Alice Through the Looking Glass D23

Alice Through the Looking Glass acts as both sequel and prequel to Tim Burton’s 2010 film, with James Bobin jumping in as director from a script written by Linda Woolverton. (Burton is still on as producer.) While story details have been thin so far, today’s D23 live-action panel revealed that the big tipping point is a problem with the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp), which leads Alice (Mia Wasikowska) on a journey through time, aided by Time himself (Sacha Baron Cohen), “a peculiar creature who is part human, part clock.” Read More »

Edwards Scissorhands neighborhood

One of Tim Burton‘s best films is still Edward Scissorhands starring Johnny Depp. This year just happens to mark the 25th anniversary of the peculiar suburban fantasy about a misfit creation named Edward who has scissors for hands who ends up being taken in by family who in many ways is just as strange as the title character. So what better time to revisit the neighborhood where Burton’s story unfolds?

Just by looking at the suburban setting of Edward Scissorhands, you would think that the entire neighborhood was a film set. But it’s a real neighborhood, and it’s still around to this very day. But it looks remarkably different than it did in 1990 with one key difference that changes its entire appearance. See the Edward Scissorhands neighborhood 25 years later after the jump! Read More »

Black Mass trailer

If you haven’t been impressed with the work Johnny Depp has been putting out over the past decade, with disappointments like Mortdecai, The Tourist, Dark Shadows, The Lone Ranger, Transcendence, and tired Pirates of the Caribbean sequels, it looks like Black Mass might restore your faith in the actor.

A new trailer for the crime thriller from Crazy Heart and Out of the Furnace director Scott Cooper has just surfaced showing off more of what appears to be an Oscar-worthy performance from Johnny Depp as the infamous Boston gangster Whitey Bulger, who was given free criminal reign thanks to his brother (Benedict Cumberbatch) being situated at the FBI.

Johnny Depp's Jack Sparrow hospital visit

The internet has been rather charmed in the past by the charitable activities of Marvel Studios’ stars Chris Pratt and Chris Evans, stopping by a couple children’s hospitals as Star-Lord and Captain America respectively. But now another iconic Disney actor has been captured using his stardom to bring joy to some kids who need it the most.

Johnny Depp took a break from filming Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales to stop by Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital in Brisbane, Australia in full wardrobe as Captain Jack Sparrow. And thankfully, an Australian children’s show was there to film some of the adorable antics of the perpetually drunk pirate interacting with the kids.

Johnny Depp in Mortdecai

Alfonso Gomez-Rejon‘s Me and Earl and the Dying Girl was a scrappy indie effort populated by character actors and young rising stars.

Edward Scissorhands 25th anniversary

This December will mark the official 25th anniversary of Edward Scissorhands, easily one of the best films director Tim Burton has ever made. It represents a fond memory of a time when the filmmaker was still cooking up original stories for the big screen.

To honor this milestone anniversary, Fox Home Entertainment has a restored, special edition Blu-Ray hitting shelves in October. That’s a few months away, but it will be available for pre-order at Comic-Con this week, along with a limited edition lithograph created by Gallery 1988 artist Mark Englert. It’s a pretty wonderfil piece of work that you can see in full after the jump along with details on the Edward Scissorhands 25th anniversary Blu-Ray. Read More »

Black Mass trailer

“If nobody sees it,” Whitey Bulger tells his six-year old son in this new Black Mass trailer, “it didn’t happen.” But much of what we’ll see in this movie did happen, as Bulger, played here by Johnny Depp, was among the most notorious gangsters in Boston’s history — hell, in US history. He topped the FBI’s Most Wanted list for years. Depp may be channeling Jack Nicholson’s performance from The Departed, a performance which was also at least inspired by Bulger, but he still comes off as intense and terrifying in this new trailer.  Read More »

Black Mass trailer

Hollywood doesn’t give us a lot of great gangster movies anymore, so when there’s one on the horizon that looks promising, we all get excited. Is this the next Scarface, White Heat, Goodfellas or Godfather? We don’t know yet, but Black Mass certainly has a shot at success.

Directed by Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart) the film stars Johnny Depp as Boston gangster Whitey Bulger, who became an FBI informant to help take down the Italian mob. The film co-stars Joel Edgerton, Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Bacon, Dakota Johnson, Peter Sarsgaard, Jesse Plemons, Corey Stoll, Rory Cochrane, Sienna Miller, Adam Scott and opens in September.
