With the coming out of two brand new 'Public Enemies' television promos, more never-before-seen footage from the Johnny Depp-toplining crime drama are rolled out.
The two newly-released TV spots for "Public Enemies" offer never-before-seen footage as well as fresh dialog. Clocking in at around 30 seconds each, the two television promos titled "Indiana" and "Myth" were shown during the NBA playoffs and focus on presenting Johnny Depp as American legend John Dillinger.
"Public Enemies" revolves around legendary Depression-era outlaw John Dillinger and FBI agent Melvin Purvis. In the time when the Great Depression storms America, Dillinger and his gang are unstoppable in robbing banks. Trying to elevate his Bureau of Investigation into the national police force that became the FBI, J. Edgar Hoover declares that Dillinger is America's first Public Enemy Number One and sends Purvis in the thrill ride to capture the charismatic bank robber.
Adapted from Bryan Burrough's book Public Enemies: America's Greatest Crime Wave and the Birth of the FBI, 1933-34, the crime drama is directed and co-written by "Collateral" helmer Michael Mann. It sees Johnny Depp, Christian Bale and Marion Cotillard as well as Channing Tatum, Giovanni Ribisi, Stephen Dorff and Billy Crudup in the ensemble cast. Universal Pictures will distribute the movie across the U.S. on July 1.
