. You know, to reach all those ninth graders who were dying to see a 52-year-old actor play a character from the 1970s. More on the Mortdecai PG-13 release after the jump. Read More »

Birdman, directed byAlejandro González Iñárritu from a script by Alexander Dinelaris, is pretty cynical about Hollywood product. But if things had gone the way the film was originally scripted, it would have ended with an even more pointed jab at the studio franchise machine.
In the film, Michael Keaton plays an actor whose most popular role, Birdman, haunts him as he attempts to mount a stage play. The parallels between Birdman and Batman are impossible to miss. But the original script ended with a scene that took the film’s structure forward to another actor/character pair: Johnny Depp and his Pirates of the Caribbean alter-ego Jack Sparrow. Read More »

The Internet had a collective freakout when Kevin Smith revealed his clean-shaven look for his next film, Yoga Hosers. But otherwise, so far Yoga Hosers looks a lot like Smith’s last film, Tusk. The surly convenience store employees are back. So is the maple-syrup-filled convenience store set. And also returning is Johnny Depp‘s Guy Lapointe, along with his signature beret.
Check out the first Yoga Hosers Johnny Depp image after the jump. Read More »
Actors have been “overpaid” for a long time. For the past few decades the biggest stars were getting 10, 20, 30 million dollars for a movie that maybe wasn’t even that good. Recently, things have begun to go away from that huge upfront sum. No, stars are taking less money upfront for more options on the back end. That encourages a better product, but also creates much bigger pay days. Sandra Bullock made around $75 million for Gravity. Robert Downey Jr. around $100 million for The Avengers. But somehow, you’re okay with that because the movies are good and they took a gamble at the beginning.
Most of these stars did not take a gamble and, in most cases, you can’t blame them. Forbes has complied their list of the ten most overpaid actors of 2014. They look at the “last three films each actor starred in before June 2014,” add the grosses, then divide by the total salary. What’s left is a return on investment number. The amount of money each actor grosses for every $1 paid. None of them lose money, but some make less than others. Read the most overpaid actors 2014 list. Read More »
After the lackluster fourth film in the Pirates of the Caribbean series, Disney has been taking its time developing the fifth movie. But here we are, with Pirates 5 — aka Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales — set to be directed by Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg (Kon-Tiki) in Australia early next year. Johnny Depp returns as Captain Jack Sparrow, but now there’s the suggestion that this fifth film may actually be a soft Pirates of the Caribbean reboot. Read More »

If you’re starting to wonder if Johnny Depp is picking all of his movies based on how ridiculous they let him look, Mortdecai won’t do much to dispel that notion. Depp leads the comedy caper as “debonair art dealer and part time rogue Charlie Mortdecai,” who’s tasked with tracking down a painting something something Nazi gold. It doesn’t really matter, because the whole movie is really just Depp’s excuse to sport a fake mustache/accent combo that rivals the one in Tusk. Watch the latest Mortdecai trailer after the jump.
