Johnny Depp Is the Eccentric 'Mortdecai' in Comedy's First Trailer


Based on a character created by Kyril Bonfiglioi, Charlie Mortdecai is an art dealer on a quest to recover a stolen painting.

Johnny Depp tackles yet another eccentric character in his new movie "Mortdecai", which first trailer has just been released ahead of the early 2015 premiere. Playing the titular character, Depp is described as a "debonair art dealer and part-time rogue."

Juggling some angry Russians, the British Mi5, his impossibly leggy wife and an international terrorist, Charlie Mortdecai must traverse the globe armed only with his good looks and special charm. He is in a race to recover a stolen painting rumored to contain the code to a lost bank account filled with Nazi gold.

Trailer shows that Mortdecai is oblivious to his surrounding, leading to a series of slapsticks ala Inspector Clouseau. It also gives highlights to the comedy's supporting characters played by Gwyneth Paltrow, Ewan McGregor and Paul Bettany among others.

"Mortdecai" is adapted from Kyril Bonfiglioi's 1970s series of novels by relatively unknown scribe Eric Aronson. The movie is directed by David Koepp and will be released on February 6, 2015 in the United States.
